He rewrote the NFL record book...
Not Cam's fault no one wants to acknowledge he is a young QB and irregardless of how good he can be.....shouldn't have the load and expectations of an elite QB this early.
This is true but unfortunately it has exactly no bearing on Griffin's quote. Griffin didn't diss cam - he said he wanted to be compared to the best. I'll bet you 10/10 QBs in this league who aren't one of the top two or three would prefer the same thing.
Cam is a 2nd year QB who is struggling in his 2nd year (for whatever reason) after a statistically spectacular first year. I support him, I like him, I think he's the future of this franchise, I think with proper coaching and leadership he will be one of those QBs that youngsters want to be. I don't think he's earned that right now and I don't blame Griffin one bit for saying what he said.
Hell this is only even a story because the media at large has a hard-on for showing Cam in a negative light whenever possible.
