    How do you explain Matt Stafford then? He is 6'3" 232, a "pocket passer," was completely healthy in college. Yet played in only 13 games in his 1st 2 seasons, but hasn't missed a game in his last 2....

    He'll probably slump somewhat. He still looks like a budding superstar to me.

    His style of play subjects him to a greater risk of injury, but there's no knowing how his body will hold up or that injuries will be a particular problem for him. He's part of the vanguard of new-style QBs that we're going to see more of, regardless. This is how NFL QB position is evolving.

    I hate the Skins more than the next guy, but I don't mind saying RGIII is obviously the real deal. I'm looking forward to an NFCE with the Skins relevant again for the first time in a long while and consider a slumped Eagles team relatively fair compensation for that. I'm just hoping we get a chance to play you guys for the NFCE in week 17. There'd be some amazing story lines for that game.

    I'm looking for someone on the Giants, Cowboys, or Redskins to GUARANTEE a playoff birth or victory.

    Who has the guts to step up and call it?

    I would say with twin nitwits in New York: Osi and Tuck. But all they do is whine about getting respect. I am going to go with our own nitwit: DeAngelo Hall.

    So you'll take stats over Wins?

    ......and BTW the Colts blew up just about everything after last season. Coach - GM - offense/defense. Reggie Wayne and Freeney are the only two players I recognize. Not to mention their NEW head coach hasn't been with the team in weeks.

    Keep running the ball RG.... those hits won't get any easier! :D

    RG3 did it without his #1 for half the season (Garson) and without his #1 TE (Davis). Luck hasn't lost many if any of his offensive skill position players.

    And you overlook the fact that Luck has played a MUCH weaker schedule then the Skins.

    You can dis RG3 all you want. But he's changing tons of minds (media, coaches, and players) and quite possibly the game itself. We'll see in the coming years. To discount him and call him Aliki Smith 2.0 and just a joke.

    I feel the same way. RGIII is a talent and is going to be a thorn in our side for the next decade if he can stay healthy.

    Are they carving his bust for Canton already? I'll bet Jostens has already sized him for his multiple superbowl rings! Maybe he can also save us from this fiscal cliff.

    :laugh2:

    Never said any of that. But i will not discount him and call him worse then or the 2nd coming of Aliki Smith either. Love him or hate him, i don't care. Dude is a beast and if he can stay healthy he will be a game changer.

    And btw, RG3 is already in the HOF.. at least his jersey and cleats are from the MNF game against the Giants
    :D

    Robert Griffin III is on the field for practice. Did leg lifts, stretches and shuffle steps. #Redskins #RedskinsTalk

    I don't know to what extent @RGIII will participate in team drills (can't watch that) but I'm shocked by how much he's able to do.#Redskins

    Should be noted that there was no brace on the outside of his sweat pants. #RedskinsTalk #Redskins

    Thats just silly "stats over wins"

    Luck has 2 more wins over a far easier schedule to the point that it is not even worth discussing.

    The last winning team Luck played? The Patriots. And he looked terrible, Rex Grossman like in that game throwing 2 pick 6's and getting the Colts blown out of the water.

    Wins over TN (2), Jacksonville (1), Detroit (1), Buffalo (1), and getting blown out of the water by the Jets and Patriots isn't that impressive.

    If he does win OROY he would be the first QB to win it by leading the NFL in one passing category: In Luck's case that would be interceptions

    Here's some facts:

    RG3 w/ Garcon playing is 6 - 1.

    When Garcon was out with his injury RG3 went 1 - 5.

    So don't sit there and say that RG3 is "doing it" without his #1 (who's name you couldn't even spell correctly) because he only won 1 game in his absence.

    Michael Vick in his rookie year only played 8 games and finished with a passer rating of 62.7.

    RG3 has started all 13 games so far and missed a couple of quarters due to injury, he's also tied for the league lead in passer rating with Tom Brady at 104.2.

    Also, RG3 is both taller and heavier than Vick.

    It's amazing you can be wrong about everything you say in a post, good job.

    Yes.. And luck has won only 2 more games ans is in the bottm half of the Qb standings while RG3 is #1.

    And I worry not about spelling cause typing on a cell phone sucks.
