The Armchair Coach held off dissecting the victory of Robert Griffin III over Andrew Luck until the first wave of Washington Redskins roster cuts were announced today.

Why?

Well, the main reason is that the Armchair Coach felt like the whole Luck vs. Griffin story was a bunch of made up, manufactured hoopla.  The secondary reason is that the game could be better analyzed once we saw who was let go after a convincing 30-17 victory for the 'Skins. 

In a game that had to make fans of both the Redskins and the Colts happy, Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck looked poised, professional and absolutely ready to play the toughest position in the NFL.

Both teams had impressive performances from roster hopefuls on the bubble, and both teams also had a few players who simply didn't show up.

Today, we'll look at some of the consequences of the game with regard to roster cuts in Washington, and the overall preparedness of the team headed into the regular season.

This week's final preseason game will be the last opportunity for bubble players to earn a roster spot. The first team is already done with preseason action and has shifted to preparing for Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

The fact that RG3 isn't going to see another snap until then is also a factor your humble Armchair Coach would like to address.
