Let's not forget that at the most important position we have a rookie that didn't play in a pro system. All rookie QB's struggle. Even some of the great ones...Troy Aikman and John Elway had terrible rookie seasons. I expect RG3 to do the same. Especially early.

Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Mark Sanchez and Joe Flacco beg to differ.. Just because he's a rookie doesn't automatically equal struggles. Sure he will have rookie moments but him playing like a middle tier NFL QB isn't out of the realm of possibility. Just don't expect him to be a top 12 QB right away and you won't be disappointed.

Rookie QBs are much more pro ready than they were back in Elway and Aikman's day. RG3 isn't going to struggle in the same way they did.

Even though Griff is a rookie QB I don't expect him to struggle the way you suggest.
Times have changed and recent success of rookie QB has been more the rule then the exception.
Mike Shanahan has spoken of putting the pieces around a QB to have success.
Obviously he feels the current team had the blocks to support that success.
If Griffin struggles then something is wrong, and I don't neccesarily mean with him.

Alright guys I'm being completely honest here.. Does anyone else find Shanahan is starting to go senile? The guy answering questions at the press conference today was not the Mike Shanahan I know.

Anyways, I like the Briscoe claim.

What does being a sports fan have to do with it? I think the guy is starting to lose it, it's as simple as that.

You actually watch Shanny's pressers? Wow. That takes dedication, especially when you know the answer to every question before he says it.

As far as your question goes, I have no idea if he's senile or not. Does he still answer every question in coach-speak? If so, doubtful. Business as usual.

Or, if every question-answer exchange goes likes this, maybe you are onto something.

Reporter: Mike, what should we expect to see out of RG3 in the preseason?

Shanny: Huh? I told those kids if they didn't stay off my lawn I'm gonna raise cain.

To be fair they post them on the skins site. I'll watch them from time to time when I'm bored at work. Nothing wrong with that. They'll also play them every now and then in the place of the Larry michael show on CSN.

Part of my daily routine at work is watching the latest on the Redskins website.. I live in Canada so I can't just turn on the tv at night to get the latest.

All I'm saying is he isn't the guy I'm used to seeing speak. He looks beat, he's less interested and the clever jokes are gone.

Re: 2012 Training Camp Competitions Open Discussion

So has anyone gone to TC yet? I was at Training camp last year and Shanahan held 11 on 11 he held it at the furthest field away from the fans and we, the fans, couldn't see anything. Has it changed? Is it on the closer field? Can you see a lot of RG3 throwing and running or is that on the opposite field?
