RG3 Lacks Leadership Ability Needed By Struggling Redskins

When a team struggles, leaders emerge to try and right the ship. That leader dubbed by many should be third-year quarterback Robert Griffin III. Frankly RG3 should be the leader of this team, however his actions prove that he is anything but capable of putting this team on his back. Instead, it's finger pointing and essentially throwing his teammates under the bus when he himself hasn't done anything special.
“It takes 11 men," Griffin said after the game. "It doesn’t take one guy, and that’s proven. If you want to look at the good teams in this league and the great quarterbacks, the Peytons and the Aaron Rodgers' those guys don’t play well if their guys don’t play well. They don’t.
"We need everybody. I need every one of those guys in that locker room, and I know they’re looking at me saying the same thing.”
Even though Griffin's statements weren't completely inaccurate, as a quarterback and leader of the Redskins, it is his job to shoulder most of the blame. RG3 did take a little blame by saying "he needed to do better", but the way he stated his words above, make it seem like he would have done better if he team did better. Those are not the words or thoughts of a leader.
