It's just that the past 20 years of Redskin football have taught me not to be too optimistic. I'm hoping whatever setbacks we have this year, we make progress forward.
I'm trying to stay level-headed but I'll supply some koolaid here: The last 20 years we have not had a QB like Gryphon. It might be time for fans to stop being jaded and expect the worst, and instead optimistically embrace a bright new era.

RG3 will show flashes of greatness. But expect him to struggle at the next level as a rookie. I expect him to play great at times and I expect him to make mistakes at times. Has there ever been a rookie QB to lead his NFL team to a strong post season push in recent memory? Yes, there was. Big Ben took the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship game as a rookie. He won a Super Bowl ring the next year so it can be done.

RG3 is not playing defenses like Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska anymore. He's going against professional NFL standard defenses now.

Griffin is special, not because of his athletic abilities. He's daring and cerebral. It should make him successful.

Re: Expectations for Griff and the 2012 Offense

I like him too. I've been a Redskins fan like you no doubt since i was in diapers, and i've learned to temper my expectations constantly. So i handicap expectations so that i can communicate with those that dont understand what this team means to me and my family.

What would a successful RG3 season be to you?

So excited for tonight's game even though I won't be able to watch it.

So the title says it all what would you say is a successful season for RG3? Playoffs, nfc east title, Superbowl, stats, etc.. How ever you would define it.

I think if he can throw over 20 TDs and keep the ints to about the same level or lower plus have a one or two fourth quarter comebacks by then he will prove he is capable of becoming an elite QB and thus it will be successful season for him, if not the redskins themselves as well.

Superbowl victory and he crosses over to the NBA to lead the Wizards to the championship game. All else is a failure of a season.

I just want to see him get through healthy, close the season out with a winning record, and a spike upwards in his stats. Anything more than that is extra credit for me.

Re: What would a successful RG3 season be to you?

I would say at least 2,800 passing yards, 15-20 TD's would be respectable. Interceptions are going to be high, but hopefully he has no more than 20. 20 TD's and 20 INT's are rex-grossman like numbers, but with RG3 we could be more patient because of all his upside.

I'm so excited!! HTTR!!!

  1. Stays healthy
  2. Minimizes mistakes (INTs and fumbles)
  3. Improve every week
  4. Win more games than last year

He stays healthy and does better than Grossman.

That last part shouldn't be too hard.

I feel as if we just had this conversation.

http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...2-offense.html (Expectations for Griff and the 2012 Offense)

I'll make my prediction at end of pre-season.
