Robert Griffin III has found it difficult to replicate his captivating 2012 rookie campaign. The Washington Redskins quarterback has labored mightily to meet lofty expectations in his sophomore season, and questions surrounding his recent string of subpar performances have permeated his postgame news conferences.
"He's obviously a man and he makes his own decisions, but I personally don't feel he should be playing right now," Brooks said, per CSN Washington.
"I don't think he should be playing," Brooks added. "You can see it. Everybody can see it. Everybody can see it."
Griffin was sacked four times and was constantly under pressure Monday night. He finished the game 17 of 27 through the air for a lackluster 127 yards and one interception. Niners linebacker Aldon Smith tallied the other two takedowns.
Despite RGIII's underwhelming outing, Brooks heaped praise on the second-year quarterback for his resilience.
"He's a man. He has the heart of a warrior and is going to go out there and play regardless of the circumstance," Brooks said. "Everybody can see it. Everybody can see it. He shouldn't be playing."
