Hopefully he is going the way of Cam Newton: dynamic rookie year followed by an ugly sophomore slump, then followed by year three brilliance.

Re: Do You Unequivocally Believe RG3 Is Our Franchise QB?

What's so concerning about RG3 is he misses the easy routine throws/ reads that back up NFL QB's make in their sleep. He needs some serious coaching up this off season. The trade was a bad one IMO, that's water under the bridge... but I'm on the fence about him being a franchise QB.

Tracee Hamilton in today's Post (Washington Redskins are a tragic comedy on a loop - The Washington Post) says he's 'regressing before our eyes'. In the coaching thread, there are a couple of posters questioning him and saying he should be sat down for the rest of the year and start Cousins.

Personally, I think its a bunch of 'sky is falling' stuff but thought it may warrant some discussion.
He should've been benched last week. Nothing wrong with sitting a guy down but also letting him know he's the guy the remainder of the season.

And with the knee he's just now getting back that ability to threaten defenses with his legs.

But because teams are taking away his first option, his weaknesses are being exposed. He's not regressing, but he hasn't made any progress. He needs a full healthy offseason to work on getting through progressions quickly.
Pretty much sums it up. His footwork is also god awful. The back peddle in the pocket has got to stop.

Re: Do You Unequivocally Believe RG3 Is Our Franchise QB?

Wasn't last year Cam Newtons 2nd year? Cam threw for 3,869 yards, with 19 TD and 12 INTs. He rushed for 741 yards and 8 TDs and his team went 7-9.

Griffin through 10 games has thrown for 2,714 yards, with 14 TD and 10 INTs. He has rushed for 345 yards. Griffin is really on the same pace as Cam, and Cam was never coming back from a major knee injury. Griffin is playing worse than Luck and Wilson right now, but I would argue those teams have a better defense than the Redskins.

There are only a handful of guys I might take over RG3, but many of those guys are old and won't be around 3-4 years from now.

I would definitley take RG3 over Cam and Kaepernick.

No.

Just to be difficult.

Re: Do You Unequivocally Believe RG3 Is Our Franchise QB?

Yes, RGIII is our Franchise QB.

As others have said, he needs to work with a top-notch QB coach. The lack of a top-tier QB coach for RGIII is one more thing that pisses me off about the way Mike Shanahan operates. Dan Snyder will spend the money necessary to win, so why wouldn't MS hire the best possible QB coach for his young Franchise QB? Just add that to the reasons that MS is culpable for the poor season we're suffering through.

No doubt. I also don't question what we gave up for him. If you had a Powerball ticket that had a high probability of making you a millionaire you'd be willing to shell out more for that risk too.

Re: Do You Unequivocally Believe RG3 Is Our Franchise QB?

Yes. This is a dumb question, it's his second year. Is Kaepernick a franchise QB? He had been equally bad for the niners, but his D makes up for that. Is Matt Ryan a franchise QB? This is a question to ask when his rookie contract is up and wants to get paid, right he is what he is, we are married to him know matter who the coach is.

Re: Do You Unequivocally Believe RG3 Is Our Franchise QB?

I know it seems like a dumb thread and an even dumber question but it was prompted, quite frankly, by some of the dumb posts I saw in some other threads that seemed as though people had questions about it.. I'd be interested to hear from some that seemingly weren't sold in other threads (most recent postgame threads from the past few weeks, coaching change thread) on their thoughts.
