Luck vs RGIII: Despite Pro Days, Game Tape Still the Telling Tale of Future QBs

Now that their respective pro days are in, the blogosphere chatter of who's the better QB has started between Luck and RG3 again. That being said, it sickens me to see the media slant favoring Luck continue in it's not so subtle headlines. When I watched the pro days of both QBs, it really wasn't to get confirmation on who was better. I just wanted to see them throw the ball. My mind has already been made up on who I feel will be the better QB. I have said on more than one occasion that I believe Luck will be an outstanding QB at the next level. In fact, I am one of the few people who wouldn't be upset regardless of who the Colts take. If you journey around the various blog sites of both the local and national media, you won't have to go far to see that a lot of Colts fans are all on the "Luck or bust" train and would have a shit fit if RG3 was chosen instead. Again, we can thank the slanted favoritism given to Luck by the national media for it.

When RG3 began his pro day, he was asked by a reporter if he was nervous. His response was:

"I always said I didn't have anything to prove at pro day. That's why it's so easy," Griffin said. "It's really not stressful. ... The game tape speaks for itself."

Then of course after his stellar performance, people were wondering how Luck would respond at his. The fact that Luck chose to throw into the wind when given the option of throwing indoors was nothing more than a personal challenge to out do Griffin's performance. It was also a ploy to make people think that since he threw into the wind he most surely is "the better QB." And the "Pro Luck posse" fell for it. Honestly, I'm really tired of this ridiculous argument because truth be told, they are both equally "pro ready." Everyone who keeps saying that "Luck is more pro ready" than Griffin have absolutely nothing to stand on other than the biased opinions of major sports personalities who use platforms like ESPN and Fox Sports News to broadcast this wide, misconception along with their own biased, personal preference. This is why I echo the words of Griffin in saying: "The game tape speaks for itself." In all fairness, if you are going to give an edge to either QB based on film, it should go to Griffin hands down. He has been the more accurate QB. He has thrown for more yards despite missing the majority of his sophomore season. He has thrown for less INTs and did so under more pressure situations. "The game tape speaks for itself."

It's time to kill the "who's the better QB" argument between these two because it's been quite clear from long before all of this current media hype. RG3 is not some guy who just now came on the scene who "had one good year." He has been consistently good throughout his illustrious college career. He deserves the same amount of credit and respect that Luck is getting. "The game tape speaks for itself."
