I think that's what they were working on, Wednesday they might work on pocket passing.

Re: RG3 impresses on first day of practice with Redskins vets

With a player of his potential playing in a west coast style of offense, Griffin III should do well. The fact that Mike Shanahan saw enough of him in rookie mini camp to name him the starting quarterback was going to happen eventually, but I expected Shanahan to name Griffin III the starter sometime during the preseason. I really thought Grossman would start the season at QB and eventually Griffin III would soon start sort of like what the Giants did with Eli Manning in 2004. But he's the starting quarterback now and it's good that he's learning the playbook quickly and gaining valuable experience in running the plays with the veterans at this early juncture.

I agree, besides we know what Rex can do. It would be redundant having Rex throw passes to players like Anthony Armstrong at this point. If need be, Rex can be thrown in at any moment and you would get the same results: good Rex or interception.

RG3 was the starter from the second his name was called at the draft.

Putting Rex out there again would be a waste of everyone's time.

Could've been alphabetical by last name, if they aren't right next to each other.

Re: RG3 impresses on first day of practice with Redskins vets

Or since London Fletcher is the undisputed leader of the entire team Griffin III's locker being next to his was probably meant to be an influential move for Griffin III to take in Fletcher's leadership and respectability that may rub off on Griffin III and could very well have the most of positive influences on our young starting quarterback.

If it were alphabetical, aren't you ignoring a lot of other players on the roster?

Because Gano, Garcon, Golston, and Gomes are just a few names in between Fletcher and Griffin

Re: RG3 impresses on first day of practice with Redskins vets

Just read the Keim article Matty posted. here are a couple quotes that have me salivating for next year:

Quote:
Not that Rex Grossman threw lollipops, but Griffin is much faster and throws a faster ball. He had one throw Monday to Niles Paul where you could hear it hum as it arrived. Griffin’s traits will give the offense a faster tempo.

"It’s a total difference when he’s out there running on the play-action,” Davis said. “He gets out so fast. He sees the whole field. He can make throws other quarterbacks couldn’t make. He gets out on the play action very fast. Very fast."
Five thoughts: Robert Griffin III | Washington Examiner

Every time I think I can't get any more pumped, I find out I am wrong. ... "you could hear it hum" Sweeeeet!!!!

yup and who doesnt like a good hummer? Finally going into a season with a franchise QB is going to the best feeling in a long, long time. Just think of the young core of weapons on offense coming up together...this is such a new thing for the Skins, if people cant get pumped about what we are building they are just dead.
