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.

you guys are reaching

lol.
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
I dont see how anyone can still take RGIII now. The dudes knee is toast. Hes just another great athlete who will never live up to his true potential because of injuries.

and LOL at everyone toward the beginning of this thread acting like RG3 was Steve Young, and Kaep was "not even close".

I love Kaep but I still think RG3s the better player when you don't include injuries.

Theyre both amazing runners, but i think Rg3 is the more accurate passer

But you DO INCLUNDE the INJURIES. That's part of the game and part of the evaluation....
Gotta ask yourself, couldn't Harbaugh make RGIII look like a beast as well?

Hell yes
same with Cam Newton. Newton would be a better Qb right now if he had Harbaugh

Nice thread.

Going with Kaepernick. Because he's cheaper, wanted to be a 49ers since 4th grade, just as skilled, and comes with tattoos!

last two QB's who were niner fans and we didn't draft them...things could have been so different if we got one of those guys...glad Kaep didn't slip away....

Dorsey grew up a niner fan.
