RGIII And The Bucs

November 26th, 2014
He likely could be had for a second-round pick says a former Redskins executive

He likely could be had for a second-round pick, says a former Redskins executive.

Yes, super-talented, 24-year old quarterback Robert Griffin, III, has been benched and many believe his days in Washington are finished.

The Buccaneers, to be kind, could use a new starting QB.

So is RGIII a potential fit for Tampa Bay?

Former Redskins and Texans general manager Charley Casserly, of NFL Network, said on WDAE-AM 620 today he believes the Redskins will look to trade RGIII. He talked about what kinds of teams might be a fit. It comes down to the coaching staff and how they want to use RGIII, he said.

Of course, the Bucs’ offensive coaching staff is a bit of a mess after Jeff Tedford was shut down with heart trouble. Who knows where the Bucs might turn for an offensive coordinator.

Casserly broke down Xs and Os on RGIII and called him a lesser Colin Kaepernick.

    RGIII is crap, Glennon is better by a rather wide margin so why acquire a QB who is worse than a guy you already have on your roster?

    Hell know! He is a head case that can’t be fixed by Jay Gruden, and you think we can fix him with Mark

  4. HawaiianBuc Says:

    No more “he used to be good”. No more “all he needs is better coaching”. No more “he had a great 3 game run”. No more “he just needs a change of scenery”. No more “he didn’t have any talent around him”. No more “he’ll provide great leadership”. No more “all we need is someone to manage the game”. No more “he’s got great athletic ability”. No more value free agents. No more potential steal. No more projects.

    No more.

    No, Thanks..

    Amen, brother.

  7. buccanAy Says:

    I wonder just what the Skins think they could get for RG? No way what I want him here, but curious as to what the value of a QB who recently cost 3 THREE 1st round picks….maybe a 5th?

  8. mike Says:

    f..k no!

  9. bucrightoff Says:

    Here’s why we shouldn’t get him: He should have torched our defense and he made us look like the 85 Bears. Vicious breakdown


  10. Tye Says:

    Why crave a proven failure… He was over hyped, over rated and over paid…

  11. billy buckaroo Says:

    This guy must be getting cash from Washington trying to help promote RG3 somewhere.

  12. Waterboy Says:

    I think a season or 2 sitting behind a veteran QB and getting completely healthy might do him some good. He’s still a talented guy but was under a whole lot of pressure to produce immediately in Washington after they gave up all of those draft picks to get him. If the Bucs can get him for a 4th rd pick I’d say go for it.

  13. warrenfb12 Says:

    No, no, nooooooo. Mccown/Glennon > RGIII. Which is sad.

    Never bought the RGIII hype, ever.

    Dude is fragile and cant play, his size/style of play does not translate well to the NFL. He is even worse since the knee injury. Doesn’t even run the same.

    He is not a good NFL QB, I wouldnt send any draft picks to the Redskins for him.

  14. Arealbucsfan Says:

    @waterboy agreed

  15. BlakeJohnson Says:

    Please. God. No.

  16. "that guy" Says:


    that was a great read. thanks for posting it.

  17. bucrightoff Says:

    You think RGIII is gonna accept being on the bench for 2 or 3 years? The guy threw his team under the bus after his horrific performance against us. Seriously click the link I provided, he was absolutely awful and blamed mostly everyone else. Pathetic leader

    He’s a malcontent and a diva. I would seriously rather bring Freeman back than let RGIII anywhere near this team.

  18. ChargedCBH Says:

    Hey Joe, I live here in DC. You don’t want RGIII, just draft Mariotta. You get the same QB style without ALL the injuries and ego. BTW Glennon sucks, Glennon is NOT better than RGIII.

  19. pick6 Says:

    coach killer. these super talented scramblers who are injury prone and lack fundamentals (i.e. not guys like russel wilson or aaron rodgers, but guys like RG3 & vick) always cause divides within the locker room and fan base, with half the people blaming the coach for holding back the guy’s talent while the other half realize the player’s game must evolve. jay gruden knows how this movie ends if RG3 stays on the washington roster and is walking away as fast as he can.

  20. Todd Says:

    No no no draft Winston rg3 has the knees of a 75 year old man!! Ditch mccown draft winston let Glennon back up the end do this lovie!

  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Redskins are about as pathetic as the Bucs, maybe more so. Talk about personnel changes, that woeful team changes pieces as much as a chameleon changes color. RG3 as a Buc? Scary and not in a good way.

  22. BoJim Says:

    Glennon IS better the RGme. Glennon can throw from the pocket. Guess who can’t?

  23. tgregs Says:

    So much for all of you that think drafting a “franchise QB” is so easy and will turn a team around. Beckles did an excellent analysis yesterday with plenty of examples to show the fallacy. How is Cam as a “Franchise” this year.

    The RGIII debacle has set the Skins back many years

  24. Espo Says:

    About time we all agree on something!

  25. ihateloviesmith Says:

    mariota, petty, Winston, or best available QB at the time of their pick. any thing less and I will personally rip lovie smiths lips off his stupid, non coaching ,unemotional, inept, lackadaisical, poor evaluating, slow talking, dimwitted, non adjustment, prideful, stubborn, I loves me some Mcclown, looking face!!!!!!! oh yea do not have a nice holiday lovie. I sure wish we had the general back at least he had a pair.

  26. passthebuc` Says:

    It would be a great idea.

    It would then cement what everyone already knows. In the deal making process the Buc’s are suckers.

  27. bucs4lyfe Says:

    you were just on a couple weeks ago talking about how bad RGIII is and how he was the reason the bucs won not our defense and now your asking if we should bring in a josh freeman with an ego and big mouth, they have to be related so what if one wont shut up and the other just mumbles and studders

  28. passthebuc` Says:

    With good coaching, Glennon could be one of the top 10 QB’s in the league.

    From a movie quote.

    “everyone wants to go to the party, Nobody wants to clean up”

  29. Nybucsfan Says:

    He stinks

  30. Howard Cosell Says:

    He’s perfect for the dumpster-diving Bucs.
    Maybe his name recognition can sell a handful
    of tickets to the local idiots? That’s all we care about, right?

  31. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I do not want a running QB!!! I’d like a QB who could run however. It’s the difference between Colin Kaepernik, perhaps the best runner of all QB’s and Aaron Rodgers who IS the best QB who can also move.

    And Rodgers does it very efficiently and safely. He is incredibly graceful and deceptively quick and speedy and he picks his spots brilliantly.

    I think Russell Wilson is similar to Rodgers but he can’t throw it as well. I’d take either as our starting QB however.

    Reposted from earlier today

    Things I learned when looking up other things, and
    not quite totally off-topic:

    In their first 19 games in the NFL: ( I hope all my math is OK)
    Flacco: 20 TDs, 14 INTs
    Rivers: 27 TDs, 13 INTs (His 3rd year, 1st as starter)
    Newton: 23 TDs, 22 INTs
    Ryan: 21 TDs, 12 INTs
    Roethlisberger: 28 TDs, 13 INTs
    P. Manning: 33 TDs, 33 INTs
    Luck: 26 TDs, 19 INTs
    Rodgers: 32 TDs, 13 INTs (But this was his 4th year, 1st as starter)
    Griffin: 26 TDs, 9 INTs
    Vick: 18 TDs, 10 INTs

    A certain backup QB on a terrible team: 29 TDs, 15 INTs (18.5 games)


    All of you haters, please post logical arguments.
    TDs help to win games.
    Turnovers help to lose them.
    Whether you have “IT” or not.

    RG111 told a joke to his receivers, but it went over their heads…… But seriously folks.

  35. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’d rather trade for Johnny Football and reunite him with Mike Evans. The kid will be good when he gets a shot

  36. Brandon Says:

    RGIII Sucks right now, but he can be rebuilt. He still has the tools that made him special but perhaps a new situation, new expectations, could really help them out. A lot of QBs have resurfaced after fizzling out with their first teams, many have won Super Bowls.

    There are other young QBs that will also be available, RGIII isn’t as of now but these guys will be.

    Jake Locker (extremely athletic, productive last season, injury prone)
    Christian Ponder (athletic checkdown artist)
    Blaine Gabbert (has the tools but has never gotten it)
    Mark Sanchez (pretty good tools, a few decent years in NY, not a potential franchise QB)
    Brian Hoyer (as of right now he is a free agent, very gutsy game managing winner)
    Ryan Mallett (Glennon-like but with an actual cannon)
    Colt McCoy (mobile and accurate, showed serious moxie his first season in Cleveland)
    Geno Smith (may be getting cut, has been a disaster thus far but has good tools)

    and no, I didn’t include Michael Vick nor Jimmy Clausen. One’s old and not good anymore, and the other’s just never been good.

    @passthebuc, tickrdr

    Both of you are smoking crack on Sundays. Josh mccown is garbage and so is Glennon. Good coaching? Head coaches don’t teach quarterbacks how to throw accurately, already when mccown throws the ball is actually where it’s supposed to be. Good coaching doesn’t teach you to be calm under pressure is a talent and this line is so horrible. Bucs are 5 games away from drafting a quarterback and Glennon is back on the bench and idiots are still talking about Glennon could be a top 10 qb? Is this your advice is that what you see. Damn I’m so glad you have nothing to do with the roster and this team. Amazing how little people actually know about football

  38. Buxfan Says:

    I’ll take him with a 4th or 5th round. It won’t hurt at all. Lovie is a veteran coach that can handle him.
