I'm not saying he hasn't been pretty amazing but still...
Agreed. And really, they haven't faced that many really good defenses yet. New York has one, and lost amidst all the accolades was the fact the offense turned the ball over four times in one half of that one. RGIII responsible for two of them just by himself.

There have also been long stretches of other games where the defense (usually rightfully) got thrown under the bus but the offense disappeared for long periods, the TB and StL games come to mind. Atlanta did a pretty good job keeping the Redskins off the scoreboard too and ended up taking out Griffin directly.

I agree the guy is so far an amazing player..but it's been seven games. And the Redskins have lost four of them, that's the real bottom line.
