Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

Maybe Torain's success here was a bit of an aberration to begin with?

I think our backfield looks pretty set with Helu and Royster, like to see Hightower back too.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

Not a Griffin thread, but at least one system grades Robert Griffin out as the best prospect in the last 15 years. As in: better coming out than Manning.

Does that mean you approve? I trust their opinion on the subject.

Every player on the packers offense was drafted. The ravens defense was almost entirely drafted. You build through the draft but you add key components through free agency. You sign under the radar guys or veterans that want to win a superbowl and are not in it for the money since they already have a lot. Signing one of the top free agents rarely works out unless they are in their mid 20's and even then it doesn't work out a lot of the time. Draft is less risky then free agency because of the money involved. Two D words that always go hand in hand Dynasty: Draft
Completely agree with everything youve said here and your post right before this one

Im completely against VJ. Hes turning 30, looking to get paid and has had off the field issues. Much rather build through the draft and sign guys that are looking to prove themselves, not just get paid. Save the big money deals for resigning players already on our team.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

I just got through watching the Alamo Bowl between Baylor and Washington. RG3 really didn't do a lot in that game. Baylor had over 500 yards rushing in that game. RG3 passed for just over 300 yards and ran for over 100 yards. He was sacked quite a bit in that game. NFL teams will undoubtedly watch film of this game to undoubtedly find ways to stop Griffin and keep him in the pocket and pressure him. Like Michael Vick before him, all Griffin III needs to do is get outside of the pocket and turn up field. With his athletic ability, he can surely beat a spy LB or throw it to an open receiver on the run. It would seem that RG3 will create a lot of unwanted problems for even the best of NFL defenses.

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

the biggest success metric from college to the pros is completion % and year over year completion % increase durnig college (unless its one of a few gimmick college passing systems).

starting at 60% and going to 73% is crazy good. his vick like speed isn't going to hurt either. and if you watch some clips, you'll see his long ball is accurate. so i don't doubt he could be great.

I don't think he's done a lot of work with small windows like he'll have in the NFL or throwing guys open, but we'll see how that goes soon enough...

so he turned in a 400 yard game and that's not much

Ley me ask you this,who did they say was the best prospect last year?Look I like the kid but you guys do this and put way to much pressure on the team and the kid.....he should be good ,I don't see why people would think he's better then Luck or Cam Newton?

Re: Griffin's impact on the off-season FA/draft

I think picking up a guy like Garcon who proved he could have his most explosive season even without Peyton last year would be nice. Hes only 25 i think and has a much longer future then VJ at a much more reasonable price.

Eric Winstrom just became Free Agent target number 1, in my eyes.

Give me Winston and Lienhart both cut today by Houston. Takes care of RT and backup QB.
