Head coach Jay Gruden was overly critical of Griffin this week and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen says the Redskins will not hesitate to make a switch at quarterback this week.
If the Redskins struggle early on against the 49ers their could be a quick decision to place Colt McCoy in the game. McCoy is 2-0 in place of Griffin and the failed Kirk Cousins experiment.
Gruden has not made any secret that he feels that Griffin;s fundamentals have broken down and that the third-year quarterback was “coddled” by upper management.
Through four games, Griffin has thrown for 763 yards, with 2 total touchdowns, 3 interceptions and a QBR of 34.2. The Redskins are 0-2 since he returned from a dislocated left ankle and are a significant underdog this weekend.
