Its a topic comparing quarterbacks so pointing out one's sideline demeaner is valid.

Griffin has played exactly one game at the NFL level to evaluate him or his "demeanor".

Grow up and stop being a douche all the time.

I didn't mean to hurt your feelings by pointing out the obvious.

Let's not delve into feelings. You are who you are. I stated my view, deal with it.

Why can't we be happy for both these young men. They are minorities in a world that tells them they have to prove themselve in order to success unlike their counterparts.We all know those who enjoy judging, marvel at RGIII and pit him against Cam.

FYI, RG is more well spoken and mature than Luck but no one seems to want to admit that...Nope, it's easy to compare him to the other black QB the media spend a last season smearing and maligning.

RG3 is smaller an runs a faster 40, but so far I haven't seem him run like Cam does... he's not nearly as elusive and agile. I also haven't seen RG3 be nearly as accurate on deep throws.

It's funny, the most common argument I've seen made for RG3 over Cam is that "he doesn't pout". That's the weakest argument I've ever seen made for an athlete over another in my life.

Myself, I like RG3. Seems like a good guy, did what was asked of him and did it well, couldn't have asked for much more.

I agree with the previous statement that there's no reason to compare them, they're different styles of QBs with different supporting casts (for those that like to use the pitiful "well RG3 got the win" argument). Obviously if I had to choose I'm taking my guy and Redskins fans are taking their guy. No one is going to convince anyone otherwise. I like RG3 and will be hoping for his success 16 out of 17 weeks this year.

I really like RGIII. I wish him all the best. It's a sad shame how insecure this society is that there can only be ONE good black QB in this time and age. At one point we keep saying that it's not about race but we keep comparing the two black QBs and elevating one over the other.

It's funny, the media is doing their best to paint the image that Luck is the next Peyton and is HOF bound based on nothing more than college stats and hype. But, Cam and RGIII have to prove themselves and one win or record breaking doesn't mean anything. I'm sure if Luck had played like RGIII last Sunday every person in the sports world would be outfitting him for his HOF jacket.

But I will admit it's quite obvious the difference in media treatment between RGIII and Cam and we all know why. So, please spare me the whole he's more whatever. We all have learned by now that it's automatically assumed that if you're a white QB, you're not only assumed to be more intelligent but mature and humble than the black ones. Maybe that is why folks are busy comparing everything about RGIII to Cam, including his maturity and intelligence, instead of comparing him to Luck. We should ignore reality and stick with brainwashing.

As I stated before, RGIII comes across way more mature and intelligent than the Stanford Grad.

Forget RGIII, we should be comparing the after game press meetings held by Cam and Luck. Now there's a topic worth discussing. I will give Cam a small pass because he does have a slight stuttering disorder. What's Luck's excuse? This is the highly praised and suppose to be highly intelligent Stanford grad.

Someone lives with their head in the sand. Please go back and read what I posted and stop making it about race.

I stated reality. RGIII should be compared to Peyton and Luck and QBs of his stature, not just the black QBs because then it becomes quite obvious and it pigeon holes him.

Was anyone ever comparing Ben Rothleisberger to Aaron Rogers? How about Matthew Stafford to Sam Braford? NO...But, everyone feels the need to contantly compare every new black QB to the others and pit them against each other. Like they did with Cam and Vick and now Cam and RG III. It's extremely obvious regardless of what you say.

IMO, Cam and RG III are not only different players but playing on two completely different teams. Don't see the comparison except that they are both black. Sorry.
