    RG3 is going to be defined by the dynasty he will be a part of. The Redskins are daaaaamn weeeell set for the next 10-15 years.

    5 year hall-of-famer. That's his future worth.

    Inb4 RGIII gets Randal Cunningham style injury.

    Uh, how many Titles has Atlanta and Philly won with Michael Vick?

    Does ESPN push that "RGIII Savior of the NFL" angle 24/7 now? (I don't have Cable TV)

    I absolutely agree with you. I watched the Washington/Dallas game last weekend, and I was just not that impressed with RG III.

    He missed a lot of pretty easy throws. His throwing motion was not exactly "textbook", either. Dallas should have won that game, but as is always the case, Dallas managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    I like RG III, but the hype is way overblown and borders on comical. RG III is a quality human being, a leader, and you have to like everything about him. But his style of play will result in plenty of injuries, which will hinder his development and probably shorten his career.

    I see RG III, the football player, as a Michael Vick/Randall Cunningham hybrid.

    I see Andrew Luck as a Peyton Manning/Tom Brady type of quarterback who is MOBILE. Now THAT is scary.

    The Colts are going to be a top tier for MANY years to come. Luck is truly the "real deal". He has it all, and he has a young team behind him that is only going to get better with experience.

    The Colts are damn SCARY, for probably the next 5-10 years, at least. Once they get ALL the pieces in place, the Colts could easily become the next "dynasty".

    Take your pick. If I were rebuilding an NFL football team, I'll take Andrew Luck, without a doubt.

    Disclaimer: I live in the northeast, I am an ardent Patriots fan, and I have been a lifelong Browns fan (my hometown). Bernie Kosar has been, and always will be, my football "hero".
    I am NOT a Colts fan. I am NOT a Broncos fan. I am NOT a Steelers fan.

    Tonight on the radio ESPN is raving about The Seattle Defense. Oh and RGIII's injury and if Shananigan screwed up leaving him in there until he collapsed.

    I'm afraid he will end up with the knees of Joe Namath before he is done

    I look for RG3 to have a five year career before he is forced to retire

    First the guy is a class act and a true role model for kids. Second, he can run like Vick, but his arm, accuracy, field vision, patience and football IQ is what makes him great. Third, he has an awesome nickname RGIII.

    While I am a dead hard Bears fan, I root for this guy!
