Glad I missed that part of the interview... must have been during the commercial break.

What is really amazing to me is the fact that every one of his answers is a story that he has obviously told hundreds of times by now (and I doubt that's even an exaggeration) yet he comes off as if it was the first time he has told it. I absolutely hope his on field play matches, but I think it is without question that the team will rally around him in the games. We finally(!) have a leader on offense, and that's a GREAT thing.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

After watching the Leno interview I truly believe RGIII personifies everything you could want in a pro athlete from the off-field POV.

Things are set for greatness if the team can play up to his level on the field.

I'm really trying hard to to lose my mind with positivity that RGIII creates for the upcoming season.

Leno: "When are you going to get married?"

RGIII "Sometime next year, gotta on the playbook......"

I agree, I've never understood why Leno's even got a show. I prefer the style Graham Norton uses, much more disarming interviewer and very witty.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Robert Griffin III's arm has already earned legendary status at Redskins camp - Yahoo! Sports

Nice article on our guy. It could go into a lot of threads but thought this one deserved a bump

Re: RGIII Named Starter

^^
Two things from the article really catch my eye. The first is comparison to Vick's throwing motion and velocity (aside from lefty vs righty). Vick's arm motion and velocity always amazed me as he's smaller than most pro QB's but is a far stronger passer. Hopefully Griffin's accuracy is superior to Vick's right from the get-go, as accuracy is the most important quality in a pro QB (see Chad Pennington). But like the article mentions that strength and velocity is a huge bonus in our system w/ the roll-outs etc.
The second highlight for me is Griffin's injury, and more importantly how he responded to it i.e. becoming more of a pocket passer. The injury may have been the best thing to happen to Griffin. To be sure his mobility will be a major threat, but his decision to focus on the fundamentals of pure passing will be the difference maker for our guy.

Cheers to all

I believe them... no really.

Makes sense, they liked Weeden's age. A rookie entering his 30s can't fail, right? He has LIFE experience!

Thankfully, the point im about to make is moot because of RGIII.
But, we you could say something similar about us last year.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

I get that teams will always sell the positive, but all they could have said is we believe in Weeden as our starter. No need to diss the other prospects in the process of pumping up your own guy.
