You do know that 30 out of 32 owners also said you guys were guilty too right??? Also that the only two owners that said you weren't were....wait for it...Jerry Jones and Dan Synder. You guys need to really get over that and why even bring it up it has nothing to do with the game on Monday???Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I think the reason most of us Redskins fans are excited is we actually see progress. You can talk about how he's gimmicky, he's going to get hurt, DCs are going to figure him out, etc... but so far, the only mistake he has made that was big was not sliding or getting out of bounds early enough against the Falcons.
You have to also look at the Redskins QB play the past 20 years to see why fans are excited. I personally think he'll be the franchises QB for years to come, and I'm not too worried about his health, he has even said himself he's smartened up and knows his teammates need him to play it safe. Hes also not as small as everyone makes him out to be. Everyone automatically pictures a guy Vicks size with a Redskins helmet, but in reality hes the same exact size as Aaron Rodgers.
I'd be willing to bet that RG3 doesn't have the sophomore slump that Cam has. RG3 has an even-keeled demeanor and hasn't let any of the highs or lows go to his head. Cam has all the physical tools he needs, its just up top where he's missing out.
I'd also like to remind you guys, that Steve Young's Offensive Coordinator was Mike Shanahan. Elway could also be called a "mobile" QB. Shanahan knows how to work with QBs that are accurate on the run. I also don't think just because someone is outside of the pocket they're more likley to be hurt. With a weak Offensive Line, you can get popped just as hard, if not harder when you're a sitting duck in the pocket.
I don't know of any Redskins fans anointing RG3 as the greatest QB in the game right now, but I think he's got a shot to be a serious argument for it if he keeps it up in the next few years. Only Mike Wilbon seems to think so, but even his MVP comment is based on if a single team lost a single player, how much would it affect them.
Either way, I hope for a good game with no injuries, we've both got enough of those for now and It'll be interesting to see what difference having our #1 Receiver back is going to do.
Do you have any evidence for this? He's more accurate, a stand-up guy, and helps his teammates. He's also a Pass first guy, who scambles or bootlegs when needed. Vick was always running after his first read was covered in his early days. I'm sure you want to believe that, but I just don't buy it.
P.S. - Yes, we all hate Mara. You'd hate Snyder with a passion if it was the other way around, especially in an uncapped year where there were no rules against it, and a "gentlemen's agreement" (aka Collusion). Of course the other owners approve of getting an extra 1mil + to spend at the expense of 2 other teams (who were coincidentally in the same Division as Mara's team). Just keep in the back of your heads, we're playing you with 18mil less, so what happens when we can actually get some secondary depth?
