Thoughts on RGIII and Matt Cavanaugh | ESPN Redskins Blog

That's something neither Robert Griffin III, nor Kirk Cousins for that matter, has had with the Washington Redskins. Will it make a difference? I don't think they've received bad coaching, but this is also one way the Redskins have not gone, where an experienced quarterbacks coach and ex-player is now the main tutor. A quarterback must want to be coached and listen hard in order for it to work -- and this could be something where it still takes another year or two for lessons to fully be digested. Ultimately, if Griffin doesn't succeed it's on him.

The organization did not suddenly become infatuated with free agency when Dan Snyder bought the team in 1999. It's part of the team's DNA, its culture. Some pre-Snyder free agent pickups during the 1990's included defensive tackles Dana Stubblefield and Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson. The latter actually was a trade, which was the worst of both worlds. They gave Wilkinson a big contract and gave up their first- and third-round picks in the 1998 draft.

While with the Seahawks, McCloughan helped build the team that is going for its second straight title today. He worked under general manager John Schneider, who had a cup of coffee as vice president of player personnel in 2001. That was Marty Schottenheimer's year with the team. When Dan Snyder fired him after one season, Schneider was out as well, with Vinny Cerrato taking over personnel.
