Who would you choose for the next 5 years? Russel Wilson, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, or Ed from Good Burger Aka Bob Griffin

Knowing what you guys know now. Who would you choose if you could? I'm just curious what you guys pick and reasons would be. I know I'll probably get reamed for this. But oh well. In before gif approved and all that stuff. My pick? Cam still. I'm a homer but I think with the right coaching and scheme he can excel more than Luck. I think Bob will get hurt in the NFL eventually. He's too damn small.

As things are now, Cam. Mainly due to his durability once flushed from the pocket.

This will surely get a non-partisan answer from most people here....

I really wanted Luck to come out two years ago and I definitely favored him over Cam. But Cam is our QB and I will support him until he does something really stupid. His mobility and strength is what I find very unique about him.

Hopefully he can step up his accuracy. If he does that, skies the limit. That dude Bob Griffin takes a pounding. He won't last.

I would chose Cam Newton! Granted, Luck and RG III both look good and have played well. But there is more to the comparison in my opinion. In my opinion: both the Colts, especially the Colts, and Redskins have established foundations. By foundations, I mean upper management above the HC. Thats where the house is built from, you start at the top and build down to the players. We need the right General Manager. That decision and that decision alone will make or break our team.

I'd still take Cam, though I wouldn't be disappointed with any of them. To me Cam has the most upside out of any of them... He has all the physical tools you could hope to ask for, and he can make some beautiful throws when given the chance. Most of his problems this season have come from the offensive scheme we've been running and he's still shown glimpses of excellence. As far as his actual problems go, they're all very fixable simple mechanic issues like footwork... and those damn short passes sometimes. Once he gets that short-medium range accuracy down he's going to be fuging deadly.

It looks like a bright future in the NFL for quarterbacks though regardless. Should be a fun next decade and a half to watch.

His accuracy is my biggest gripe, but he's been making some amazing throws the past couple of weeks.

Still needs to work on those overthrows...'specially for ole' Smith at 5'9

A couple of years ago I wanted Luck. He didn't come out but that's fine. For the long term I'm taking Cam all day and all night.

Honestly, Andrew Luck

I think we have a damn good QB on our hands that's going to bring us loads of success, but I have a feeling Luck is gonna be Montana/Manning/Marino-esque. Indy does not deserve him.

I asked this question partially because I went to The Panthers vs Broncos game a few weeks back. Everyone there I asked seemed to wish we had Luck instead. They were Panthers fans BTW.

i would take Andrew Luck...why?

b/c he's the best QB out of those listed...he's just got it...he seems like a very good leader...he's accurate...he knows how to get it done in the clutch...what he's doing in Indy is just special

I don't like "what ifs". It is what it is...lol

We have Cam, the Colts have Luck. That's the way it will be for the next decade or so (hopefully). The best we can do is maximize Cam's potential here to outweigh Luck's advantages that we (or at least I) drooled over two years ago.

Hard to argue with that.

At the risk of throwing out hyperbole like "it's not even close", I will just simply say Cam, without hesitation. Luck has had a great rookie year. Luck's team has also benefitted from a ridiculously easy schedule (still haven't even played the Texans) and also had a huge emotional lift after Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia. Even still, the Colts are still -41 in point differential on the year (don't think this means anything in comparing teams? ask Vegas oddsmakers!). By comparison, the Panthers, with a much more difficult schedule, are only -57!

Cam also has six fewer INT's and leads the league by a wide margin in yards per attempt. As we all know, Cam is still bigger, stronger, faster.

Let's just be patient and be happy that we have our guy. A new regime will do wonders for Mr. Newton.

It's not even close (couldn't resist).

This conversation definitely comes down to Luck or Newton. Its a bit tough to say, Luck is definitely ahead of Newton in terms of understanding the position, but Cam can learn that stuff. Luck will never be able to learn what Cam can already do that Luck can't (aka the natural athleticism and intimidating physicality).

People I think make a bit too big of a deal out of being "smart" enough to play quarterback... but it's really not about being what most would consider smart. It's more of an experience factor - having an endless bag of tricks to accomplish your goals. Playing quarterback is closer to playing chess than it is to designing nuclear reactors... if that makes any sense.

Cam's only like .1 faster according to combine numbers. Just FYI. He is more shifty though. No comparison on that.

Wilson doesn't belong in the conversation.

I like Cam as much as any prospect int he past 20 years.... I do worry a little bit about his intangibles.... his character.... but I still take him over Luck and RG3 I think. All 3 should be HOF caliber guys barring injury.

Cam has the most upside. Not over yet but his rookie year has been better than these guys individualistically.

However I would take the Seahawks, Redskins and Indy's coaching and backroom staff hands down.

I'm surprised nobody has picked Bob over Cam or Luck. Based on stats this year. Seems like everybody has rode his dick as of late.
