Kent, the down-to-earth fella' with the straight-edge persona and studious appearance. Wayne, the flashy news piece with a cool public image. Both are handy in a pinch, something the Colts and Redskins are finding out about Luck and RG3. The two teams combined for 7 wins last year; they're on pace for almost double that this year (6 wins through 7 weeks of play). Still, Kravitz sides with Luck, and draws on some key points, such as:
Only 7 percent of Luck's passes have been targeted to running backs, one of the lowest ratios in the league. He throws to his wide receivers a league-high 72 percent of the time.

The Indianapolis Colts rode a strong first half offense and some timely defensive plays to overcome injuries and the Cleveland Browns to move their record to 3-3 and remain in the middle of the AFC playoff picture. The next stop on their journey to a quick turnaround is Tennessee, where they'll take on a Titans team who has overcome a slow start to add their name into AFC...

Instead of focusing on the Redskins offense today, I want to bring a couple of things to light about their defense, especially their pass defense.

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it. But if he’s anything like most people — which is arguable — RG3 probably cringed after recently taking part in an interview with [...]
Lethal weapons produce the most impact. Some of the impact is noticeable. Other times the impact is subtle but just as forceful. While the most lethal weapons in the NFL need a little help from their friends, they are pretty darn great all by themselves. Whether they sling the ball, run the ball, kick the ball or strip the ball, all the action is hardly every met by an opposite...
Washington, D.C. is a beautiful city. There’s the history. There’s the culture. There’s the late Chuck Brown. There’s the ever-evolving demigod Robert Griffin III who, somehow, in less than a half a season has etched his claim as the most beloved athlete Chocolate City has seen since some guy named Sean Taylor. There’s the sex, drugs, lies, [...]The post Fighting For...
