Regardless of the personnel??? The Redskins spent a bunch of money on Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan. They also tried to get Eddie Royal as well. Even though they already had Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson on the roster. The Redskins are stacked at WR. They've also got two nice backs in Morris and Helu Jr. Morris already has 1,200 yards this year. Say what you want about RG3, he's got a lot of talent around him.
Tried to get Royal? Does that actually count in this discussion?
Please tell me what Josh Morgan has ever done. Pierre Garcon looked infinitely better with Manning throwing to him than RGIII. Hankerson? Again what has he done? Only guy with any pedigree is Moss and last year everyone was dogging on that guy as an fat slob, over-the-hill player.
They do have speed though. Not going to deny that.
With Russell Wilson, again you have Sidney Rice and Golden Tate on the roster (both 2nd round picks). While they only have two legitimate passing threats, just like us, their receivers are of a higher pedigree and are far more explosive. Both guys have seven touchdowns and are redzone threats where as Hartline and Bess are not. The Seahawks also have a 1,200 yard back in Marshaun Lynch. So while the Seahawks aren't stacked at WR, they have better WRs than we do and they definitely have a better running game.
Again, look at those players with Tavaris Jackson as compared to Wilson. Rice is the speed threat thought that we don't have.
I see what you're saying. Both of those guys are talented young quarterbacks having good seasons. But a lot of that has to do with who they have around them. In my opinion if you give Tannehill a legit rushing attack like they have, and add more wideout talent, he'll be just as productive if not more productive.
We could have a legit rushing attack .... or better than we're seeing, but our coaching staff continues to play RB carousel and finding the oddest times to get away from what is working.
I've discussed this with you before ..... but Tanny has similar athletic talents as Wilson/RGIII. Those two guys are out there opening up new passing lanes with their feet and keeping defenses honest because of the threat of their playmaking ability. We might be having an entirely different conversation if this staff actually made use of Tanny's athleticism. It was supposed to be one of the defining reasons why we drafted him in the first place.
A lot of people are concerned with not having a plethora of big play ability out there ..... but I'm more concerned with seeing him not execute the opportunities we have had. Then I could say, "well imagine if we had even more opportunities!".
