RG3 and Luck were different. One was NFL ready, and the other, they adapted the offense to suit him and how he's got a destroyed knee. I'd love to persue Alex Smith, Matt Hasselbeck, or whoever Reid thinks can run his O while we develop our QBOTF
Any player drafted #1 overall is starting Day 1 or not long after that. No matter how ready he is.

One of the best plays Matt has ever made.
