WASHINGTON - This Gruden-Griffin thing isnt done yet, and it still might not pan out.
WASHINGTON - This Gruden-Griffin thing isnt done yet, and it still might not pan out. Jack Lambert Jersey .But in an example that shows the magnitude of victory after a long losing spell, all suddenly seems workable between the Washington Redskins coach and quarterback.After Robert Griffin III got his first real win in more than a year — 27-24 over the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday — his most meaningful statement reflected a desire to stay right where he is.You would think a 3-11 football team would just quit and were not, he said. So that shows the character that we have, and I dont want to be anywhere else.On Sunday, first-year coach Jay Gruden was also knocking down barriers, whether real or perceived. He has been highly critical of Griffin this season, and its an open question as to whether Griffin is truly the right quarterback for Grudens offence. But the door is clearly open for the two to work together and succeed in seasons to come.A lot of the talk of me not liking Robert, or Robert not liking me, I think has been a little bit misinterpreted or misunderstood, Gruden said. Obviously I have a great respect for Robert and what he does, and Im happy with the way he came out and competed.Im glad he likes it here, he likes his teammates, and I think everybody has a genuine respect for what he does as a football player and what hes gone through. Hes just got to continue to build off his performance, and hopefully against Dallas next week he can finish the season on a high note and have something positive going into next year. But its good to hear him say that.Regaining the starting job after a season-ending neck injury to Colt McCoy, Griffin completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards with one interception against the Eagles. He didnt wow anybody, but he managed the offence well and avoided crippling mistakes.It helped that the game remained competitive throughout, allowing Gruden to call more running plays to maintain a balanced offence. Griffin was sacked only twice — a major improvement from recent Redskins games — in part because he wasnt throwing nearly every down in catch-up mode in the second half.Gruden said he didnt regret benching Griffin last month, saying the quarterback needed to take a step back and learn a little bit more.But what the Redskins (4-11) needed most was any kind of win by any means after six straight losses. That, more than anything, moved Griffin up a notch in the coachs eyes. Griffins only previous victory as a starter this season came in Week 2 when he left in the first quarter with an injury.Winning football games is the only thing that matters to me for a quarterback, Gruden said.Gruden confirmed that Griffin will start the season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, then emphasized the importance of finishing the season strong.You dont want to have a 10-game losing streak going into the off-season — then youre not sure what youre doing is right and theres question marks going in, Gruden said. But if you have a couple-of-game winning streak and you see some results from your hard work, then I think people buy in a little bit more, the players will listen a little bit more to the coaches, maybe.___AP NFL websites: and Joseph White on Twitter: L.C.
