Sorry man, I am impressed with Cam, but would never want to trade for him over Robert. I thought he would be a dud in the NFL, but at Auburn he had a totally stacked team. Robert had a good squad at Baylor, but they couldn't ever hang with the bigger programs like LSU, Bama, and the new Ohio State. Without RG III Baylor would have been average and maybe not even bowl bound last season.

Re: Griffin's Impact on our Offense

I exspect big things from our offense. 1st thing I think the running game will be in the top 5 of the league. The combination of RGIII, Hightower, Helu, Royster and Rainey (Yes I'm calling Chris being drafted by us) will be hard to stop. Each player brings something different.

The passing game will certaintly rely on the recievers ability to get open break the jam and seperate from the defense. Last years our guys couldn't do that. I think Cooley will be healthy and the speed on the field will hard to manage.

Whether we can beat the blitz will be the most important part. Because of how dangerous we can be- teams will bring the heat. The goal will be to hit RGIII every play whether has the ball or not. How will he respond to that? Time will tell.

He will be a universe better than Grossman was on Madden 12. OMG I got my nephew Madden 12 for Xmas and he totally kicked my ass. He has beaten me in the past, but he was always the Patriots and I would be nice and stick to the 4-3, but man this was totally different. He played me as the Lions and Grossman couldn't even get the ball off before Suh and co sacked his ass. It would be a miracle if I could just get the ball off. I couldn't run the ball either, which killed me Pretty realistic, but man Grossman was slow as molasses. With RG III, I am hoping for more air it out duels with my nephew. Those were fun. I would make JC look twice as good as Manning back in the day playing my brother.

I gave the guy credit all throughout the year. It still doesn't change what I said in regards to how he amassed 4,000 yards. It's like those Jason Campbell fans that talked about how he would end up the game with 250 yards passing, but over 1/2 of those stats always came in the last quarter when the team was down 2 or more scores. We call that garbage time/stats. Brees/Rodgers/Manning/Brady didn't get 4k yards in season from playing from behind in many of their games.


Cam Newton isn't a franchise QB yet. I even said we really won't know until year 3 what the deal is with him.

What's the hate on cam Newton for? All the kid did was bust his ass and shut up doubters and crush rookie QB records.. and to say he's not pass first? 4000 yards??

Re: Griffin's Impact on our Offense

I see our offense with RG3 almost as capable of moving the ball as any team in the NFC. Minus experience at qb , our skill postion as as talented as any team in the NFC . We may not have that C Johnson or L Fitzgerald at WR , however have 2 TE's , and 4 WR's to go along w/ Helu Royster @ RB , we should have a number of big plays . We may need Moss to stay fresh all year , or either Hankerson , Armstrong or Paul to really step up their game to make us scary . I really think OLine is the key , if we can run early and often , and even have RG3 make some 20 yd games , Shanny should be able to execute his game plan well enough to sweep the turds and iggles . Wishing J. Brown and Kory to be @ 100 % this year along with Cooley . By the way , as I looked at the rosters of the 2011 playoff teams , QB was the only skill position that stood out as far as difference in talent ?

Hell yes. CN is a mountain of a man who's size alone makes him more desirable than RGIII. Plus he's proven he can be successful in the NFL. There is absolutely no comparison between CN and RGIII.

I love Robert Griffin's skillset.
But I would trade him in an instant for Cam Newton.

No way in hell. I would take RGIII any day of the week and twice on Sundays over Cam Newton. They aren't even close to being the same level when it comes to the secondary aspects (intellect, poise, accuracy)


Also, remember that time that Vince Young won Rookie of the Year award and went to the Pro-Bowl? yeah....so let's calm down on this Cam Newton talk until a further time.

Re: Griffin's Impact on our Offense

I'll wait til I see a season of RG3 in the NFL before comparing him to last year's ROY.

Re: Griffin's Impact on our Offense

Cam is a stud and barring injury hard to imagine him regressing, but even if he takes a step back he's still a top QB and arguably the most exciting to watch.

Griffin doesn't have the body to rumble w/ the ball as Cam does. Realistically Griffin has to be a pass first QB who can burn the defense w/ his legs.

Lucky for us that's what he is.

Are you sure? That sounds like a myth to me. A quarterback who can pass and run? It'd be like having your cake and eating it too. Hoo boy just thinking about it gives me delusional fantasies. Imagine a quarterback who runs around in the backfield buying time to throw amazing spirals downfield. Goodness gracious!
