Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin has been terrific- he&rsquo;s 3rd in the nation this week in total offense, is completing 2 out of every 3 passes and runs the ball dangerously well.&#160; It may well be the toughest test of OSU&rsquo;s defense so far this season.</P>But there&rsquo;s a debate out there.&#160; Does Robert Griffin have what it takes to be an NFL quarterback?</P>Since missing most of last season after suffering a knee injury, Griffin has come back as a better passer, and he escapes the pocket still looking to throw.&#160; Running is what separates this Big 12 track titleist from other signal callers, but he has more talent to throw to than he ever has, and he&rsquo;s taking advantage of it.</P>Some say Griffin could be a scary pro QB.&#160; Others say he&rsquo;s too unconventional.</P>Watch for yourself.&#160; Watch Griffin&rsquo;s footwork, his release, his touch on medium-range and short passes on Saturday.&#160; Watch him make plays, the kind that win games in college, and then determine for yourself whether those plays translate to the next level.</P>Robert Griffin is good enough to help Baylor pull the upset of OSU- IF the Bears&rsquo; defense puts together its best effort of the season.&#160; But don&rsquo;t be surprised if the Cowboys can cause just enough mistakes (re: turnovers) to swing things in the home team&rsquo;s favor.</P><BR/>
