Santana Moss backtracks from RG3 comments, then says the same thing

Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss was clearly upset today after seeing numerous headlines on Wednesday morning that he said Robert Griffin III needs to take more responsibility for their losses.

“I read a quote and it said, ‘Moss says RGIII needs to take more responsibility for losses,’” Moss said, via the Washington Post.  “That never came out of my mouth.  I said that if I’m put in the situation, as a leader, I will stand up and say, ‘me, I,’ and that’s what I said.  So that’s what happens.  People see stuff that’s written or said and if it’s not said directly, then don’t lose no sleep on it.  And me and Robert talked today and that’s the type of relationship we have.  We can talk and get to know or to express what was really said because that’s what we have in this locker room.”

Once again Moss essentially called out RG3 without trying to.  He’s clearly upset and frustrated.

“I was sending a message to players who might be put in that situation,” Moss said.  “What I said was if I’m a quarterback or if I’m a leader, if I’m the person whoever, if I drop a ball, then it’s me.  It don’t matter how it came or what the other guy did.  It’s me.  But at that time, I was picturing myself as being the quarterback and what could I tell you all to stop the madness is, the only thing I can say out of my mouth is at the end of the day, I’m the guy last that has to make the play, whether it’s a play to win it and we won it or it’s a play that we didn’t win.  If we won, I’m gonna say, ‘Hey, we did a great job.’  If we didn’t, I’m gonna say, ‘I have to control us, our game, better.  And I have to do a better job,’ because at the end of the day, that’s what y’all want to hear or not.  But that’s what I feel that’ s best.  And that’s what I tried to get across.”

The Redskins need to win a game badly.  Things are getting uglier by the week.
