heck no!!!! No disrespect, but the Redskins had a team built already to plug a franchise QB into and they are still at the bottom of the wide open NFC East as usual. They even tailor the offense to RG3 with that college option stuff to no avail. Even the Panthers beat them. Plus RG3 seems kind of reckless the way he plays and finally I'm tired of all of his commercials that air every 5 minutes.
If anything, Griffin plays too conservatively in the passing game. He generally does a good job of protecting himself running with the ball now compared to in the beginning of the season but it is fair to say that he is reckless when he thinks it's important to get those extra yards. Most of our featured skill position players weren't with the team last year and our playbook was overhauled in a significant way in the offseason, so it's a bit of a misnomer to say that we're plugging Griffin in to a fully established offense.
I understand that, but Davis and Moss were not hurt until recently. Moss was hurt just in the last game. The earlier poster made it seems like all his receivers were on IR together.
The Colts have played without their number 2 receiver all year, there starting tightend was also hurt about the same as Davis. I don't feel too sorry for the rushing attack of the Skins, they are still better then the Colts. Morris has been a top 10 rusher all year long. Was actually number 1 for a while.
I just think this injury explanation is a bit of an excuse honestly. Luck has a great receiver in Wayne, then he has a rookie and a guy who was cut by the Titans just last year. It's not like he is working with all world talent. It goes back to what superman said earlier, nobody thought anything of these guys when the season started, they have some success with Luck and now all the sudden the Colts are loaded with talent. It's laughable really. Then you also have to figure in that Luck has been the most under duress QB in all football and for the first 6 weeks was working behind a new line each week because of injuries and i think that evens things out if you wanna play the injury card.
I agree that things are roughly even between the two teams, injuries and otherwise. I never actually said anything to the contrary, I was just filling in the details for you.
If there's one thing that doesn't even out in terms of the situation both teams find themselves in, it's scheduling. I certainly envy the schedule you guys have played so far relative to ours... but I also know that there's not that big of a difference between good teams and bad teams talent-wise, so it only counts for so much.
i look at it as a positive
even with 5 drops and a poor defense he is still a top qb right now and statistically the best in the nfc east right now. we werent going to the sb anyways but my point is rg3 is playi better than luck
I'd ease up a bit on that last statement. Griffin has just played his worst game as a pro against Carolina and Luck seems to be showing consistent, incremental improvement. At this point I'd say they're close to even but if Griffin returns to his old form to start the season he is certainly capable of pulling away and perhaps clinching the rookie of the year award.
