Redskins' Gruden: RG3 critique was a 'mistake'
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says he made a mistake when he publicly criticized Robert Griffin III's "fundamental flaws."
The coach on Wednesday also said it was his fault that the Redskins have become more about Griffin than about the team.
Gruden said going forward that he will try not to "single anybody out" and that "corrections should be in-house."
On Monday, Gruden gave a searing review of Griffin's performance in the 27-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The coach also said Griffin should focus on his own play and not his teammates.
Griffin had little to say on Wednesday, repeating many times that he was "focused on San Francisco" during his weekly news conference.
