Hue Jackson went 8-8 the last time he was a head coach and should have made the playoffs. He has also turned Andy Dalton into a pretty solid quarterback. Now Jackson has the pleasure to work with RG3. Jackson likes what he has seen in the former Heisman winner.
“When I looked in his eyes,” Jackson told Peter King of TheMMQB.com. “When we talked, there was a humility to him. He took ownership of what happened to him, of what he needs to work on to be good. He knows he played a big part in what happened. There are still questions to address and work to be done. He knows. In this league, you don’t always get another chance like this. Here’s one.”
Jackson feels that him getting benched for Colt McCoy, and Kirk Cousins stunted his growth.
“That probably played a huge role in what happened with his development,” said Jackson.
Jackson made it clear to King that nothing has been handed to anyone on this long-lost roster, saying: “I don’t think signing Robert says anything about what we’ll do in the draft. You never know. You can never have enough good players.”
