Default RG3 had better Cool It

LANDOVER, Md. -- The Washington Redskins became relevant again that moment in early March when they swung the blockbuster trade for the St. Louis Rams' No. 2 draft pick, making the Heisman-winning Robert Griffin III a dream come true in burgundy.
Not even Griffin's heart-stopping knee injury on Washington's game-tying drive late in the final two minutes could dispel the Redskins' mojo on this day. The spectacular rookie quarterback left the game for a play after being plowed into by Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, perhaps hyperextending Griffin's right knee, but then heroically re-entered for four plays before giving way for good to fellow Redskins rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins.

To me he's the most exciting new player in the NFL since Micahel Vick. And I mean the young Michael Vick in his athletic prime with the Falcons 10 years ago. But this kid is going to get hurt, hurt bad if he doesn't tone down his act a bit. He can still be great without being reckless.

He's a fun, dynamic player to watch, and the fact that he plays on one of the Cowboys' division rivals makes it easy for me to root for him.

But, I think his style of play is going to ultimately hurt his career. Dude has a solid arm, though, so he could be coached up to rely on his passing game and use the run when needed as last resort. Right now, it seems they are scheming to use his running abilities as a primary weapon, and that's just asking for long-term trouble when the inevitable injuries add up.

I think at this stage of the game, that's what they need to do, to make him successful. Last night, that play was to tie the game & they would have still needed a two point conversion to force overtime.

I think they are going about it the right way, I'm sure Shanahan & shanahan are in his ear all day Monday about what should have been done on every snap, including when he should have just thrown it away.

He's definitely going to have to change his approach in the future, he's too good behind the LOS to have him keep doing that. But it's a process.

Now only is RG3 a great athlete, but the dude is BRILLIANT! He's not a dumb athlete playing QB--ala Michael Vick. The dude has his law degree.

But I agree that somebody needs to teach him to slide occasionally. Would love to see a long career outta RG3, and at this rate he's gonna wear himself down or break himself apart.

He does not have a JD. He got a BA in political science in 3 years and was doing coursework for a masters in communication his last year. Not taking away from your point that he is smart, just a correction.

You know cak, after I posted it I began thinking about what I'd heard from my sister-in-law about that very thing. She's a BU alumn.

I stand corrected. Thank ya sir.

He really is. He's a well-spoken, humble guy, and it's difficult to root against him (unless you're a Cowboys fan). He's a dynamic athlete who doesn't have to use his legs to compensate for his lack of arm. Rather, his speed is just a complement to his arm.
