He might never venture onto this site. Let's just leave a welcome thread to our new QB. So, if he ventures here, he may be inspired like the greatest of artists. I'll start:
Robert - you have the brains, athleticism, and the overall football sense to become the ultimate sports hero of this city. I believe, ultimately, that you will be this man, but don't forget your ultimate goal. Just keep that mind-state in tact... learn what you can from the idiots in this league (of which there are many), and sharpen your mind into the ultimate NFL weapon. Let's do this.
The Shanahan doghouse, now far away from us in his mammoth estate's back yard.

They are nasty to confront but cowards at heart and will usually hide or play dead when challenged.
Plus he just says all of the right things. He told Susie Kolber (I wanted to kiss her last night, but unlike Broadway Joe, I was just ecstatic, not drunk off my ass) that he just wants to show the vets that he is ready to work. His attitude will be great for our lockerroom. Leadership from the QB position is something we have not had in a long long long time. (Though I would say Brunell displayed leadership)
RGIII - You are a breath of fresh air. Welcome to Washington. May you be the 2nd African American QB to win the SB.....soon.
Location: Austin, TX - Live Music Capitol of the World
Welcome to Washington, Mr. Griffin. Last night's draft was just another milestone on the path to a very successful life. You have our support and admiration. Stay true to yourself and your core values, and the rest will take care of itself. Avoid distractions, those who will seek to exploit you, and all of the negative influences & temptations that NFL players are exposed to. You can do great things, and your brand will be massively successful long after you hang up your cleats.
There are 4 stages of learning:
1. Unconscious incompetence: You don't know what you don't know
2. Conscious incompetence: You now know what you didn't know previously
3. Conscious competence: You know what you need to know, but you have to drilll and practice to get it right.
4. Unconscious competence: You have mastered what you need to know to the point where you don't even have to think about it.
Strive for level 4 and "Catch the Dream".

"It's the same thing I kind of went through, but he got more. He won a bowl game, won the Heisman trophy. So, it's a lot he’s got on his shoulders, but I think he's willing to work hard and he's always going to keep working on his game, watching film and I think he’s going to get better as a player."
Thank you for giving me hope. Succeeed here and you nwill never need to buy lunch again. Hell we made an a wased up qb like Shuler into a congressman, we cna make you president. Just dont hang with Fred Davis and Trent Williams in their all bean bag "Rec Room"
