(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky) ORG XMIT: NYOTK236(Photo: Patrick Semansky, AP)It was open season on Robert Griffin III, Jay Gruden and the Washington Redskins during Sunday morning's NFL pregame shows.There are rumors swirling all over Washington about the young quarterback's future: RG3 could be benched as early as Sunday against the 49ers, the team could pursue a trade, he could be released outright heck, he could be President Obama's next Supreme Court appointment. Everything is on the table. And that led to some hard hitting from some of the league's most respected voices, particularly on Jay Gruden's harsh criticism of his QB.Jimmy Johnson (Fox): "How many coaches have you ever seen in a press conference call out their quarterback and point out his mistakes in a press conference?Tony Gonzalez (CBS): "I have definitely never seen a coach come out after a player like that."Though neither has been clearly been paying enough attention to Notre Dame football this season, their points are salient. Jay Gruden's biggest mistake this year besides almost every on field decision is his honesty. It's refreshing in a day and age in which players and coaches play things closer to the vest than someone at the final table of a poker tournament. But that candor has drawbacks, like this. Everyone loves refreshing when you're winning. No one appreciates it when you're losing.Bart Scott (CBS): "When you don't pick right on your quarterback, it sets your franchise back. This guy is 4 14 in his last 18 games. He doesn't get it."LANDOVER, MD NOVEMBER 16: Quarterback Robert Griffin III 10 of the Washington Redskins of the Washington Redskins looks on in the second half of a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at FedExField on November 16, 2014 in Landover, Maryland.

He won rookie of the year in 2012, over Andrew Luck, no less. (That wholesale jerseys decision isn't going to stand well with the test of time.) He led Washington to the playoffs that year and had a 14 0 lead over the Seattle Seahawks before tearing up his knee. He's not a bust, he's injured. (And he's not close to being a bust yet anyway.)RG3 was the right quarterback for the Washington Redskins in 2012, before he blew out his legs twice. He's not the right quarterback for the Washington Redskins now.Jay Gruden may be the right coach for an NFL team one day. But he's certainly not the right coach for the 2014 Washington Redskins.
