Could RGIII have run a current NFL offense?

Postby welch » Sun Jan 13, 2019 11:53 pm

This article about Kyler Murray says that NFL coaches have adapted the offense to use the running ability of college QB's, rather than retrain QB's to run the drop-back pro offense. Could RGIII have prospered in an offense built for his skills? Should Shanahan have developed two offenses: one for RGIII and an old-fashioned one for Cousins?

Adam Kilgore calls it an evolution in the NFL QB.

No. RGIII was supposed to be the next Randall Cuniningham or Michael Vick but he had one fatal flaw: He had no concept of how to avoid a hit. There is no system in which any NFL QB can succeed if they don't know how to avoid taking hits, especially when they turn themselves into a running back. No matter what else happens the NFL is still a pocket passer's league. Look at the QB's left in this year's playoffs.

What am I missing?? Didn't the Shanny's tailor a offense to his skills as a runner? Wasn't it RGIII who didn't want to continue in that offense??

No. RGIII can't run a Madden 2019 for Xbox offense, let alone an NFL offense.

Dude just can't stay away from the hits.

And no, the debacle did not start in the Seattle game. It started some weeks earlier
when RGIII took a huge hit from a Baltimore DL whilst running. His knee just gave in. Horribly.
That should have been the end of his season.

We all know what happened later....

The Redskins biggest mistake was making the trade - HUGE mistake ... THEN ... RGIII was not prepared properly to play QB in the NFL

Mahomes was given a season to get ready under Alex Smith - huge difference ... Dan Snyder wanted RGIII to play and Mike had to start him

We all had a great time watching RGIII in 2012 but there was no way that he was going to last long playing QB like that

I doubt that he will be a starting QB despite all that athletic ability - he was not prepared properly and the Redskins are still paying the price
Until recently, Snyder & Allen have made a lot of really bad decisions - nobody with any sense believes this franchise will get better under their guidance
Snyder's W/L record = 45% (80-96) - Snyder/Allen = 41% (59-84-1)
