I know this is a Rams' article, but I just have to point this out.
I'm not going to trash RG3, not even close. This guy can flat-out ball. He completed 20-of-29 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also ran for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 11 rushing attempts.
RG3 could be a star.
However, for all the hype about RG3, just look around him. The Redskins don't have a lot of talent to put around him. Think about all the complaints we hear about Bradford—poor offensive line, lack of elite receivers, etc.
RG3 is in the same boat, and because of the trade to acquire him, the Redskins don't have any first-round picks for the next two years. They're going to have to nail those second- and third-round picks. They're going to have to find some Daryl Richardsons in the late rounds.
Because RG3 has an average left tackle and average receivers. He's a good player, but as we've seen with Bradford, it's really hard on the QB when he has no time to throw and nobody to throw to.
I don't know about you, but thinking about the tough road RG3 has ahead of him, it really shines a light on the kind of powerhouse football team the Rams could build over the next couple of years.
As always, thanks for reading.
