That's all I was saying. He is more elusive (makes better cuts) and slides at the end much better than RGIII.

I'd go a step further and say he is ONLY a SAFER runner, not more "ellusive". RGiii looks downfield and makes throws on the run easwell. They are similar in that they extend plays vs take off ala Kap or Vic. Elusive? Na. Giants game rookie year fourth down being point in case. Breaking the rookie rushing record for a qb tells me he's one of the best in the biz when he takes off. Finding the happy medium this year was his goal and I think he is headed in the right direction.
Wilson isn't on the same level in any area imo.. he can put up less then 200, hell less then 100 yards and still win! A luxury our qbs don't have. In the ninner game I'd even venture to say he didn't impress me with any passes and could have had some easy completions he flat out missed. His one long pass, the wr had to slow way down to make a play, lucky for them he did. Rgiiis accuracy will be on display next year and he will show, imo, why this conversation is absurd. :rant/off:

We'll have to disagree then. I didn't say Wilson was a better QB, had a better arm, was more accurate, read defenses better, was faster, or anything else, but he is definitely more elusive. I saw some highlights this year where he made moves to avoid the pass rush that RGIII has never made. RGIII's speed helps him avoid a lot of tackles where Wilson has to do the same by making the defender miss.

Remember this play, when Russell Wilson screwed half the Giants D-line into the ground?

I really hope his knee gets back to that point to allow that kind of scrambling. 2012 was pretty breathtaking.
