John Madden: RGIII Is Like Tebow … Only He Can Actually Pass

Count NFL Hall of Famer John Madden in as a member of the Bob Griffin III Fan Club.

From NFL-AtL:

“And at some point, I have to admit that I said this, it just came out, I said ‘RG3’s the best player in the NFL today.'” Madden said on his on SiriusXM NFL Radio show with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon. “That’s what I really thought. Those words did come out. Now, I don’t know that I’m gonna live with that or back that up the rest of the season.”

“You know, the thing that he did that was so amazing was he reminded me — and I don’t mean to throw names around — but he reminded me of a Tim Tebow that can pass,”

“You know, Tim Tebow, when he was playing for Denver last year, he would tend to freeze the defenses, because they weren’t sure if it was run or pass, if he was gonna hand off or run. I mean, he couldn’t pass like RG3 — (Griffin) can throw the ball — but he has a tendency to freeze the defense.”
