One day after comments to a local radio station that appeared critical of teammate Robert Griffin III, Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss said he and his quarterback have no issues.

“Me and Robert talked today and that’s the type of relationship we have and get to express what was really said,” Moss told said prior to Wednesday’s practice at Redskins Park. “Because that’s what we have in this locker room. We don’t have no divided locker room at all. At a time like this in our season, people are waiting to see that….people wants to see that and wants to write about that and wants to talk about that. That’s what we’re not about.”


Moss had told radio station 106.7 – The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes program on Tuesday that he wished Griffin had taken personal responsibility for his last-minute interception in Sunday’s crippling 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

One of Griffin’s other quotes also appeared critical of offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and the offensive game plan: [The Eagles] did a good job of scheming us up. Obviously, we were able to run the ball effectively, but in the passing game; they kind of had us. They kind of knew what was coming before it was coming and that is disheartening. But we still have to find ways and that’s what I told the guys—no matter what’s going on out there, we’re the players, we have to make the plays work.”

Moss’ point: Even if a specific play isn’t entirely Griffin’s fault, by shouldering the blame he keeps it from becoming a major media story, which it has. ESPN, on programming throughout the day on Wednesday, discussed possible dysfunction in the Washington locker room. That’s a notion players disputed.

“I’ve been on teams where the minute something goes wrong, guys start to finger point,” veteran linebacker London Fletcher said.” The offense is blaming the defense, the defense is blaming the offense. You’re blaming this guy and that guy, this coach or that coach. We don’t have that type of team.”

Fletcher insisted that there are Redskins coaches who have stood up in meetings and taken blame for putting players in bad positions. The same has happened with individual players. Moss and Fletcher are just the latest players to insist, despite a 3-7 record, the locker room hasn’t turned against Griffin – or each other.  

“What I was saying is that, for future references and if you’re ever put in this situation again – anybody – it’s how we can control it so there won’t be no confusion,” Moss said. “Because if you nip it in the bud right then and there then you don’t have to worry about that story being turnt somewhere else.”
