But folks really want to pile it up RG3 like he's some kind of bum. He's still going to be a bona fide star in this league and his struggles last night have done nothing to change my mind about that. He'll learn from taking too many hits last year and take better care of himself, he played much better yesterday in the second half and more importantly gave a grown man's interview after the game, making no excuses and taking full accountability. He's a great leader. This was his first game coming back from a torn ACL and obviously pushing himself to be out there in week 1.
My beef with this whole thread isn't about who's better, it's about the idea that this comparison isn't even close. It's very good timing to be coming back to this after last night's game.
Thread title: Griffin or Kaepernick?

You were condescending at the comparison. I don't know if you're referring to our argument, but I never put down RGIII. I thought then that he'd be terrific and I still think he'll be great (I didn't bump this thread FWIW), I just think Kap holds the slight edge in potential, ability, and physical and mental traits.
I stand corrected. I did post that on the very first page. I foresaw homer posts with no objectivity whatsoever (based on what I see in Niner Talk on a regular basis), but looking back the discussion in this thread was pretty fair.
For the record, I got condescending when you started bringing up Wonderlic scores into the argument.
Fair enough. Wonderlic is definitely not indicative of overall intelligence, but I definitely think Kap is a smart cookie. We got a good one.
