ASHBURN, Va. Teez Tabor Lions Jersey . — Robert Griffin III parsed the appropriate uses of “me” and “I” when it comes to owning up to a mistake and privately explained his words to teammates Santana Moss and coaches Wednesday. It was the latest bit of damage control in a disappointing season for the under-the-microscope quarterback. Griffin was dealing with the backlash from the comments he made after the Washington Redskins 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, when his unwise third-and-1 heave was intercepted in the end zone in the final minute to end his teams last chance to tie the game. “I think at the end of the day, I just have to know in that situation after a tough loss to a divisional opponent I cant give anybody any opportunity to read into my words and misinterpret anything,” Griffin said. “Some of the things I said, I was trying to give a good compliment to Philly. I wasnt trying to take any shots at anybody and it turned out that way. “Youre asking me today, if I could take any of that back, yeah, I would take it back, because in the heat of that moment, youre frustrated. Youre trying to figure out why things didnt work. Im trying to give you guys honest answers and it hurt us in that sense. Thats on me.” Griffins specific words Sunday were hardly earth-shattering, but they were just enough to stoke a prevalent notion that he doesnt always take his fair share of blame and that his relationship with the coaching staff isnt the greatest. Regarding the interception, he said Sunday: “We had a certain concept we were running, and nobody got open so I was backing up, and in the situation where you get a sack there, it ends the game. I was trying to throw the ball to the back of the end zone. It didnt get to where I wanted it to go.” Regarding the Eagles in general, he said after the game: “They did a good job of scheming us up. Obviously, we were able to run the ball effectively, but in the passing game, they kind of had us. They kind of knew what was coming before it was coming and, like I said, that is disheartening.” That was enough for Moss, a well-respected veteran, to speak up. Moss told 106.7 The Fan on Tuesday that: “Regardless of the outcome, good or bad, you have to at some point, stand up and say me or I.” Moss met with Griffin on Wednesday and then attempted to put a new spin on his comments Wednesday, saying they were meant as a message to all leaders that its best to take responsibility no matter whos at fault. “It was nothing that I said should make you believe that were not cool,” Moss said. Griffin said he and Moss were “on the same page.” Griffin also seemed perplexed by the whole “me”/”I” uproar. “You guys asked me about the last play of the game. I said I tried to throw the ball away and it didnt work,” Griffin said. “I dont know who else is to blame for that. I tried to throw the ball away and it didnt work. … Maybe I can say I, me a whole lot more, but other people can take that the wrong way, too.” Griffin also met with coach Mike Shanahan and offensive co-ordinator Kyle Shanahan, explaining that “scheming us up” wasnt a dig at them. Asked to explain his relationship with the two, he said: “Its three guys that want to win football games.” “We want to win and thats the bottom line,” Griffin said. “Whenever youre not winning, it creates a lot of madness, especially in where were at right now with the Washington Redskins. The only way to stop the madness is for us to win and youve got three guys — Coach, Kyle, myself — we all want to win and thats a good recipe.” Taking the middle ground was Mike Shanahan, who is trying to keep a 3-7 team focused for a Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers. “Youve got a tough loss and a lot of emotions after a game and all of a sudden, hey, you look back and say, Maybe I wish I would have said it a different way, but this is what I meant,” Shanahan said. “I know Robert meant nothing by it. I know Santana meant nothing by it. Both guys expressed their opinion.” Jarrad Davis Jersey .

Bouchard got the rivalry going two years ago when she won the junior Wimbledon title over Svitolina.CHICAGO — The Cubs didnt want to see a championship celebration at Wrigley Field — not if the other team would have been whooping it up. A late rally prevented that. Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking single in a three-run eighth inning, and the Cubs beat Atlanta 3-1 Saturday to keep the Braves on the brink of the NL East title. Atlantas magic number remained at one to clinch its first division title since 2005. Second-place Washington was rained out against Miami later Saturday. Either way, the Cubs didnt have to watch a celebration. “One day, hopefully, thatll be us and we can move forward from that,” Travis Wood said. The Cubs are a long way from contention, of course. They have 90 losses and are last in the NL Central, with another brutal season coming to a finish. Not having to witness the Braves clinching was just one small victory. “It was nice not to have to see (a celebration) in person,” manager Dale Sveum said. Starlin Casto singled off Kris Medlen with one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Donnie Murphy singled against Scott Downs (2-1) and Anthony Rizzo hit a tying double down the left-field line. Navarro singled in the go-ahead run against David Carpenter, and Nate Schierholtz added a sacrifice fly. “They just made some good swings,” Laird said. “Rizzo went out and got that ball, hit it down the line. Dioner hit that slider down and in. Youve got to tip your cap to them.” Medlen held Chicago to one run and six hits in 7 1-3 innings after going 4-0 with an 0.98 ERA in his previous four starts. “Its tough, but Im a former bullpen guy, and I know how tough that job is,” Medlen said. “The dudes do their best. Theyve carried us the entire year, so these things happen and nobody in this clubhouse is panicking at all or anything. Credit their pitcher with keeping the game close, too. (Travis) Woods having a great year. I felt it all game. Michael Roberts Lions Jersey. I felt like it was in my hands, and the game was over. I had all the confidence in the world in myself and I just tried making pitches.” Carlos Villanueva (7-8) relieved Wood with two on and no outs in the eighth after Justin Upton doubled and Freddie Freeman walked. Villanueva induced a double-play grounder by Chris Johnson and a flyout by Evan Gattis. Pedro Strop struck out the side in the ninth for his first save in four chances. Atlanta went ahead in the fourth when Freeman walked and scored on Gattis single. But B.J. Upton also struck out looking with the bases loaded to end the rally. Wood settled down after that, allowing one run, five hits and four walks in seven innings with seven strikeouts. “I had pretty command of most my pitches, being able to locate my fastball and getting the cutter on their hands and get some early swings and some quick outs,” Wood said. “Just that last inning kind of got away from me quick. I really wanted to go out there and finish it strong and maybe overtried a little bit and left a pitch over that Upton could hit and Freeman battled me.” NOTES: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said OF Jason Heyward “was feeling great,” a day after Heyward returned from the disabled list. Heyward was not in the lineup on Saturday after going 0 for 2 with a walk in his first appearance since breaking his jaw on Aug. 21 because of a broken jaw. … The Cubs unveiled a logo to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field in 2014. It shows the ballparks familiar marquee and facade with “100 years 1914-2014.” The logo, which will be featured as a patch on the teams home uniform next season, was submitted by Brandon Ort of New Bremen, Ohio, as part of a fan contest before the season. … RHP Julio Teheran (12-8, 3.14 ERA) starts Sunday for Atlanta, with RHP Edwin Jackson (8-16, 4.75) pitching for Chicago.
