Washington Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan said the only thing I wanted to hear about Robert Griffin III, "He's the starter, period," Shanahan stated in today's press conference following the Rookie mini-camp. Then Shanahan got into words that coaches who draft young quarterbacks always say. Developing Griffin is going to take time. Blah blah blah and yada yada yada. Shanahan is just trying to reset expectations of Redskins fans, especially those who feel that Washington is one stellar quarterback away from the Super Bowl. Stop it. Just, stop it. In Griffin, the Redskins have one high quality ingredient to the menu. The chef is still adding to the stew. I like most of Shanahan's offseason moves since his arrival, particularly his free agent additions in 2010 and his 2011 draft class. Even if he does not live up to full expectations, Griffin III is Shanahan's only correct quarterback decision. Now, coach Shanny has to prove that he has learned two things from his Redskins experience.
