Good ROY article:

The only thing I thought he had wrong, is his #2 point for Luck. He said Indy's defense " is truly bad", which it may be, but ours has been worse for much of the season, and yet Griffin has had us in position to win at least 2 other games (NYG and Rams). Seemed a weak argument to me.

They are truly bad but I thought the same way as you when he didn't mention our defense. I mean, what are we, chopped liver? YES!!! How can you talk about a bad defense and not mention ours? I think he came to the right conclusion though.

He'd probably have a few more picks, a lower completion % but more yards. That's not taking anything away from RG3, it's just that those teams play a higher risk type of offense. I think Luck leads the league in pass attempts. What I like most about RG3 is he does things that don't show up in the stat sheet and he can impact the game in more ways than one.
Most of the teams you mentioned have starting quarterbacks who very accurate with the football. Rg3 came from a high percentage bubble screen type offense at Baylor and he has played admirably. When you look at Griffin III play the first thing yo notice is that he makes all his throws count. He doesn't waste passes and this is the reason why he's able to take care of the ball. You'll never see him have 16 TDs and 20 INTs like Rex Grossman.

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

I love him with every fiber of my being so I couldn't possibly objectively rank him, nor would I want to. Number one in my friggin' heart, that's for sure. Could not be more proud of that guy.

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

RG3 is certainly the best quarterback in the NFC. Romo and Vick didn't play well this year and Eli Manning is inconsistent. RG3 towers above them all.

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

I just saw this article in Bill Simmons' Grantland site. It is from October but I thought it was hilarious what they said about the Redskins and RG3. I'm so glad we have such an excitingly good player:

"1. Redskins

Robert Griffin III, who is the most exhilarating football experience since Michael Vick emerged on the scene in 2002. And RG3's numbers blow Vick's away. Keep in mind that Griffin leads the league in completion percentage (70.8 percent) and yards per attempt (8.5) with Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan as his starting wideouts, and that doesn't even consider his value as a runner. You know how Simmons has the Tyson Zone for celebrities who are so crazy he'd believe anything he heard about them? I feel the same way about Griffin on the field. If I'm watching the Red Zone channel on Sunday and I see the "Coming up " image with a Redskins graphic, my mind races. Did RG3 just kick a 65-yard field goal? By accident? Did he go back in time and relieve Drew Storen? Is he hosting the Red Zone Channel right now? You could tell me RG3 accomplished just about anything during a game on Sunday and I'll believe it. These days, nobody in football is more watchable or entertaining."

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

It really makes me excited to think about the next 10+ years with RG3. It should be a real blast to watch his career play out. I'll be shocked if we don't win at least one SB with him.

One Super Bowl? Once Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan has thoroughly built this Redskins team, we will be the first team in NFL history to 3peat with RG3!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

RG3 is so good that he could have run the Redskins offense a year ago as a Jr. attending Baylor.

RGIII is so good he could run St. Mary's Catholic Central HS ( in Monroe MI.) playbook, and win a SB with any 10 WP members (not including me, I don't take direction well and I'm not a team player) who know what a football looks like.
