We now know that Robert Griffin III can make the Redskins offense dynamic.
Whether it is sustainable is another question.
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said as impressive as RG3 has been, the Redskins aren’t going any place he doesn’t take them.
“I think in this offense, it is all predicated on the quarterback,” Tuck said, via Newsday’s Tom Rock. “If RG3 stays healthy, I think this offense is going to continue to roll.
“But the thing about it is, who wants their franchise quarterback getting hit every play? Every game like that? I think that is what it is going to come down to.”
Griffin’s concussion earlier this year was a scare, and raised a number of questions about how much risk he should put himself at without jeopardizing bigger goals.
“If they had a second RG3 to back him up, which there is none, then you can say that the shelf life of this offense is a little bit longer,” Tuck said. “If he pulls a hamstring or has an ankle injury for a couple of weeks, where do you go then?”
For starter, to Kirk Cousins. The prospect of that apparently doesn’t intimidate Tuck.
