Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

Yeah, I know, we all know how good Griffin is, but he's injured and never going to last in the league, blah blah blah. This thread is not about durability, as that is speculative and no one knows what the future will bring with him.

This thread is about the fact that our team, the Redskins, has an elite - not "eli" elite, or flacco/romo "elite" but a full fledged Rodgers/Manning/Brady elite - qb.

Why bring this up now? First it's the off-season, and FA has come to a sputtering slow down, trawling for the deep sea tuna that is hidden away so to say. Second, we have gone into soooo many off-seasons wondering who (or what) was going to solve our qb spot, that at least for this off-season between Griffin and Capt Kirk, Skins fans aren't dreading the man behind center. Hoorah.

But mainly this thread was brought up by a PFF article that looks at adjusted completion stats. And in it, is a defense against the people who say Griffin's stats are based on short throws (Rodgers threw 85 aimed passes behind the LOS, Brady 77, Griffin 73, and Luck 67), as well as a truly amazing (and hence Man Crush status re-certified) stat:
Quote:
10-to-19 yards

Rk-Quarterback--------Aim--Actual--Expected....+/-

1--Robert Griffin III----95---77%-------62%----14.9%
2--Matt Schaub--------119--71%-------62%----9.1%
3--Peyton Manning----147--71%-------62%----8.9%
4--Drew Brees---------149--70%-------62%----8.5%
5--Ben Roethlisberger-113--70%-------62%----8.2%
6--Matt Ryan-----------164--70%-------62%----8.1%
7--Russell Wilson-------102-70%-------62%----7.6%
8--Alex D. Smith--------42--69%-------62%----6.7%
9--Aaron Rodgers------125--69%-------62%----6.4%
10-Brandon Weeden---92---67%-------62%----5.5%

Robert Griffin III was electric in the 10-to-19 range, completing 62-of-95 passes. His aC% was easily a league-best, and well above the 62 percent NFL average.
Other numbers stand out as well but the 10-19 yd range was crazy good.

Forget the CB/S issues, forget the salary cap junk, even forget Griffin's injury status.

Griffin is electric and electrifying, and every time he stepped on the field last year, you felt like he was going to lead the team, and city, and fans to victory.

Go Skins!!!

He wasn't healthy but yet the Skins still won the NFCE.

Griffin is a smart kid & will adapt his game to avoid big hits. Look out when he is completely healthy NFCE/NFL.

Don't need your snarky comments on our Griffin love fest thread, Giants fan.

Besides in your heart you know you'd give up Eli for RG3 in a heartbeat, as would every NFL executive. So cut the crap and stay away from this thread.

- that was fun...

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

Since YOU stepped into this steaming pile yourself, here you go...

Eli Manning Rookie Year - 2004
Record as starter: 1-6, played 9 games
95/197, 48.2% completion
1043 yards passing, 115.89 yards/game
6 TDs, 9 INT[/B]
35 rushing yards, 0 TD rushing


Robert Griffin III Rookie Year - 2012
Record as starter: 9-6, played 15 games
258/393, 65.6% completion
3200 yards passing, 213.34 yards/game
20 TDs, 5 INT
815 rushing yards, 7 TDs rushing
*1 fumble for TD (Josh Morgan credited with TD)



For an extra laugh, Eli's annual INT numbers:
2004 = 6
2005 = 17
2006 = 18
2007 = 20
2008 = 10
2009 = 14
2010 = 25 WOW!
2011 = 16
2012 = 15

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

RG3 had a GREAT rookie season. He's a leader and he proved he's tough as nails. I think right now he's a GREAT play action QB and there's no need to talk about his running ability. In order for him to take the next step, he's going to have to be better on 3rd down, when the defense knows we're going to pass. And that means reading the entire field. His mechanics could be a little better too. Can he take that next step and be a great pocket passer? We'll see.
