Lol im sorry your team is not making the playoffs. But do you really think that meaningless award will make you feel any better? Manning's M.V.P's never helped us with the pain of going 1 and done. And no small award will make up for the pain you will experience watching Luck in the playoffs on your couch having already retired your RG3 Jersey for the season.

Edit: Also, I am not admitting Rg3 has won it. I am simply stating that around this forum we are thinking playoffs first, rookie awards 2nd. I am sorry to see you and your teams fans don't feel the same way.

RG3 and it's not even close.

Congrats to him on his great rookie season so far, He looks impressive, Chances are your right he will win it this year after all it was no secret he did have better talent overall on BOTH sides of the ball.......Oh wait I forgot 5-6, you and the rest of the fans must be ecstatic finally winning some form of award (admittedly I think he will win), I hope that consolation prize is still keeping a big grin on your face come January when us Colts fans are enjoying our team in the Wild Card

If the Giants lose Sunday against the Packers and we beat them next week, we'll be sitting atop the NFC East. If our play in all but two games of our relatively tough schedule is any indication, our playoff chances aren't actually that much worse than yours although the road ahead certainly isn't easy.

On a different note, I don't know why number1 hasn't been banned from here yet. He wouldn't last two seconds on our main board acting like he has been on here.

That is us midwesterners for you. We are a little less mouthy and a little more tolerant of outsiders. (wink :))

Every week is on and off. If RG3 throws 5 picks next week, everyone will be off his bandwagon. After Doug Martin had 2 huge games, he was suddenly one of the favourites despite not doing all that much until recently.

I've never seen a player reap the rewards of so many broken plays in my life. Props to him for getting the ball there but dang it's just crazy. At least once a game one of those Wash WR is 10yds away from the nearest defender for an easy TD. Or a slant turn into an 80yd TD. Crazy.

Wow this troll is annoying.

I'm pretty sure it's actually a close race. Plenty of games still to be played. Troll needs to stop making troll threads.

Great point, I think it's the same obnoxious person who used to troll on the board. Most likely the little kid was banned then made another account because it basically seems like the exact same person.

I would hope that the majority of any fanbase would be more concerned with the overall performance of the team

How is this guy not banned already? RG3 himself said it, he wouldn't last on other boards.

Oh wait, he said he wasn't trolling, so it must be true.

RG3 might get to hold the trophy for the eventual winner but will probably be injured and misses the presentation.

I bet if Peyton wins the MVP he sends it to RG3 as well. Just out of respect for how much RG3 is doing this season and how much he means to this league and the future of the NFL as the new :goat:.

I already can imagine in my mind, a passing of the torch ceremony from Manning/Brady to RG3 now (with Brees/Rodgers peaking from behind).

Honestly? Not really. I mean it's nice to win these awards but if you don't then you move on. And if you do win it then good for the player.

But, either way it's cool. You know what I mean.

eh let him have his laughs now, Considering teams that the Redskins would have to beat out for a wild card berth the Skins fans dont exactly have anything else to look forward to this year regardless if Robert wins or loses. Come January the trolling will turn into posts calling for Dan Snyders head on a stick

Am I imagining things or does RG3 wear headbands at times after games?

Only Brady can pull that look off IMO and I never thought I would say that out loud.

He's looked good more than not (shut-up Jules ;) ). He is a very good rookie, for sure a leading candidate as RotY.

I know some here are bound by biases, but the truth is the truth.

your opinion doesn't equal the truth. he has been good, but not nearly as good as his stats would indicate.

I've watched him play. The numbers don't do him justice. I've been hard on the dude for some issues I thought indicated immaturity and selfishness.

If I thought I had some opening to take a shot, I suppose I would. If for no other reason, just simply to save face.

Much like our beloved new stud QB, that kid don't play like a kid.

i've seen every one his games...much of his game is based on one read throws and throws that barely pass the line of scrimmage. his perfect passer rating sunday was a joke....actually an insult to anyone who has had a perfect passer rating.

he is a much better runner than i thought he was coming out of college. i knew he was fast, but much more elusive than i thought.

This is ill informed nonsense . I am not sure you have seen any RGIII game because I am not sure who you are describing here. RGIII has more pass plays that went have gone for 20 yards or more than any QB in the NFL - and they are not screens that the reciever makes from nothing with the ball in his hands . You obviously have not seen Robinson catch this week where the ball was perfectly placed (or even the Moss catch - from the 6 but a pefrect pass against very good coverage .

In the last two games combined (both divisional games) he has thrown for 8 TDs, 1 Interception and - 9 incomplete passes - 9 . IF that does not desreve some props then I can see there is no talking to you .

What you are saying is RGIII is helped out by his receivers - who are his recievers ? HOF bound Reggie Wayne and company ?

And you are also infering that 10 weeks into the season that no one has worked out RGIII and taken away his 1 read colour by numbers offense . The reason why there is often a guy running open is because of the reliance on play action but Griffin for a 1st year rookie handing off to a another 6th round rookie is playing the play action so well it is very very effective, even when you know what is comming .

Seriously - if you are going to critise a player on another team (not even in the same confrence) - at least keep it real .

Right now both teams are in second place in their divisions . 6-4 or 5-6 - Not worlds apart -

You don't fault a guy for throwing to his first read when his first read is open or for taking advantage of quick hitting routes in the short game. What's more, you don't seem to consider the fact that a lot of the route combinations we run allow Griffin to make multiple reads without having to look away from a given area, which can give off the illusion that he's stuck on his first read when he is not.

There's nothing inherently noble about passing up on a short passing game to take more chances deep. You should be complaining about Arians' lack of similar concepts instead of how Griffin benefits from them in our offense.

Ohhhhh.....I was thinking he was doing really good until you explained how he sucks because he had a perfect passer rating and he makes quick reads.

boy, that was a nice attempt to be cute.

yes, i clearly said he sucked....spot on. but that is typical of this board when there is a disagreement.....just put words in someones mouth and hope it sticks....good job.

yes, he often makes quick one/maybe two throw reads...and that is backed up by actual nfl players/experts who give things called interviews. most recently teddy bruschi and gregg cosell said just that...in fact they both said the offense isn't asking him to do much at all in the passing game.

perfect passer rating? tons of short screen passes with a blown coverage for a td and a poor decision into double coverage where he was bailed out by santana moss thrown in.

i'm not faulting him...but i'm not going to give him a lot of praise for it. the redskins should keep doing it...till someone stops regularly.

and no, i don't consider it, because that's not what i hear from guys who played the game....instead of what i hear from guys on the interwebs.

and actually, i have complained about arians and his lack of a short passing game. and what i want to "complain" about is up to me, not a redskins fan.

Griffin's also responsible for the playfakes that cause defenses to be out of position and make his job easier and he frequently has the option to hand it off instead of throwing, which gives him another read that most people don't even think about. He may be the best in the NFL already at selling those.

That throw to Moss is probably the ONLY long ball where Griffin's given the defense a decent shot at a pick this season. Can't say the same about Luck, who is much more inclined towards those throws and has been bailed out in very similar situations before. Personally, I think it's a good sign when a QB is willing to trust his receiver to go up and get it in certain situations. IIRC, that Moss TD was a 3rd and long out of field goal range with good coverage underneath. Had it been picked it probably would have been no worse than a punt but because our QB took a chance we got a score.

    • For whatever reason, my last few films have been controversial ones. I didn't plan it that way. It just sort of happened, but I will admit that I have always been drawn to provocative subjects ever since I can remember. My latest review called "Confirmation" a 2016 political drama directed by Rick Famuyiwa slides right into that hot button territory as well. I promise to behave myself here & only establish broad brush strokes that the director portrays in this 1 hour & 50 minute piece of cinema, but it will be extremely difficult to restrain my true feelings since I graduated from high school in 1991 & remember very well the US Senate Hearings on Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas on TV & the sexual harassment charges leveled against him by Anita Hill, a former subordinate under Thomas's supervision at the EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.]   In the interest of full disclosure, I'm gonna be honest with my audience & say that I believed Miss Hill's testimony back then & I never thought Mr. Thomas should have been confirmed to replace Thurgood Marshall either & the director has this same slant or bias in this production too. Watching this flick took me right back to 1991 during the George H.W. Bush Administration who submitted Thomas's name for consideration to the highest judicial office in the land. It was almost bizarre to see younger versions of anchormen Tom Brokaw & Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, & footage of Peter Jennings & Tim Russert, former host of "Meet The Press" both deceased now. The picture does a nice job of blending fictional testimony scenes from Hill & Thomas with archival news footage from CBS, NBC, ABC, & CNN. It's odd to see the primitive nature of TVs & computers back then long before iPhones & iMacs were present in every office in America.    In a nutshell, the movie is divided between 2 sides: Those who believed that Clarence Thomas is being railroaded by groups like NOW [Natl. Organization Of Women] simply because he leans toward the Conservative side on issues & Those on the Progressive side who believed that Anita Hill was sexually harassed by her boss who made several unwanted advances & lewd sexual references toward her based solely on her appearance & physical attractiveness as he saw it refusing to change his behavior after numerous requests to do so.    Plotline: The year is 1991 & Clarence Thomas [Wendell Pierce] has been nominated to fill a vacant seat on the Supreme Court. The chairmen of these Senate Hearing is Joe Biden [Greg Kinnear] from Delaware. The process appears to going along smoothly for Thomas until a current professor of law at The University of Oklahoma named Anita Hill [Kerry Washington] decides to reluctantly testify before Congress in the Senate. I won't bore my audience with Congressional names or the staffers who work on their behalf on both sides of the DC aisle other then to say this: The bulk of this film focuses on the testimony of Hill & how Thomas reacts to the allegations leveled against him.    Clarence Thomas's supporters somehow convince Biden to deliver his testimony first & while giving his opening remarks Thomas claims that these sexual harassment allegations are false, unfounded, & that he treated all his female employees with respect. When Anita Hill is allowed to testify before the Senate, she tells the body assembled there in a long, prepared, typed statement that Mr. Thomas constantly tried to ask her out socially, bragged about the size of his organ, talked about several adult films he had seen despite making her feel very uneasy, & that on 1 occasion he made a deplorable joke about hair from a private region of his body being found on the aluminum can itself. As you listen to Hill say these words out loud, it dawns on you that all the members in these judiciary hearings are men with zero women in elected office at this point. Think about that reality for a second.    Despite the fact that Anita Hill is well educated, well read, articulate, a credible witness, & very bright; the following doubts & allegations are brought against her testimony: Why did it take her so long to bring these sexual harassment charges forward? Why did she continue to have contact with Thomas? Why didn't she just talk about misconduct sooner & bring formal charges against him? Is she just looking for simple fame, fortune, & publicity? Was she secretly attracted to him & Thomas declined her advances so therefore she wants revenge now? Did she get some of her crazy harassment allegations from books like "The Exorcist?" Did she develop a secret, sexual crush on Thomas known as erotomania like she's some sort of mental deviant?    As you watch the absurd theories cast against Miss Hill by senators who believe this is an unfair witch hunt against Clarence Thomas, it makes you upset or it made me furious rather than none of these male Congressmen ever considered the possibility that men in positions of authority could use their stature & influence to manipulate the situation to their advantage thru unwanted advances or even intercourse because they write evaluations on their subordinates that they oversee, they determine a women's future thru promotions or recommendations; they can blackball or prevent females from working at other law firms or any law firm rather ever again. Could a women studying law really saw no to her boss's advances back in 1991 with the 'boys will be boys' mentality? Sadly no, not really. Not if you wanna advance or climb up the legal ladder anyway. In addition, this really ticked me off. Anita Hill's claims of harassment weren't taken seriously in the Senate chamber because she was a black woman instead of a white woman stating these allegations against Thomas. What?!! That's absurd! Why should the color of the woman's skin even matter. That's freaking ridiculous & very insulting.    You wanna know how Clarence Thomas refutes these unsettlingly serious allegations? He calls the whole backlash situation against him a "high tech lynching." Excuse me? You have got to be joking. So let me get this straight, a former employee under your supervision who happen to be black just like you has committed a vile act of racist cruelty against Thomas simply because he was asked several times to stop engaging in lewd conversations about her appearance & Clarence claims that what Anita did to him by testifying is the equivalent to a hate crime? I'm about ready to smack you sir. And the worst part is that nobody in the Senate challenges Thomas on such ludicrous remarks at all. Unbelievable.    Hill even agrees to take a lie detector test to prove that she is telling the truth. However, many who oppose her assertions claim that the results are meaningless because testers can make anybody pass polygraphs if they want. Ah no, first you establish a base line with false responses & then you monitor a person's heart rate & breathing patterns for erratic fluctuations. The only individuals who can pass a polygraph are psychopaths & serial killers with no appreciation for right or wrong & no impulse control. Lie detector tests are almost impossible to fake as long as the professional examiner knows what the hades they are doing.    The picture ends with Miss Hill returning back to Oklahoma. She is tired of fighting against unfounded innuendo about her reputation & character assassination tactics. Once back teaching, she takes comfort & solace in all the letters she receives from women who thank her for opening their eyes against sexual harassment. Clarence Thomas becomes a Supreme Court Justice as we all know.    This film does make think twice about what you say to your female colleagues in the workplace as it should. Can you say some looks nice today without it coming across as inappropriate? I guess it depends on a person's tone, sincerity, & maintaining eye contact without visually wondering to other sections of a co-workers anatomy I guess. Lets roll with a B- on "Confirmation" because Hill & Thomas's performances were quite good & we never see Clarence believe he ever did anything wrong, even though he claims that he can't look his son in the eye anymore while undergoing the confirmation process anyway.    If I ever said anything that made a woman feel uncomfortable about her appearance or attractiveness, I'm sorry.        "Who's to say what's for me to say...be...do
      Cause a big nothing it'll be for me
      The land of opportunity
      The golden chance for me
      My future looks so bright
      Now I think I've seen the light"
