Andrew Luck explains why he does fewer ads than RG3

Robert Griffin III is everywhere. He's in national ads for Adidas, Subway and Gatorade. There is a 74-foot tall image of Griffin looming over Washington D.C.

Even the Redskins have got into the act, printing T-shirts of Griffin and Andrew Luck for this Saturday's rookie "QB showdown

While Griffin is everywhere, Andrew Luck is in Indianapolis. Luck chose not to pursue national marketing opportunities before his rookie season. His profile also will be lower because the Colts will be featured on national television only one time all season. The Redskins are consistently a good national draw.

Bob Kravitz of The Indianapolis Star wrote about Luck's choice to eschew some early cash, and we echo his point that there is no right way to "market" yourself. Both players should do whatever they want.

Luck put it well.

"I really didn't have much time," he said. "And I wanted to make sure I had time to handle the stuff that mattered, whether it was moving into an apartment, finishing school or learning the playbook. There was so much going on, I figured the less time I spent promoting myself or doing ads, the better for me. I figured I'd wait and hopefully, at some point, a big fish will come along.'

"And really, to each his own. I don't necessarily think my way is the right way. It's what's best for each person. It's fun to see Robert capitalizing on his situation."

The rookie wage scale lowered Luck's first contract, but it's not like the guy is starving.

"I'm living fine right now," he said. "I'll focus now on football, and maybe after the season is over, we'll pursue some other opportunities, maybe something in the Silicon Valley. But for now, the time isn't right."

As preseason games go, Saturday's Redskins-Colts showdown is tough to top. It will be even better when the two face off in a game that counts. By then, we're sure Luck will be in plenty of ads.

I think RG3's game is more flashier. However when it comes to marketability, it's a balance between that and the look..


Cam is not an ugly man(lets be honest, we know an ugly n*gga when we see one). Cam has a movie star face. Only reason why he'd be more marketable, even if RG3 and Cam produced the same on the field, and even despite the fact that RG3 plays for a more prolific and historical franchise.

Wasn't luck late out of school? That situation alone means he didn't have much time to get setup with getting the play book, apartment, etc. no shots fired, he pretty much saying his situation didn't call for him to do a lot of endorsements. Nothing wrong with RG3 or any high profile rookie doing them.

No, I'd rather see cam then RG III [][]

Cam got the style and the winning ability. Dude makes everything he does look amazing. He is "swagged" out.

coming out of college most talking heads thought Cam was a thug who was being paid under the table and boosting laptops he wasn't as marketable as uncle tom rg3 coming out of college.

Cam wasn't half as marketable as RGIII coming out of college.

His NFL draft experience was surrounded by his collegiate allegations, and having everyone tell him and the Panthers that they would have to "settle," for him since Luck opted to remain in school.

RGIII has been squeaky clean so far, and attempts(I a.ssume it's genuine) to be down to earth, and appeal to common folk.

Now will RGIII come close to producing Cam's rookie #'s? I'm voting no.

A lot of people hated Cam last year coming out of college because his dad, so I think RG3 is a little more marketable... In the long run, Cam no doubt.
