WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss tried to set the record straight Wednesday, a day after making controversial remarks about quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“I was trying to send a message out for everybody. Every week it’s someone new that’s saying things and it shouldn’t be that way,” said Moss
During a radio interview on Tuesday, Moss was quoted as saying that Griffin should “stand up and say ‘me’ or 'I' when talking about Sunday’s loss to the Eagles and that final interception he threw in the end zone.
Moss tried to clarify those comments by insisting they were only meant as a lesson on how to diffuse a potential media firestorm.
“In order for us not to be where we’re at today in terms of the media wanting more, we just have to nip it in the bud” said Moss “I’m going to blame it on me when I didn’t make a play because at the end of the day, that’s who everybody sees last.”
When asked about the comments Moss made, Griffin responded, “I talked to London and those guys and they know what I was trying to say. Maybe I can say ‘I’ and 'me' a lot more, but then people can take that the wrong way, too.”
While those on the outside may see this as a growing disconnection within the team, players insist that they will remain unified.
“We don’t have a locker room where we point fingers,” said linebacker and team captain London Fletcher.
“Our back is against the wall,” added fullback Darrel Young. “Everything that everyone says is going to be negative and that’s fine, but we can’t let outside sources come between us.”
