Baltimore too. Flacco is nothing without Boldin.

Not only sells the Option run but also the play-action, plus RG3 has a great accuracy throwing on the run.

All those abilities forced defenses to focus on him more and left a lot of WR wide open.

If he can't scramble you take away 1 of his weapons which stops part of the defensive guessing game.
If he can't scramble??? Is his knee not better now than it was in Week 17 last year? When he scrambled for 63 yards and a TD against the Cowboys? I bet Griffin opens with the read option and runs for 30 yards just to shock the world and say "See, I'm fine".

A fine and accurate observation. He just has less talent on his roster to mask his stupidity.

Even if that horses#!% were true and he could no longer run, he still has one of the most accurate arms in the NFL. Look up last year's comp % and QB rating ranks.

1st in Yds/Att in the NFL.

3rd highest QB rating behind Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning.

3rd-best TD:INT ratio with 4:1, behind only Rodgers and Brady...Romo was 1.5:1 (horrible, ranked 25th in NFL)

4th in Comp %

88 yards was 2nd-longest completion in NFL (Freeman had a 95-yarder)

I don't get all these haters. Shannahan and Dr. Andrews have handled Griffin's injury with kid gloves. If he was not 100% back, he wouldn't be playing. Watching the videos of him warming up over the past couple of preseason games, he looks completely normal as far as mobility is concerned, and yes, his accuracy is as high as any top 10 QB in the league, playaction, read/option or just straight drop back.

Hatters gotta hat.

... and when they are Cowboys and Eagles fans they have to live in football fairyland b/c they are big-ass wusses who can't stand the cold dark reality that their teams will suck this year and for years to come.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 1 Picks

I think it is reasonable to have some small level of skepticism that Robert will come out as dynamic as last year. But I am really f*ing sick of the lack of actual knowledge about his game. He is not a running QB. He is a good passing QB. Plain and simple. And he'll get better. There's no reason to think his ability to pass the football within our offense has suffered any. There certainly could be rust issues but I sorta doubt it.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 1 Picks

I get that Griffin will have some level of rust, but some people that I know, and in the internet world seem to think that he is going to be out there limping on one leg, or incapacitated. Those are the people that I think are the hatters of the world.
