RG3, Luck go on the offensive for No. 1 pick

Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are conducting a bit of a battle for the first overall selection in the NFL draft. And both are using the charm offensive.

Both have already begun interview sessions with teams. Luck has already spoken with the Colts at the Combine. RG3 spoke with Philadelphia Thursday evening and said he's scheduled to talk to Kansas City, Washington, and Indianapolis.

Luck shaved his mountain man beard for the event. RG3 today was rocking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle socks. Neither will throw at the Combine -- confirmed by both.

Luck is obviously prepared. He knows he is the presumptive first pick. But he cannot blow it by being something of a jerk during the Combine. He can leave no doubt that he'd be a bad teammate in Indy if he's selected and the Colts try to keep Peyton Manning.

So he's not.

"Peyton was my football hero. That's who I modeled myself after. You never truly replace a guy like that ... Who knows what happens."

Luck went on to say that, "If I have the opportunity to learn from a guy like that, of course, you're going to take advantage of it."

Yes, he was coached well. Luck measured an even 6-4 today.

RG3 was equally effective during his media session. The guy was masterful. Obviously, he wants to go No. 1 and cleared the way by saying he wouldn't be a problematic backup behind Peyton Manning.

"It would be an honor to sit back and learn," he said. "I'd hold the clipboard with pride."

Asked to name players he patterns himself after, RG3 mentioned Randall Cunningham, Steve Young, John Elway and Ken Stabler.

Ken Stabler!

One knock against RG2 was erased earlier today when he measured in at 6-2 3/8ths and 223 pounds. Another knock is he played his entire career at Baylor in the shotgun.

"So did Eli Manning and Tom Brady in the Super Bowl," Griffin said.

Griffin also said he's eager to get on the grease board with teams and show him he knows schemes. There is a perception the Baylor offense is simplistic and RG3 might have trouble picking up NFL concepts.

Not true, he said.

"I can't wait to show teams what I know," he said.

Griffin is from a military family. Both parents were sergeants in the service. "It helped me to be the disciplined person I am," he said.

Love this kid!

Odin, tell us about the time you went hunting on Morphine,With your child.Or should I just go back to your sept 5th posts?

He's even threatening to pull up an old post in which he faked me from 5 FREAKING MONTHS AGO!

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Oh no, women hating troll, NOT THAT! Not the old fake-a-rooskie post! ROTFLMFAO!

PS: Me and the Brunette fight all the time. No worries mate, the make up........"Stuff" is well worth the aggravation ;)

Suck on THAT you limp wristed women hater-LOL!

Just feel the trade can be done without a major impact to fins.

Reggie is not the kind of back that Philbin prefers for his System. It will be a nice gauge on his head-coaching ability to see how well he utilizes Mr. Bush.

Tebows NFL completion statistics:

12 for 1,789

Odinsty, Own up to your demons, It was you all day long, dont make me drag up old posts.And I'll never bring it up again.

Morphine and hunting???

Not cool dude, especially with children. Don't do something stupid you can regret forever.

How is Dibo, odin?


Let me guess, you're a limp wristed women hater too?


It's like I'm pyschic or something-Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Debo's on a diet right now(that means he's ornery).

With the weather and all I don't take him out for his work and excercise enough.

Trying to get him back down to around 95 lb range.

odin are you planning on destroying the blog again by cut and pasting for 19 hours?

Odin slowly trying to get banned., Odin, Start reposting stuff like you did last month and let Armando ban you.Also look for his "Man" Friend fin4life to come to the Idiots side.

Odins brown thumb, Are you with the Coalition that Odinsty must be banned 4ever?

ANYthing other than a big move to get RG3 and we are a losing team for 5 to 10 years

Tebow=5 and 11.

5-11 would be good for this novice coaching staff


Good call. In fact, you can count on the fact that 5-11 will be as good as it gets for years. Dumb and dumber have to be eliminated.

Great news about RG2, but the man has to be in his 50's by now. What about RG3? How'd he do?

That's a darned big dog, odin. I wouldn't get near you with a 100 foot pole. Can Dibo write?


The team is pretty hopeless. I cant believe Ross is allowing Ireland to do the draft again.

Ross is having an Honor Mark Sanchez day next year. JERK!

When you see cheapo Ross honor the opposition(Tebow) you know all he cares about is the dollars.

Can Dibo write?

No, but he has killed a coyote.

He also knows how to keep my feet warm when I'm watching TV.

Picture a Deer with an alligators head. That's my Puppy ;)

Ross has the cheapest GM, HC, AND QB'S anyone can find. So what does he expect, SB's? LMAO!


Odin, Does your trailer have a heater?

That's what your puppy looks like.

Tebow=5 and 11.

This is a minimum 10 win team with this coaching staff

I love dogs. Duffy(pronounced Doofy in Spanish) was a gift to my newly arrived Cuban girlfriend(at that time). A Pug,low key, and the smartest dog I've ever been associated with(could pick out one out of six toys we told him to). Then, came Ernie(like Sesame street, you know), a miniature Daschhund, fiery, and bit like hell. Also a gift to my then wife by a patient of mine. Then came Patrick(Sponge Bob), a huge Boxer, who proceeded to kill both Duffy and Ernie. Yes, a gift. Soon thereafter, I divorced. Yes, I love Dogs.

Fake Coalition @ 7:32And 7:33, Must be odin looking for sympathy., How sad.

10 games no way. Rookie HC, Rookie DC. The whole team learning new systems. I see 7 and 9 at best in 2012.

The one I use for Hunting and Ice Fishing does.

..The guy I want to keep an eye on is Baylor WR. Kendall Wright. I have started to do some homework on the guys I personally like. As far as reciever goes, for this team. I think Kendall is a guy we could target, in round 2 should he be around.

He is a better fit then Justin Blackmon. We NEED a guy that can bust things over the top. More then another reciever that controls the field(Marshall). Wright is perhaps the best "Big Play" reciever available in the early rounds. He would be a great slot guy, a player that we could use for some formation flexibility(I have a feeling this is going to be the overused term of this draft season) We need a guy that can create big plays out of short percise passes this offense relies on. Wright has the ability to make big chunk yardage plays with his speed, and athletic ability.. He could be used out of the backfield as well, as a runner(if we choose to put in a package for him..a few plays) or mismatch reciever. Paired with R. Bush, defenses will have to pick their poison as to who they key on.

Of course there are some negatives. But all the recievers in this draft hae some deficiencies. What I have seen(mind you I have no access to real tape, some video stuff on the web..which is limited because of the obvious) Much like Clyde Gates last year. Wright never faced press coverages. This is a concern because of his size. Also, one of the knocks on him is limited route running ability. I can't say that you could make this assesment from You Tube videos so I will take the experts at their word. My point about Wright is that we don't need him to be able to run the whole route tree day one..If he can win one one one battles in space, and blow the top off of cover 2..We woud have a piece we desperatley need. Wright in round 2 would be a tremendous pickup.

Odin are any of your hotties under 60?

1) Sparano was better then Philbin

2) We lost Nolan

3) Irescum is still here

Wright is a top 15 prospect.



DD what do you think about Coby Fleener? We are too thin at TE.

Good thing you're not a betting man, Lou. You'd be stone broke!!!!!!!!


The Dog I had before Debo(pitbull/bull mastiff)was a pit bull/boxer. He was smaller, but a very good dog to. He had a somewhat nastier disposition though. He got jealous of other people and dogs very easily.

Could be why he killed the other dogs you mention.

This Pit bull/Bull Mastiff is by far the best dog I've ever had. He's great with the kids and very smart. He's pretty tough and gets around good. But he's just a tiny bit gumpy because of his gigantic size and long legs.

All in all though, my most favorite Dog EVER!

If you guys from the United States used the metric system, you wouldn't be in the need of writing such measures as: 6-2 3/8th (much easier to say: 1.86 mts) high and 162 pounds and 4/17 oz. Because, let's be honest such numbers remit nobody to anything but: "Tall, medium, short, strong, heavy, weak" in your mind.

But WTH.

I don't want Manning in my team, because he'll be useless. I want RGIII because he's young and exciting. Flynn is OK, but I will have the feeling of getting something somebody else didn't want (which means nothing beyond a psychological state, because Favre, Harrison, etc. where just that).

Hey, Armando, do you pay these guys by the hour, by the # of posts written or on a fixed contract? We are working on it, don't worry.

Well, yeah...you keep him whole, odin.

oscar have you had sex yet in the 21st century? (I mean with a woman)

I will tell my older son, odin, as he had a pitbull when he was studying Medicine in DR. He held on to that dog as much as he could, but now, with 2 kids, I don't think he would go for that breed, or any kind of breed, for the matter of fact.

Proffesor Lou.. I didn't know that(About Wright).. I have seen some mocks where the Pats take him late in round 1. None so far where he went in the top 15. It wouldn't suprise me though. I think he is a tremendous player from the little bit i researched today.

Devils Advocate.. I like Fleener. He has good hands(I watched a ton of Stanford games this year thinking we would have a chance at Luck early in the year) He was in many ways used like the Pats use their tight ends, even split wide, or in the slot at times. He was Stanfords go to guy. He is a good blocker as well.

I have said that I think tight end is more important then reciever as far as need for this team. I am waivering a little for a few reasons. I would like to know what and how Philbin plans in using Clay in the offense. Will he be used primarily as an H-Back, hybrid sort of player? Also, Fasano was really good last year.when he wasn't asked to block. I don't know if he is what comes to mind when we think of dynamic tight end. I just don't know if Fleener is much of an upgrade over Fasano. IMO.A guy like Fred Davis could be a free agent that could be an immediete upgrade. I know he has some issues in the past. If the team feels these problems are behind him. He could be a guy we target.

Bro, dogs are like that box of chocolates, you know, you never know what you are going to get(like QB's, like Obama). After my divorce, I got me this beautiful Cocker Spaniel, but the dog was I believe, crazy(I think he had ADHD). He would shi- and pee all over my apartment, would jump on their face to lick my visitors, etc. I had to get rid of him. Now, in the XXI Century, I am alone. But always waiting for my G-spot.

DD, my concern is, what if Fasano gets hurt, even out for a game or two, do we have any other starting caliber TE? We picked a guy off NE's squad and he sat on the bench all year. It just seems risky to me going through another season with only one true TE. Clay is not really a TE, I don't count him as one, he is too small to be an NFL TE.

..Another guy I'm excited to see this weekend is Trumaine Johnson. I will try and remain as objective as I can with him. He is by far the player I actually know a lot about as I have seen every game the guy has played. There is no denying that there is a connection between the Dolphins and the University of Montana. I know there have been Dolphin scouts at Griz games all year..No doubt scouting Johnson. Who may end up being the best shut down corner in this draft.

I don't want to sound like a complete homer. And I understand that the level of competiton Johnson played against is nothing like the big boys. Saying he may end up as the best cover corner in this draft sounds like crazy speak. Seriously, this kid is the whole package. Speed, size, arm length, and the ability the ability to play press coverage. He is also a very good tackler in space, and can deliver HUGE hits. I wouldn't be suprised to hear his name called in the mid-to late part of round 2. It probably eliminates him from consideration here. If he falls to round 3, he may come into play.

Yeah, yeah, just pick a guy out of the Top Ten, will'ya.

DA...I hear you. Isn't Clay the same size as Dallas Clark-Chris Cooley? I don't see him as a traditional tight end. But a player we could use in 2 tight end sets primarily as a reciever. One great thing about Fleener is his size. I wonder what his arm length, and hand size is? It seems like part of the modern pass game is being able to throw the ball into spots where the reciever is the only one who can catch it at its high spot..More of this as a strategy then I can remember in the past especially as these tight ends have the mix of size and athletisim.

Bro, I had this girlfriend that when I plucked her from behind, in her front, she would remain deadly still, and then, some time later, she would shoot away from me, about 5 feet, saying ayyyy, ayyyy, ayyyy.

oscar are you sure it wasn't a he?

Clay seems to have a knack for getting open. I don't think he is a very strong blocker. If Fasano goes down, we need to be sure we have a solid blocking TE to back him up. Maybe one of those guys on the bench can do it, I don't know.

Sparano was a waste at developing and discovering talent.

ohhh lets get paid to blog and talk about our dogs, hey odin invite vick over to see your crap terror dog, he will take care of it.

Personally, I think our current receiving core is good enough. A better line and they will look much better. I'd like to see them make a play for RG3 but don't know if they will. If they don't go after RG3, then I think taking a top OT will do plenty to help this offense. Get the right side fixed and be done with it. Or...maybe Jerry can handle RT in which case draft D with the first pick.

I don't know yet. RG3 is looking more and more like unreachable for us. Good RT's are few in this Draft, however G's are plenty. Good pass rushers are divided in this Draft. Maybe we can land a good one. Free Agency will clear many of our doubts now.

There are no sure things in the draft.

Who the hell is ozkar the goofball? Take tannehill. What a joke. He is going to go in the 2nd rd if that. He sucks!

I am not impressed with Tannehill. Not at all. I wouldn't pick him in any round.
