The purpose of me bringing up Rypien was to show that lesser QB's than DW4 have benefitted from good coaching. Though our talent overall is nothing like the teams I mentioned, it does show that if lesser QB's than DW4 can do well with proper coaching and tutelage, than there is no reason our offense and DW4 can't do better. I realize our defense has not been world beaters either but they can only carry the load and burden of a sucky offense for so long.Rypien is interesting because he was basically a proto Brock Oswieler that got coached up by some of the best in the business and surrounded by greatness at almost every position around him, 3 great receivers, an elite offensive line, and solid ground game and one of the most underrated defenses of all time on the other side of the ball(that D was the real catalyst for their 91 Super Bowl run).
He held out for more money in 92 and missed most of training camp, alienated his team mates and coaches with ego from winning Super Bowl MVP the year before. It’s really remarkable how absolutely dreadful he was that 92 season. He was really bad and held back a team that had the talent to get back to another Super Bowl(especially the defense), even with him playing like Brock Osweiler that year they still managed to make it to second round of the playoffs. He was so bad that Gibbs would call a lot of HB option pass plays late in the year when they desperately needed a score, it became like a running joke that the running back Ernest Byner was a better passer than Rypien was.
Washington having won Super Bowls in 1982, 1987 and 1991 all under different QB's has to show that coaching played a role. They used their QB's accordingly.
We have some serious weaknesses on our team but there is enough talent for them to make the playoffs. I do think it is likely to be another disappointing season in regards to playoff success simply due to a lack of talent. Still if coached right we could exceed expectations.
