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.

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


Not a huge surprise. Looked awful :(

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.

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.


Even more false...

The media painting of all four QBs.

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.

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.


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.
