Robert Griffin's Future


Recommended Posts

I really think RGIII should enter the draft now. He is obviously the 2nd best QB in the draft, and it is likely that someone is going to trade up to the 3rd pick to draft him. With his play style it's also a possibility that he could get a nasty injury, and now that Barkley and Jones are staying next year's QB class is going to be stacked with those 2 plus Tyler Bray, Tyler Wilson and Aaron Murray. Just enter it RGIII.

This. I wouldn't be opposed to him returning to Baylor so we can silence all of this talk of taking him over Luck.

this his play style injury crap is ridiculous the reason I see him going back is because he wants to be in the summer olympics and that would be tough to do while being a starting nfl qb NOW if we drafted him and he was a backup then he could or if he was in college.

The injury concern is legitimate. He had concussion(s) in college and it's always a possibility for these hybrid QB. He's only 6-2 220 which isn't nearly as big as Cam Newton (6-5 250) or Tim Tebow (6-3 236). He is more like a Michael Vick (6-0 215). Mind you, I believe that Robert Griffin will be more of a Steve Young (6-2 215) and Donovan McNabb (6-2 240) because he is a better thrower of the football than Tebow or Vick, and will not have to rely on his athletic abilities as much as those two. He's going to have a very successful NFL career and I hope Miami trades up and drafts him so I can watch more of him.

I agree with everything you said its just people here think hes gonna be breaking ribs like Vick every other month. I see him as a Steve Young/Aaron Rodgers mold aswell

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
