NFL Says Redskins QB Robert Griffin's Helmet Was Working Properly Vs Bucs
Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III claimed, after a wild comeback win in Tampa last week, that he lost communication during the game-winning drive and could not hear the plays being called in from the sidelines. The Redskins did not ask the league to formally investigate the matter, and made no claims against the Buccaneers. According to a league source, Griffin's frequencies were working normally.
The NFL tries to monitor this vigilantly, both on the sidelines during games and then when issues come up afterward, and the sideline personnel who oversee the frequencies could in fact hear the plays being called in to Griffin during the game and on that final drive, according to the source. Griffin may have been having difficulty hearing the calls due to a low battery or some deficiency within the helmet, but the league has eliminated the possibility that anyone was trying to cut the ability to communicate between coach and player.

So the NFL says it was working properly, however, there could be a low battery or deficiency within the helmet that would have interfered with his hearing the plays?
