Jay Gruden disputes the notion he's treated Kirk Cousins differently than he did in the past with Robert Griffin III.

Gruden was heavily critical of Griffin in a memorable November 2014 press conference.

Cousins has struggled to begin the 2016 season.

“There was the one issue; that was it,” Gruden told Albert Breer of his criticism of Griffin, referring to the press conference in which he said Griffin’s performance against Tampa Bay was “not even close to good enough” to what the team expected. “Some people acted like I constantly trashed him. I don’t think I’m treating anyone differently. I learned a lot from that one press conference, and I took responsibility for it. Should’ve kept it in-house. But I’m never trying to put a lot of blame on one person. If things aren’t right, it’s usually because of more than that. And right now, we have a lot to clean up.”
