RG3 needs time to recover, physically and mentally

(Continued)

Not having Griffin fully engaged early on killed any chance of rebuilding a cohesive offensive unit. Griffin looks slower, which would be expected, and constructing a team for the new year without the main cog present was a formula sure to fail. 

This isn’t a case where the quarterback isn’t up to the job. It’s more of a situation where Griffin is working his way – both mentally and physically – back into the player he was last year. How long that will take remains the unanswered question.

For Griffin’s sake, the Redskins better play this one right. Another serious injury would spell disaster.
