  If there’s any name in football who knows about talent at the quarterback position it’s Tony Dungy. Dungy was on Dan Patrick’s radio show and elaborated on his thoughts on regarding the health of RG3. When asked by Patrick what he would do if he was Mike Shanahan, Dungy stated “You always want your big guns out there, and they want to be out there — they want to be out there to help their team…But I’m seeing a guy who is not doing the same things that he did last year. So you’re saying we’re going to change the offense, we’re going to tailor it, we’re going to keep him safe and let him throw from the pocket, he’s still a good quarterback. And he is all that. But he’s not 100 percent, and he’s not presenting the problems that he did in the past.” Then Patrick asked whether or not Kirk Cousins would give the Redskins a better chance to win or not: “I probably need one more game to determine that,…Obviously he’s gonna get better – as you said, no training camp, no preseason games. So this is like Game 3 of the preseason for him, and so he could get better. But what I’ve seen off the last two games, yes, Kirk Cousins I think running that offense the way it is now would give them a better chance.” When asked if the Redskins brought RG3 back too quickly, Dungy elaborated on his answer: “I think you had to do that,…RGIII wanted to play, he’s got medical clearance, you’re seeing it in practice, it looks like it’s there. But to me, it’s just not quite there yet, and that’s why I’d have the discussion now: Hey we’re 0-2, do we ride this thing out, or do we say you know what, maybe Kirk gives us a better chance right now. Maybe [Griffin's performance thus far is] what it is this year, and that could be what we don’t know: this is how he’s gonna be, and they’re gonna ride it out and say you know what, we designed the offense for him, this is how he’s gonna have to play this year.” Like it or not, but Dungy makes some good points. The Redskins are an emerging team, and despite their slow start they have to capitalize on the fact no one in the division is off to good starts either. Do they let the season get away from them by letting RG3 essentially use his starts as rehab or do they give the ball to Cousins? A decision has to be made. H/T: Washington Post
