In the pros he will be more of a Brees/Rodgers type meaning using his legs to extend plays vs. a tuck and run QB.
I don't see Drew Brees' style when I watch RGIII play but, to me, Russell Wilson is practically a clone of Brees' playing style.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

All you RGIII Haters out on this board are hilarious. You act like every play he is going run the ball. He will be coached up, one of the great things about him as a prospect IMO is that he is highly intelligent and from a military family (coachable). Shanny & son will teach him how to move in the pocket, buy time. My hope is that he becomes a something like a 2010-11 Vick or a faster version of a Steve Young . Runs when needed but focused on passing. His throwing motion is better then both Cam and Tebow comming out.

Lol, English be hard.

As for Sam Bradford's 'digression', he was besieged by injuries, was in an offense ill suited to his strengths and has no weapons until Brandon Lloyd came about via trade.

Casserly had an interesting scenario for Manning.. Manning to the Cards, Kolb gets cut. How would that affect the QB field this offseason and where does he slot in general (not Redskin specific)? I think he goes to the top of the list above Flynn and Hoyer, slightly ahead of Orton in terms of veteran QB.

I think there's a lot of 'lumping' that goes on with RGIII, putting him in the same sentence as Vick, Young, Newton, McNabb, Culpepper... see where I'm going? He is going to make his hay in the NFL with his head and his arm, not with his legs. Those are a bonus but his passing is what is making him a consideration for a top 3 pick.

I'd take RGIII in a heart beat, I just don't really want the Skins to throw next years first and probably this yrs 2nd rounder just to swap spots.

So I've figured he will be gone by the time the Skins can pick. By the way what makes everyone think the team is interested in or even looking at RGIII. Maybe MS is looking at some other QB? Yet you will be all upset if he takes someone "he's" interested in.

IDK, I really didn't think too much of Kolb and his bad year with the Cards didnt help him. I think he's just going to be a glorified backup maybe another Grossman or close to it. I'd pass on him and take either Flynn or the backup for N.E. then go for a QB in the draft for development and future.

There's a reason I said in general, not Redskins specific.. I personally don't care for him, thought he sucked in Philly but his availability on the market may impact decisions that other teams make and affect us also.

Report: Colts Owner Will Never Trade Peyton Manning

Irsay doesn’t plan on ever trading Manning. Instead his decision to either keep or release him will depend on Manning’s health in March and it’s a decision they’ll make together.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Its the off season so that means I usually go into the hibernation til the draft and then go back into hibernation till pre-season. But I'm going to try to stick around this year.

I'm a frequent of the bleacher report, mostly for their list of cool things, but I came across this article. Just wondering how you all felt about it.

Bleacher Report is pretty much like the Onion in my opinion.

That said, I'd be willing to move Helu in pursuit of a high caliber QB. (via Draft)

^^^^^This is one of the most cogent and analytical postings of the year!

The Redskins have not had a competent QB - - let alone a better than average one - - for about a decade now. RG3 may indeed turn out to be a bust when all is said and done but the odds are that he will be no worse than any of the QBs that the Redskins have trotted out on the field for the last ten years.
