It is worth noting that Luke gets beaten to death in that movie when he refuses to acknowledge his own limitations or protect himself in pursuit of victory. So maybe not the most auspicious metaphor for RGIII

But given his style of play, it may be an accurate one.

I'm his age give or take and the only way I saw that movie is because it was on Netflix streaming. Kind of a downer, you know like the redskins' defense

Them jerseys got numbers on them. You remember your number and always wear the one that has your number. Any man forgets his number spends a week on the inactive list.

These here playbooks you keep with you. Any man loses his playbook spends a week on the inactive list.

There's no playing grab-ass or fighting on the field. THIS INCLUDES YOU, DEANGELO. You got a grudge against another man, you fight him on Twitter. LIKE A MAN. Any man playing grab-ass or fighting on the field spends a week on the inactive list.

Lineman, there is no moving once you are in the set position on the line of scrimmage. Any lineman caught moving on the line of scrimmage, that's 10 yards....and you spend a week on the inactive list.

You get two helmets. Home and away. Every Sunday, you put the home one on the top... and the away one you turn in to the equipment manager. Any man turns in the wrong helmet spends a week on the inactive list.

No one'll sit on the benches with dirty pants on. Any man with dirty pants on sitting on the benches spends a week on the inactive list.

Any man don't bring back his jersey spends a week on the inactive list. Any man chop blocking spends a week on the inactive list.

You got questions, you come to me. I'm Ol' Man Shanahan, the head coach. I'm responsible for order in here. Any man don't keep order spends a week on the inactive list.

Someone tell me again how Andrew Luck is "smart" and Griffin is just "athletic" and isn't a pocket passer and throws nothing but short passes and really isn't all that good.

22 TDs, 6 turnovers, 60 rushing YPG, over 8 yards per pass attempt.

Luck is just heady. He isn't the most gifted from an athletic standpoint, but he just sees things most players *WINK* don't. Nobody works harder. He's got an incredible motor. He's just a heady, smart kid. You might beat him, but you won't outwork him. He's like a John Elway, Tom Brady, Troy Aikman type.

He does have those intangibles and things you just can't teach. He's a born leader, and you can tell he just "gets" it. You know?

RGIII, he's just a specimen, you know. Amazingly gifted with natural athletic talent. Reminds me of a young Michael Vick or, you know, Kordell Stewart in his prime. His release is not unlike Doug Williams or maybe Donovan McNabb circa 2005.

He's definitely born in the same mold as those guys. I hope he can learn from some of the better pocket passers of the past like Warren Moon and Daunte Culpepper

He certainly has the opportunity to look up to the scoreboard and see that his defense gave up 38.

I got 26 out of Dez. Should have been more if he didn't fumble once and drop that TD pass in the endzone.

Part of it is the record, if the W-L goes positive for the Redskins and Negative for the Colts, things will change. Also, Luck is taking over for Indy, a team with a ton of media exposure from the Manning era, also, the Pagano cancer thing makes a for a feel-good story, and no one wants to shiat on a rookie QB when there's a media narrative surrounding them.

Also, the Redskins were the "LOL Redskins" for a while, so it does cut back on the national exposure and coverage.

There's a lot of other stuff, but it's been covered.

/Colts fan
//Happy with Luck
///Thinks RGIII is better this year
////That may change in a few seasons

Well, that's good considering last time he had a prize rookie QB, he had Cutler and he tried to pass as much as possible and cost his team lots of potential wins.

Ha...that's funny. My CSB: I was about 13 and was listening to my new Guns 'n Roses CD and Civil War came on. My dad happened to be walking past my room and asked,"what are you listening to? That's from Cool Hand Luke. You should watch that movie sometime." Me, being a dumb kid, I wasn't interested in watching some old movie from the 60s that my dad recommended. A few months later I did finally watch it, and I had a similar reaction to you. I watched it so many times my younger brothers started picking up on it too. Now, it's commonplace for me, my dad, brothers, cousins, etc. to be trading back and forth Cool Hand Luke quotes and references.
