I'm not suggesting he's a bust or will bust, because he won't. He's going to be terrific, but with the way these networks have been dissecting his play and the media as a whole acting like he's the greatest thing since Michael Vick.. It's just not what I want as a Skins fan. Less attention please.
A lot of the media guys at the park like Campbell and Russell have been nothing but negative and should be disregarded.
Griffin is a rookie and like every rookie outside of Cam Newton he's going to have his struggles. All the elite QBs have taken a couple years to reach elite status.
I'm more worried about durability, but if he survives his first two seasons without a major injury I think he'll grow into his frame a bit more and be fine, ie Rodgers.
