Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

The Heisman is an excellent indicator of something about a QB.

He will not make it to the Super Bowl and win it. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

Only thing that would have me worried about RG III is his injury from a year ago. Doesn't seemed to have bothered him much this season, but still, I'm always worried about players who are seriously hurt in college. How many of those guys go on to the NFL and have long, productive, healthy careers?

He wasn't injured last year.

I agree. With the "windup", and the spread QB aspect of his college grooming, I find Barkley the more attractive QB prospect over RGIII.

If its the whole law school thing that he's worried about, he can always get that degree later.
Let's see in how many different threads we can bring this up

In my opinion intelligence is more important than physical skills in terms of being a QB, but Griffin has both in spades.
You're nuts. Luck's floor, talent wise, is higher than most of the qbs in this draft's ceiling. While we all know there is no such thing as a sure thing, Luck looks to be as close to one as you can get. Basically, the only thing that can keep Luck from being an elite qb, aside from injury, is Andrew Luck. In my opinion, the worst case scenario for Luck, injury not included is Jeff George. Jeff George, as we all know, was perhaps the most talented qb of the modern era but his ego was bigger than his talents.

If you can choose between any and all of the qbs in this draft, you take Luck 1000 times out of 1000 chances. It's a no brainer. He may be a bust, but no one will ever blame you for taking him.

I also feel that Barkley is the more polished qb, but there's just something about RGIII that I really like. I've never been a fan of the athlete qb, but this kid seems special. I was one of the people who felt that Newton would be a bust, and he still could be, but that is looking pretty weak right now. I also didn't see the hype in Dalton, but I may have missed the boat there. That being said, Dalton went in about the right spot, if we'd have taken him in the first, it would have been a big reach, right or not.

RGIII might have a tendency to drop the ball around hip level when he throws, but his release is quick and I don't think it would be that difficult for the Shanny's to fix it. Look at work out/combine video of Aaron Rodgers, his thowing motion was a mess. A couple years worth of NFL coaching later, and he's arguably the best qb in the NFL. His release is not a reason to pass on him.

Luck is clearly out of the question and as good as he more than likely will be, I'm not in favor of going "Ricky Williams" for him

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

you guys are entirely missing the pint with RG# and Barley. Shanny and Kyle won't allow a guy like RG to prosper in this system. They would try to make hyim E;lway. Okay? it's true and ;you know it.

Maybe, maybe not. I don't believe in absolutes. What we do know though is that Shanny loves some playaction roll out passes. How good would RGIII look running them? The idea of having a running threat as well as someone who throws perhaps the prettiest deep ball in college football is at least intriguing.

I'm not exactly sure I understand what you're saying. I'm talking about having RGIII as a threat to drop a beautiful deep ball down field to Moss or Hankerson or take off and make plays with his feet. I wasn't talking about Helu or any Skins RB. As for Helu, I can't imagine how good he could be if the line play improves as well as having a legit threat to throw the ball, which is just about anyone outside of the qbs currently on the roster. Hell, he's finding lanes with Rexy.

Re: RGIII Heisman Winner

Let me focus a bit. Olay. The same coaching staff that signed Rashard Choice and cut him a week later, had Roy Helu on their roster. Mick Shanny stood in front of reporeters and said he wasn't sure if Helu could carry the load. This is also the same man that missed it on McNabb, Rex Grossman, and John Beck. I have very little confidence that if we indeed ddrafted RG32 that would let him be. you feel me? Won't happen my friend.

It's either Barkely or bust if you're a Skin fan.

Jim Plunkett. And don't be surprised if Newton or Tebow join him in the next 2-3 years.
