The 2012 NFL Draft started with a bang as the first two picks off of the board were quarterbacks. Andrew Luck was selected by the Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins traded up to take a chance on Robert Griffin III at number two. While the Colts weren’t exactly criticized for their selection of Luck, many wondered if maybe Griffin was the better candidate for Indy. Clearly, the Luck-haters have been silenced if not killed off. After two years, it’s plain to see that Luck and Griffin are just on different playing fields.
Luck captured his first playoff win on Saturday as his Colts rallied back from a 28-point deficit to send the Kansas City Chiefs straight into the offseason. A three-interception day for Luck wasn’t expected, but his team still got the win and Indy is now moving on. Meanwhile, the Redskins are in the market for a new head coach because their second-year quarterback took it upon himself to make the 2013 campaign all about RG3.
In fact, Griffin was more worried about “operation patience” tee-shirts then he was about converting first downs. Hence, Washington is right back in the NFL’s cellar after a 3-13 season that saw Griffin take a monstrous step back. Therefore, it’s time to stop comparing Griffin and Luck to one another. It’s blatantly obvious that the Colts won big with their decision to draft Luck and the Redskins…well, they are probably wishing they had all those draft picks used to trade for Griffin back in their possession.
