I'm one of the people that recognized Griffin's talent early. One of the few in this forum that thought Griffin was better then Luck pre-draft. And Griffin has surpassed even my lofty expectations. I think Griffin could become the best football player in NFL history.
However, talent and level of play are not synonymous. Griffin might be the greatest talent the QB position has ever seen but that is not the same thing as saying he's playing at the highest level.
Take Adrian Peterson for example. That dude is on pace to hit 2,000 yards. He's playing without the dominant OL, QB and skill position players that Emmit Smith had, he's not playing against defenses designed to stop the run-shoot like Barry. AD is playing behind a barely average OL, with little to no help from his QB, very little help at the skill positions and regularly faces 8 sometimes even 9 man boxes with the sole focus being stopping him. Yet he is on pace for 2,000 with a crazy YPC of 6.
AD is playing at one of the highest level's I've ever seen. (granted I'm much younger then you)
Imo Adrian is clearly playing at a higher level then Griffin.
Do you recall Aaron Rodger's 2011 season? Out of this world level of play.
If Griffin is playing at higher level then any player in NFL history then shouldn't the production from his passing offense be viewed as very underwhelming?
