I've been thinking this for a while but haven't had the balls to say it honestly. In essence, RGIII is nothing like Vick except for speed. The comparisons to Steve Young are more accurate because he's not so shifty as he is fast. And just like Young he uses his feet to move the pocket versus using his feet to run for the first down.

yeah both are fast (Vick though is faster). the problem in that comparison, skillset of being fast is not comparable because one is a run-first, make plays with his feet another rarely leaves the pocket to scramble. 1 is a scrambler and 1 is a pocket passer. 2 VERY VERY DIFFERENT STYLES. This comparison is extremely poor

Holy crap. Jonathon Martin only benched 225 twenty times. That's horrible for a "top caliber" LT. Hell, I can do 225 twenty times....lol

Re: The Pro Days Thread

I'm hoping Andrew Luck's pro day tops RG3's from yesterday. Because I've seen mock drafts where it has the Colts taking Griffin III now and the Redskins drafting Luck. As we all know, RG3 had a magnificent pro day. I don't see how Luck can do any better than Griffin did. But if Luck's pro day is at least as good as Griffin's was, then he will solidify himself as the first overall pick in the draft. But if his pro day doesn't match RG3's, then the Colts will definitely take Griffin and the Redskins will draft Luck.

Trent Williams...23 times...Trent isn't a godly LT, but strength is not a big concern at all for him...

If I recall Jarvis Jenkis was even worse than that and he's our DT.

Welcome & well said, that's how I would put it.

Yeah, 17 reps...but he was destroying people in training camp.

Fleener physical presence reminds me a lot of Gronkowski. Dude just ran a 4.45 and is 6'6"

They all look so slow compared to me. I'd blow them away with my 40 time and 27 yard long bomb...
