    Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who endured one anonymously sourced attack after another late in the season, responded to critics via his verified Facebook page.

    Griffin was responding to a post from an unhappy fan, who commented on the high amount of attention that the second-year quarterback receives.

    Griffin tried to explain why he gets some of it, and that he doesn't like all the attention he does get. He began the post by saying he doesn't usually do this because of the opinions that follow any action -- or inaction.

    "You think I want it to be national news that I visit a beach? Or shop at Walmart? Or wore red shoes instead if green yesterday? Well I don't," Griffin wrote. "I'm 'striving' for greatness just like my fellow teammates do. The 'attention' that comes with being a QB in the league is what you are referring to. All the press conferences and talking to the media? Mandated by the league to have a press conference every week during the season and during team activities during the off-season."

    Anyone think that Jay Gruden may want to back out of being the Redskins HC? Looks like the team is imploding.

    Not much has changed since his hire!

    RGIII is starting to sound a bit like a narcissist.
