Cam has already changed the NFL

And i'm saying that Cam or any other quarterback for that matter had nothing to do with the press/hype or over all good feelings about Robert Griffin III. He's earned the spotlight on his own. I think Panther fans have such an inferiority complex about their team its like a punch in the gut when an opposing player gets a little pat on the back. Strange

Right, Cam had to do with the lack of scrutiny RGIII received about being an athletic QB, playing in his non pro style college system, a being a one year college wonder.

RGIII's positives would have still been there....Cam's historic season caused people not to focus on certain things and question his ability to play in the NFL. Cam pretty much made everyone doing the standard athletic black QB from a non pro system doubting....look like fools. RGIII benefited....not knock on RGIII. I think RGIII should of gone 1. You are trying to spin things like people are trying to place Newton above RGIII in this talk and that isn't it

So you don't think because of the crow they had to eat because of Cam hasn't made them at least a little less likely to criticize? That being said, I agree that RG3 is a bad man.

Note I said is now a shitty franchise....which implies at one time the Skins weren't.

Lets look at both franchises since Carolina came into the league.

Carolina

3 NFC Championship appearances

1 Superbowl appearance

1 Conference title

6 playoff wins

Vs

Redskins

2 playoff wins

Redskins have become a shitty franchise. Look how they have stacked up to the lowly Panthers. LOL

Nice going, but just because Carolina has been better than Washington in recent history doen't mean they still don't occupy the same dumpster.

I don't feel it's because of Cam. Cam's successful rookie season did remove some of the VY and Jamarcus Russel negative stigma the media created around black QBs. But, I believe RG III was always a better QB than Luck. IMO, those in the media simply wanted Luck to go first. Plus RG III is part of Tom Condon's stable of clients. You're not allowed to really trash or speak ill of Tom Condon's clients in the media. No matter how bad their are.

By always better than Luck you mean always thought that during the percentage of one season?

Yeah, the history pretty much proves since Carolina entered the league....they don't occupy the same one when comparing the success of the franchises. Skins have seen virtually no success and that can't be said about Carolina in that span....

This is coming from a poster who many believe opts to look at the negative sides to Carolina....but the Skins have been a joke recently. This is former Skins country....most real Skins fans admit that

Oh please...I called it right on this site last season. I told you the media wasn't going to do to RGIII what they did to Cam because it would raise a lot of eye-brows. These folks in the media aren't stupid. Plus, they knew they were going to get the outcome they wanted between the two QBs...

It was clear from the time Cam was at Auburn that the media was going to go after him and do it extremely viciously. They wanted him to fail while he was at Auburn and he didn't. And, they felt they had a chance to affect how he came off the draftboard doing what they do best...building up a false image of someone based on bits and pieces of negative story they can spin into a much bigger story.

Cam's so called "character issues" were more fictious than reality. Whatever he did while at UF when he was 18 was shrouded in smoke and intentionally made to look worst than it was for the purpose of using it against him. When the best the media could do was take everything Cam said and did and intentionally spin it to paint him as arrogant and cocky, that was enough to show me what was really going on. The pile on was SOOOO obvious and uncall for.

Not takin anything away from RG3, the man's got talent. But I absolutely believe that if Cam had not had the season he did, then Washington wouldnt have invested as much as they did. If Cam had stunk last season, 'Skins wouldve gone a different path through the draft...

He's forbidden to work with the team until he's done with his Stanford academics.

This.

RG3 has been at OTAs for weeks now, and in the D.C. area, giving interviews and making appearances. Luck has been in hibernation until this week, for all intents and purposes.

Also don't forget market size.

No i do not. Once camp is in full swing and RG3 has a poor practice or two i expect a few negitive headlines and on-air rants.

That would be a negative ghost rider,

Cam brought some of the bad press on himself but the comparisons of him to other "black QB's" was hog wash, now that a "black QB" has taken over the league, and yes it only takes one year now for someone to have "arrived", QB's who fit that mold will have a perceptibly easier time convincing the talking heads that they are the next big thing. RG3 has absolutely earned a lot of his praise but he would have gone through what Cam did if Cam hadn't set the league on fire last year.

Of course he will face some heat then....

Only thing Cam aided was taking some of the hot air out of the media and what they began doing to black athletic QBs playing college ball in non pro systems coming out

lol Cam has nothing to do with it. If RG3 was sucking it up in camp do you think his name would be on everyones lips? No. RG3 is getting press because RG3 is a bad bad man.

You are so fugging delusional Lol!

It's OTA practices in shorts. The db's are forbidden from even bumping the receivers. The league is full of Practice All-Pros. So sad to see a Rock Hill guy with such blind homerism for a team that hasn't done sh*t for our local area.
