Don’t Worry, RGIII Is Willing To ‘Be Basic’


From this week’s MMQB column, which leads with a terrific story about Panthers coach Bruce Dehaven, comes this RGIII quote:

“[The Redskins] are asking me to be basic and take the plays that are there. If that’s what Jay wants me to do, that’s what I am going to do. It doesn’t mean you take everything out of your game. When those opportunities come up to make plays out of the pocket I will do it and not think twice about it. But if they are asking me to do the ordinary, that’s what I am going to have to do.”

I’m not sure which is worse, the reluctance or the delusion. It feels like a long season already.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    “Be basic” = “stay medium”

    Time is a flat circle.

    Doom and despair. #RedskinsFootball

    Freddie Mitchell looks at that arrogance:ability ratio with envy.
