I have no doubt that the article quoted him. The thing is if RG3 said that a day ago it would all over espn and other sports outlets. So I highly doubt if that quote was recent.

Honestly, it would be the smartest thing any NFL prospect has ever done. Make sure your future is taken care of. Finish school, compete in the Olympics (which is a huge honor) and then see what the NFL has to offer. Sure, he can make big money in the NFL, but he can also get seriously hurt right away (not that I'd ever wish that on anybody) and never make it in the NFL. That makes me respect RG III that much more.

That wouldn't be smart at all. Right now, his stock is high. If he goes back he risk injury and stock falling. I've been watching Baylor all season and that offensive line did a very poor job protecting RG3. He was sacked 23 times and if it wasn't for his mobility he would have been sacked and hit a hell of a lot more. The smartest thing he can do is come out. He can finish his law degree in the spring which is what he planned to do anyway.

Hey, you think in terms of strictly football and money, I think in terms of life. The NFL doesn't guarantee you a thing. Sure, there are no guarantees in life either, but having that degree first and having a game plan set in place for the long term is always much wiser than putting all of your eggs into one basket in terms of a sport. He stays in school, gets his degree, he's set for the long term. He can play in the NFL knowing he can have fun for a few years, retire, and go straight into law. Don't be blinded by the $$$ signs. A lot of that money is not guaranteed.

I'm thinking in terms of what's a good moves and bad ones. RG3 is a top ten pick and will have a big pay day coming into the league. He's going to get at least 10 million guaranteed. He can always go to law school. But, if he gets injured, he can kiss his nfl career goodbye. To stay would be a bad move. He would be risking way to much.

You can always finish up school later on. I say take your shot at the NFL while you can.

Some seem to think RGIII really isn't concerned about the NFL right now..

Agreed. I think it's great that he plans to be a lawyer or sports agent, but in my opinion, passing up on a big pay day would be foolish when you can go to school whenever you want. With the kind of money he'll be making, he'll be in a position to set himself up for life. Sure he could do well as a lawyer, but why not do both?


Now the Olympic thing on the other hand, I can understand that and have no issue with him deciding to compete in the Olympics.

There are reports that Kalil is going pro. Not sure if it has been stated here yet, but that would be a great sign that we will be in position to get a great QB. I would hope that Barkley would be going pro with him.

With what Matty pays you, don't lie to us like that.

That would make a lot of sense for the Redskins, considering that Matt Schaub already knows Kyle's offense, so no learning curve - MS could be plugged in while the 'skins continue to build the team around him.

The Redskins could still draft a QB in 2013 or 2014, and give him time to hold a clip board like Aaron Rodgers. I could definitely live with this scenario.
Ugh...another quick fix to file away with the rest of the past 30 years. When do we get our own franchise QB instead of always settling for someone elses leftovers?

Because it's when you are convinced that a franchise quarterback can only come from the draft is when a team like New Orleans builds a super bowl roster with an elite quarterback off a risky free agent pickup.

We can still get our franchise qb out of the draft.
