Donovan McNabb: Robert Griffin III is being used as a "scapegoat"

Former Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb believes that Robert Griffin III is being used as a "scapegoat" by the club for their on-the-field problems.

Former Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb believes that Robert Griffin III is being used as a "scapegoat" for the club's current problems.

Mike Shanahan's side fell to 3-8 in their season after losing to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday as Griffin's offense failed to score a touchdown.

"There's a scapegoat in every situation, and who's the scapegoat? Robert Griffin," McNabb told Fox Sports.

"This is something that I've seen, obviously, when I was in Washington and I've been seeing it since I left, at what point as a head coach will you say, 'I need to get the guys prepared.

"It's my fault. We didn't play well, I'll make sure that we're ready tomorrow. This is something that's been a problem, even since when I was there, when things go wrong."

The Redskins face the New York Giants on Sunday.
