RG3 may be the greatest college quarterback in history. Or he's second only to Vince Young



And that's coming from a OU alumni.

that's the magic of RG3
 
2012-12-04 12:15:52 PM  
I got too sleepy to see the whole game but he is a pretty amazing athlete and really fun to watch (and I was rooting for the Giants).
 
He was really taking some severe hits though, I hope he lasts more than a season.

That was a fun game, and I like watching him, but he threw for 167 yards, and the media is acting like he just won his third consecutive Super Bowl.

Este.

176 yards, one td pass and a one point win against a Giants team that refused to cover receivers and commited a ridiculous amount of penalties.

I'm not sold. He's Michael Vick with deadlocks.

WTF? 163 yds 1TD and getting his butt saved on a redzone fumble? I'm not saying he isn't a good QB, especially for his age and experience level, but he put up Dilfer numbers last night.

Wilson beats Chicago on the road with 2 game-winning drives of 80 or more yards; Luck comes back from down 12 without the ball under 7 minutes to play against Detroit - and we're talking about RG3?

I know I'm a geek but seriously--his name is GRIFFIN. When your name is that cool, why a nickname? RG3
/MHO.
 
2012-12-04 02:38:24 PM  
RG3 is not Vick for the following reasons:

1) RG3's attitude is perfect, while Vick seemed full of himself in good times, brooding in bad (I can't see RG3 giving skins fans the double bird coming off the field). This permeates every way he interacts with his teaammates and coaches.

2) RG3 is waaaaaaaay more accurate than Vick ever was. Vick was probably just as electric a runner, and definitely gave defenses fits, but his accuracy was usually poor. RG3's accuracy is just sick.

this this & o ya

this

there is no way he can continue taking that kind of punishment & it's almost hard to watch, cause he's so talented and seems like a genuine decent kind of person.

meanwhile, every defensive player in the league wants to be THE guy who knocked out RG3

You really don't have to look that far back - it was 2010 - 21 TD, 6 INT in 12 games. He's taken an absolute beating since then.

17 tds, 4 int, 104.4 rating, 67.1 completion percent, 6 rushing TDs, just broke the QB rookie rushing record with 4 games to play, 3 consecutive victories over division opponents (two of them in the national spotlight).OMG THIS GUY SUCKS.

his 2nd meeting with the giants and even on an off night thy couldn't stop him

-Only NFL rookie to have two consecutive 4 td pass games
-Only NFL QB to ever throw 8 touchdowns in 5 days
-Holds the Rookie QB rushing record (on a team with a 1,000+ yard halfback) AND Highest Rookie QB passer rating
-currently leads the LEAGUE in Yards per throw

IF he can stay healthy (fingers crossed) and avoid any "Ron Mexico" -type Shennaigans (very little chance of that given his background) he's going to have a career that will forever after be spoken of in hushed tones by old men who will look at the hot new NFL star of the moment and tell their grandkids "that's nothing, I watched RGIII play in his prime, and you kids have NEVER seen anything like him".

He should start throwing interceptions and digging huge holes for his team and then depending on defensive tomfoolery to let him claw back at the last second. That would prove how great he is.

That's how you get to be elite in the National. Football. League.

Throw a couple picks, complete 12 out of 30 passes, watch your defense recover a fumble in the red zone, then throw a 3 yard pass on 3rd and 10 and watch your kicker bang the game-winner through the uprights. Best QB in the world.

There is nothing Wilson can do that is going to stop me wishing he was four inches taller. There is nothing RGIII can do to stop me wishing he was two inches taller.

A 6'2" guy taking the beating RGIII is taking is going to break, while a guy Rapistburger sized will last a little longer.
 
2012-12-04 03:18:13 PM  
So far as the numbers are concerned, I have to believe that everyone is dumbfounded that the rookie QB class so far is ranked as:

Griffin
Wilson
Luck
Tannehill
Weeden
Foles
Lindlay
Cousins
Osweiler

The bottom 6 are no surprise, but the top 3 are.

Exactly. If RGIII was built like Cam Newton or Ben Rapistburger I'd feel a lot better about his prospects. He's' not big enough to do what he's doing long term.

Eh, I'm not going to rank them overall; it's pointless to do 12 games into their careers. Luck, Griffin, and Wilson are all great QBs and each of their fanbases is certainly right to be excited about their future.

For that matter, Tannehill and Weeden have both been better than I expected.

Ah, a Seattle resident not familiar with how East Coast Media works.

First: Storied Franchises. All East Coast teams, with the exception of Carolina, Jacksonville, and possibly Tampa Bay, are what is considered a Storied Franchise.

Lets review.

New England: Bellichek. Tom Brady. The Team of the New Millenia.
New York Giants: Mighty warriors in the 80s, plucky playoff underdogs today. Winners. A Manning is QB.
New York Jets: The Legend of Broadway Joe. New York's Other Team.
Philadelphia: Plays in the NFC East. Jaworski QB'd there, and he is on ESPN.
Washington: Another 80s dynasty, and now RG3. The Nation's Capital.

OK stacked up against this you have:

Seattle: Whiners who lost SB 40 then blamed the fair and balanced referee when Storied Franchise Pittsburgh won. Cheaters who got a big break on Monday Night Football against Storied Franchise Green Bay, then blamed everyone for blaming them for not deserving a win. Cheaters caught juicing or using ADHD. Cheaters where Pete Carroll got a job after he was about to get caught cheating at USC. Remember them in the 80s? They had Bosworth, loved him .. he was a cheater too. Where is Seattle anyway, South Alaska? Its a shame they had to ruin the Niners (Storied Franchise) by putting them in the same division as the Cheathawks.

Now that you know the story line, the coverage will make a lot more sense.

Heroic rookie Russell Wilson coming back against the Bears (Monsters of the Midway, Storied Franchise, Original NFL Co-Founding Team) is looked upon as a fluke, or an interesting development in the Bears attempt to make the playoffs. It is not looked at as anything from Seattle's point of view, ever.

For the media to look at Seattle's point of view on anything would mean they'd have to let go of their home town boosterism for the Least Coast, they'd have to forget all they learned growing up, and they'd have to remember there are people with teams west of the Mississippi and the Rockies.

Not going to happen, not in this lifetime, not in the next lifetime.

We're stuck with these asswits calling the shots.

All we can do is stomp them on the field.

I wasn't using passer rating - more just my off-the-top-of-my-head TD-INT and completion % memory. Griffin has been fairly consistent this season, with a couple spectacular games. Wilson had a couple rough games early, but has been nearly flawless over the last 6 weeks and his stats reflect it. Luck has looked like the prototypical good-future rookie QB - he has to throw in that offense and does so pretty well, though his % and INT numbers are less than optimal - you can't argue with 8 wins either.

IF he could catch him-something that seemed to be a bit of problem for Umenyiora.
and Tuck last night, must be why they took so many late hits after his passing plays. Yes I cringe Everytime I see those hits too, but as a man who has been Incredibly large (370) Pretty Goddamn huge (285) and Getting there (250) with RGIII's height and done his fair share of sports and martial arts I can tell ou he'll be a lot less injury prone if he keeps those 20+ pounds Big Ben has on him OFF his frame. A body that has settled into a 'natural' height and wight puts a lot less stress on tendons and joints than an overmuscled or fat one and is a lot less injury prone
