Robert Griffin III says Rams did 'a lot of dirty things' against Redskins

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.”

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.”
