If playing at a high level was as easy as RG3 makes it look, everyone would be doing it.

Much more of our offense is predicated on Griffin's decision-making ability than some people would lead you to believe. Morris is a great back but the play action game isn't at it's best unless you are dangerous both running and passing.

RG3's dual-threat ability gives a back like Morris that extra second to hit the hole because the D is concerned with RG3 and the formations. Once Griffin was knocked out of the Atlanta game Morris went from dominating to nonexistent.

and play defense.
this statement doesn't even warrant a response. smfh

denver did the same thing for tebow which why he had whatever success he had. obviously RG3 is way better than tebow however.
Griffin can actually beat you with his arm unlike Tebow and the Redskins have a historically terrible secondary. horrible comparison.

lol @ comparing a player with a 104 passer rating and a 67% completion percentage toTebows 40 something completion percentage and 70 something QB rating.

RG3 doesnt even have 3000 yards passing.
RGIII has been without his #1 WR several games and lost his top 10 TE in week 7. I could easily drift into the "well, if RG3 had Reggie Wayne to throw to..." argument.
he redskins are babysitting RG3 with the offense they're running.
Can you see Eli Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, etc. running that offense?

Thats the point. Griffin is one of a very few number of QBs that can actually run that offense. Griffin actually can run for almost 100 yards in a game.

the colts are giving luck the whole playbook. he's throwing the ball 40 times a game on average. he's second in the league in attempts. the colts are pass first, run second and they dont have much of a running game. peyton threw a ton of INTs in his rookie season too. when you're a rookie thats gonna happen when you're being asked to basically carry an offense.
Luck throws more because he puts his team in a hole more and the team is forced to abandon the run. The Colts are an average rushing team. The median team at #16 rushes for less than 7 yards more than the Colts (at #22). The reason the Colts don't rush more is that they are being put in a hole with iNTs (many of them pick 6's) by that QB that you keep saying is not at fault. When in fact, it is very much partly his fault that they are passing so much to begin with

The redskins are running an offense to limit RG3s mistakes while the colts are living and dying on andrew lucks arm.
No, there running a offense that best utilize his strength. do you have the slightest idea mike shanny is running his west coast offense and adding other elements because of the traits Rg3 possesses.

Griffin actually has poise in the pocket, much better pocket presence, better arm/accurate, and doesn't run in the pocket like a chicken the second he senses pressure.

How many Redskins games have you actually watched this year?
