Could Robert Griffin III Become the Next Vince Young?

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIJanuary 17, 2017

The Washington Redskins have a newly minted quarterback in Robert Griffin III, who has already become the most marketed rookie in NFL history. But only time will tell whether he'll be the next Johnny Unitas or the next JaMarcus Russell. 

For all of RGIII's hype, we've only seen him play in very limited opportunities in preseason action. There's no certainty that the Baylor product will be able to save the Redskins franchise in the way that some are expecting.

His surrounding talent is modest, and his head coach has a history of mismanaging his quarterback situations (remember Mike Shanahan giving Brian Griese the nod over Bubby Brister back in Denver?). That's something to keep in mind when another rookie—Kirk Cousins—has played well in his preseason appearances. 

So, on which side of the aisle do you find yourself with RGIII?

Senior NFL Draft Lead Writer Matt Miller and I offer opposing arguments on whether RGIII can hang in the pro game long-term. Enjoy our fanciful banter in our latest video above, and feel free to fire away in the comments below.

Thanks for watching, especially if you're at work. We love it when you do that.
