Robert Griffin III knows he's getting criticized for playing hurt in the Washington Redskins' playoff loss. On Monday, he offered his latest defense on Twitter. The rookie quarterback tweeted: "Many may question, criticize & think they have all the right answers. But few have been in the line of fire in battle."

The Redskins were awaiting the results of an MRI on Griffin's right knee, which he re-injured twice during Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Griffin did not appear in the locker room during the two hours it was open to reporters Monday morning. Teammates defended Griffin, saying it's in an athlete's competitive nature to keep playing as long as possible.

    No, but don't get mad at the player for being determined and wanting to stay in. That's what they're paid for.

    I think this is a "Monday morning quarterback" situation. Its easy to say no now because you know the result. If he had limped around and he had one the headline would be all about the courage RGIII showed. If he had come out early and they lost, his toughness would have been questioned.
    Play until the coach/ doctor pulls you out!

    That's a question that does not make any sense. He injured himself. For being a so great QB he made the right decision to leave!

    Jeopardizing his future was a misguided decision. now it sounds like he will not be able to play for all of next season. Was that a good decision for the Redskins future?

    He did what he was supposed to do. It isn't his fault. It is the coaches job to win, and protect his franchise QB. Shanahan, founding member of the Rat family is the bad guy here.

    The team doctor and trainer have the right to overrule the coach when it comes to injured player personnel . The doctor should have pulled him but the trainer may not have a job if he did .

    It is a foolish mistake to risk permanent damage after an injury occurs.

    Knee injuries are bad enough when you aren't an athlete - they can be career ending when you are.

    Everyone can play Monday morning QB but RG3 was their best chance of winning. He has some serious issues now with the MRI results (partial tears in ACL & LCL) that have come out. Hopefully he will be back by the beginning of next season but it will be quite sometime before we see the RG3 that we saw early in the season.

    This is selfishness and greed at its highest level. This young man is truly a gifted athlete and will make the Redskins a potential playoff team for years to come. To gamble all of that future for a shortened and diminished capacity to play a little longer was foolish and unforgivable. The club's future and the man's future are more important that one game.

    me too,he has such great talent and attitude many other qbs would not have even tried,i really wish him the best and he deserves to play for a better more professional coaching staff,the head coach didnt give go in the field when he got hurt,was that guilt?

    Not really. If he had a knee injury he should have been kept out. When I saw that play and how his knee bent...I cringed. I can bet most Americans did. I was sure he tore his ACL.

    Oh thanks. However....You should know I took off my page my medical experience. I'm in surgery almost every day....that injury was not your every day hurt. I'd bet $100 he just tore his MLC and partially tore his ACL. That's a career ender :-/

    Lucky the man could walk after that knee buckle. I hope he doesn't decide to sue the NFL later on. He made the decision too to continue to play. Ya know the latest fad, make it the NFL's fault for your decisions to play a bodily damaging sport.
