Today showed why RGIII (or running QB's) won't win

157 posts in this topic

RGIII is not much bigger than Vick, and QB's that use their legs as a big part of their game are much more likely to have major injury issues.

Vick had 1 full season in a 10+ year career, and RGIII won't be any different. Hard to help your team win a Super Bowl when you're on the sidelines.

On a side note Kirk Cousins looked pretty good.

Yea, that one was rough, I think that will probably be the nail in the coffin on this being the predominant type of offense for RG3 starting next year. I'm a skins fan but I even say to myself those opportunities to get hit, I don't care how great the scheme is, aren't worth it to a potentional 15 year franchise player if you protect him the right way.

Was there a flag on that play for late hit? I don't think there should be one but I'm curious

No idea why RGIII or Vick don't slide feet first. It's almost like they enjoy getting hit by 250+ pound defenders.

The skins were down late in the 4th. He was trying to convert. No flag.

I think it would be much wiser of a career type decision to slide feet first, and actually be able to play the next down.

Nothing good happens when they dive head first. Fumbles, big hits, injuries, etc all happen.

Interesting, He slid feet first a couple times before. Will he learn his lesson this time?

But he won.....he is a rookie....he will adapt.....cam newton haven't been injured running....

some of the haters can't wait for something negative to happen to say i told you so.....andrew luck is struggling against bad teams yet people say he is better than rg3.....luck completed 47% today vs titans.....50% qb rating.....tim tebow like numbers........MRI on rg3 came back negative....he will learn from this....he was just trying to make a play for his team .....even when injured he led his team to the red zone to give cousins the chance to tie the game.....wow !

You can't take his running away, it is what makes him the quarterback that he's been all his career. That's why they took 2 quarterbacks, and that's why Indianapolis took Luck. Good pocket passers are a rare commodity. Griffen looks more injury prone than Randall, and Randall was a heartbreaker.

So? it was a team win.....the guy was limping and still setup redskins to score tie the game.

Yeah and he all but ended any hope at the Redskins making a run at the division. Your starting QB needs to have the ability to play all 16 games if you want a shot at winning a championship.

Who am I praising? I don't hate RG3. I think you're confusing me with someone else. RG3 is a rookie and I'm not going to judge him until next season maybe

He's not an Eagles fan. He hangs around to call everyone a racist that prefers not to have any more running quarterbacks.

Don't be an idiot. Both are rookies. Brady showed that Luck is still a rookie. RG3 finally played a defense worth talking about. RG3 also got hurt doing the same thing Vick has done for his whole career(run and not slide feet first). If RG3 doesn't change it up, defenses will take him out.

That is why he is a rookie....he will learn from all this.....plz stop judging rg3 through the lenses that you judge vick.....they are different players at this stage in their career....funny how u judge rg3 from what u saw from vick...and u claim luck to be the next great QB with tebow like numbers.....Vick was injured while playing in the pocket lol....big ben too lol....

Luck could end up next year like Cam this year and suck. RG3 is a running QB and so has a higher chance of getting injured. I'm done with you though since you're such an RG3 nut hugger
