    Say this for Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan: He hasn’t put a muzzle on his rookie quarterback. On Wednesday, Robert Griffin III said that the St. Louis Rams crossed the line with some of their tactics in Sunday’s game.

    “There was some extracurricular stuff after plays,†Griffin said, according to Tarik El-Bashir of “They were doing a lot of dirty things. The game was unprofessional.â€

    El-Bashir cited two examples that RGIII might have been referring to: On one, linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar delivered a forearm to Griffin’s head after Griffin released the ball. On the other, Griffin took a high hit from safety Quintin Mikell that Griffin thought was helmet-first.

    “Some of the shots were cheap, of that nature,†Griffin said. “It’s nothing I can control. Teams are going to try and hit me because they don’t think that I can take a hit. I think I’ve proved over my career that I can. It’s football.â€

    well, fisher's teams have a reputation for that stuff so it wouldn't shock me i suppose. i didn't watch this game so i can't really comment on any particular things in it though.

    Doesn't matter. You're not at Baylor anymore homey. You're in the NFL. People are going to hit you a little harder and sometimes a little later.

    The Titans, under Fisher, were definitely a rough bunch. I think they led the league in personal foul a lot.

    Nothing like making sure you're on everyone's radar for telling tales out of school.

    Now we'll see how much abuse you can really take...NFL abuse. This ain't your daddy's Alma mater...

    This. If he wasn't already a target because of all the press he surely is now. Good luck kid!

    He was just putting a bug in the replacement refs ears. They may have missed some calls last week, but he may benefit from some calls this week because of what he said.

    On occasion, you might see a coach on the sideline telling a ref to watch for something that a team is doing. Why is this any different?

    I would agree if he was talking about what he saw on film of the Bengals. I don't think talking about his last opponent will help him get calls this week.

    This, especially with the douches that are calling games now. They need to concentrate on just getting the calls right.
