The homers will shrug him off. But if their defense improves, the Redskins will be force to be reckoned with for years. Look at what he is doing with all the no name receivers so far. He throws very few bad passes. To me his year so far is much better than Cam's rookie year. Cam is not great at reading defense whereas RG3 seems to be very good at it so far. I think RG3 will be the better QB out of him and Luck when it is all said and done.
“Every Monday, we come in here and I’m just kind of looking at him out of the corner of my eye, making sure he’s OK,” Lichtensteiger said. “He’s a tough guy, and he’s not going to complain about it. But you don’t like to see your quarterback, especially a guy that is carrying the load that he is, taking those hits.”
I don't care about Cam or Luck or any other QB. They have nothing to do with my point.
Rg3 is taking a beating every single week. Even his teammates are talking about it. I don't care how good of a player you are, if you continue to get hit the way he has and think he somehow won't get hurt, then you're missing my point.
He can't take the beating every week. No one can. Especially a player his size.
