Default pretty sure RG3 will bust

Pretty much watched every baylor game from k-state and on last year. RG3 is as raw a qb prospect you'll ever see. Dude rarely needed to read through his progressions, as he was a one read and run type, and headed a quintessential college offense if i've ever seen one. Screen after screen after screen.
Luckily for him, he had a fairly compatible receiving corps surrounding him replete with track athletes that greatly complemented his best and maybe only viable attribute: the deep ball. Dude had no poise, rarely was asked to make a 3-5 step drop, had horrible footwork, is EASILY flustered and rarely was accurate on his intermediate throws. just not nfl starting qb material, at least at the moment. wanted to make this thread around draft time, but didn't feel like it. watching dude play today sorta rekindled and inspired chit

Every NFL QB is a possible bust, I haven't been 100% sure of a QB prospect since Peyton Manning.

Your analysis is lined with a bit of hate too.....he's not THAT bad.

I am glad the authority on the subject finally weighed in. Now if only we could find way to get him out of the league so he doesn't waste our time..

Yeah definitely. It's just that of all the things you look for in a passer, a terrific deep ball and a competent arm are pretty much all he has. His mechanics were mediocre in college at best. I'm pointing all of this out not for the sake of bashing the dude, but simply to draw attention to how very underdeveloped he actually is, contrary to pretty much every tv analyst's "evaluation"

TV analysts take their cues from scouts who are seasoned evaluators. NFL franchises spend loads of money researching these kids as to not make a mistake. Plus they've given personal workouts to evaluate the competency of their choices.


He may be raw but you are definitely selling him short.

You make a point, but scouts apparently fail all the time. And do you not think every now and again a team would get pressured into drafting a prospect enshrouded by hype, especially when that prospect is an idk Heisman winner/highlight machine/statistical god/athletic freak, almost regardless of what should be glaring weaknesses in his game?

Lol, preseason and he's a bust?

Sorta OT, but Kirk Cousins looked really good last night for the Skins.

It's an evaluation based off of observations of his skillset. I think as a prospect he is at best a HUGE project with great potential, and at worst just a flat out bust of course. still a huge project nonetheless. i hope he proves me wrong

1.) What would your opinion be if you had season tickets to your team for 4 years in a row, and all 4 years, your team absolutely bitch slapped/took RGIIIs lunch money to the tune of an average ~30 point victory?


You might say shit like, he suxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I've seen him cry, true story.




2.) Why the hell did they draft Cousins, if they were 100% sold on RG3??




3.) Cousins > RG3
