Would have been a lot better than what we got..I would have loved that draft.

It made perfect sense to me. We needed a new bell cow at RB because Jamal wasn't that guy anymore after the first knee injury. I thought Chandler could still be decent enough for a couple more years, long enough to mentor the new QB and I thought Brees was grossly underrated coming out of Purdue. He got them to the Rose Bowl crying out loud.

He made his CFL debut tonight and threw 4 interceptions in the 1st half. That folks, is the reason he can't find an NFL job, not because of his off field issues. If you're a good enough player you'll always be given a chance in sports somewhere, but bad players can't overcome bad off field issues.

:slick:

Part of his attempting to be a pocket passer was to avoid another injury though. Once defenses figured out the read option he and Kap fell apart, but I think without that torn ACL we'd be watching a totally different player.

What his reasons were, RG3 wasn't ready. The dude kept comparing himself to Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning. Like I said, he wasn't a pocket passer. It was the threat of the read-option that kept defenses off of him, at least when he wasn't running. Speaking of which, the guy refused to slide or run out of bounds. Kyle simplified the offense for him, incorporated many of the plays and concepts he ran in college, and slowly adapted him to WCO fundamentals. 

Injury or not, RG3 overestimated himself and (still) blames Mike Shanahan for problems he himself created.

Nah, he took too many hits needed to slide more. Was bound to happen.

Imagine how much things would have been different for us and the "Aints".  Lol
