Broadcasters, bloggers and even king himself glommed on to that part of a quote, out of context, and ran with it.

Similar things happened to rg3 with all of the mess this season. People latched onto the negative narrative regardless of who it came from or if it was even valid.

well said.

Matty I agree with you but he should also not have had any starts ,at least for a while .

For comparison purposes: Payton Manning's rookie numbers are as follows:

Comp. Pct. 56.7
Yards: 3,739
Yards/Game: 233.7
TDs: 26
INTs: 28
Rating: 71.2

So higher TDs, but a lot more picks too and a lower QB rating (by far) than either RGIII season.

I think folks need to give RGIII a break and see what he can do with a larger body of work (and good health).

People around here are addicted to stats. How many games were there where RG3 was the QB and it was a struggle to get first downs? Green Bay, both Philly games, Denver, KC, San Fran, then he'd get some junk stats when the game was out of hand...he had a down year, he held the ball, he was inaccurate, he looked at one wr and pulled the ball down.... he's young and learning... it happens. The 2013 drama filled year is over. Time for RG3 to work on his craft, get better and move on.

IMO that is what RGIII needs to work on most. Too often he was on the move and took his eyes away from downfield, thus thwarting any opportunity for a big pass play.

He can do it. I'll bet we see a different RGIII in Sept. '14.

Yeah well CK stares down WRs all.day and Is known as the 1 read QB but winning as a team cures all of that. Griffin needs to work on a lot but so does RW, CK and luck

Yeah, Kaep is even worse than RGIII at the look-at-one-guy-and-take-off mode. Kaep would drive me crazy if we had him.

Jaws must have been drunk for saying he was going to be one of the greatest , idk what he saw but as far as a pure passer there just is no way. He's not the passer RG or RW are that's for sure

Well said! All these young qb's stare first option, however, first option is usually an open wr. They run slants and rub routes that weren't in the playbook for RG, the offense in 2012 and 13 was an early 90's offense w/heavy read option. SF runs the same sets but they run power, have a top five defense, better receivers, and a functioning Specials Team.

RG3 needs to fix his footwork too, it was pretty terrible last year.

Captain Fear, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mascot, is rumored to be joining Bruce Allen's Washington Redskins staff in a similar capacity.

This move should complete the Redskins staff because, with the addition of Captain Fear, there will no longer be anyone who has ever worked for the Bucs who is not already working at Redskins Park.

When 80% of the time your offense only ran 2 man routes. It was kinda hard not to stare at one. Especially when the other guy is Alderick Robinson or Hankerson

Wilson is not a great passer. Look at his stats and remember that he has an offensive line and defense too.

Half his games are in the 40-50% completion rate range and the others are around 70%. He's not reliable and he's never asked to throw for more than 200 yards a game.
