Why RGlll Will Be a Bust.


This should probably be a redskins blog post, but being an Eagles fan I'm hearing a lot of you are worried now that Wash has a possibly competent QB, they will be a much much improved team. I have absolutely no worries about facing RGlll until they make some serious adjustments to that offense to help him out.

The Redskins major problem, in my eyes, is the offensive line. They do run a zone blocking scheme and they're players are pretty good for the most part, but it has holes. The only two players I really like on that line are Trent Williams and Kory Licthenseiger (spell check). Both have history of injuries, and Williams has a history of getting in trouble as well. The whole right side needs to be replaced, and Montgomery is above average. Not to mention they have zero depth. Now the problem doesn't necessarily arise in how good the line is, but how good the opponents are this first year. I think RG3 is going to end up like Blaine Gabbert (totally different QBs) this first year, in the sense that he'll be hit so much and so often he will start to get shook and not be able to handle the pressure. Looks take a closer look.

I won't get into the our division. Dallas in my eyes with the addition of two quality CB's may have just made the best defense in the league, not to mention I'm focusing on pass rush here so Demarcus Ware, enough said. Philly now with Fletcher Cox will have probably the best DL in the entire league, and obviously NYG bases everything they do on the pass rush. Besides us, they face the Vikings, Panthers, and Ravens. All of which have more than competent pass rush ability. Jared Allen likes to smash young QBs and Ravens just like to hurt evereyone.

The second problem I see with the Redskins is he has no true number 1 WR. Santana Moss is a candidate to get cut before the year starts and Pierre Garcon drops balls consistently that hit him in the hands, expect a big year from Fred Davis and when defenses start to take away him RG3 will be forced to run a lot more and thus, get hit more **Vick Complex**

Also, it doesn't look like Tim Hightower is coming back, so that leaves Royster and Helu as the two main backs. I'm not going to say they are both total fails, but neither seems to me like a true franchise back. More than capable back ups, both of which I'd take over Dion Lewis so don't get me wrong there.

So all in all. RG3 I think has the tools to be a great QB in the NFL, and 4-5 years down the road, I will worry. But the ransom of picks they traded away to get him and the lack of talent surrounding him. I think its going to take some time for him to actually have a team worth competing in the NFC East.
