I agree, but we all like our guy more. Still need too see a lot more from both of them. Luck also had two ints dropped by the Lions. It's not like you honestly say either are top five.

I've said he would be the only QB I would consider on a 1 for 1 trade for RGIII, but I would be hard pressed to make that trade. I still think that Luck may end up with a longer career than RGII. Note, I'm not saying I think he'll have a better career, just a longer one.

Luck doesn't have the luxury of having Alfred Morris to take the pressure of him. Would RGII be having the type of success he's having without any run game? Who knows. My guess is probably not because the run game alone has set up the PA ability that makes this offense go. The Colts offense depends much more on Luck to shoulder the burden as you can tell in the disparities in attempts. RGIII has 325 attempts to Luck's 503.

But part of griffins game is his playaction and run. not demeaning morris but I believe he benefits from griffins ability. and if griffin were on the colts they would still probably not throw as much. that's just a difference in their games, I don't see why that plays into the discussion.

Even Ryan Leaf ?

Many forget the forgettable Colts of last year are now 8-4 and in the playoff hunt after only one year. That being said I would slap anyone in the face with a wet mackerel before I let them trade our QB for "Suckie Luckie". ;-)

At the time of the draft I would have prefered Luck. I fully expect him to have a great career. But after seeing RG3 as a pro, the way he handles big games with such a calm, cool demeaner, the problems he causes defenses to gameplan for him because of his speed, armstrength and accuracy, I just think he is more difficult to stop. They both have great arms and Luck is a great athlete in his own right. But Griffen is much more difficult to defend because he uses all of his talents, including world class speed, much more often than Luck who primarily is used as a pocket passer as compared to Griffen who you don't know what to expect more often than not. He excells at mostly everything he does and uses all of his skills on a regular basis which makes him much harder to read. They both should have great careers I just think Griffen brings an overall talent level and new dimension to the QB position never before seen in the NFL.

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

If I look back on any draft and the subsequent first year play of ..........any rookie qb, I cannot think of anyone that has impressed more than Robert

Griffin=new age style QB

Luck=traditional pocket style QB

Griffin III has been extremely impressive. Fans of other teams want him to have a sophomore slump next season and are comparing him to Cam Newton. But how can they compare RG3 to Newton when RG3 has done more in his rookie season than Cam did in his rookie season? Nay! They are just pure haters plain and simple.

The comparison is about more than football. Cam's a self-professed diva (ok, entertainer) while Robert is a football player with character. Huge difference, IMHO, and it will play out that way over the rest of their respective careers.

Just no comparison, I can't believe we got this lucky. I mean we used to bitch about all the press the Cowgirls get, and RG3 has just wiped them off the media's horizon. Unbelievable.

Re: Where does RGIII rank?

I see Luck Vs. RGIII this way: Both teams picked the right player for what they wanted to do. Luck is perfect for the Colts and RGIII is perfect for the Skins. For that reason, the idea of trading one for the other must be unthinkable to most fans of both teams. I know it is to me.

Larry Bird as a Laker? Unthinkable! Magic Johnson as a Celtic? Unthinkable!

I think it is even more than that -- RG3, for a guy that young, is an insanely good, sincere leader. Cam is an absolutely awful leader. The fact that RG3 is already a team captain and (at least gives off the vibe that he) loves playing football with his teammates. No comparison -- dude is a boss, here's to at least a decade of RG3 with the Redskins
