ASHBURN, Va. — Asked if it really matters whether he’s liked by his teammates, Robert Griffin III had the classic turn-the-tables response.
“Do you like everybody you work with?” he responded to the reporter.
The Washington Redskins quarterback went on to say that winning is “really not even about that,” that it’s more about other topics that several veterans have stressed, such as: “We can’t let anybody try to tear us apart from the outside in.”
Griffin conceded Wednesday that there were “a few out of the group” of his teammates who might have not been in favor of his regaining the starting quarterback job two weeks ago after Colt McCoy led back-to-back victories.
Those few were the target of a brief unity speech delivered by usually quiet receiver DeSean Jackson last week before the team split up for a bye week vacation.
