Jay Gruden: 'Foolish' to make RGIII a pocket passer

But there is no denying Luck is better at this point, I don't if RG3 could catch up to be honest with yout

Only 2 teams left in the superbowl. Luck and RG3 play for neither. So, neither were good enough.

I think he's right, but they have to find ways to protect him when he does take off.  I just don't know if that's possible, he's kind of a small dude.  But you can't just neglect the fact he's dynamic outside the pocket.  You have to find ways to use that without killing him, though.

 

I really liked him coming out of college so I hope Gruden can figure out a way to keep him on the field and upright.

on Luck vs RG3...

 

Luck to me looks like one of the best young QBs in the league.  He does throw a lot of INTs, but he just has a knack for bringing his team back.  Objectively I think it is fair to say Luck looks like the better QB to date, but who knows what will happen in the future.

Luck does need to bring down the INT's, but it happens, and he still has a very bright future.

 

Comparisons between Luck, and Griffin right now are rather pointless. Both had immediate success, but only one is getting a new head coach in just his third season. Continuity is huge for a young QB, time will tell if Griffin can get back to where he started. He's got the talent.

Talent was never an issue.

 

The big question mark with Griffin was, and still is, durability.

How successful would you say the Panthers have been on that front?

^ why everyone here want RG3 to fail and Luck to succeed? What's the inside story on that? Am I missing something!

 

I don't see it that way. People seem to obsess over RG3 and Luck both. For or against.

 

When's the last time there was a thread about Ryan Tannehill? He threw for more yards than either Rg3 or Luck this year. He also torched the Panthers secondary.

 

The RG3 and Luck threads mostly have nothing to do with football and is more soap opera than sports.

At protecting Cam?  He's gotten down a little more this season than in the past, but Cam's so much bigger than RG3 that the risk is a little less

It's still not a good situation when your quarterback is your leading rusher, no matter how big he is.

Well, Cam wasn't our leading rusher, and if you combine Dwill and Stew's numbers, we actually had 1000 yards from our primary RB. Cam had fewer than half their carries.  We run very few designed runs, which is good.

 

If not for the struggles on the OL and our receivers getting open, the disparity in favor the RBs would have been even greater.

 

But one of Cam's greatest strengths is his athleticism and ability to break a play open.  Don't take that threat away, imo (which I don't think we intentionally did that much).
