Joe Theismann: Robert Griffin III “The Focal Point And The Central Point’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 2, 2014 – 2:30 pm

While I was wasting three hours visiting four grocery stores on an unfruitful wild legume chase for black eyed-peas Wednesday, Joe Theismann was talking to ESPN’s Mike & Mike about the Redskins.

Theismann detailed the primary area of development he’d like to see from Robert Griffin III and listed his top two head coach prospects for Washington, one of which is no longer available.

[Read Theismann’s goals for RG3]

Before detailing how Griffin III can improve, Theismann asserted the Baylor product’s importance to the franchise and came out in favor of letting the quarterback sit out of last three games of 2013.

“Robert is the focal point and the central point as they go forwards. I think Mike (Shanahan) did him a favor by giving him a chance to sit him down and giving him an offseason with a new coach, probably a new system to be able to learn… They gave up a lot for him, and I think he’s going to have to go out and prove that he’s worth now, all of the picks that were given up for him and be able to do the things that he needs to do to be successful as a quarterback in the national football league.”

    RRG3 will never reach his full potential until he can get comfortable dropping back. That will never happen until the o-line improves. Remember when Patrick Ramsey was a rookie and had his sinuses cleaned just about EVERY snap?? It RUINED his career and the same will be true with RG unless the o-line is fixed. We need an o-line specialist. And Russ Grim IS the answer. Be it head coach, or o-line coach. He needs to be here. His playing and coaching careers speak for themselves. Come on Dan and give him a shot!!

    I think that the focus should be to develop TEAM Players without distractions and drama. There needs to be a “backup plan” in case RGIII does not reach his full potential or gets reinjured in 2014.

    As the saying goes…”do not put all of your eggs in one basket” and neither should this TEAM!

    fact check and the spin does stop here: As long as Dan Snyder is the owner, we will never see any success much like the two Joe Gibbs era.

    Please Bruce and Dan take a long, hard look at Ken Whisenhunt. He can provide Robert with the type of offense he can flourish in. Also, he can get Russ Grimm to come with him and fix our O-line benefiting RG3 and our running game. He has been a head coach and can manage a job as big as the Redkins Head Coach. Plus he knows what it means to be a Redskin as does Russ.

    Biggest concern would be who is going to be our DC and Special Teams Coach.

    Go get’em HTTR.

    nope! our biggest concern is Dan Snyder as the owner. As far as Robert Griffin the third, he prides himself as a running quarterback. As long as we have a running quarterback we will always have a hurt quarterback. NFL history has proven, running quarterback’s are less productive. A quarterback who sits in the pocket with high processing skills are successful quarterbacks.

    RG III needs to work on his decision making skills. I watched him sit in the pocket and go through progressions over and over until he got hit by the opposing defense. Kurt Cousins looks over the field, makes a decision, and delivers the ball!

    If you aren’t sure where to put the ball then eat it, throw it away, or move until you find what you’re looking for but don’t just stand there and get your clock cleaned!

    I like the Wisenhut, Russ Grimm combination. If they could keep Haslett as DC and being in a good Special Teams coach this team could come together quickly and gel nicely.

    I agree that Whisenhut might would work out here. Russ Grimm would be an excellent coach to wear the burgundy and gold again. I can’t see how anyone can be with DC coach Haslet. Defense has been near the bottom of the league for many years. We need to get rid of the “used to losing” feelings!

    Redskins need O-line and D-line help. I think this will be adressed since we have the salary cap penalty coming to an end. Dan Snyder is not our problem. He is willing to spend money to bring in the best people. When Shanahan took over Snyder gave him all power. You never saw Snyder in post-game interviews or on ESPN. People keep talking about him as if he Jerry Jones.

    Okay friend, you seem to be confused. let me reemphasize: As long as Dan Snyder is the owner the Redskins will never see success. The ability to spend lots of money or to even sit in post game interviews, has no effect in the failing ability of this owner. case in point, he spent a lot of money in the past, trying to buy a Super Bowl. We have had really good coaches in the past that this owner has ran off. I guarantee you that there is such a stink with this organization that ensures no more good coaches. No good coach is going to work under this owner. In short just to mention a few, we have had Schottenheimer, the legendary himself Joe Gibbs and Shanahan. All who have come to an abrupt end. Just because one owns the team due to being filthy rich does not make him an expert. This is some of the dissension that is prevalent in this organization. My comments are based on facts, pattern and research. Again, the only chance this team has if it were sold to Joe Gibbs or to be put back into the hands of the Cooke family for that matter.

    Hey people wake up! there is a good coach that is available. As I mentioned in my last comment, Schottenheimer. Of course, he probably would not work under this owner. Schottenheimer much like Joe Gibbs can take any team whether they have a quarterback or not, and spawned success. Schottenheimer in one years time took a team full of babies, turn them around, made men out of them and was going in the right direction. However, and as the record shows, Dan Snyder canned him, and brings in Steve Spurrier the idiot. Hell!!! look what Schottenheimer did for the Chargers. He made them into a powerhouse, and was on the verge of a Super Bowl appearance. Much like Dan Snyder and the Redskins, that stupid organization fires a great coach and brings in nor Turner. What sense does that make. Did they not see the disastrous seven years, we had with that coach? And yes, the Chargers were on a decline under that coach ( Turner). If Schottenheimer were to come back to the Redskins he would ultimately elevate this team. However, there’s a few things that would have to happen. Let him the professional coach the team. The team act like men and not go over his head, this is called breaking ranks. Furthermore, the owner Dan Snyder keep his freaking hands away from the team. in other words, players should never undermine the coach and the owner as well. With this in mind and someone like Schottenheimer or himself we would see a powerhouse restored in Washington DC. I’ve been a fan since the day I was born in DC 47 years ago. I only want what is best for the team I love. I do question what Dan Snyder wants. I do apologize for improper netiquette and tone.

    I felt absolutely sick when I read this…you have got to be kidding me? There is no hating …a diehard Skins Fan for years who cannot believe how one person has “walked in” and felt it was all about Me vesus being a TEAM Player. First off, take off the one long sleeve and quit drawing attention to yourself unless you have a disability that requires you to wear it. Secondly, for all who say that I am “hating” read the article about the above Player on MSN, FOX News. The above Player is “tearing” the TEAM apart, not bringing it together. The first year that RGIII was on the Field, I too was “Fired Up”. Then came 2013 and the daily postings of RGIII on his Facebook page. The “second coming”, waiting impatiently to play”. I saw the self “glorification” and here it is. I hope that I am wrong. Time will tell the tale for RGIII and the TEAM Players in 2014.

    Never should have fired Shanahan. Any good Head Coach in his right mind will run from this organization. We might as well sign Norv Turner.

    John D, “Never should have fired Shanahan. Any good Head Coach in his right mind will run from this organization. We might as well sign Norv Turner” well said my friend, that is precisely my point. let’s be careful what we wish for, because God help us if they do hire Norv Turner or someone like him.
