    Since you guys are so interested in Griffin, but apparently can't seem to find anything positive to say about him, I thought you may find this article enlightening.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...-tutor-rg3-looks-100-percent-healthy/7613487/

    Here are some good quotes:

    "He could have very easily lost it given the year he had. I put him through a gantlet of drills. And Robert made all the throws, showing great skills. It sure appeared to me that he took that next step as a pocket passer."

    "Watching Griffin take a step back during his season of struggle, Shea noticed that he was sailing some throws because he was not finishing his weight transfer on his plant leg — the one that underwent major surgery in January 2013."

    "For some reason, they just dropped the ball on his footwork fundamentals,'' Shea said. "I'm convinced. You get so caught up on schemes and decisions and progressions and they forget that a quarterback needs just as much attention on his footwork and fundamentals as well.''

    "He's gotten his release point back to where he feels very good about it,'' Shea said. "The ball is coming out at a nice, high point. When I finished with him on Saturday, I said, 'Man, this kid is ready.' Which I didn't know how it was going to go, not having been around him for over a year and knowing what he went through last season."

    Him being healthy is not really the point. He's so injury prone, the next injury is not that far away with him.

    Oh come on....come up with something else already. Dude took a direct shot in the knee by Ngata. Tom Brady took a direct shot in the knee a few years ago, is he injury prone too? RG3 didn't get injured last year, I believe Romo did. OMG, Injury prone!

    Griffin dealt with a major leg injury in college. He has had a concussion or two as well. The term injury prone doesn't mean anything, but he has had several injuries in his college and pro career. Health was one of the factors he was benched at the end of this past season.

    I understand his injuries in college, but ACL/MCL injuries are not what they used to be. He had 1 concussion as well. I would prefer that he didn't have the knee injuries, but it seems knee injuries are a bit of the norm anymore. Every year 3-5 superstars end up doing it.....they are mostly coming back without issues. Peterson, Revis, Charles, all positions that require more with the knee than QB. Just like Von Miller who will come back and most likely be dominate once again next year. Your right, Griffin was benched because of health last season but I hope we are talking about the right health? Health as in he needed to be pulled before he got killed or suffered from another concussion. Our Oline stunk, our record stunk, we stunk, Mike was on his way out butthurt by Week 6, they sat him because our team was a joke. Not because he was injured.

    I guess we'll see how his footwork and release point looks in game situations when his first read is covered and he actually has to read a defense and make a decision.

    This nonsense that he's a "one-read" QB is so false, it's hard to believe the people who spout it actually believe it. He was going through progressions IN HIS FIRST PRO GAME against the Saints. Get new material people, or stop hating.

    I have no doubts he is now 100% healthy. The question is how long will that last once the season starts.

    Checkmate! Dude is obviously smart, why won't he extend his game to read the whole field? Limited @ this point (though he did light us up his rook season so no gloating) The reason we cling to that is that he runs after his first/second read? Durrr...but that one time(NO)? He obviously hasn't incorporated that into his "regular" game. He read a D one time and threw to his 3rd progression (shudder) You have a talent, too bad he is lazy;)

    nice try yourself- NOT.

    What profit would there be in his being honest and saying RG3 sucks?

    I suspect he'll do reasonably well this year if he'll learn to run more safely. He's going to take some shots. If he's throwing well he'll need to be gamed big time.

    Ok, you're right. RG3-10 has a great reputation for taking the time to go thru all of his reads. My bad. How silly of me to think I could sneek sumpin like this past a Skins fan.

    The "one read" criticism by fans for a 2nd year QB is one of the dumber critiques in fandom as no fan actually has any idea what play was called, what the checks were, what the defense actually was, and who was supposed to do what.

    We as fans assume "quick throw" equal "stare down WR and 1 read"

    Which is total bunk

    It is along with fans of any sports criticizing contract values and pretending to understand anything about contract structures or the salary cap.

    The good news is 1) RG3 is healthy and 2) healthy enough to work on his footwork and mechanics, which were excellent in 2012 pre Ngata injury, but garbage after and into 2013. Developing that muscle memory again for his mechanics is a huge boost this offseason. If Gruden coaxes the level of play out of Griffin that he did a talent limited Andy Dalton, Griffin will quickly return to 2012 form
