Cam throws the car to the pizza joint, Wilson runs down field to block, Griff is in the car because o his knee, & Luck gets all of the credit.


False.

Luck drives because he is the smartest.

Griffin sits shotgun because he is the most popular and pampered.

Wilson sits in the backseat because he's always forgotten about an he's short.

And Cam eats all the pizza because he is selfish.

look i don't think anybody actually hates griffin or thinks he's a bad person. none of us live in a vacuum though so our perception of the guy was tinted by the endless deep throating of him by media outlets and, of course, exposure to the awful hicks who pull for the redskins in the carolinas.

outside of the injury concerns, griffin's game does have weaknesses. his accuracy is unquestionable and he hits the short and intermediate routes on a rope but he doesn't have a very good deep ball nor does he have a particularly strong arm. if you want someone who can stand in the pocket and deliver a 50 yard strike that splits two defenders and drops right into a wideout's hands, he's not your guy. that isn't a huge deal in a west coast system like the one griffin plays in but every offense wants the deep pass to be something of a threat at the very least. putting up ducks tends to lead to inopportune turnovers as we saw last night.

people get frustrated (and rightfully so) when cam launches a missile and overthrows an open receiver deep downfield by two steps but often times the alternative is much less desirable.


I noticed the same thing yesterday that Luck and RG3's long passes look like mortar shots with a high ballistic trajectory whereas Cam and Wilson's long passes look more like they were shot out of a rifle (harder throw, shallower arc).

Hate to hear it, but early word is that RG3 tore his ACL, MCL and PCL. Next season in jeopardy.

Go listen to his postgame presser. He wanted to be out there regardless of his knee. He said that he didn't believe he was hurting the team and he believed he gave them the best chance to win. He only left the field when he couldn't play anymore. He was staying on that field until he was dragged off in a bodybag. It's the mentality of a athlete. I'm sure it's easy for fat middle aged guys sitting behind a keyboard to say he should have been out but rg3 saw it differently and accountability is on him.


In other words, who is Shanny to believe? RG3? Or his lyin' eyes?

AMIRIGHT?

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.


I'll say the same thing about Russell except he's a lot shorter than Cam. But the way he was helping his team block in yesterday's game, he looks like he can take some hits and keep moving.

He is another Vick. Can't pass worth a damn and is nothing without his legs. He is also more injury prone than Vick so I don't see him lasting very long also.


CAnt pass worth a damn hmmmmm

COMP % 65.6
TDs 20
INT 5
QBR 71.4
QB Rating 102.4 (Mannings P 105.8 Rodgers 108)
Pass Yards 3200

I think he can pass the ball a little bit.

If this ends up being true, Shanahan should be fired.

Stupid, self-serving asshole.

Even more false...

One thing that ought to be clearly separated here...

Criticism of Griffin's physical durability is not equal to criticizing his skills as a player.

Dan Morgan was a phenomenal player. You could argue his skill set and his passion for football might have led him to the Hall of Fame if he's just been able to stay healthy. Unfortunately, he couldn't.

Griffin has shown that he has the skill to be a very good NFL quarterback. I just don't think his body will hold up long enough for him to have that chance.

(and obviously, I'm not alone in that thought)

Exactly.

& hopefully the early reports on his knee are wrong.

God, I can't help thinking that if Cam had said and done what RG said and did, how much the words "selfish, immature," and the phrase " me first" would have been thrown around today, especially since the team lost. Such is the life and created image of these players.
