RG3 not built for the NFL

Thats because Cam outweighs 90% of the defensive players trying to tackle him. When defenders see an avg QB start to scramble, their eyes get huge as they envision that huge bone jarring hit. When Cam starts to run, defensive players close their eyes and hope Cam decides to cut rather than run over them.

Um, no. NFL players do not close their eyes and hope Cam runs away, they try to hit him hard. Cam has been very good at getting down and avoiding the big hit when he gets out and runs. When he has been subjected to constant hits in the pocket (like the Raiders game), Cam has been shaken up just like any QB would.

His awareness when he runs is almost as important as his size

As offenses with this kind of quarterback evolve we will see that the threat of the run is more important than actually running it. This will allow teams to minimize the devastating hits that smaller framed athletic quarterbacks will suffer.

i will take Riv over Shanahan. I will take Cam over either one of these QB's. Bob3 is gonna have 3 years tops in this league.

I am definitely not jealous of the redskins. They mortgaged the next ten years on a QB made of glass and then keep dropping him out of 2nd story windows into rush hour traffic.

Matter of time

Vick was built like a RB and was much faster and more elusive.

Vick was much more elusive, though I think RG3 might be faster in a straight line.

But they are almost identical in size

RGIII can't survive 19 games.

Vick and RGIII are elusive yet they take brutal hits more than other players. They might escape some plays but they pay for it when they expose themselves to make plays.

Newton has been pretty good at getting down before getting hit. He's still going to get hit sometimes but he won't need to leave the pocket as much if they figure out how to protect him.

That's what dinks and donks do for a QB. What until defense figure that out next season.

So I guess the Colts have a lot to worry about too...Will Luck throw 50 ints next year or just 45?

Why is Dr Andrews on the Redskins' sideline? I know he is a famous orthopedic surgeon is he their team doctor also. If this is a dumb question forgive me.

I think he will still be in the league 10 years from now. He needs to learn to play a different style but he can do it. Guys with his body type play all over the field.

Maybe smart for a rookie and maybe for 1 year but defenses figure that stuff out quickly. Next year is the real test. I doubt RG3 comes near the same success as this year.

You aren't get 1500 yard RBs each year....once that slows he will then really be tested. He has really had it easy in games with the attention Morris forced
