After watching the Seattle Seahawks dismantle my beloved Washington Redskins, and reviewing these stats:
Griffin set a rookie record for passer rating at 102.4, but Wilson (100.0) also broke the mark that was set by Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004 (98.1).
Wilson threw 26 touchdown passes to tie the NFL rookie record that Peyton Manning set with the Colts in 1998, but Griffin threw 20 TD passes and only five interceptions.
I can't help but wonder whether the Redskins should have kept all those draft picks they traded to the Rams to get Griffin and drafted Wilson in, say, the second round. RGIII may be the better player in the long run, but will he be that much better to justify losing three first round players? And what if Wilson turns out to be the next Drew Brees?
