    The steroid analogy was figurative. RGIII is better at every facet of the game but they play similarly. The difference is RGIII can do it at NFL speed against NFL size with NFL arm. That throw across the field last week and the the throw to win the game against Oklahoma last year were just amazing. I can only think of maybe 5 QBs in the NFL that could make that throw accurately.

    After 4 games in the NFL, RGIII has exceeded an realistic hope I had for him. The guy is incredible.

    4th in QB rating
    3rd in Yards per attempt
    11th in total yards
    Only 1 interception all year
    252 yards and 4TD's rushing

    There has never been a QB that came out of college this NFL ready.

    To be fair the NFL is turning into the big 12, but he is still doing better than Andrew luck. The Rams royally screwed up.

    He's outperforming a lot of other QB's too though, like Stafford. Everyone is blaming poor QB play on replacement refs not calling the came correctly, meanwhile a rookie is shredding people. He'll come back down to earth statistically, he'll also continue to get hit hard. He isn't bulky, he's gotten injured in the past - only a matter of time.

    RG3 probably needs to scramble less because I don't know if he can survive too many hits.

    If you are GM today and you can pick RGIII or AL, who would you pick right now? I think I would still pick AL at this point.

    He certainly needs to be smarter. He should have never taken that shot.

    I think RGIII will be a great quarterback, but if it were my team, I'd still prefer Andrew Luck.

    Same here. Andrew Luck has been impressive as well.

    Scrambling isn't the problem, it's when he tries to make yards running. RG3 probably needs to scramble MORE because he's so dynamic throwing the ball on the run.

    Hopefully this hit is the one that teaches him going for an extra yard or two is a bad idea.

    RG3 is going to be injured quite often throughout his career. But he's going to be scary good when he's playing.

    Andrew Luck is also scary good. The Colts could have easily be 3-1. This guy is going to fill Manning's shoes, and possibly more. You have to watch him operate and see how far ahead of the curve he is compared to most, if not all, rookie QBs.

    And look at this hit, and Luck gets up like it's nothing.

    And with all this talk about great rookie QBs, Cam Newton is stinking it up like a mofo (I'm pissed b/c he's on my fantasy team)

    If you're watching FOX this morning, you learned how R.g. III brought Obama & Romney together, in sense.

    Amazing athlete. Even more amazing human being.

    Sam Bradford will be the better QB between RG3 and Luck

    ;)
