There's no such thing as dumbing down an offense and making the playoffs in the NFL. They killed the guy and we haven't seen the same Robert since the day of the crime. Why doesn't every NFL team dumb down the offense for mediocre QB's then.
Kap had Harbaugh who is an amazing coach. A guy who salvaged what was left of Alex Smith's career and went 8-0 before being benched to Kaep. He had Alex Smith throwing 19-20 in prime time games. He got Alex paid. RGIII's coaches did their best to destroy his career.
His passing numbers said other wise. Before the injuries and the circus he was stepping up in the pocket and making beautiful throws on the money routinely. But it hasn't happened after this.
stop looking at stats. his pocket presence was horrible , bad footwork,bad mechanics .
when they tried to turn him into a pocket passer is when he showed who he is. Roberts best season came when mike and kyle shanahan constructed their version of offense that included spread concepts that he ran at baylor. when they tried to switch to a more traditional offense is when he stoppped making plays...
from shanahan where he had his most success". If you take a QB like that you must run the kind of system that allows them to be successful," Shanahan said. "I really believe Robert thought he was more of a drop-back quarterback"
stop making excuses. hes never was a good pocket passing qb. he had to run a gimmicky offense for success and it wasnt going to last. his athleticism was what made him a threat but the way he took hits he was bound to get injured. which is why when they tried to turn him into a pocket passer that is just not his game.
keep on believing that him going somewhere else is going to fix him or that its on his coaching. ill be here to say i told you so....
