Yeah, not a big deal. Maybe it was "blue" at Baylor and he lapsed. He's still obviously a smart guy. And I too like the "going deep" mentality, especially since he has the gun to do it.

It still amazes me how he just flicks his wrist and the ball just flies out.

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

2 Things eveyone should notice if you've seen any interviews with him...

1) People talk about the huge amount of pressure that they THINK would/should be on his shoulders because the Skins gave up so much to get him...

His whole demeanor and personality show a guy who is not going to be intimidated or pressured at all by this... you can almost hear him saying something about the fact that all 1st round QBs (or QBs period) have pressure on them every game and that he holds himself to a higher standard than anyone could put on him, etc.

2) This guy SCREAMS leader and huddle commander. Cool, calm, collected, intelligent, and extremely competitive... the same personality traits that I personally believe made a certain 6th round QB in New England a future Hall of Famer and Super Bowl champ.

The guy is a winner... period. He screams it within minutes of being around him... it's why Shanahan & Allen were willing to do whatever it took to get him.

I have ZERO doubts that he will the best quarterback the Redskins have had in 20 years.

The more see and read about Griffin, the more I think the Redskins starting QB will be Andrew Luck....
I hope not.

RG3 has poise and composure most players could only dream of. Solid guy. Looking forward to seeing him the Burgundy and Gold.

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

Robert Griffin III episode of QB camp will air at 9 p.m. ET on April 2 on ESPN btw. Also you might want to do your due diligence and watch the Luck on March 31st.

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

The guy looks the part, both physically and mentally. He was a better passer coming out of college than Newton or Vick. Can he get down the intracasies and nuances of playing QB in the NFL, like Steve Young did? That's the struggle with all QB's that are great athletes. Vick has finally done it. We'll see if RG3 can. No one will really know until he gets under center.

That is the beauty of it all - we can't lose! It is so sweet to be in a position where we are virtually assured of getting a Franchise QB.

The longer the NFL's game of FA QB musical chairs goes on, the better the Skins trade with the Rams looks to me.

You have to remember Andrew Luck is the best QB prospect since John Elway. There's plenty of reasons to love RG3 and theres no doubt we're getting a hell of a QB. However I think a lot of people are equating RG3 being more exciting than Luck to him being better.

I mean it's definitely reasonable to assume that Griffin could be just as good if not better then Luck down the line, but as of now, Luck is easily the better prospect.

Most of the hype Griffin hype I hear comes from this site or other local articles (I live in a bubble). What's it like on a more national level? Is it really looking like RGIII is moving past Luck as we get closer to the draft?

As great as Luck will probably end up being I, like a lot of others here, have convinced myself that Griffin is going to be amazing and I'll be disappointed if we don't get him.

Also keep in mind the media has been covering Luck on a national level for as many as 3 years now. I think the first time I saw him projected to go number 1 was in April 2010 after the draft.

Todd McShay's first look at the 2011 NFL Draft - ESPN

Only a third-year sophomore this fall but coach Jim Harbaugh has Luck on the fast track mechanically and mentally. Luck has prototypical size (6-foot-4, 235 pounds) and is an underrated athlete. More importantly, he has a smooth over-the-top delivery, a strong arm and great touch as a passer. Better decisions while gaining more game experience could put Luck in position to become the top player taken in the draft -- either in 2011 or 2012.
They've pretty much run out of things to say about the guy. Griffin is much easier to cover seeing as how he first really burst on the national scene mid-season when they started seriously considering Heisman candidates.

What I hear on the national level is that Luck is solidly #1. I think Redskin fans are drunk on Griffin (with some justification) so that we have a different conversation.
