Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III tackled critics via his Facebook account.

Griffin III, following a disappointing season, posted a lengthy reaction to his season.

"You think I want it to be national news that I visit a beach?" Griffin III wrote. "Or shop at Walmart? Or wore red shoes instead if green yesterday? Well I don't," Griffin wrote. "I'm 'striving' for greatness just like my fellow teammates do. The 'attention' that comes with being a QB in the league is what you are referring to. All the press conferences and talking to the media? Mandated by the league to have a press conference every week during the season and during team activities during the off-season."

Griffin addressed being on commercials for Subway and adidas and his documentary about his knee rehabilitation heading into a 3-13 season.

"Oh wait, you must be talking about the Commercials? Right? Oh ok so what was the deal with those in 2012? WE won the division," Griffin wrote. "So in 2013 when WE get knocked down, and finish last it's because of the commercials? If that is your reasoning I have nothing more to say. WE will get back up. That is what matters. I hope I answered your question well enough. And that you keep supporting the team."
