Luck vs rg3

Recommended Posts

Ok, I as most of you think Luck is much better than Rg3. But what im counfused about is why more people think that. Luck has throw alot more passes and completted i belive 56.3% of them. And RG3 has a 66.3% passer ratting. But rg3 has a better line imo and a lot more experinced team. And Luck(with help) took a 2-14 team to possible the playoffs. RG3 the playoffs are nearly out of reach. Hes just an exsitting player to watch dont get me wrong. Luck is better and it should be him at the way top of the rookie of the year award next should be Doug Martin truffly. Hes done a great thing for a rookie RB.

RG3 had two mediocre games and then too statistically good games. But when I guy only has to throw 15 passes and 4 are TDs, that is a luxury. This week he is going against a Giants defense that hounded Aaron Rodgers Monday night. Now, if he can do that to them I will be impressed.

I think when it is all said and done, Luck will win rookie of the year because he will have gotten his team tot he playoffs and will come on as the season goes. He is handicapped a bit by not playing a dink and dunk offense like RG3.

Dear Green,

:neener:

Love,

RGIII

I'd say that Griffin has had two poor games, seven good games, and two phenomenal games of the type that Luck has yet to match (his 400 yard performance against Miami comes awfully close, of course). Luck is certainly handicapped by being in a one-dimensional offense (something I've been saying since the first few games of the season). His numbers should be much better but you don't give guys credit for what they should be doing when it comes to these awards, you give them credit for what they are doing and right now Griffin is leading his offense to more points against tougher competition in more efficient fashion. If Luck truly is better than Griffin, then you can go ahead and blame Arians for the fact that - if the season ended today - Griffin is almost certainly the rookie of the year. There are still games left in the schedule, though, so anything can happen.

As for the Giants, we've played them already and actually spent a good portion of that game embarrassing their pass rush, so they're going to have to make some serious adjustments to us for this rematch.

As of right now RGiii has it indeed. However still plenty of time for things to change, all it would pretty much take to even everything back up is an incredibly outstanding performance by Luck and a poor performance by RGiii because in this age things flip flop every week.

I am however more impressed with Luck leading a primarily one dimensional offense with rookies, second year players and a patchwork offensive line and new offensive scheme into an offense ranked 5th in total offense. Much credit to Arians and the great Reggie Wayne as well. All 3 create a nice synergy.

This rookie class of QBs overall has been unprecedented.

Well to me when I look at the whole picture I dont see how anyone can say Luck isnt #1 for ROY. Lets make this easy, if RG3 had been drafted to the colts would we be 7-4 or better just think about it could RG3 do all the things the Colts have asked Luck to do. Think about all the things Luck has had to deal with from being on the worst team to missing training camp time in the offseason due to Stanfords quarter system to replacing Manning to playing with lots of rookies which mean less vets on the team. Remember and this is key, the Colts were the #1 pick in the draft the skins before the trade were what 8 or 9. Out of all of the Colts losses there is only one game we shouldnt of lossed and that was against the Jags but the Redskins have losses against the Rams,Bengals and panthers. RG3 still has time but its clear Luck might not have the stats but so far he has the wins and the Colts chances of making the playoffs are very strong, not to mention Luck has more wins than any other rookie in NFL history.

I wasn't expecting one of these till at least Sunday evening after Griffin throws for 16 TDs and rushes for another 8 and the usual troll comes out in his latest name. Sigh we can back on forth on this one forever and still get nowhere. Stats say Griffin is the best, Colts fans say who needs stats watch the tape, Tannehill fans say look at the sprinklers huh huh. Weedon's fan says hey we beat the Steelers, can we have another year in the NFL pretty please.

As for the OP I do think there was a little of bias though perhaps not worthy of being called a:

Luck is better and it should be him at the top for rookie of the year award next should be Doug Martin truly. He's done a great thing for a rookie RB though.

Fixed ;)

more than any rookie drafted number 1 overall big ben has most wins as rookie steelers went 15-1 that year

RGIII's and Luck's games are nothing alike. That's what makes this such an interesting discussion.

RGIII fans will ask you to look at his completion percentage and QB rating, and in fact, they are better than Luck's. But that doesn't tell you the whole story. What if I told you that there is a QB in the league right now with a 70% completion percentage and a QB rating of 104% with numbers similar to RGIII's. You might think, Rogers? Manning? Brady? No, it's Alex Smith, a guy, much like RGIII who plays in a "Safe" dink and dunk offense. Both RGIII and Alex Smith have similar numbers. Before Alex Smith went out with a concussion, they nearly the same amount of downfield throws in which both are ranked at the bottom of the league.

It's easy to have a high completion percentage when your passes don't travel too far in the air, as evidenced by both Alex Smith and RGIII. Occasionally, RGIII will air it out for a very deep pass, helping his YPA, but overall, he's a lot like Alex Smith-- a dink and dunker. Sorry but no one thinks that Alex Smith is a gun slinger. His stats and RGIII's are very similar.

First off...new guy here... *waves*

But I just wanted to comment on this based from an unbiased perspective. Looking at both play, yes, they have different offensive styles but it's kind of unfair to attempt to discredit one while raising up another. No one questions New England's pass attack, with Welker usually leading the league in completions. That being said, if you think Griffin dink and dunks all game, you haven't seen a Redskins game. His YPA can be attributed to his YAC, which shows that a QB puts the ball in the best place for a receiver to make a play.

Also, Alex Smith and Griffin's stats aren't similar. Smith has around 100 less passes, 700 less yards, 3 less touchdowns, and 1 more interception.

Honestly, I just can't wait for everyone to see Luck and Griffin as great QBs and leave it as that. They both are performing above what many thought that they would, regardless of systems and deficiencies.

Welcome to the board, we're glad to have you! And, I really am not Anti-RGIII, but I gotta call 'em as I see 'em.

Regardng the comparison between Alex Smith and RGIII, you have to go back two weeks and compare their stats at that time. Alex Smith has not played the last two weeks due to the concussion he's sustained. You'll find that they are very similar and Smith's might actually be superior up until that point.

Secondly, many RGIII supporters will state YAC as a baramoeter of how accurate RGIII is. In reality, RGIII's YAC is a function of the design of the play. Many of his YAC comes from screen passes behid the line of scrimmage to a receiver or RB, or quick slant patters off of a quick play-action fake. They are designed to generate YAC by putting the ball in the "play maker's hands" with quick and safe passes. As for his YPA-- he does throw very deep. That causes his average to go up, but he does not consistantly throw deep and intermediate routes. And Lasty, I've watched every game RGIII has played on NFL Rewind, so I'm trying my best to use numbers and informed opinions to discuss RGIII. It makes for far much better discussion.

I didn't think you were Anti-Griffin at all. Just had a lil Luck bias..lol. I'm not as much a supporter as much as I recognize someone is good. I like Russell Wilson because he is doing everything people didn't expect him to but that's another topic for another day on another website..lol. I always root for the underdog.

It's crazy because their roles have basically been flipped since coming into the league. Luck was usually the short to intermediate guy but it's what the offense calls for. I just learned not to short change anyone. The league's best offense, IMO, thrives off the YAC. Like I stated in my previous post, Welker is always in the top 3 for completions but many people don't use that as a knock against Brady, and if I'm not mistaken, the Broncos leads the league in YAC. I think that is one thing that the Colts is lacking; the short pass. The thing is, that requires good up front blocking. I swear, if you could dial up a bubble screen for Hilton...smh. That guy is crazy quick.

Now with Alex Smith, he just can't make the throws. Not a knock against him but everyone loves the downfield threat. But when you have a defense and effective running game like SF, sometimes that is all that is needed. I mean, that same type of play had them one play from the Super Bowl.

Alot of people compare RG3 to Cam. And I see alot of prople thinking RG3 runs a simple college offense with quick reads while Andrew Luck runs a more pro style complex offense. Im here to tell you the Redskins offense is far from simple. RG3 is more Aaron Rodgers than Cam Newton. I think they get compared unfortuneately because they are both Black andreally athletic QBS. Check out this breakdown of th big play RG3 made to Aldrick Robinson against Dallas it will show you that the offense is alot more complex than people think. The guys at httr24-7 do a heck of a job breaking down plays and although they are redskins fans are not biased and like I said they know there stuff when it comes to football. http://httr24-7.com/?p=3792

I've never been a huge fan of player debates like Manning/Brady, Luck/RGIII, etc, because they always turn into put one down to raise the other one up. But I will say I really like how we're handling the development of Luck MUCH more than the Redskins are handling RGIII. We're basically saying, "Screw it, be aggressive, take your lumps and learn", while the Skins are insanely protecting RGIII. I haven't watched a TON of RGIII this year, but the only time I've seen him throw it more than 5 yards downfield is when the WR is open by 15 yards (something I give him a degree of credit for because the defense has to spy him). Who knows, RGIII may end up being better, but the stat gap is purely because he's not asked to take chances, and I think the ability to take and learn from those chances is gonna make Luck progress more in his sophomore year

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
