Steven Jackson Fires Back At Robert Griffin III: ‘It’s Not The Big 12′

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III called the St. Louis Rams a dirty, unprofessional team after the Rams stopped the Redskins from advancing to 2-0. As you would expect following allegations like those from Griffin, the Rams have fired back.

Rams running back Steven Jackson took the most direct shot at the rookie signal-caller by hitting RG3 with a knock on his college football days.

“It’s not the Big 12,” Jackson said. “I don’t think we’re a dirty team.  I think we’re a team that’s hungry, young and eager and ready to make a turnaround in the franchise.”

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher backed up Jackson’s stance that the team is not a dirty one. He, too, had some comments regarding the allegations but he voiced them with less of a direct insult to Griffin.

“We’re going to play aggressive and we’re going to play hard to the whistle and that’s it,” Fisher said. “This is the National Football League, he’s going to be a good player and if he took issue with how we played, so be it. I’m not concerned about that. I’m more concerned about the Bears.”

The Rams aren’t a dirty team. They just play very physical and are a scrappy bunch that have taken up the attitude of their head coach. It also helps when you’ve got a nuisance like Cortland Finnegan in the defensive backfield getting under the skin of opposing receivers.

    Lol…the Rams ARE a dirty team, as are ALL teams coached by Jeff Fisher. He is a pupil of Buddy Ryan, just like his buddy Gregg Williams. They coach their guys to play extremely physical and “push the envelope” on what is acceptable. If you watched the game you saw them give extra shots and elbows after the whistle. Hell, they even have the guy who proclaimed he want’s to be known as the dirtiest player in the game in Cortland Finnegan. It is NOT why they won…they did that by out playing the Skins’ defense. But spare me the they are just scrappy crap. They are most definitely dirty.
