Griffin or Kaepernick?

Griffin or Kaepernick?

RG3
RG3 its not even close. I like Kap but this its not close.
we'll see how rg3 does against russel wilson and then against kappernick
Griffin. He'll impress anybody multiple times a game.

Although I do agree that he needs to learn how to protect himself better. Looks like he's sacrificing himself to often on runs for a little extra yardage and he's going to have an injury riddled career if he keeps doing that.

Kaep isn't as daring, which I like. RG3 has taken some hits man. I'm glad he is tough but I wouldn't want my QB to take those shots. I'd want them to be pocket passers and reserve their mobility for escape.
Right now...its hands down RG3. He is a once in a life time talent. But there is a cavieate, his play style combined with body type is going to make his career very short if he doesnt adjust. It will be a spectacular few years, but I suspect he will break down fast the way he is going.

So if your investing in the long haul you may want CK. Better build to take the hits, more interested in learning to be a pocket passer, superior arm,and still has the wheels and improvisational skill to be special. In short he may not be the better guy over the next 3 years or so...but he stands to be a great QB for 10+ years instead of 5 or 6.
luck
Kaep seems more durable. Also, he has a higher ceiling.

I really think RG3 is going to have injury issues his whole career. He just plays too wreckless.

It is close. RG3 appears to be slightly better but his durability is a big questionmark.
Probably RG3 now but Kaep in the long run.

How is it not even close? What has RG3 done that is so much better?

Kaep was 5-2 with wins against CHI on MNF, @NO, and @NE. He finished the year with the 3rd best QBR behind only Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

In fact, In the 5 years since they started tracking QBR, Kaepernicks total of 76.8 ranks as the 9th best season. The 8 seasons in front of him? Rodgers, P.Manning, Brees, P.Manning, P.Manning, Brees, Brady, Brady,..Kaepernick.

He only played 7 seven games so that start is irrelevant. RG3 is a better runner, passer, and he rarely turns the ball over. He and Kap will both be special but RG3 is superior as is Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. Kap could eventually surpass them and I hope he does but right now they're better.

lol again, what are you basing that off of? Theyve all played just a handful of games. Kaepernick has the most raw physical ability of any young QB in football. Who else in the NFL has a cannon like that, with that kind of speed and size? Nobody. He is JUST as good a runner as RG3. remember the preseason run against the Vikings? Every time i see this, i cant believe hes a QB.


Just like Luck and RG3, he stepped right into his first NFL action as if hed been playing for a couple years. Hes been just as impressive as Luck, RG3, and Wilson so far. Hes certainly faced harder opponents. The Colts had the NFL's weakest schedule this year, Wilson was 3-5 on the road, and the hardest team RG3 faced was Baltimore.

His durability is a question mark because the Redskins use him like a f**king running back. The Redskins' brass and HC are morons for running their future right into the ground so early in his career. He has the highest ceiling of any QB in the league, IMO. He's got the accuracy, arm strength, football IQ, touch, personality, the list goes on and on.

When talking about potential, both are on the same page. Keep in mind, however, that Kaep got to sit for a year and a half under Harbaugh— who can wave his dick around and turn a qb into a star—and started with an offense that possessed Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and one of the best offensive lines in the NFL.

Griffin has started day one and took a mediocre team and turned it into a playoff team.

Both have extremely high ceilings, but what Griffin has shown in his first year is incredible.
