RGIII believes Washington can turn things around.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III believes that his team are “real close” to ending their losing streak.
Having lost their opening three games of the season, there are doubts over whether or not the Redskins can emerge from the NFC East despite making a similar recovery last season.
However, Griffin is of the opinion that they can turn things around while he also deals with the scrutiny over his own game as he continues his comeback from knee surgery.
“I think we’re real close,” Griffin said as per ESPN.
“We can see it on the tape. No one wants to be sitting here 0-3. That’s not a good thing for us. It’s not who we are,” he added.
Washington fell to a 3-6 start to the campaign last year, but recovered to end the regular season with a 10-6 record and clinched the NFC East title.
However, things began to go wrong in the playoffs with Griffin suffering a torn ACL against the Seattle Seahawks.
Despite on-going doubts over whether or not the franchise quarterback can return to the level he displayed prior to the injury, he believes that things will start to improve.
“Everybody is disappointed in the way that we’ve played, and the only thing we can do is change that on Sundays. I can’t change it up here. I can’t tell you guys any secrets about what is going to happen or how we’re going to do it. We just have got to go do it,” he continued.
Coach Mike Shanahan has no doubts over Griffin’s ability to play a part in helping to change their fortunes, but he will hope the turnaround starts sooner rather than later with the Redskins set to take on the Oakland Raiders this weekend.
