RG3 is going to have a media circus...if a tiny market like Charlotte can create a giant media storm around Cam Newton, just wait until the nation's capital has a QB just as talented, if not more talented. DC has been starving for a QB like Griffin.



I hope he adjusts to the attention quickly, because even with winning the Heisman Trophy, he hasn't seen anything yet,


You sure Charlotte is "tiny?"

Tebow will bring his mania anywhere he goes. I think we'll have our hands full as it is with RG3 mania. Except our guy can throw!

It is compared to DC. And especially Atlanta, as we are one of the Big 3 for corporate headquarters (New York, Dallas, ATL) WHAT UP?!!?!

See people think the Cowboys/Redskins rivalry is about football and that it started from a song. No sir, it's about corporations getting riled up about big government and vice versa.

Tiny? Charlotte is the 17th largest city in the US.

Charlotte is bigger than DC.
Considering that Charlotte's land area is 4x larger than DC (242 sq mi vs 61 sq mi) its no surprise that they have more people.

The Peyton Manning visiting tour apparently is headed to Tennessee according to Michael Lombardi (through Twitter).

Everything is bigger than DC. The real question is how do the surrounding areas stack up for the respective cities? When you throw in Montgomery County-Maryland, Prince George’s County-Maryland, Fairfax County-Virginia, Arlington County-Virginia, and Loudoun County-Virginia.

Montgomery and PG County combined have a greater population then Charlotte as does Fairfax County alone. It's not the city itself, it's the surrounding area.

Granted no one should have said Charlotte is small, but by the same token it's not bigger then DC as a whole.

Lol, if he signs there, it means that he's still gonna traumatize Jacksonville and Houston...and he gets to face Luck for the rest of his time there.

For regional populations the DC area ranks 7th. Charlotte area is down the list at 33. Its not even close.

Charlotte is bigger than DC.


Market size. Media and pro sports market.

If it were a bigger sports market, we'd still have the Charlotte Hornets. No one (nationally) cared about the Panthers until Cam Newton arrived.


There's no way anyone can claim that DC isn't considered one of the busiest media towns in the nation, up there with NYC and LA.

Charlotte is small potatoes.



The QB of the Redskins is always a big headline-grabber, even with bad and mediocre QBs. Look how much attention McNabb drew from the national media when he came to town. It's going be that times infinity when RG3 suits up.

This is getting interesting. So much for him making a decision by Tuesday.
