'I think it moved!!!'
Coach is trying to get RG3 the rookie of the year. Nothing wrong with your coach politicking for his players.
I think it's little things, like in the run breakdown thread, he switches hands before handing off, to fake that, which pulled their safety off. That's intangible.
Being a humble hard worker, is key. We are so lucky to have him.

I think he was talking about rookie quarterbacks as well, but people flipped when Mike Shanahan said this. I feel like RG3 is going to get some sort of weird, Tebow level of hatred from other fans...and I will bathe in their tears.
What other rookie quarterback has done what Robert has done?
3,100 Passing Yards
66.4 Completion Percentage
104.1 Quarterback Rating
752 Rushing Yards
6 Rushing TDs
7 Time NFL Offensive Rookie of the Week
2 Time NFC Offensive Player of the Week
2 Time NFC Offensive Rookie of the Month
First Rookie Pro Bowl Nomination since Dan Marino
59th Perfect Game in NFL History (versus the Eagles, even though technically it didn't count.)
The list of his accomplishment goes on and on and on. He's having, pretty much, the best rookie season of any NFL player ever. He still has a little (very little) ways to go before he's doing it like Aaron Rodgers, but to deny that he's doing things that have been done by a rookie before is either not knowing any better or just being plain ol' ignorant. That's what Mike was getting at.
The most frustrating thing is the repeated insistence that he's "not being asked to do too much but he's good at what he has to do". No, he's good period. Better than good, damn it. He's playing the game at an extremely high level.

He's getting the best kind of hate: jealousy hate.
MJ, Brady, Jeter...they all get/got it. It means you're one of the best

That's great to hear Shanny, but what we're REALLY concerned about is have you signed Eddie Royal yet?

This offense has an average at best OL.
Its missing its #1 TE.
The #1 WR has played roughly 1/4 of the season.
Robert as a rookie is the driving force behind an offense that is 4th in yards and 5th in scoring in the NFL.
Last year I thought Cam Newton was the best rookie QB I have ever seen.
Griffin is having a better year.
I thought Griffin was the best QB prospect in the draft, it turns out he's even better.
Griffin is already one of the better QBs in the league.
Shanny has been around some of the greats, Montana, Young and Elway. So for him to say this is 'kind of a big deal'! I don't think he meant rookie, RGIII is the whole package plus. Can anyone name one QB that has had it all as RG seems to have?
RT @WashWizards Wizards fans chanting rg-3 for absolutely no reason and that's perfectly fine with me!!!!
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!
