NFL Live discusses game

Well actually, they talked about how RG struggled. There was not one mention of Cam or a comment on how Carolina snapped their losing streak....

I guess the Panthers aren't worthy of discussion unless they are firing someone or Cam is "not acting like a man"...

RG3 is being hyped up by the media because they desperately want someone to overshadow Cam. All I've heard is how intelligent & accurate he is. That he is nothing like Michael Vick. Well sorry ESPN, RG3 looked like Vick 2.0 to me.

-horrible pocket presence

-overthrew multiple times on check downs

-rarely looked downfield

-looks at his 1st option then throws check down or takes off running

-has a small body & takes some nasty hits

-o-line has to call his protection for him

I had never watched him play. Just heard all the hype. He is the next coming of Joe Montana from the way he is described. To me all I saw was a QB with poor pocket awareness who throws a check down or takes off running. Not impressed.

Washington has 0 1st rd picks until 2015. Their fans are being sucked in by fool's gold.

it was funny, the announcers kept saying he was the most accurate rookie, then he miss like 8 5 yard passes, badly.

We're 2-6... And they hate Cam! Did you really think that they would give Cam props for throwing a dime to Smitty while his thumbnail (on his throwing hand) was split in half and bleeding profusely?

Cam obviously played better, but I don't thing rg3 played as bad as his stats looked. His overthrows on check downs were all from trying to loft the ball over a jumping lineman and avoid having his passes batted down.

I think he eventually ends up pretty good. In fact I think all 5 rookie qbs starting look pretty good. Which is probably bad news for qbs looking to enter the draft, because it doesn't seem like many teams will be wanting to use a high pick on one. Arizona, KC, and maybe buffalo.

But I still take Cam over all of them.

I have to disagree here... I don't think ALL his overthrows on check downs were for that reason.

Sometimes he just plain overthrew the ball... kinda like Cam does and takes poo for it.

All I know is I wouldn't trade Cam for RG3.

Out of all the rookie QB's from the past two drafts Cam & Luck will be the only two to really succeed. And I think they will both be all-time greats.

yeah everything on ESPN today has been about the Redskins. Nothing about the Panthers. Panthers get no credit for a win. Even the titles on the topics were "Redskins" or "RG3 vs. Panthers" we will never get any love but whatever.

If that were Brady, or a manning, Matt Ryan or anyone like that, they would spend hours talking about how tough that guy is being able to play through that and make a perfect TD pass and so on forever. They won't even dare mention it since it happened to Cam
