No excuses for Redskins in Denver loss

Robert Griffin III was battered and bruised during Sunday’s 45-21 loss to Denver.

When all was said and done he produced a season-low 45.4 passer rating after the Broncos held him to just 132 yards and intercepted him twice.

When asked about struggling passing game wide receiver Pierre Garcon didn’t mince words when speaking with WJFK-FM’s Grant Paulsen.

"We've had trouble passing all year to tell you the truth. I can only run the routes, try to make separation. That's the only thing I really can do."

Garcon was targeted 11 times on Sunday and finished with seven catches for just 46 yards. There were several occasions where Griffin wasn’t able to hit open receivers.

On the season Denver’s pass defense was giving up 380.6 yards per game, but the Redskins were unable to exploit their secondary.

"Doesn't matter (who you're playing)," Garcon said. "If you suck at passing, you suck at passing ... We've just got to figure it out."

Garcon did clarify that his rant wasn’t directed at Griffin but about the system in general.

It’s easy to see that Griffin’s sophomore campaign has been a bumpy ride at best.

As a rookie he had a touchdown to interception ratio of 20:5 this season that number stands at 9:8.
