I know this is starting to get tiring, and yet I think we're doing a good job of not ONLY talking about the golden boy, but I have another thought on RG3 that maybe hasn't been mentioned is much. I will pose this, at first, as a question:
Is RG3 working harder to achieve the success expected of him than anyone we've ever seen?
He does everything right. Off the field, on the field, everywhere. Considering the most successful QBs of this era that were equally hyped coming into the league as they are now (the Manning bros and Cam come to mind; other top-tier signal callers such as Brady, Brees and Rodgers were less heralded and took a little longer to develop and break through), only Peyton was considered a 100% sure thing. Eli has proven to be a leader, and most certainly one of the most clutch QBs we've seen, but it seemingly took him 5 or 6 years to really get it. Cam, while putting up one of the most impressive rookie seasons we've seen, still faces questions about whether he will really master an NFL offense or if teams will figure out ways to counter his freak athleticism (a la Vick).
Robert, however, has already shown, at least to the public eye and in the candid words of coaches and experts around the team, an excellent and meticulous work ethic and affinity for the Skins complex offense. Not many rookie QBs with just months learning the system are praised like that. Not only did he impress way beyond his years in rookie camp, but we have heard a lot recently about how intent he has been on staying focused on learning the offense, including the very impressive feat of having many members of the receiving core come to HIS town, random as hell Waco, TX, not to teach him the offense, but to develop with him.
Like I said, I'm sure this is getting old, but I hope you all see my point: when you have someone this dedicated, intelligent and inspiring that even his teammates want to spend their hard-earned and sparse vacation time learning and growing with him as a true unit, the possibilities truly are infinite.
Things are truly looking up for us football fans in the Nation's Capital.
