Robert Griffin III Says Rams Took Shots at Him Sunday

Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday he absorbed a number of cheap shots during last Sunday’s loss in St. Louis, and called the game “unprofessional,” Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.

“They were definitely going after me,” Griffin said.

Griffin acknowledged that he has a small frame of reference, given that he has played only two NFL games. But he also said of the Rams, “They were doing a lot of dirty things…. The game was unprofessional.”

One Rams defender told him on the field he would be hit after every play, Griffin said. His reply was that he expected that in football.

“Some of the shots were cheap,” Griffin said.

Griffin’s comments Wednesday echoed earlier remarks by other Redskins players and coach Mike Shanahan. Other players accused the Rams of taking cheap shots after plays and said the replacement officials lost control of the game. Shanahan said he’d never witnessed another game like it.
