Possible for Griffin to Break Redskins Rookie Records?

At first it may seem absurd with the range of great Quarterbacks we've had in our history. But It's very practical when you note the scheme of the team.

While listening to my daily stupidity rant of the talking heads at ESPN, they brought up the rookie records of Redskins quarter backs. When seen it seems as if Heath Shuler owns them. Scratch that, like Tim Tebow owns them.

  • Passing yards - 2,337
  • Touchdowns in a season - 18

Honestly I don't think I'm the only one who believes RG3 can break these. Not because they are easy, and no not because he is Sonny reincarnated. I believe Griffin can break these records because of the sheer amount of times we pass in a game. At times our Pass to run ratio has been frighteningly lopsided (3-1), because of Kyle Shanahan's passing scheme.

Our last two (amazing!) quarterbacks, Rex Grossman and Donovan McNabb both surpassed 3000 yards with their supporting casts. This feat that is nearly standard in today's passing league. If McFlabb can pass for over 3000 with new AARP member Galloway, a hobbled Moss and Anthony Armstrong then I'm sure RG3 can with Fred Davis and those other guys (facepalm*).

Don't mistake this for Kool-Aid ingestion though. I expect for us to be behind in quite a few games. You know what happens when we're behind in a game? We tell Robby to throw the rock. Which is hoe Sexy Rexy and Donovan both surpassed the 3000 yrd mark, and is basically how I see Griffin inevitably having to pass it.
