I'm going to go out on a limb and say we're keeping 3 QBs on the active roster. 2 will dress on Sundays. I also say Crompton ends up back on the practice squad.

Carr and Harrington were the other first rounders when Pat was selected

They're not doing this to put Crompton as a first-teamer, they're doing it to give him 20% of the reps and setting up an equal 50/50 competition between Grossman and Cousins with the same personnel.

It wouldn't be a fair competition to give one of them 1st-team and the other 2nd-teamers to work with.

Crompton won't make the team...unless Rex implodes even more or gets some kind of jealous temper tantrum and runs himself out of town because he's being more of a distraction than mentor to the rookies.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Should also be noted that it's 1st team offense vs. 2nd team defense, and 2nd team offense vs. 1st team defense

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Crompton is the clear starter. They're just giving Griffin reps so that his feelings don't get hurt. Crompton is such a stud that he needs no reps.

Pretty sure Cam Newton was named an early starter.

I know you love the Crompton but you need to give a little more respect to Rex Grossman. Remember, that is the guy who beat out John friggin Beck for a starting job last season. He's shown an ability to win when faced with an underdog role.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Shanny might say that he doesn't pay attention to the press & public reaction, and maybe he doesen't, but naming RGIII the starter so early seems in part designed to avoid any talk of qb controversy.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

You don't give up what the Skins did for him and not plug him in as the starter on day 1.

Exactly. RG3 starts day one, give him most of the reps and build the offense around him. So far, the Shanahan's are doing all the right things w/ RG3.

He wasn't officially named starter until August actually. He was struggling in camp but lit up the defenses when the regular season started.

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Shanahan also said they will adjust the offense to suit RG3, and they're not going to toss the entire playbook at him, I know some were concerned about those things.

I don't know the last time, but Peyton Manning started all 16 games his rookie season so I assume there was some amount of hoopla there. I would say that worked out.

Eli didn't start his first game, neither did Roethlisberger

Re: RGIII Named Starter

Mike Shannahan is putting his whole future on RGIII by naming him the starter. Once the draft trade went down the way it did in March he knew this was the way it was going to be. Either they both succeed together or Mike will be gone for failing to win with another QB. Somehow I think this time it will work.
