RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

After years of losing seasons, wading thru QB after QB, FINALLY...

Incredible Honor for RG3 - This coming from a man who Coached the legendary John Elway!

Mike Shanahan: No one in NFL history has played at RG3′s level | ProFootballTalk
Coach Mike Shanahan was the head coach of a Broncos team that had a Hall of Fame quarterback in John Elway, and he was the offensive coordinator of a 49ers team that had two Hall of Fame quarterbacks in Joe Montana and Steve Young. But Shanahan says he has never seen anything like the quarterback he’s coaching right now.

Shanahan told reporters on Thursday that Griffin’s array of talents is unprecedented in NFL history.

He has a chance to break three NFL rookie passing records (highest passer rating, highest completion percentage and lowest interception percentage), and he also has 752 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. He’s playing the quarterback position like no one has ever played it.

Career highlights and awards
Pro Bowl (2012)
2× NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month (September 2012; November 2012)
2× NFC Offensive Player of the Week (Week 1, 2012; Week 11, 2012)
6× Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week (Week 1, 4, 6, 11, 12, 13, 2012)
59th "Perfect Game" in NFL History (November 18, 2012 vs. Philadelphia Eagles)

RG3 enters the final week of the regular season with several NFL rookie records already secured and more within reach and certainly attainable. Those records include:

*Highest passer rating, rookie, season:98.1. Current record held by Ben Roethlisberger, 2004. Griffin heads into Week 17 with a passer rating of 104.1.

*Highest completion percentage, rookie, season:66.44, Ben Roethlisberger, 2004. (196/295) Griffin's completion percentage is currently tied.

*Best touchdown pass–interception differential, rookie season:14 (20–6). Dan Marino, 1983. Griffin leads with 20 TDs and five INT (15).

*Lowest percentage of passes intercepted in rookie season: 1.98 Charlie Batch, 1998. Griffin leads with a percentage rate of 1.33 (375 attempts - five interceptions).

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

I wouldn't call RGIII's talent unprecedented. Incredible, yes. But Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton (jerk) have elite skillsets that are kinda similar in their own ways. He's probably the best QB in a draft class that may turn out better than the 1983 QB draft class! Certainly if the pistol and read-option become long-time staples in the NFL, RGIII should be the first QB thought of when remembering when those features became popular in the pros.

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

Rg3 is the only rookie voted to the pro bowl. He's won rookie of the week 7 out of the 15 weeks he's played. Lucks won it 3 times. wilson once. Given the results of the voting in those polls, I don't know how Wilson or luck could win rookie of the year over rg3.

It should be noted that redskins rookies have won the award 10 out of 16 weeks (Morris won twice and cousins once). When's the last time we've had such an impact full draft class?

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

I'm so happy RG3 is a Redskin! He's taken the NFL by a thousand storms already in his rookie year. Just imagine how great he'll be by his 5th or 6th year in the NFL.

You have to take into account RG3 is a rookie, and what RG3 has accomplished as a rookie.
And if this rookie talent (RG3) isnt unprecedented, what NFL rookie is? Or ever was?

I will go with what Shanahan has said since he witnessed first hand what "incredible" talent looks like compared to unprecedented talent as is RG3!

"Incredibly", take away his rookie status and his talent is still "Unprecedented"

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

yeah, i'd say 3 different rookies of the week is a pretty good confirmation that our FO has finally gotten its ish together. the lerib pick is still weird, but he really hasn't played.

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

Yeah but Andrew Luck is a winner and Russell Wilson is in a market where no one pays attention. If Wilson played in a major market he would be a shoe in. RG3 is all hype and he plays in a college offense #ReverseTrollGaze

It's kinda hard for me to think of Griffin's rookie season as "unprecedented" while remembering Cam Newton last season. And Luck this season. They have differences (Griffin vs. Newton: quick thinking vs. size, RG's better zip on his passes, etc.), but all the guys I mentioned have "unprecedented" talent IMO.

I think RG3's intelligence (and the Shanny's scheme and playcalling) plus his talent is behind his incredible efficiency and %'s. That might be unprecedented for a rookie.
