It's the most obvious question on everyone's minds, so let's get it out of the way first: How will RG3 perform in his professional debut?
We are not sure how many snaps or series Mike Shanahan will give the new Redskins signal caller, but I wouldn't be surprised if he played the entire first quarter or more.
Unlike the Hall of Fame game, where Drew Brees was pulled after one series, RG3 needs practice. Griffin needs to get as many repetitions in as early as possible so that he can be ready in Week 1.
The balancing act that Coach Shanahan will have to perform with Griffin will be limiting his exposure to injury. Every player has a certain amount of hits they can take before breaking down. The Redskins cannot afford to lose Griffin in the preseason.
If the offensive line is able to protect Griffin well enough, Shanahan will likely give him extra snaps. But if the Bills defensive line (one of the most underrated in the NFL) gets early hits on Griffin, do not be surprised to see Shanahan put Grossman in the game.
