No matter who drafts whom, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will face off in the preseason Week Three game this August. The gods of the NFL have decreed it. They never miss a marketing trick, do they?
The Indianapolis Colts visit the Washington Redskins during the preseason in a contest that has "national broadcast" written all over it. The Colts are expected to draft Luck. The Redskins swapped Draft spots with the Rams for the second overall pick to grab Griffin. If the Colts select Griffin, the Redskins will take Luck, which leads to an entirely hypothetical question.
Would Redskins fans boo Griffin in a preseason game? That is unlikely, but they would boo the Colts for stealing him. I can't imagine how that would make Luck feel.
That prospect seems less likely by the hour. RG3 is destined for the Redskins.
Talk of the NFL becoming a quarterback-driven league bypassed the Redskins. Washington devolved to a NFL backwater with quarterbacks like Danny Wuerffel, J...

Jim Irsay and the Indianapolis Colts have confirmed via Twitter that the Robert Griffin III's camp has declined a request for a private workout. Griffin's agent formally turned down the request, and while Griffin himself didn't do the talking, the writing is on the wall.
By not working out for the Colts, it ensures Griffin will be selected by the Washington Redskins...
After four years with the Indianapolis Colts, Pierre Garcon decided that he did not want to be a part of their rebuilding franchise. The Colts offered Garcon a five-year contract before free agency started. The deal was rejected and instead the speedy wide-out signed a five-year, $42.5 million contract with the Washington Redskins.
Washington was quite active in free agency....
