    If you missed this game you missed a classic. RG 3 made himself alot of mobey with that performance. Would love to see him in a texans uniform. His skillset is perfect for our offense.

    What are the chances he comes out vs. stays for a senior season? Anybody know when he graduates (as in completes his 4 year degree)? I would absolutely love it if he came out and we drafted him wherever we are in the 20's/30's. :) Perfect guy to sit behind Schaub and learn the system.

    I have been on his wagon awhile. He has a great skill set for this offense. He is highly mobile, has a great arm, is very accurate, has plenty of experience, and is fairly tough. If you can nab him and let him sit for a year or so, look out. However, with last nights game, the up coming bowl game, and Cam's sucess this year, we have no chance.

    Really enjoyed the game but I see RG3 as top 15.

    He has repeatedly said he wants to come back for his last eligible year(next year) as he begins law school here at Baylor. Last year he even said he wasn't interested in the NFL, but with the way his passing has progressed and the national attention he is getting(#1 in Heisman race right now) it is hard to see him turning down the money.

    I agree though, all I've talked about this year is drafting RG3 with our first round pick, whether its this year's or next, and Kendall Wright in the second. Check out Kendall on youtube, he is amazing!

    I believe you are right about this. The only thing that may be held against him is the style of offense he plays. I could be wrong I don't know much about Baylor but Im sure I heard somewhere that they don't run specific plays. They line up and he reads the defense and picks a play.

    Anyone else heard this? Because he is a threat at running the ball he'll probably get compared to VY alot. IMO from what I have seen he is more in the mold of a Steve McNair. I like him alot. He is humble, throws a beautiful deep ball and I've heard he has world class speed. (Is this true?) if he is really working on a law degree he can't be stupid.

    He'll Schaub is a decent QB but if we could land this guy via a reasonable trade or get lucky enough to have him fall to us, we should jump all over him. Let him sit and Learn behind Schaub and watch him become the future of our franchise.

    If it wasn't for a dropped ball and a penalty he would of had close to 600 yards passing against Oklahoma. His ability to buy time and then make a play Down field is very impressive for college player. Passing on VY was the smart thing to do. If given the opportunity to draft RG3 and we pass, I feel we will be regretting it.

    Reminds me of Randall Cunningham.

    I heard on the Notre Dame vs. Stanford game that Griffen went down with a head injury. Is this old news?

    That was my first impression. But the more I watched him play the more I leaned toward McNair. I think he is a better passer at this point than Cunningham was. He uses his running ability to keep plays alive as good as any college QB I have seen in a long time. Just go look at the last play of the game against Oklahoma for example.

    If RGIII comes out, I'm willing to bet the Redskins do everything in their power to acquire him.

    Ok you changed my mind. Did you see the play last night where he got hurt? How did he avoid that sack? If he played for a bigger name school he would have the heisman wrapped up.

    In the Denver offense, he will be pretty good, IMO.
