Possible Newton Backup?

26 posts in this topic

Check out this kid, Robert Griffin, out of Baylor. Would make a lot of sense as Cam's backup as the Gameplan wouldn't have to change much if he was to go down. He also could make a pretty good WR watch the play at the 6.15 mark. As of now probably is a mid to late round pick but if he keeps playing like he is he might sneak into RD 1 or 2.

Yeah he made a name for himself last year and is in the Heisman race this year. I don't think I'd use a 2nd round pick on a QB considering we have other needs.

Someone will take him early, because a team will think they can turn him into the next Cam Newton. QB with very good mobility, with a big arm.. I can see it now. Not worth the pick for a backup position.

McNabb will be the back up next season, just to get a ring. :D

I wouldn't either, I think that is where we address the DT position. I was thinking if he made it to the 4th. The kid has talent is all I can say and like I said he could make a pretty good WR as well.

No, actually, as of now, he is a first round pick, one of 4-6 qbs going to be taken in the first round this coming up year (lucky, jones, barkley, griffin, moore etc)

Probably. Something tells me he is going to have a Newton type year and go in the top 10 but I don't think he is worth that (even if we had a need). But who knows he could hit a wall and make it into day 3.

He is far more accurate of a passer than Newton was in college. And has wayyy better footwork in the pocket. AKA- he is a more polished qb.

He may go top 10 or even top 5, depending on the finish of his season and combine. Dude is flat out smart too, honors student..... (have done a lot of study on him for my radio show recently)

Kid is a stud. I think he has more TD passes this year than incompletions.....thats friggin absurd!

He's also 3-4 inches shorter and 20-30 lbs lighter. Nowhere near the prospect Newton was but he is intriguing.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
