Michael Vick on RGIII: His style originates from me

Michael Vick and Robert Griffin III are two quarterbacks at distinctly different stages of their NFL careers.

Griffin, as a rookie, has helped the Shanahans re-imagine the quarterback position. Vick, who's expected to make one final start for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday after sitting for months, could do nothing but watch as RG3 calmly guided the Washington Redskins to victory Sunday.


"I'm a big RGIII fan," Vick told USA Today before the game. "He reminds me of what I do. I'm the originator of everything that's transpired in the league with the style of quarterback. It makes it gratifying to me."
Vick has not spoken wisely.

These are not the same players. Never have been, never will be. Yes, there was a time when Vick was seen through a similar lens as Griffin. He mystified defenses early in his career and put a new stamp on the position, but that's where the similarities end.

Anyone who has watched both Vick in his prime and RG3 operate knows how dangerous -- but how different -- they are. Mobile, sure, but RG3 is so much more.

With one game to go, Griffin has wiped out defenses, completing 66.4 percent of his passes, with 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions in his first campaign. Vick completed 44.2 percent of his passes in two starts as a rookie in 2001 and just 54.9 percent in 2002, when he tossed 16 TD passes to eight picks as a full-time starter. RG3's 104.2 passer rating is second best in the NFL. Vick finished his first full season with a pedestrian 81.6 rating.

It goes beyond the numbers. Plenty of veterans have toiled for years to achieve the accuracy Griffin has exhibited as a first-year pro. He has been exceptionally well-coached by the Shanahans, but he never has been handled with kid gloves. That never was needed.

Griffin has shattered beliefs about what an NFL team can do under center. There's no path for where he's going. It's not Vick's path, that's for certain. RG3 will cut his own.

Sorry Vick but I remember Randall Cunningham and Steve Young were doing their thing as dual-threat quarterbacks before you... image

theyre two different qb's. i think griffin is a better passer and has more room to grow. however, i will say they are both gamebreakers and highlight reel players. both have incredible speed.

Circa 2010, this is more true than any other time in Vick's career. Still, the comparison isn't as great as Vick thinks.

Yeah filling up the highlight screen is about the only similarity, cause Vick has never been consistent with his accuracy throwing inside the pocket.

Vick didn't invent this style he just brought it back and re-invented it. Randall started off. Anyway RG3 and Vick are different. RG3 is more pass first and run 2nd.

RGIII is more of vick, and cam newton is more of randall cunningham...

Vick had highlight plays with his feet, same with RGIII. Cunningham and newton both kinda threw off of their back foot a lot.

Heard this sh*t before with almost every black quarterback since Vick. They all can pass and run (for the most part), it's really nothing new.

It is imo...

Just like the early 2000's all over, vick got the big endorsements with nike etc. Had the nfl going crazy talking mvp and all that sh*t.

Yes, rg3 is a better passer of the football, but let's not act like vick use to bomb them sh*ts to.

RG3 is a better pure passer and is a pass first QB who has runs called for him.. look what happens when the play breaks down.. RG3 looks to pass down field.. IE.. the 4th down with the giants.. VIck runs to run...
