PHOTO: Benched Robert Griffin III is on Redskins Week 16 ticket

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan obviously didn't consult with the team's ticket office before deciding to bench Robert Griffin III this week. Actually, it doesn't seem like he really consulted with anyone, his own son, who happens to be the team's offensive coordinator was against the move.

Anyway, even though no one's showing up for Washington's games, the team is still going to hold its final home game of the season on Dec. 22. As if an empty stadium isn't awkward enough, the Redskins will be taking the awkwardness up a notch because RG3 is on the ticket for the final home game.

Will the ticket be a collector's item? Probably not, but Redskins fans may want to call their Buccaneers fan friends just to be sure. The same thing happened to Tampa Bay in Week 4 when Josh Freeman was on the Buccaneers tickets.
