Robert Griffin III dismisses talk of locker room discord

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III downplayed reports that there's locker room discord conencted to a lack of support from his teammates.

He dismissed those alleged issues.

“I know it’s been pushed and pushed and pushed, and everyone thinks [locker room reports] from the inside out,” Griffin told reporters. “But we’re strong in that locker room. We feel like we can’t let any of these reports or anything divide us. Right now, we have to be responsible for what we do. Right now, we’re 3-6, and I think everybody in this room knows it. We have a hunger to win.”

Lately, teammates have been sticking up for Griffin, including DeSean Jackson.

“I mean, that’s what teammates do,” Griffin said. “That’s what a family is. I think we’re getting closer as a family on this team, and what DeSean said, like we said before, is just addressing the few. But we don’t know who those guys are, and it doesn’t matter. Everybody’s in line.

"Everybody’s focused on one goal — winning football games, looking in the mirror and saying, ‘What can I do to help this team win, and what can I do better? What can I cut out of my game? What plays do I need to make?’ Everybody’s going to be that guy, and that’s a good thing to have.”
