    RG3 is going to end up being one of those "What-if" stories. A more functional organization and he might have been great, but Shanahan completely ruined him physically and mentally. Leaving him in during the Seahawk's game was inexcusable, then all the weird drama with the coaching staff.

    He's a story of what happens when the whole organization isn't behind the QB supporting him. Ownership, GM, and head coach all need to support the QB. RG3 only had the ownership supporting him.

    I'm actually surprised to hear the relatively positive RG3 viewpoints on this board (everywhere else devolves into blaming him solely for the team's errors....one ESPN top comment even put the onus on black QBs as a whole..)


    I pretty much agree with you guys though. I'm not making any excuses for the guy but what could have been if he was in a capable organization. Hell, I'll settle for a decent O-line...

    RG3 hasn't helped himself either by being tone deaf and too arrogant to see his own short-comings but the Redskins are a trainwreck (not as bad as the Jets) who are making the situation 10x worse. What's funny is that all my Baylor friends knew that the instant the Redskins drafted RG3 he was going to eventually end up sucking.

    Why wouldn't they? Would be relatively low risk high reward at this point. Sound exactly like a belicheck signing

    ^ He'll be beat to shit and out of the league in two years. Plus Belichick is going to take risks on players who are not at QB.

    Damn. At least it wasn't a random non football injury where he gets blamed for playing basketball with his kids or something

    I seem to remember the Detroit Lions having a 4-0 preseason the year they went 0-16...

    Always funny when people put ANY stock in preseason games/records.

    Though AC may have just been kidding.

    The Giants lost all four games in 2007.

    What do you guys think, keep Lamar Miller for the 60th overall pick or Jonathan Stewart for the 132nd pick?

    Quit fantasy football. That cruel, capricious mistress

    But in case you won't - Miller is a steal as a 5-6 rounder for a clear RB1. I say he outperforms that draft position but he won't be lightning in a bottle. He's somewhat of a plodder and the Dolphins o-line is a mess

    It looks like the RG3 Experiment is over. :(

    Anybody think that Kirk Cousins could be the next Tom Brady? Consider the evidence: Multiple college starts for a Big 10 team employing a pro-style offense; slid in the draft due to concerns about physical ability; got chance to start after injury to starter, who was a top draft pick.
