It's tough to pick between the two (and Cam Newton) - but I'll go with Cam, Griffin, and Kaep - but I believe all 3 will be top 5 QBs in the league in couple years.
No way Cam is on the same level. He doesn't have what it takes upstairs, imo. I still take Kaep over Griffin at this point. I haven't watched a whole lot of Griffin, but I still think Kaep has the highest ceiling of maybe any QB ever and he's realizing his potential awfully fast. Of course, he may lay an egg manana and my feelings may change, but right now it's hard to argue with how he's played over his first eight starts.
RG3, my god this board has lost all objectivity whatsoever
Why? Kaep has all the measurables Griffin has, while beating him soundly in the mental department (if you put any stock in Wonderlic scores). We don't have the benefit of watching Kaep play like this for a full season, but if his first five games were projected onto an entire season, there's no way you'd be complaining for objectivity.
RG3: 24 total TD, 6 total turnovers, 2902 passing yards, 748 rushing yards in 13 games
Kap (as a starter): 9 total TD, 3 total turnovers, 1088 passing yards, 202 rushing yards in 5 games --> projected over 13 games: 23 total TD, 8 turnovers, 2829 passing yards, 525 rushing yards
and that's ASSUMING, for your convenience, that his projected numbers don't take a hit.
RG3 was the superior prospect coming in, and he's been just about everything he was hyped up to be. I ain't knocking Kap at all, I'm excited for him, but I'd take RG3 over him
RG3 also been injured twice already. He seems a little small and fragile to continue that style of play also I think Kap is a better pocked passer.
very similar players but the only reason i think kap gets the nod over griffin is because kap is bigger and more durable. Griffin is just too dam injury prone and cant take a hit with out hurting something. Kap got sandwiched between two defenders and jumped right up to spike the ball and threw a TD pass right after.
there is no point in having a threat like griffin if he cant stay on the field
