They weren't mobile either. Their teams were contenders almost every year.
I could run a 4.3 at the Virginia Tech track
So Foles is now Dan Marino because of a stat sheet? :laugh2:
Ah ok I thought you were saying the opposite, anyways I actually like RG3 because of his parents background. A military man myself I know he is a well rounded kid and will be a star in the NFL.
Also some people seemed a little surprised about RG3s 40 but he was a track star so he knows how to properly start off and run a 40 moreso than the average football player.
I said he was Dan Marino II?
Does the mention of a name mean you have to assume a comparison? How sad if true.
My comments are nothing against Griffin. In fact, Dawgs0916 knows RGIII personally and can tell you that I have liked him from the word go. Had he not had a meteoric rise I would want him in this draft.
"Less mobility than Foles" is a comparison. There is no assumption on my part.
I still don't understand why they don't do these drills in pads. In what game scenario is Griffin ever going to elude a pass rusher, while scrambling around in tights and no pads?
They've all played tons of games in pads. Evaluators that need to see them do the broad jump in pads need to get off their lazy butts and watch some tape.
Plus then you gotta start policing pads, because you know they will all look for an edge.
No, it was a response to his commentary on stats.
I thought this was a forum that is free of personal attack. Are you going to continue calling me sad because of your comparison of Foles and Marino?
The combine workouts is mainly geared for the scouts to confirm or intrigue their thoughts on players based on what they have seen in game film. The workouts are just a way they can measure "football attributes" to distinguish one player from the next to help the scouting/drafting process. The interviews is what the combine is really about. Most coaches and scouts are just going through their boards and doing their due diligence to find out as much as possible so they can arrange their boards accordingly.
My god Hos... I was going to Pitt when Marino did. LOL!
So, unrelated to this discussion then I have to ask, do you miss them being an independent?
Sad is an attack?
All of this stuff is misplaced, though, because Robert Griffin can actually throw the ball, too. Over 10,000 yards passing, 78 TDs to only 17 INTs in four years.
Just because dude can run doesn't mean you have to all of a sudden dump on him. He's going to be a very good QB.
And a perfect fit in a ZBS who uses the boot leg quite often
Yeah, not sure how it went from RGIIIs incredible 40 time to Hos likes Foles as an indictment.
It went from...
RGIII's 40 time -> Hos likes Foles -> Therefore, RGIII sucks.
Yeah, NFLN has mentioned the 4.33 twice and they say he ran it at the combine, plus links say it too. But I don't remember him running in the combine either.
