According to Jason Reid of the Washington Post, Redskins' coach Jay Gruden is "now done with [Redskins' QB Robert Griffin III]," but according to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, Griffin has a "real chance" of making another start this season. The team would start him again in an attempt to further evaluate him and muster up some trade value for him if he does well. (Source: Fox Sports
Fantasy Impact: After Griffin's phenomenal season, who really expected that we would be at this point with him? It's rather unbelievable, but what's also unbelievable is that Griffin hasn't won a game in over a full year now. His bad mechanics and decision making are difficult problems to correct and Chris Cooley could definitely be correct in his claim that RG3 has "the yips." The yips is a term meaning that an athlete forgot how to do something basic that they have done a million times before, a la throw a football, slide properly, use proper footwork, go through progressions, make correct dropbacks, etc. We saw Griffin do this before in 2012, so we know he's capable. But Griffin's penchant for dodging ownership of his failures over the past couple years has put him in hot water with teammates and the coaching staff. The atmosphere has become toxic in Washington for Griffin, so a change of scenery may do him some good.
