Robert Griffin III

Postby DarthMonk » Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:42 am

This man is the frickin' bomb! His is easily as athletic as ANY QB (or player, for that matter) in the NFL. For example, he sprinted 13.46 in the 110-meter hurdles and 49.56 in the 400-meter hurdles as a junior in high school. He is more accurate than most. He has a bigger arm than most. He is smarter than most. He is a very high character guy. He is a leader. If the info in the last paragraph in the report below is correct I'd talk to him as soon as it's legal and draft him anyway and support his academics for a year with a salary if he'd take it.

I've included a short highlight reel link at the end of this post.

Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

The legend of Griffin went to another level after he led Baylor to a 45-38 last second win over Oklahoma. It was the first win over the Sooners in school history. Griffin was 21-of-34 for 479 yards with four touchdowns. He showcased a huge arm, phenomenal accuracy, and leadership. Griffin has the 'it' factor where he raises the level of play of those around him. In crunch time, the junior takes his play to another level and comes through in the clutch.

A week ago, Griffin led Baylor to a 31-30 win at Kansas, completing 22-of-29 passes for 312 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He also ran for 103 yards and a touchdown. Against Missouri, Griffin completed 27-of-41 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions. Plus, he collected 64 yards and a score on the ground. Thus far in 2011, Griffin has completed 73 percent of his passes for 3,572 yards with 33 touchdowns and five interceptions. He has rushed for 550 yards and five touchdowns.

Griffin has been one of the best players in college football this season. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder is a big play machine. He has a strong arm and is extremely accurate throwing the ball. Griffin is also very intelligent and a high character individual. He has the makings of a franchise quarterback. The early hints are that Griffin is inclined to pull an Andrew Luck/Jake Locker/Matt Leinart and return to school for the 2012 season. Griffin has already graduated and is getting a masters this year. He has said he wants to do his first year of a law degree next year. That would put him in the 2013 draft, and Griffin could be a strong candidate to go at the very top.

if we want Griffin and he'd be available when we choose and he instead decides not to go into the draft, we should be able sue him! it would be utterly ridiculous and inexcusable for him to go back to school another year!!! you can do school any damn time. good grief. your window to be a pro QB and get set FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE financially in ONE signing bonus is very small.

(obviously i am being deliberately silly about suing him--- it's my way of saying i would be PISSED OFF if he does something as asinine as stay in school another year)

What....now we want to be an Option type team....???

How strong is the arm..?
Is he accurate....?
Is he fragile.....? One good lick and he's done for the season....?

I have a man crush on this guy and he would bring instant credibility to our offense. I think he is an awesome fit since the shannys love to roll out plus he has a damn good arm. Draft this guy!

Strong as if not stronger than Barkley's but that's my opinion

comp pct:

Robert Griffin III... 72.6 I'd say he's accurate, if you compare him to guys like Landry Jones (64.1), or Kirk Cousins (64.3). Then again Luck's (70.0) an Barkley's (69.1) are also sub par RGIII.

About as fragile as Cam

'course, you have to consider the context of the post... and board events at the time... to appreciate the humor. None the less... I would love to see Robert Griffin III in B&G... I think he's the real deal.

So how many first round picks to get this guy if the skins need to trade up? 3, 4, dare I say it and pull a Ditka? You simply don't win without a QB and if this guy helps them to the playoffs over the next decade, what do you think the skins should realistically give up to move up to select him? I say do whatever it takes. I'm sick of sub .500 records.
May #21 never be worn again by another Redskin but may every Redskin play like they are wearing #21 on their backs.

This franchise IS going to be a playoff contender because of a lot of factors .. NOT because of which QB we draft

We do need a good QB and I would love to see RG III in B&G

defense + the rest of the players on offense will have a lot more to do with the success of the QB (& this franchise)

having a good QB helps but we'll be a lot more consistent if the other players suit what we need to do AS A TEAM

THERE IS NO DOUBT our #1 priority is to draft a good QB ... hopefully not by giving up ANY picks



it's no coincidence that Aaron Rodgers looks so good with all the other players around him - that is a good team

Rodgers would help our franchise but we would still NOT be in the playoffs by just adding him to our group
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

RG3 will benefit from having a full off season to prepare and a better 'fit' at both HC and OC

I wouldn't mind RGIII, but prefer Barkley.
