Those stats don't much as a prospect unless you wanted Timmy Chang also .

It's to bad they didn't play against each other so we see who is really the best.

Agreed. I will not respond to the other silly posts as I watched both Griffin and TB. Griffin better player. If you use TB's stats to aid your cause as most do and should, then you use stats for others as well as what you & others say about a player's skills.

RGIII beat Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas Tech and Washington. When was the last time a Baylor team did that in one season? RGIII stats back that up. TB can't really say he's ever had that kind of year against that kind of competition.

RGIII also had quite a few more future NFL players on his squad. And by quite a few I mean a lot.

I really think this debate is silly though. Aside from being skinny, athletic, and black, these guys are totally different players. I did have Griffin rated higher though.

Agreed, few things on MB irritate me but when someone uses one set of criteria to support their position of a player then changes to discredit another player it does make my teeth grit.

An example would be to complain about Derek Newton but not compare him to Duane Brown same year of career. I believe fair evaluations should always be done based on known evidence not just "I like him so he has to be good."

Based on what? See that's my point, you watched both and made allowances for other players, competition, etc. You made a fair evaluation based on totality of factors. We agree on this player but I am cool even if we disagree because of the format of evaluation used. Stats are not everything nor is the 40 time but all are tools.

Neither did Joe Flacco - last years Super Bowl MVP and now $100 Million Dollar Man.

Art Briles' led Baylor beat the hell out of all those teams this year too that were on their schedule.

in 2011 RG3 also got beat by 6 loss A&M, the 2 other losses were good teams though.

If the 2011 Baylor team has the 2013 Baylor defense they likely go undefeated.

Excuse me, I'm sorry, I thought this was discussion about RGIII and TB. I didn't realize it also included Tebow, Flacco, Roethlisberger, Mettenberger, Tarkenton, Vince Lombardi, Sonny Jurgenson, Thomas Jefferson, Nathan Hale, Stanley Miller, Capernicus, Issac Newton, Leonardo DaVinci, Michaelangelo and Pope John Paul II

OK ... put Teddy on that Baylor team and RG3 on this Louisville team and what happens ?

Last year Teddy's team beat the snot out of #3 Florida and that might have been a better win than anything RG3 came up with . Especially after that Bostic hit early .

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

There was a lot of talk in this thread a few pages back about how Teddy B didn't deserve to be in the conversation for the Texans because he wasn't even a Heisman Finalist.

Well one Heisman Finalist, 6'00" QB, Jordan Lynch, did play last night. 20/35 on 57% completion with 2 total TDs (1 rushing) and 1 Interception all while Jordan Lynches Northern Illinois Huskies got their ass handed to them against 9-5 Utah State. His only passing TD of the game was achieved with 1:44 left in the game when the game was basically out of hand.

Two for one...

My comparison for Bridgewater has always been a taller, more slender version of Russell Wilson, and I'll stand by that #NFLDraft
Quote:
1. QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville*

NFL Comparison: Russell Wilson, but three inches taller.


Where He Wins: Excellent pocket movement. Bounces off his back foot to step up against edge pressure and isnít afraid to slide laterally when faced with an interior rush. Keeps eyes up to survey coverages and works to multiple reads. Placement and touch are there, but has the velocity to hit vertical routes on the move. Not afraid to give a covered receiver in single coverage a chance to win. Reports have stated he takes care of many checks at the line of scrimmage.

Where He Fits: He fits any offense. Sustains success from the pocket but also has mobility which isnít showcased often. Hits every level with placement and timing.

Anyone arguing for clowney,matthews ,or whomever else didn't watch tonight. He made dep breaking routes,he showed precision,poise,movement and a level approach even after the safety. Rick was in the building and he had to be impressed. When he interviews,he's gonna kill it too.

It looked good tonight, outside of some correctable mistakes. I'll be interested to see how he interviews as I think the mental strength of a quarterback comes first.

Having said that, comparing Bridgewater to Wilson is just odd. They are not very much alike at all.
