There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender.

Should the Washington Redskins consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Washington Redskins appear to be a mess at quarterback. Robert Griffin III is still very much a work in progress, a player that went from being a franchise-type QB to someone that coaches have huge doubts about.

Someone Put A Michigan State Hat On Top Of The RG3 Statue At Baylor
