Re: Griffin shows his smarts

I think, at least I hope, when it's all said and done RG3 and Luck will be the "Magic and Bird" of the NFL.

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

Fun vid to watch! He's smart and pays attention, and more importantly he didn't bristle at Steve's "I'm smarter than you attitude."

We have to put pieces around this kid and (as importantly) protect him. Hope the oline rises well beyond expectations this season. If Trent Williams gets caught with dope again I hope we cut his dumb ass pronto i.e. I hope the regime has talked some sense to that kid!

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

Also another way to think of Luck. Luck is basically Cam Newton, that is if Cam Newton had started for 3 years in a pro style offense at the top level, never got in trouble, and graduated from a top educational institution. In short he's got all the raw physical talent of Newton with none of the red flags.

Yet another way to look at it...
Luck is basically Cam Newton except he's smaller, slower, lacks the arm strength, doesn't have as clean of a throwing motion/release, oh and didn't win the big game to keep his team undefeated and didn't lead his team to a national championship.

Luck is a very good athlete in his own right, but Cam is a specimen like I've never seen.
The kid threw a jump pass for 40+ yards in the air on the money, he's thrown off his back foot for 50 yard bombs.
Cam's arm talent is on a whole other level then Luck.

I hope not.

I have been thinking this for so long and have been shocked I hadn't heard anyone say it. May I missed it, but I am so afraid of the Colts taking him from us!

Maybe Cam wasn't the best comparison. Still it doesn't change the fact, Luck has been deemed by multiple talent evaluators to be the best QB prospect since John Elway.

Also I don't know why you would hold not winning a national championship against him considering how crooked the BCS system is. I mean consider that Vince Young, Tim Tebow, and Matt Leinart also won it.

Re: Griffin shows his smarts

I think the Colts made up their mind long ago, and rightfully so. If anyone screams Peyton Manning part 2 it's Luck.

The consolation prize isn't too shabby though.

Either way we're in a win/win situation.

Good way to put it.

Or the Gretzky and Lemeiux if you will

Major points for the parallel though.

Their measurables are pretty close, I'd give the edge to Cam for his arm strength, and the edge to Luck for his decision making and overall grasp of a pro-style offense.

Well Cam Newton had a better rookie year then Elway's rookie year. Cam threw for 4,0510 yards and scored an amazing 35 TD's in his rookie year and rushed 706 yards averaging 5.6 yards a carry. Those are insane rookie numbers, better then Elway's. I guess that would make Cam Newton a better pro prospect then Elway.?.? Kidding.

I was responding to your comparison between Luck and Cam.
The rest of your post has nothing to do with me, I'm not making the points you address.
