Re: Protecting RG3's Great Expectations

Honestly,
Who wants to let the media loose on any rookie QB? The media won't stop unless you set bounds and then will push those to whatever limit you set, and call it limiting the media.

RGIII certainly will handle more pressers as time goes on, but let him get to football business first.

Re: Protecting RG3's Great Expectations

Its interesting because Shanny built up expectations like crazy early on, now that the season is close he seems to be trying to temper those expectations. Like all rookies, I think RGIII will exceed expectations is some areas and fall short in others but I do think Shanny is the right coach to help him manage/cope with those expectations.

Ryan Leaf is somewhere right now applauding you.

Did we really give up 3 first round pics if we got one in return. I keep hearing that but my math is 3-1=2 and from what I have seen he is going to be worth every penny.

Where's our yearly ceremony at the White House dammit?! And now all of a sudden that we have a rookie qb he's talking about "multiyear plans" and "not piling massive expectations onto the shoulders of our rookie qb."

They keep counting this year's sixth pick to make it sound worse.

Lots of talk about how smart he is and how fast he's picking things up. That could make some people think he's going to play like a vet as a rookie. It was just post draft hype but I do think Shanny doesnt want to pile too much onto RGIII.

Not sure I'd call that building up expectations like crazy, but ok

Yes, because we used the pick on RG3. Therefore if you're going to count "getting a pick back", then count using it, so the "math" would be 3-1+1=3. And don't forget the 2nd rounder we gave up last draft as well.

Another way to put it: If we didn't do that trade, and simply picked another guy, we would have given up one 1st rounder for that guy. What did we give up for RG3? Three 1sts and a 2nd. It's no more complicated than that, people!
