In an unusual -- but not forbidden -- sight for an NFL locker room, RGIII's father commiserated with the second-year passer and attended his postgame presser before trailing the quarterback back to his locker to continue the chat.
"Yes, it's frustrating. We're frustrated. Everyone's tired of losing -- us, fans, the media, everybody," RGIII told reporters after the game. "The one thing to take away -- one thing that we're not is quitters."
Griffin appeared agitated by a reporter asking him to clarify how the team -- and its quarterback -- are "making strides" during a season that has Washington sunk into last place in the NFC East.
"What am I supposed to do? Come up here and talk about how bad we are? I mean, that's not my job," Griffin said. "My job is to answer your questions and move on to the next day and get better. It's not anything personal. You're the only one asking those questions, but I love my guys. I'll go to war with them any day."
Nothing has gone as planned for Griffin or the three-win Redskins following an offseason drenched in hype. His knee looks improved, but RGIII's play has trailed off sharply, and Monday night's loss to the 49ers was a depressing watch, largely because of how lost Washington appears at every position.
Especially under center.
