Santana Moss criticizes RGIII for not being more accountable
Santana Moss has been through plenty of quarterbacks in his 13 seasons in the NFL, so he’s heard plenty of excuses as to why things have gone wrong on the field.
In a radio segment on Tuesday, Moss took issue with Robert Griffin III not taking more of the blame for his game-ending interception in Sunday’s loss to the Eagles.
“If we’re going to win games, we need to win games with our guy saying, ‘At the end of the day, I didn’t make a play,’ regardless of if it wasn’t him,” Moss said on the “LaVar and Dukes” show on 106.7 The Fan in Washington. “And that’s how I feel. Because that’s what we’re out there to do.”
The defending NFC East champions are in last place at 3-7. While they lead the league in rushing at 155 yards per game, Griffin and the passing game have been up and down.
“We had a certain concept with running and nobody got open so I was backing up, and in the situation where you get a sack there, it ends the game,” Griffin said Sunday of the team’s last play. “I was trying to throw the ball to the back of the end zone. It didn’t get to where I wanted it to go.”
Moss, 34, is one of the leaders among the skill position players despite catching only 23 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown this season.
“I don’t need to be going back and forth in the media about who didn’t do this and who didn’t do what,” Moss said. “At the end of the day, (if) I was seen with the ball in my hand last, as a quarterback, I’m saying, and if it didn’t get done then, I’m going to let you know it was me. Whether it was me or not, it was me. And I’m going to get better. And we’re going to get better together.”
The Redskins host the 49ers on Monday night.
