Does RG3 Start from Day 1?


Say we do whatever it takes to trade up for RG3 and therefore have a deficit of picks this year and next. Given the glaring holes throughout our roster and our suspect O-line, Do we give RG3 the starting job from day one hoping his athletic ability makes up for our talent-deficient o-line or do we let him sit for half a year or the whole year letting him get accustomed to the speed of the game.

I realize this is just really an opinion on how you handle rookie QB's and I am just looking for where everyone stands on this. There is always the risk of throwing a rookie QB into the fire and ruining his development because of all the hits he takes. There is also the benefit of letting the rookie QB take those lumps and it allows him to grow and learn from experience. With our o-line, whoever is at QB is likely to be hit a lot. Do you believe RG3 is the type of prospect who will be able to take these hits and learn, maybe even lessen the hits because of his athletic ability? or would you rather give him time to sit and learn while we build up the rest of the team around him thinking we have our franchise QB of the future.

Personally, I think RG3 is a transcendent talent and will become an elite QB in the league. I believe he has the athletic tools and the mental ability and work ethic to reach his potential. I also believe he would benefit from being allowed to start from day one and learn on the job, much the same way Newton did this year, although I believe Carolina's o-line is way better than ours. But what are your thoughts?
