    He ran an unofficial 4.41 and 4.38 40 this morning. If that 4.38 holds up it will be the fastest ever for a QB.

    Wow, I'm a bit shocked (re: Griffin). I thought he'd run a 4.6 or something.

    He ran a 4.33 which is faster than RG3, so Vick actually would still hold the record.

    Not surprised by RG3 at all, he was a track guy before football.

    Yes he is.

    Hos usually has a good eye for talent, but the homer in him has caused a slight miss on this guy.

    Yes, I do tend to forget about track stars at QB despite their incredible success in the NFL, and tend to focus on passing ability despite its record of failure in the NFL.

    Foles career...66.9% career completion percentage, 67 TDs, 33 INTs, over 10,000 yards passing.

    No question the guy has very good accuracy.

    The TD to INT ratio isn't glowing.

    And his YPA is low compared to his excellent completion percentage which could indicate a lot of check-downs.

    But the lack of mobility is a deal-breaker for me.

    Vick didn't run at the combine, so a 4.38 from griffin would be the record. Just curious, where did you find the 4.33 number? A quick Google search said that vick ran a 4.36 at the Falcons minicamp as a rookie. That was the only time I saw

    Vick supposedly ran sub 4.3 at the VT pro day iirc.

    They quoted it on NFL network about a half hour ago, and said RG3 was second to him. Now I do agree with you, I didn't think he ran at the combine, but NFLN did quote the number and I don't know their source.

    It is interesting in that posted link it does say 4.33 at the combine underneath the 4.36 at rookie camp.

    So you'd pass on Dan Marino then?

    57.7 completion percentage, 74 TDs, 64 INTs, and 7905 passing yards in his college career. Less mobility than Foles.

    Mobility is over rated...just look at Eli Manning.

    Hmm, I know for a fact vick didn't run at the combine, but I couldn't find any of his proday numbers. I wouldn't doubt that vick ran a 4.3 something but I was just curious what he actually runs.

    As in Eli Manning is not very mobile yet he has 2 SB rings.
