    But that impromptu singalong was not received well by a few commenters.

    "This is why you will be cut after next year in Washington," @cperezrn said. "Why you weren't even mentioned as the future. You are a 'QB'. Act like one."

    Griffin responded.

    "If giving back to the community and training for football at the same time is frowned upon.....then what would you say I do Sir?" he said. "Not give back or Train? Honest Question." And then, "Oh wait...and should I not enjoy a classic song with others who Love MJ? I'm just asking for your wisdom here."

    Griffin's social-media presence has been used against him in arguments that he cares more about his personal brand than leading the Redskins to victories, which a self-professed military man pointed out by mentioning the letter sent to season-ticket holders last week that didn't include Griffin's name.

    "Military families have class, dignity & loyalty," said Griffin, the product of a military family. "I will maintain mine. You have not shown any of those. I will keep it that way and let you go right off my page God Bless"
