    [rQUOTEr]Gruden prepared to bench Griffin

    If Jay Gruden's stinging words this week about quarterback Robert Griffin III have not resonated, team sources tell ESPN that the Washington Redskins coach is prepared to speak louder if the third-year quarterback does not perform more consistently Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

    That means Griffin could be yanked Sunday in favor of Colt McCoy, who is 2-0 as Griffin's sub, or an evaluation will be made to make a move next week.

    Gruden's criticism has cited a breakdown in fundamentals, Griffin's inability to overcome adversity and even that he has been "coddled."

    What isn't known is how owner Daniel Snyder will react to the harsh treatment of his handpicked franchise quarterback, especially if Griffin is benched Sunday in San Francisco.

    Through four games, Griffin has thrown for 763 yards, with 2 total touchdowns, 3 interceptions and a QBR of 34.2. The Redskins are 0-2 since he returned from a dislocated left ankle.[/rQUOTEr]

    Redskins gave up a kings ransom to get him, and his eventual failure will set them back as a franchise for decades.... teams will always be reminded of him whenever there is a chance to "trade up" for an unproven QB.

    In a sport where the average lifespan of a player is 5 years, trading a handful of picks will cost them decades? Really? Did trading for Ricky Williams - an even bigger price - set New Orleans back decades?

    They should just contract the franchise, solves the name problem at the same time.

    Defense sucks yes but the reason we lost today was because this fraud ass offense that we have. So many missed opportunities, too much talent on offense to be so bad.

    for once, not really hyperbole when the announcer says 'that might be the greatest catch i've ever seen'
