I think Shanny and co. have gone about things the right way so far, from limiting his media time to crafting the offense to fit his skill set.

I agree completely. I think they have done everything in their power to minimize distractions and make him comfortable as he transitions out of the Baylor system and into the Shanahan system.

Definitely, even as far as limiting his exposure to the media. That can have a huge effect on a rookie. All the badgering and questions can either make his head big, or his eyes. Neither are something that we need right now.

He's a Rookie IMO the FO needed to sheild him like this.

Absolutely. Even though he's probably already one of the more level-headed players, it's still unexplored territory. Too much of ANYTHING is bad

In the years I've been a fan, I don't think we've ever seen a rookie carry as much weight on his shoulders as RG3 has. What they are doing right now is smart, and I agree with it, because he's got a hell of a lot of hype to live up to. This might end up being Mike Shanny's career defining moment, even moreso than his two SB wins.

RG3 already has enough pressure on him. Limiting his press time will help somewhat in removing some of that pressure.

RGIII seems from all evidence to revel in the media so far.

I'm sure that will change and be a real test of his character should he have a few-game slide at some point but I think he's a solid kid and up to the task.

He's the real deal.

It's a little late now. Would have been a little late as far back as the draft.

I love talking to you guys, Griffin said. Its great every single time, but thats Coach Mikes decision. He wants me to talk to you guys once a week, so Im talking to you guys once a week. The biggest thing is that Im the quarterback and Im the face of the team, the face of the franchise. I think we all understand that. The guys understand that if Im getting all the attention, were doing extremely well on the field.

Please don't start to get cocky, RGIII. You aren't the face of the franchise yet, though we hope you will be.

sorry, but after trading 3 firsts and a second, and literally handicapping us in the draft for the next TWO years, I think its safe to say that he will be the face of the franchise for at LEAST the next 3 years. I say three years in case he is horrible, but hopefully for 23 years if he is awesome.

I agree. Wait, I thought Shanny was a egotistical maniac that forced QBs into his system? /end sarcasm Happy we have this young man on our team and look forward to watching him grow as a player.

Loved that interview with Cooley. I really hope he rebounds this year.

I don't know if shielding him from the media makes a difference unless Griffin said something perceived as controversial that whoops up the media and becomes a distraction.

...but seriously, who likes dealing w/ the media anyway lol? I'd find every excuse in the book to limit being hounded.
