    Teams catch up within a year. Remember the Dolphins and their "wing" formation which caught teams off guard.

    RG3 is very hyped and marketed for good reason. Watch him play and see how often he almost takes some really big hits. Unless he changes his play/style soon, he won't last. He reminds me of Randall Cunningham. Alot of gimmicks but, when the defense catches on, it will be the real test.

    The Skins are gonna rest him vs the Browns thinking it'll be an easy win. Got news for them, the Browns are better than their record shows! Wouldn't be shocked at all to see the Browns beat Wash next week.

    I never said they did. What I said is these gimmick offense don't last.

    We scored 31 points

    I dont think anyone has caught up yet.

    Also, the Redskins played like crap on offense today.
    By caught up I meant that they will continue to pound RGIII if he continues to run the ball. Vick is a shell of himself after the beatings he has taken. Same will happen to RGIII if he continues to run so much.

    He came very close yesterday for going out for they year, that is why.

    It will be retired once RG3 is out of the league.....which won't be too far in the future with all the hits he takes! He's already had a bad concussion and a knee injury and it's only his rookie year!
    The guy is fast, explosive and elusive but he's not built for longevity.

    Pittsburgh Steelers already figured him out and punished him.The guy is good but he is not all that. Paranoid play calling has cost teams against this guy. He makes better decisions than but is not as fast or guns the ball out the pocket as Mike Vick.Bobby Gee 3, Roach With Braids, reptile dysfunction or whatever this ugly bastid is called will only be relevant for 2-4 seasons at most.

    Ever since we scaled back on the read option and started running a more NFL type offense Cam has actually improved. he has 13 Passing TD's and only 2 INT's since week 9 and 4 rushing TD's.

    Since when does 10 dropped passes mean a QB is figured out??
