Although he’s received some backlash for speaking his mind too often, he’s decided to be who he is in front of the camera.
“I sat down and talked to a few people to make a decision: ‘Do I stop being who I am, stop being honest with you guys and give you guys ammunition to turn against this team, or do I just go into a shell and Bill Belichick it all week?'” Griffin said. “I’m just going to continue to be who I am. And if something like that does happen, you make the statement to make sure everybody gets its clear. But I don’t think I can change who I am just because people are going to take my words and put them against me.”
Griffin, who has expressed interest in playing in the preseason, has been told by his head coach Mike Shanahan he won’t be playing at least until the regular season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 9. The public disagreement was finally put to rest when Griffin called his own press conference to say there is no rift between the two.
We’re always looking forward to hearing Griffin’s opinion as he has a unique perspective. And according to his Twitter account, his followers don’t mind either.
