It's fine. Not going to make a big deal out of it.

He's going to be deadly with all the roll-outs and boots.

That's great that he can roll out left and right, but he needs to work on working out of the pocket. There will tough games where he will have to operate out of the pocket, he just can't roll out the whole game or someone will take him out.

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

Griffin likes playing the role of pocket passer and by all accounts he's done very well at it. I don't really doubt Griffin's ability, intelligence and/or work ethic at this point. Hopefully is maturity is on par w/ his other qualities because a rookie season, especially in DC, can be downright overwhelming.

That's why I'm looking for analysis of the oline's performance through the off-season. A good to great oline should make Griffin's rookie campaign much easier.

Let's just hope he doesn't come in here and read some of the suicidal comments after a loss :-)

It's OTA's. Beck and Grossman looked good in OTA's, and even in the pre season. None of it matters until the pads are on. But good to see RG3 is picking up the playbook quickly.

our run game is going to be based off the rollouts. Point being line up in a set formation that you can run or rollout a majority of snaps. If the D has to guard the whole field on that both running and passing lanes should be a bit larger.

The pocket passing isn't going to be a huge staple of our game, but I am sure he will get plenty of practice at it.

That's what Shannahan means by doing things never done before by other QB's. He moves so fast after the snap and I'm not talking about runing speed but play action etc. He rolls out so fast the defense is going to have to commit safeties to hold contain and protect themsleves from 50 yard runs. He is accurate while throwing on the run, "Santana Moss touchdown!!!".

I agree with you but I can also see some plays getting blown up. All they would need to do is rush a CB on the side they think he will roll out to and have the Safety roll to the side and cover the WR being released by the rushing CB.

I do believe though some of those plays RG1 did get were either because of his mobility/speed and arm strength so I'm excited too to see how RG3 with his speed is able to seperate from defenders and his ability to get the long ball long.

That's where the stretch plays can kill oposing defenses, it creates a paradox for them. Defenses get caught cheating because the D is worried about protecting the edge, meanwhile Helu and Royster put on a clinic.
