Robert Griffin III 'focused on San Francisco'

Criticized by coach Jay Gruden for fundamental lapses and talking about his teammates, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III gave a bland interview today.

Griffin repeatedly said he was "focused on San Francisco," saying that nine times.

"Jay wants me to play better, I want to play better," Griffin said. "We're focused on San Francisco and making that happen. So that's all I've got to say about that."

“It is what it is. You get what you ask for so I'm focused on San Francisco. Jay wants me to focus on San Francisco. That's what I'm going to do."

On Monday, Gruden said that Griffin III needs to worry about himself.

"It's his job to worry about his position, his footwork, his fundamentals, his reads, his progressions, his job at the quarterback position," Gruden said. "It's my job to worry about everybody else. And, yes, everybody else needs to improve. There's no question about it. But it's not his place. His place is to talk about himself and he knows that. He just elaborated a little bit too much."

Griffin said his relationship with Gruden is "great."

"My job is to focus on what I can focus on and what I can control," Griffin said. "So Jay wants me to play better. I'm just focused on getting better at my craft. I'm not worried about anything else."
