I'm thinking you could really take advantage of Clowney on some Read Option in Week 1. I don't know why I feel that way but I do. RG3 better learn how to slide this week. Can he skip a day of practice with the Redskins and go practice with the Nationals? At least pick up some winning attitude?

Nope. It took Dumervil about a second to get around Polumbus.

Re: Why I'm Not Gonna Panic About Our QB

Merriweather has to realize that he has to get his strike zone down around the waist and keep his head up. Until he does that then this is going to keep happening.

The RB caused it by lowering his head at the last instant. Not Brandon's fault.

I agree but when heads collide he's not going to get the benefit of the doubt.

The hit Swerenger got on Welker was worse. Welker lowered HIS head and Swerenger hit him with his shoulder pad and still got flagged. These rules now have gotten so out of hand it's ridiculous. It's not even football anymore.

Re: Why I'm Not Gonna Panic About Our QB

Cousins is further along in the process than Robert is when it comes to reading defenses and going through the progressions. He's had four full years at college of training, watching film, and playing to get it down correct. Robert on the other hand ran a fast paced no huddle offense that wasn't based on reading defenses. Cousins generally makes the correct read, but his throws are inconsistent. His upside is nowhere close to what Robert could achieve if he masters the pro-style offense. He's still a long ways off from doing so.

This is why I generally am not in favor of drafting these types of QBs so high without at least sitting them on the bench for a couple years to learn. Throwing them out to sink or swim generally ends up in a sinking situation. Especially when they have little to no experience with a pro-style offense.

The one thing that makes me chuckle is the lack of patience with fans. Most of you guys would have been calling for the backup had you been San Diego fans back in 2003. That would have been Drew Brees third year in the league that finished up with 2,100 yards, 11TDs, and 15 INTs.

On the other coin, you have the fans trying to turn back to clock as if Robert is somehow a rookie. He's not. This is his third year in the league so stop making excuses. New offense? So what. Still his third year. I say Robert should get a pass this entire year and if he doesn't get it done, you open the position up to competition next off-season.


One thing that I think is problematic is Robert is a bit entitled due to his draft status and stellar 2012 year. He hasn't had to really earn it like he should be. Robert also needs to ditch social media and focus on becoming the best QB he can possibly be. He's listening to too much media and has started to respond to criticisms. That's not what I want from a starting QB. He can be fan friendly when he's become a complete QB.


Please, don't let the below be the one thing you walk away from this post. If so, please smack yourself. Thanks.

For the record, it doesn't matter how RGIII or any of the Rams selections turns out. They won that trade the moment it happened. There is no discussion to this because the value simply didn't add up, especially with a team that lacked so many pieces.

In what possible world does this make sense? So based on this logic if, hypothetically, the Redskins go on to win 4 Super Bowls in RGIII's career and he becomes a Hall of Famer and the Rams continue to be, well, the Rams, then they still won the trade because they got better 'value'? Man I miss when football was football and not some bastardized version of calculus.

Draft picks are pretty much like lottery tickets. It's all a gamble and I'm a numbers man. I don't think you'll EVER see another trade of that magnitude in the NFL again. I don't think anybody outside of us and the Browns would have made that move.

Also, one player isn't going to win you a Super Bowl on his own.
