Robert Griffin III knows he made a mistake by staying in the Seahawks game

robert griffin III 3Washington Redskins quarterback told ESPN the Magazine that he realizes that staying in last season’s playoff game against the Seahawks was a mistake.

“I don’t feel like playing against the Seahawks was a mistake. But I see the mistake IN IT,” Griffin said, via Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post.


Griffin elaborated.

“With what happened and how everything was running — you take me out. If that happened again next year, I’d come out of the game and sit until I was 100% healthy.”

It’s great to see Griffin admit that he made a mistake, hopefully he will learn from it.

It was obvious to me that he shouldn’t have been playing at the end of the regular season just two weeks after getting hit by Haloti Ngata.  Yes he was OK until the playoffs, but he was at risk the entire time.
