We are a beat down fan base. There is all the reason in the world to be down on the Washington Redskins. Over the last twenty seasons, we've been conditioned to expect failure from our favorite team. Over the last ten years, we've come to expect a team that wins games in spite of itself. We have been conditioned to expect a defensive stalwart with meager offensive output.
That all changed the moment we drafted Robert Griffin III.
What we are witnessing is possibly the most elusive offense that this team has ever seen. Gibbs coached several impressive offensive units in the 80's and 90's however he did not have a player with the capability of RG3. He didn't have a player that could change the game in one snap. There were many players on his teams that were truly great. I don't think that any of them were as great as Robert Griffin III.
What we are witnessing is just be beginning of this young man's career. Even it his young age, he has had a drastic impact on the offense of this team. He inherited a team that would struggle to score 20 points on a weekly basis. With RG3 under center, it's an anomaly if they score less than 30. This is the team with RG3 at the helm. This is an offensive juggernaut.
We all know the offensive capability of this team. It's our expectations that need to change. We can't be upset if they are down by 10 or 20. This is a team that can, and will, overcome that. This is your modern Washington Redskins.
