Griffin..well...dude played like a stud.RGIII was spectacular. I think he's got the best situation of any of the
I agree that alongside Wilson he's in the best situation for team success.
The Seahawks lack our passing game talent/depth but overall they're a good football team returning a lot of the same talent.
Russel always seems to find away to give his team a chance to win, if Braylon doesn't go 'hands of stone on the last play of the game' he would have his first 4th qtr game winning drive.
I think Griffin kinda creates his own ideal situation when it comes to the running game.
Its like a synergistic relationship.
A good running game helps a rookie QB have success.
Griffin's ability to effect the backside contain creates more favorable blocking situations and directly allows the running game to have success.
Imo Griffin is the best prospect (an elite prospect like Cam) and he's in one of the best situations.
For the most part, yes I agree.1.) The organization is utterly committed to him for years. This is going to be tough to overcome for Weeden and Wilson, where their team commitments are very loose IMO.
2.) The Redskins defense is probably better than the Browns' and Seahawks', and certainly better than the Dolphins' and Colts'. I think our advantage here might be significant.
3.) Our coaching staff and HC are better than the staffs from each of those other teams.
4.) Our OL is better than the Colts' at least, probably at least a little better than the OLs in Cleveland and Miami as well.
5.) Luck has a good group of receivers in Indy, but our WRs are better than the crap they're trotting out in Cleveland and Miami and they're better than the guys in Seattle IMO.
Tot it all up and I think it comes out to RGIII being in the best situation to succeed. Do you agree?
1) I think all the teams are committed to their rookie QB unless of course their regime gets sacked then all bets are off.
I think Wilson would be in trouble on any other team.
But, I think Pete Carroll will always make the football honest decision when it comes to personnel.
2) I think the Seahawks defense is right up there with ours, I think the Dolphins are close and the Browns and Colts are far behind.
3) If game 1 is a sign of things to come I think Mike/Kyle are thinking outside the box and really committed to adapting to some cutting edge concepts.
But you know how this forum is, if I disagree here I'm gonna have to argue for days explaining why.
But, the NFL is a what have you done for me lately league and I'll say its hard for me to look at what the Seahawks did last year and not give Carroll and his staff credit.
I do think we're head and shoulders above both the Browns.
I think Pat Shurmur runs a static and unimaginitive version of the WCO that doesn't attack downfield.
I've always like Bruce Arians and I think Luck is gonna have a lot of production under his guidance.
They're gonna throw the ball a ton and Luck is probably gonna lead the rookie QBs in atts, yards, TDs, INTs.
Philbin doesn't strike me as a leader of men, but I guess some could argue that about Tony Dungy.
But, I think Mike Sherman is both Tannehill's best friend and worst enemy.
Sherman runs the Mike Shanahan's Denver WCO but imo he's a very limited playcaller and it showed even at the college level.
I don't think he's gonna scheme up open WRs like Kyle or Bruce Arians.
4) I think the Seahawks and Dolphins have better OLs and I think the Dolphins OL had a chance to become a very good unit. going forward. I think we're in the same boat as the Browns and Colts on the OL. Good enough through scheme and solid QB play to not be a total liability.
5) I think along with the Colts we have the most talent and depth at receiving corps.
The other teams stuggle badly to even match up.
The Browns and Dolphins are waiting for someone unproven to emerge (hoping against hope).
The Browns have some young players with upside at least.
The Dolphins have a bunch of #3-#4 guys, their #1 WR is probably a #3 on most teams.
