True, if I recall you were ripped for discounting what shanny says as coach speak when it doesn't support your opinion but lauding it when it does support your opinion.

This kind of crap:

Is no different then

If you buy into shanahan's grandiose statements, as you seem to (in this case), then shanahan basically says he has everything he could ever want. Glad he isn't making excuses, but I will believe it when I see it in the win column. I am tired of big offseason talk especially from a coach who has failed miserably 2 years in a row.

I'm not buying into Shanny's comments from the 80th ceremony. You are missing the point entirely.

Saw Griff working out with the guys in the weight room on Redskins Nation. IDK why I didnt think he was able to workout until mini-camp? Either way, thought it was cool he was officially with his veteran teammates.

Maybe you're thinking about Luck? Due to the way the league rules are structured, rookies are prohibited from working out with the team, other than the rookie mini-camp, until after they're done with the college semester classes, Luck won't be able to rejoin the Colts until the second week of June. Griffin already graduated, and was only taking graduate courses.

How well do you guys think RG3 will play in his first game? Maybe struggle a bit? Put up average numbers? Wow everyone with a fantastic performance?

I was thinking about this today, because DC fans have been treated to their young superstars having early success.

Remember Stausburg's first MLB game when he struck out 14 batters?

Then you have Harper, in his first week in the Majors getting beaned intentionally and then immediately became the youngest MLB'er in decades to steal home.

Then you have John Wall doing the Dougie. Ok, nevermind...

I'm not saying there should be any extra pressure added to RG3...just pointing out that as of late, DC's young superstars have had a reputation of amazing starts. Just like Clinton Portis taking his first touch in B&G to the house, It wouldn't surprise me for RG3 to excel in week one...

I think that all really depends on how fast he picks up the playbook and gels with his receiving corps. Right now, all early indications are that he is well ahead of schedule. So, I'm going to air on the side of RGIII having a very impressive start.

We open against New Orleans. The team is in turmoil, and there is no telling when Brees will sign. If he isn't offered a lucrative, multi-year contract, then there may be an excessive holdout. With Payton sidelined for the year, as well as Vilma and their DE, this could further hurt New Orleans during their opening game.

That said, I think New Orleans is going to play with a massive chip on their shoulders and the Superdome will be very loud and raucous. They will bring the house after RGIII to rattle him. They will expect Shanny to open the game conservatively with multiple running plays and short, safe passes. If we fall into this trap, we could be in for a long day.

My hope is that Shanny has developed enough trust in RGIII to stretch the field from the opening play. Play up-tempo and drive down the field as fast as possible. This will force the defense to respect the deep pass (something they never had to worry about with Rex) and not cheat up on the line. Running lanes will open up for Hightower & Helu, and RGIII will bust a few runs in space. The crowd gets taken out of the game, and the Redskins win 30-17.

This is exactly the reason. Griffin has graduated.

It was on a redskins nation episode. They have some of those videos on redskins.com but I cant find it there either. He was just doing side lunges amongst the others. No hoopla, just working, people walking past without mics and paying him no mind. I was just glad to see he had already started in with the guys.
