I know it’s so very early, there hasn’t even been a preseason game yet, but this kind of talk makes one shudder to think:
“Does [RGIII] at least look better than Rex Grossman?”, asked JP [of the Junkies].
“No”, replied [Washington Examiner reporter Rick] Snider. “Rex actually knows this thing so well, he can just pick people apart.”
“The defense has been sitting on [RGIII] everyday now for two weeks. You know each other a lot more than anyone than any is going to know you. The vets are taking great delight in beating RG here.”
“He looks like a rookie, but not the worst rookie I’ve seen.”
So there’s that. Considering Snider has covered the Skins all the way back to when Heath Shuler was a rookie, though, it’s not saying much. And, really, none of this is saying much.
It’s just silly preseason talk, like when we thought Steve Spurrier would torch the NFL thanks to a 38-7 win in Japan. Right? Right.
