Count me among those who have been less than impressed by the preseason performance of RG III. Based on what I've seen thus far in 2014, he has still not fully recovered from that knee injury he suffered during his rookie season. His cat-like quickness is gone, and his confidence appears to be in tatters. Folks, even if RG III soldiers on to become a decent starter in the NFL, was he worth three (3) high #1 draft choices?
Perhaps I'm being hasty in my judgment, but it appears to me that back-up QB Kirk Cousins is a better choice for Jay Gruden's offense. If the Redskins could sucker some QB starved team to part with a #1 draft choice for Griffin, I'd recommend that they make that deal in a NY minute.
But, post 2014 draft, few teams remain that might be persuaded to make such a move. Though I have too much respect for Bill O'Brien to think that he'd pull the trigger on RG III, the Houston Texans are currently being led by the awful Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Jets, Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys could also be candidates. But, with the start of the season just two weeks away, it's doubtful that they would make such a huge QB move, until next season.
The QB mess aside, the Redskins do appear to have a decent OL and DL, and a good stable of RBs and WRs. Unlike in seasons past, I wish them well...and send out a hearty HAIL to team owner Danny Snyder, for refusing to buckle to the media and PC crowd regarding the changing of his team's name.
