It is commonly accepted -- by old farts like me -- that youth is wasted on the young.
I know; passer rating is a woefully incomplete metric. And precisely because of that, it doesn't begin to capture the full range of Griffin's talent.
The kid's got world-class speed, remember?
He'll run for more than Cam last year. He's averaging better than 6.5 yards a carry.
Forget the numbers, though. Remember this: six months out of college, he has talent without hubris. Youth without folly. The capacity to thrill without making the fatal mistake.
Hey, some guys spend their entire careers making rookie mistakes.
You can thank me now, or call me an old fart later.
