YOU PUT YOUR WEEDEN THERE
Despite throwing four interceptions in Cleveland's loss to Philadelphia, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden claims he wasn't overwhelmed in his first NFL start.
He will struggle his first game as a starter in the NFL. He won’t overcome the "Who Dat" nation and the noise they bring. The Washington Redskins will lose against the New Orleans Saints. We heard this from everyone leading up to this season opener and boy was we wrong.Robert Griffin III went into his hometown and played like he had been playing in the NFL for years....
Robert Griffin III did not part the Red Sea or even score a touchdown on his first drive under center for the Washington Redskins. But on his second time out, he put the Redskins ahead with six quick points after tossing an 88-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Pierre Garcon. One play, one touchdown. The bomb and Garcon's evasive maneuverings should calm any worries that Washington...
JoeRGIII is having no problem adjusting to the NFL so far. He has thrown his first regular-season touchdown pass for 88 yards to Pierre Garcon. The Redskins are currently leading the Saints, looking for an upset victory.

It was one of the rare cases of the reality actually being better than the hype.
With five rookie quarterbacks starting their team’s opener on Sunday, Robert Griffin III stood head and shoulders above the rest of his class by putting on one of the most impressive debut performances by a QB in NFL history, and leading the Redskins to a shocking 40-3 victory over the Saints.
When the Seattle Seahawks paid Matt Flynn that big contract earlier this year, no one would have expected it was to be a back up. Flynn has been waiting to get in the game, because rookie Russell Wilson has unseated him as the teams starter, but can he keep the spot? After yesterday’s performance Wilson did a decent job, but they couldn’t come way with the...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- To preserve a nail-biting 20-16 win over Seattle on Sunday, the Cardinals defense had to complete what seemed like three or four red-zone stands in the final minute.
Two pass interference penalties. Six plays after what could have been a turnover on downs. And, remarkably, a phantom timeout.
The defense came through, though, forcing Seahawks rookie quarterback...
Growing Pains...and I'm sure as hell not referring to the 1980's sitcom with that pop star's father and the homophobe teen heartthrob. Growing pains are going to be abundant with your 2012 Cleveland Browns--if it wasn't clear earlier, it smacked us all in the face on Sunday. Not many Browns fans would have thought the team would be within a point of the Eagles in...

September 9, 2012

Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston's defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami in the Texans' 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Tannehill threw three interceptions in a stunning 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a Super Bowl season...
