I watched both of those guys on the field last night, and one looked a whole lot better than the other. (Hint: the one with the 145+ QB rating)  ;)

All kidding aside though, I can understand skepticism of any highly touted rookie, but all of the early indicators seem to be that Robert is every bit as advertised. (Talking about the whole draft process through OTA's, rookie camp, training camp, etc, not just the 14 preseason plays from last night) Everyone from the writers, coaches, veterans, etc have been pretty impressed from what I gather.

We'll see how things play out when it really counts, but this doesn't feel like a bust pick to me somehow.

I've watched RGIII the last 4 years in Big 12 games. Pit him against a decent DT and he crumbles. See Miller, Von. And in the NFCE alone he has to face Demarcus Ware and Justin Tuck.

Luckily, he doesn't have to block those guys...they have 5 other dudes to take care of that.

Now, if they get through those 5 guys, I agree he is going to be in trouble. Like every other quarterback in the NFL would be...

McMetal:
Props to Russel Wilson for winning the starting QB job for Seattle. He went to the same tiny prep school in Richmond my girls attend. Always liked the guy...think he will do well, height be damned.

Redskins released Chris Cooley today...sad, but not unexpected. 6 Mil is a steep price-tag for a backup TE. I just hope he lands on his feet someplace else, preferably in the AFC. Always a fan favorite around here...

Wilson was fun to watch at Wisconsin.  Hope he can continue to shine in the big leagues.
