I see Griffin in the mold of Cunningham....who in my mind is the original "Vick". Cunningham did have prototypical height too.

Griffin threw for over 4K yards and over 70% completion rate and was an accomplished passer.. Vick never sniffed those numbers.

rg3 is a great athlete who also plays football pretty well.

cam is a great football player who is abnormally athletic.

subtle differences.

both will be revolutionizing the position to an extent, but it was cam who set the bar and it will be cam to whom rg3 is always compared...just like any young QB who happens to be solid at both passing and running the ball.

So subtle that a lot of people don't seem to get them, sadly.

Why is that sad?

I think it's silly to say Griffin is a good athlete who plays football well. What does that really mean?

Newton's a better passer than either one.


No he's not Mr. Scot. Having a slighly stronger arm does not make you a better passer. GR3's accuracy is off the charts plus he has a rocket of an arm as well. I would put RG3's skills against Cam's anyday. The only thing Cam has over Griffin is size and strength. but its not like Giffin is a pipsqueak.

No RG3 will be compared to Luck while Cam will be compared to Andy Dalton.

BlackPanther's post was compared Newton to Vince Young and Donovan McNabb, not Griffin.

As far as Griffin's passing skills, he hasn't thrown a pass in the pros yet, so for good or bad, we're all going off college and projecting.

Even phenomenal college numbers don't always translate to NFL success. Just ask Colt Brennan, Timmy Chang or Tim Couch.

Every QB looks great when he's throwing against the Big XII...

I also like how shanahan wants RG3 to be in the mold of elway and not vick.

Cam Newton .............Faster than a speeding bullet More Powerful than a Locomotive . Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound........ What has RG 111 proven?

He's proven he is a great athlete.

Nobody tried to compare him to Newton until our own started to perceive Griffin discussion as slight on Newton.

That's interesting, the rumblings out of Redskins camp so far is that your wonder boy is having some trouble throwing with anticipation, and his best plays have all involved his legs.
