Did RG3 pull the strings that got Mike Shanahan fired? Is the always smiling, Subway restaurant pushing QB really an arrogant on and off the field headache?

According to a CBS Sports report on Jan. 7, the Washington Post's reporter Sally Jenkins says their is a side many fans don't see of Griffin who seeming has gone from a "overachiever as a rookie to spoiled brat in his second season."

"According to insiders, Griffin's public campaign to have the offense altered for him was just the tip of his egotism in his second year," Jenkins wrote. "Behind closed doors, Griffin had fierce finger-pointing tensions with his wide receivers, and he bragged to teammates that he could procure favors from the owner and influence the franchise's direction."

Now, NFL fans and sports fans in general know that sports stars have to be tough or they wouldn't be in the game.

However their is a difference between being tough and bragging about how you have more influence than the coaching staff on who stay and goes.

Jenkins did go on to say that "not every story about [Griffin's] ego is true, and he is so young that he genuinely may not understand how he was perceived, especially in the flash of stardom," however the old saying "where there's smoke, there's fire" may be a bit true here.
