    Question Robert Griffin has mediocre game...hailed king

    Look, I get this guy is elusive and he is a great up and coming talent, but he puts up mediocre stats against our Giants and he's basically hailed the king of the NFL. The guy put up 13-21 and 163 yards with 1 touchdown. To me that's not even worthy of an article, yet it's 7:00 in the morning and I've come across 3 articles already just on my phone, and I haven't even picked up the paper yet. The lovefest this guy received last night on ESPN was sickening, I felt like throwing my remote through the television. They got lucky on a few plays that went their way. I get the argument that he did just enough to get his team a victory, but I'm not buying into this RG111 hype. I get that the Redskins haven't had anything worth talking about for the last decade, but please media, let it go, there is far more talented rookie QB's to talk about every freaking day. Don't mind me, just venting.
    Not the actual Man, Myth, Legend....Just a Giant fan since birth, I come in peace

    In about 5 to 7 years he'll be another Michael Vick. TO machine; gun shy from taking too many hits. That's just the life of a NFL running QB. Too many have come & gone. There 1st TD was a fumbled run for TD. How many times can you bank on that?

    You guys are nuts. Vick never in his life could pass the way this kid can. He's also a lot smarter than Vick. Vick couldn't identify a single high safety look if it hit him in the face!

    What does he do that's smarter than Vick? Mostly looks like one read to me.

    In his prime Vick could make every throw. The Giants offense did more to help Washington win last night more than RG3 did.

    Actually Vick didn't become a good passer until after he left prison. Don't know how he morphed into a good passer, but he did. During his years in Atlanta, he was fast and elusive as heck.

    However, it was always obvious that Mike Vick had the potential to be a great passer. I think he was never coached properly and developed while he was in Atlanta. Andy Reid did a good job with Mike Vick but then didnít address the offensive line issues and Mike Vick has been getting killed out there.

    I must have missed that game.

    Wow - talk about revisionist history. By his prime Im assuming you mean Atlanta where he was an incredibly innacurate passer. All you would hear is that if he could improve on his passing game how unstoppable he COULD be. He's always had a cannon but there was never a time in Atalnta where he could make every throw. Never.

    Oh is that why Vick's passing numbers have been so awesome over the years :P
