No Burm, you are wrong here. Jeff George was the best passing QB I ever saw. He had the best arm I've seen, even better then Elway's IMO. Ryan Leaf was a also a gifted passing QB and Russell was just, well, nothing. I was never a fan of Russell so I don't even include him in this discussion but none of those guys were athletes like RG3. I don't accept that comparison because two were basically pocket QBs (although Leaf had more athletic ability then did George). I would not say that they had more upside then Luck. Luck is the best QB prospect since Elway probably but I would say that RG3 has more upside then does Luck.
Again, if I were picking, I would take Luck 100 times out of 100 but you are wrong in your assesment of these other QBs and RG3 IMO.
