The Colts Authority:
Robert Griffin III
In 1998 the debate about the best quarterback available in the draft centered around the word "upside." While most appreciated Peyton Manning's football acumen, pedigree and polish most agreed that Ryan Leaf had a better arm as well as the potential to grow more. The pundits felt Manning was too ready. In hindsight they look like the buffoons in Major League proclaiming the towering shot was "too high" to make it out of the park.
You'd think they'd learn but as the world has proven many times, history will indeed be repeated.
Before the 2012 NFL draft more than one talking head declared Robert Griffin III had better arm strength and more upside than future Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. In fact, one such well-respected talent evaluator went as far as to say that Luck lacked "elite" arm strength. Someone wasn't paying attention in 1998.
That's not to say Robert Griffin III will be Ryan Leaf. In fact the two couldn't be more dif...

Even in the era of inflated ticket prices, it's a bit of a stretch to say there's $35 worth of entertainment value in a typical NFL preseason game.
But put together the top two picks in the draft - both quarterbacks - and schedule it for the third week - the game considered the dress rehearsal for the preseason - and the teams involved figure it'll not only be worth...
After last night's debacle on offense, the Arizona Cardinal faithful have to be disgruntled for not landing Peyton Manning during the offseason.Through their four preseason games, the Cardinals have gone 1-3 and the offensive line has looked awful at times. Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have combined for 5 INT's, 8 Sacks, and only 2 scores. They've also combined for...
The Indianapolis Colts didn’t play Andrew Luck long enough today to get a win over the Washington Redskins. The Colts did see a nice 31 yard touchdown pass from Luck to T.Y. Hilton to put the Colts in tie with Washington at 7 in the second quarter. Then RGIII did some more of his magic to put the Redskins back on top 14-7 with a 4 yard pass to Santana Moss. That’s when the Colts...

Against popular belief, just because you self-proclaim yourself to be elite, doesn’t mean your elite. If that was the case, Joe Flacco and Jamarcus Russell would already be in elite status. Against New York Giants fans and ESPN’s so-called “experts” belief, winning a Super Bowl doesn’t make you elite either, which keeps Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer out of this class...
