SHANAHAN SAYS ROOKIE QB COULD START SEASON OPENER (http://www.theredzone.org/BlogDescription/tabid/61/EntryId/25214/Shanahan-says-rookie-QB-could-start-season-opener/Default.aspx)

"Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan saidWednesday he will be
open-minded about the possibility that the quarterback the team will draft in
April, either Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck, will be the club’s starter at
the outset of his rookie season according to Mark Maske of the <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/football-insider/post/mike-shanahan-says-rookie-qb-could-start-season-opener/2012/03/28/gIQA3vIHgS_blog.html">Washington
Post</a>.



But that’s not a given, according to Shanahan, who said the
issue of whether the prized rookie starts immediately will depend on the young
quarterback’s progress during the offseason and training camp.

“You put
him in there when you feel like he’s ready to go,” Shanahan said at the NFC
coaches’ breakfast at the annual league meeting.

“You get someone you
feel like can be a franchise quarterback for years to come, that doesn’t happen
very often. .?.?. To have that guy — they’re hard to find,” Shanahan said."

Unless thier rookie QB breaks a leg ... Either Luck or RG3 will be on the field opening weekend.

99.999% chance Luck goes to Indy....</P>


therefore I can't say i'm surprised at all that there's also a 99.999% chance that RG3 will start week 1 for Washington. lol</P>

If Indy pulls a surprise and picks RG3, then the Redskins will pick Luck. The Redskins are pretty much screw-proof unless their draft phone-line goes down and they can't get their pick in under the time limit.... haha

The Redskins are going to have a Week 1 rookie starting QB either way.
