Doc Walker is a former player....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:03 am : link
and just another minion on Snyder's payroll that works for the "unbiased" Redskins media.

Doc Walker, Larry Michael, Sonny Jergenson, Sam Huff, I forget the other clown in the booth with those last two loons.
the thing about this article is  
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 9:03 am : link
there's no predictions - just comments from a bunch of RGIII's teammates being in awe of the kid's arm - and what he can do with it. Rex Grossman actually sounds jealous and intimidated by it.

Not for nothing - but the skins getting a good QB makes them very dangerous competitors
Does it, though?  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:04 am : link
Cam Newton had a fantastic rookie year. Didn't stop them from going 6-10.
Greg from LI : 6/1/2012 9:05 am : link
Frank Herzog before he retired
You hear nothing about Wilson  
Snee07 : 6/1/2012 9:06 am : link
because "talk is cheap" and we need to "play the game." I didn't even bother opening the link.
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 9:06 am : link
let's discount next season and take the long view here - the skins haven't had a decent QB in a Looooong Time…

If this kid has half the tools and smarts being reported - the Skins are going to be for real.
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 9:08 am : link
do you have any doubts that Carolina is going to be better than last year?

Cam Newton is the real deal.
area junc : 6/1/2012 9:09 am : link
The skins break out the hype whenever they can and havent had a good qb prospect in a long time.

Vick has a jaw dropping Arm too: in this league its about reading defenses and delivering on time....well see!
I was in awe  
bois : 6/1/2012 9:09 am : link
Of Jamarcus Russel's throwing ability during warmups of a game at Giants Stadium. Guy had a cannon, just effortlessly flinging it all over the place. It was hard not to glance across the field and notice Eli simply didn't have that natural ability, that throwing power.

Giants won 44-7.
Good luck RGIII  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:10 am : link
The Redskins had a depth problem on the line last year, and the general consensus seems to be that they didn't do much to address it this offseason. They still have an issue at right tackle if Jammal Brown can't get over his hip problems.

Cam Newton had arguably the best rookie season ever for a quarterback, and his team was under .500. Even if you think he can emulate the stats that Cam Newton did last year (and even if you think RGIII is great, you can't bank on that), its not a given that the redskins are going to be great.

They should be solid and competitive, nothing more IMO. If he does pan out, this year isn't the year to be nervous, it's the future.
You know who really has to love these reports?  
jcn56 : 6/1/2012 9:10 am : link
Browns fans.

I mean, they have to want someone dead in the FO over there right about now, right?
it's hard to impress you guys - lol  
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 9:11 am : link
if the reports were he was stinking it up - you'd be laughing about how foolish the skins were - I never saw any respect coming out of fellow teammates for Russell. Never ever.
We've been playing against great QB's....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:12 am : link
for awhile now in this division. We have the solution for that. Good pass rush. I'm not worried no matter how he looks.

He should be worried about his offensive line when he plays us.
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 9:13 am : link
the skins beat us twice last year - with Rex Grossman at the helm - and that flawed Offensive line
AcidTest : 6/1/2012 9:13 am : link
Everybody knew RGIII had a cannon, and he has certainly looked as good as anyone could expect, but he hasn't even played a preseason game.

As others have noted, Cam Newton had an insane rookie year, and the Panthers were still 6-10.
Fluke. We were due.  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:15 am : link
We had beat them how many times in a row up to that point? 8 or 9?

Either way, I'll believe it when I see it. Money talks, and bullshit walks, and the Redskins have been doing a lot of walking for the past decade.
I'm sure Griffin will be fine  
bois : 6/1/2012 9:16 am : link
Just having fun with it.
the Redskins won three games other than the two with us  
Greg from LI : 6/1/2012 9:18 am : link
Total, complete fluke. Not going to happen this year.
There must  
ctc in ftmyers : 6/1/2012 9:19 am : link
be a different article linked some where. This one doesn't predict success, failure,or record. Talks about arm strength and accuracy. Something we all knew about before he was drafted.
Well the Panthers sucked...  
Dunedin81 : 6/1/2012 9:19 am : link
because their defense sucked. Newton was not the problem.
Right, my point in bringing up Cam Newton...  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:20 am : link
was that one man does not make a team. That's also why I posted the article about the Redskins offensive line, who you haven't heard a peep about this year, because they suck.
Get this effin season started already!  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:21 am : link
I'm ready for us to defend the crown!
mikecf2 : 6/1/2012 9:30 am : link
Was unblockable remember?
I'm not one of the morons who thought that....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:32 am : link
so that statement means nothing to me.
But it is similar....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:33 am : link
in highlighting how ridiculous trying to judge the upcoming season in the early offseason is.

However, I expect RGIII to have a considerably better career than Awasom.
whoa whoa whoa  
Greg from LI : 6/1/2012 9:35 am : link
Are you sure you want to go that far out on a limb?
I think the guy will be good, RGIII that is....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:36 am : link
I like him. He seems like a smart kid and a helluva athlete.

BUT, that franchise has been terrible for over a decade. It starts up top. Bruce Allen is no great franchise builder either. Shanahan is an average coach. They dug a huge hole for themselves over the past decade with all of their sh-tty signings.

And what's really going to sting them, is that lost 18 million this year in dead money, 18 million next year, and they don't have a first round pick until 2015.

That's typical Redskins. Until that BS stops, I'm not impressed. They suck.
The Giants are the best, most talented team in the division.  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:38 am : link
The rest of the division should fear us.

They have the best coach, the best QB, the best pass rusher(s), and the best depth across the board.

We are talented everywhere.
And sorry for my enthusiasm....  
Britt in VA : 6/1/2012 9:38 am : link
I'm fired up this morning.
dorgan : 6/1/2012 9:39 am : link
a great athlete.
But, you just never know how things will turn out with a young QB.

For those of you too young to remember, check out the linked video of one of the best arms I've ever seen.
He put Terry Bradshaw on the bench for a while and by rights should have stayed the starter in Pittsburgh.

FatHeadTommy : 6/1/2012 9:39 am : link
Loved that response. That shine box shit kills me.
Maybe Skins  
lugnut : 6/1/2012 9:42 am : link
can plug Cousins into OL to keep RGIII upright -- that's the most use they can get out of that crazy pick.
I remember hearing  
Pete in MD : 6/1/2012 9:43 am : link
that Eli looked awful in the first few OTAs of his rookie year.
The Redskins usually don't win the Super Bowl until August  
old timer : 6/1/2012 9:52 am : link
And this is only June. It came early this year.
I don't believe there's any question he can play  
Bill in Springfield : 6/1/2012 10:56 am : link
but he can't carry a dysfunctional team on his shoulders.
Some of you guys are acting like he's going to be better than Sanchez.  
WideRight : 6/1/2012 11:48 am : link
Fuck RGIII  
Anakim : 6/1/2012 11:49 am : link
Let him meet Mr. JPP and then we'll see how confident he is
Keep in mind this is the guy doing the reporting  
BlueHurricane : 6/1/2012 12:05 pm : link
Frank Herzog didn't retire from the broadcast booth...  
tony stg : 6/1/2012 12:21 pm : link
... he was kicked out and replaced by Snyder schill Larry Michaels (I think... but I've been gone from DC almost 7 years and I could be wrong on the guy's name or if he's still even there).
lol @ blue hurricane  
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 12:23 pm : link
now that was a funny
They were also in awe of McNabb  
Ten Ton Hammer : 6/1/2012 12:25 pm : link
in camp.
gidiefor : Mod : 6/1/2012 12:37 pm : link
that was quite a piece that film about Gillam
dorgan : 6/1/2012 12:41 pm : link
it's about as humble as you'll ever see Bradshaw. He knew Gilliam was more talented than he was and you can see it in his eyes during that interview.

I remember him well. He could throw a football through a sheet of plywood.
Obviously, that team will probably get worse before it gets better.  
Mark C : 6/1/2012 1:24 pm : link
Let's just hope that, by the time RGIII gets through the growing pains, the owner will have the team shackled to a few more big stupid contracts again.
arm strength  
BigBlueCane : 6/1/2012 1:38 pm : link
is the most overrated stat for a QB, what matters is what's between his ears.
When Eli Retires and "The Arm" is just coming into his prime...  
M.S. : 6/1/2012 2:01 pm : link
...then I'm gonna start worrying.
Mark C : 6/1/2012 2:28 pm : link
Word. Just remember though, the Giants aren't winning Super Bowls now just because they got Eli. It started there, but they had to make a whole lot more smart personnel decisions and manage the salary cap, none of which Skins ownership has shown a capacity to do...
I hope he ends up good  
Go Terps : 6/1/2012 2:31 pm : link
I believe that our own success is due in part to the general quality of the division. By the time we make the playoffs we've usually already played huge games.

Greatness isn't acheived by ducking anybody.
going to have to rename him after he plays the Giants  
giantfanboy : 6/1/2012 3:10 pm : link
new nickname will be "The Back"

seriously losing to the Skins twice is the one minor blemish on last season
