Redskins Vs. Saints 2012: Can RG3 Become An Elite QB?

The final post in a series breaking down the most important and interesting questions about the Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the NFL headed into the 2012 season.

He definitely has the tools to do so. The kid seems so well-prepared to handle anything that is put in his path that it's difficult to bet against him. The physical toolset is there, the built in rivalry with Luck to push him to great levels is there. The competition every day in practice should be there with the selection of Kirk Cousins (whom I wanted Dallas to draft as the successor to Romo).

The question I have is in regards to his tutor. I think Mike Shanahan is an overrated coach and Kyle Shanahan a questionable coordinator. Do they survive the next two seasons as Washington will most likely remain in the cellar of the division? What happens if Washington changes direction in a year or two; how much will that set him back? My guess is that Bob Griffin will carry the torch for many years to come.
