Griffin spoke to The Washington Post and again illustrated that he wasn't happy with the team's decision to sit him in Ohio:
There’s no strained relationship. What they’re going to tell me is they did the best thing for me. But as a player, I’m not going to say sitting out a game is the best thing for me. That’s just not how you operate or how you think.
Personally, I'd like to see him give Kirk Cousins some more credit for the way he stepped in and performed. Despite the win looking comfortable in the end, there were still some doubters regarding Cousins' ability to get the job done.
He deserves all the praise he has received for that game and the Ravens game. That's just me, though.
Despite this, if Griffin is cleared to play, there should be no debate over who should start. It's Griffin's team, and his desperation to play hurt only reinforces that.
A week on the sideline is enough, and he needs to lead the team to the playoffs.
If he starts on Sunday, there are a few things to watch out for, some of which could affect the team as they make a run at the postseason.
