Redskins fans all across the country have each asked the same question to themselves since the football season ended, who will be the next quarterback of the Burgundy and Gold? The answer isn’t as simple as most would think.
While the majority of fans believe Robert Griffin III is the answer to the problems the Redskins have had over the span of the last 20 years, there is good reasoning to speculate the opposite as well.
The asking price for Griffin is speculated to be through the roof (swap of 1st round picks this season as well as next years 1st, this years second and probably another pick), for a team such as the Redskins that have pressing needs at SEVERAL positions, a move like that could be fatal if things don’t work out.
Then again, NOT making a move like that could keep the Redskins without the signal caller they need so desperately to move forward in today’s NFL. I am a firm believer in the notion that Griffin could learn the Shanahan system in time, and would fit Shanny’s love of the bootleg, but the fact that Griffin played out of the shotgun offense exclusively in college scares me a bit to be honest.
