The New York Giants will get their first look this week at Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, and while we all know that RG3 can run like the wind, starting safety Antrel Rolle sees the rookie as a good passer who, six games into his NFL career, is worthy of being termed a "complete player."

 

"As you know, he can run the ball…I mean, he's a fast guy. He has a very, very strong arm and I think he's an all-around quarterback and he's going to get better with time," said Rolle this morning on WFAN radio.


The question was phrased comparing RG3 to Michael Vick, who will forever be known as the prototypical running quarterback who never quite mastered the pocket passing game. The book on RG3 coming out of college was that he would break that mold. So far at least one Giant sees him on that path.

That is, of course, if he can avoid the pratfall of other running quarterbacks and stay healthy.
