On Tuesday, we brought you comments from Robert Griffin III that sounded one way, but were clearly meant in another. Those comments, if you recall, centered around Griffin sharing that he doesn’t think Donovan McNabb is an idiot, when he clearly does, and that it’s best that the two don’t talk.
A bit later, McNabb responded to Griffin’s comments on his NBCSports radio show. A response that culminated with McNabb saying that Griffin is “getting brainwashed” in Washington.
Here’s the transcript from DC Sports Bog:
“I’m just trying to help him. Clearly the young generation, they think they have all the answers. He’s going through a little turmoil right now, trying to make it out on the field, and it’s unfortunate. But that’s where we’re at right now as far as these young quarterbacks who think they have all the answers. Until things start to fall apart and come down trembling on you, then you want some help. But it’s a shame. I honestly think that over there in Washington, he’s getting brainwashed. He’s getting input from whoever it may be on, ‘There’s no reason to talk to him, it didn’t work out here.’ If they expressed their dislike when I was there, or what I used to do, so be it. But, I hope the best for the young man, but the direction he’s going in is really a direction he does not want to do. He does not want to go there with me, especially when I got the last word.”
And here are McNabb’s comments in their entirety via ComcastSportsNet.
I’m not quite sure how I really feel about all of this. Is this just McNabb continuing to be bitter about his tenure in Washington or is he really trying to help Griffin. Whatever it is, it has the potential to be pretty entertaining.
