Screw the haters. Yes I’m talking to you..if you don’t want to give RG3 the deserved credit he should get for beating the Saints last week on the road.

I’m tired of people giving him some half ass type of credit when it comes to his performance. Yes it was one game. Yes it was against a Saints defense (not to mention team) that has had it’s problems this offseason. And yes the Shanahan’s are molding their offense to RG3 strengths.

So what?

For almost a year now we’ve had to listen to the Skip Bayless types talk about how the Broncos should have put Tebow in the spread option type offense where he can succeed. No, Tebow should learn how to throw like a quarterback and then maybe folks will work around him.

We’ve seen this before. Last year folks were reluctant to give Cam Newton credit as he took his bottom dwelling Carolina Panthers to a 6 win record. I’m not saying RG3 is hall of fame worthy after one week. I’m really rooting for him to play well, win or lose, against a subpar Rams team this weekend to show people that he is for real.
