Andrew Luck is looking good.

Most felt that Luck was going to be a very good NFL QB ... and was closer to being ready to play well

RGIII is not only going to be a better NFL QB after a year or two - he's also a lot better fit here :D

the Redskins have a better supporting cast than Luck does in Indianapolis
I look for the Colts to not win many games this season
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

He threw a bubble screen that went 61 yards after the catch, and all the headline will read Luck's 1st pass 63 yard TD strike. :shock:

This will give RGIII time to settle in here and Tebow time to learn to play RB. Luck will be a good NFL QB but he wouldn't have fix here like RGIII will.


If they will be judge on just one pre-season game I take RGIII every time plus RGIII had a higher QB rating :D

Yeah, and that drive would have continued, too. Maybe he gets another TD? 50 more yards? Maybe throws a pick? Who knows?

Yeah, I saw his first touchdown pass, while he gets credit for the yards and the TD, most of that was YAC and a lousy defense.

I'll be more impressed if he repeats that performance against Pitt next week

Luck showed a lot of poise in the pocket. He even came under duress a couple of times and keep his poise. He even scrambled on one play. Who would have thought that Luck would run before RGIII. LOL

After one preseason game, Skins fans are happy, Colts fans are happy and after the Rams watched Bradford get beat up today - they can't be happy. The Rams need a mobile QB, but I am glad that they made the trade.

This past draft was one of the best as far as QBs are concerned. Just like back in the day when Marino, Elway and Kelly in 1983.

I would have been happy with either Luck or RG3. Both are going to be great players. I havent been more sure of anything in a while.

So for me there is no need for cautious optimism. No need to wait and see! Our time as Skins fans has come. Embrace it brothers! It may not be all smooth sailing but rest assured we are sailing to Lombardi Island. When we get there? Well we will see when we get there.

Ahhh, Lombardi island. So many memories....

Used to go there quite a bit, haven't been there in over 20 years now though! I wonder if it's changed much...?

There weren't any Browns or Eagles there when I went, I remember that much...

If Luck does great, it doesn't take away a single thing from what the Redskins and RGIII are accomplishing.

I hope Luck makes the Pro Bowl every year and hits Canton when he retires. From everything I've read he's exactly what the NFL has been a little slack on: humility, putting others first, a good clean image, etc. He works hard and has tons of talent, and he doesn't play for one of the wrong teams. What's not to like?

I didn't see the game but I've watched his highlights a few times and am very impressed. Good luck to the young man we nearly drafted.

C/ATT YDS AVG TD INT
RG3 4/6 70 11.7 1 0

Ryan Tannehill 14/21 167 8.0 1 0

Andrew Luck 10/16 188 11.8 2 0

All 3 of the top rookie QB looked good in their first game so not sure what you can really take from that though. Just want to see more good games from RG3

Looks like they needed longer looks at Tannehill and Luck than the Skins needed to see of RGIII. They both threw more passes than Griff took snaps. The Skins know what they have and what they want to see.

I don't see any real point in comparing the two. I would have been happy with either. I think Bob fits the Redskins better than Luck would have. Also, having lived in awful Indiana those people would have a hard time embracing Bob. If Luck is great it does not take anything away from Bob. Yes, I like calling him Bob because I am not cool enough to use hip nicknames.
