Pure curiosity here to see if I am crazy or what. They both seem almost identical to me though. Plus size,arm strength and athleticism, high character and intelligence, gaudy passing stats in a goofy offense, very unrefined passing skills overall, though the base is arguably there.
I know Yellowknifer and others liked CK even more than Cam Newton last year, but there is clearly something that separates those 2 and I feel like there is something similar separating a Griffin from a Cam Newton or maybe even Vick. I can't fully put my finger on it though so I'm curious what others think.
Is Griffin a guy like Newton who can highly impress as a rookie or a guy like Kaepernick who has it all on paper, but can't even convince a team like SF, who's QB is mediocre and a FA, to give him a chance at starting in his second year? Maybe somewhere in between?
Just thought it was worth discussing Griffin a little more after the big trade.
