If he opts to take RG3 then I'll be disappointed, but I'll also be very elated for the Redskins to land the young quarterback out of Stanford.
Seriously. Why is this even a discussion? If by chance the Colts somehow magically decide to take RG3, we should be ECSTATIC. Most of us have been DYING to get Luck for the past 2 years, and now he's our second option and a let-down? We should feel comfortable with either in our system, and rest assured we have landed a top caliber prospect at QB.

Seems that ppl have fallen in love with the idea of RG3, partly because RG3's personality seems more magnetic. He's such a marketable prospect that would light up the big stage of Washington DC with his socks alone.

He's not your typical rookie, neither is Griffin who also has a low INT ratio.

Both Griffin and Luck are no longer facing NCAA defenses. They are ready to step into the NFL where defenses are much more advanced and where defensive players are much more elite. Both of them will have their fair share of INTs. If Luck threw only 10 at Stanford last year, then he'll toss at least 15 picks as a rookie this year. RG3 only threw six picks last year at Baylor. But look for that number to climb to 12 to 14 in his rookie season. Both of these quarterbacks did an excellent job of protecting the football on the collegiate level last year. But the NFL is not the collegiate level.

True but for either of them to come in and throw 20TDs and lets say 6 Ints would be some magical stuff.

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

As talented as Luck is, he has no talent whatsoever around him...except maybe Reggie Wayne. The Colts have no running game, their o-line stinks, and so does their defense. It will be interesting to see what he is able to do with such a meh roster.

Yeah but at least Bradford had Stephen Jackson in St. Louis. Granted that he wasn't in his prime, but he is much better than any RB currently in the Colts roster. I'll be curious to see how Bradford does if he gets a #1 WR.

It sounds like Luck, if drafted by Indianapolis, will be in the same no win situation that Colt McCoy has been facing the past few years. It's a good thing that the Colts have a chance to rebuild their roster through the draft and take advantage of the fact that they can select a promising prospect early in every round of the draft. Maybe Luck can manage Sam Bradford's 7-9 rookie record.

My argument is that its a legitimate question.

And taking a pot shot at Gil Brandt's credibility? Tisk, tisk.
The man has forgotten more about football then most scouts/GMs out there he's one of the more universally respected people in scouting.

Re: Dungy being a defensive coach
I think were above being argumentative?
But, Dungy having actually played college QB himself and coaching Peyton Manning and being a former DC that actually games plan against these QBs has to count more in his favor then against it.
I didn't take a shot at Brandt's credibility, I basically said if he had outright declared RG3 the number 1 QB prospect after a workout which took place the day before Luck's it would have undermined his credibility. But he didn't do that which leaves his credibility in tact.

As for Dungy, you got me, stupid defensive guy card.

I don't know about Luck have no talent whatsover.
They've got Wayne, Collie and Donald Brown.
Their pass protection is decent they gave up fewer sacks and Football Outsider rates them 18th in pass protection rating which is middle of the pack.
I agree that their OL doesn't run block very well but then again they also didn't run the ball very much.
I think their offense suffered greatly from having Curtis Painter under center for the bulk of the season.
Dan Orlovsky isn't anyone to write home about, but there offense looked much better with Dan under center then Painter.

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

Loved our second week of free agency. We did: absolutely nothing except prep for the draft and re-open negotiations with Fletcher.

And that's a move in the right direction. No Meriweather or Cedric Griffin signings this week.
