Justin Tuck has a great deal of respect for Robert Griffin III, but thinks the Redskins offense is doomed if Griffin goes down. As the NFL moves closer to college style offenses, some of the attributes call for quarterbacks to be a little more than just passers. That also means they are exposed to big hits and could get knocked out of a game in a blink of an eye. Tucks feels the Redskins would falter if RG3 goes down, something we question since we’re big fans of Kirk Cousins the Redskins back up. However, Tuck is as much of an expert as your going to get on the subject: “I think in this offense, it is all predicated on the quarterback,” Tuck said, via Newsday’s Tom Rock. “If RG3 stays healthy, I think this offense is going to continue to roll. “But the thing about it is, who wants their franchise quarterback getting hit every play? Every game like that and I think that is what it is going to come down to.” “If they had a second RG3 to back him up, which there is none, then you can say that the shelf life of this offense is a little bit longer,” Tuck said. “If he pulls a hamstring or has an ankle injury for a couple of weeks, where do you go then?” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
