Which rookie will excel this weekend? The playoffs are here and it's time to analyze the players and teams. Here's a look at the Quarterbacks in the playoffs and how they stack-up against each other. #1 - Peyton Manning - After the season Peyton had it's hard not to put him at the top of the list.  He has home field, the experience and his team is rolling right now. #2 - Tom Brady - Brady and the Patriots have a first round bye yet again.  The Patriots need their defense to step-up if they want to win the Super Bowl, they don't need to worry about their QB. #3 - Aaron Rodgers - Rodgers can put up big numbers on offense and that's not their problem.  This is another team that needs their defense to step-up #4 - Matt Ryan - Ryan has his team in position with a first round bye but everyone is waiting to see what they'll do in the playoffs.  We'll see next week. #5 - Matt Schaub - This is probably too high for how Schaub based on ho...

This unidentified grocery store's attempt to make a Washington Redskins cake was a good effort, except for one small detail. Unfortunately, it's the most critical detail of the cake: they misspelled the team name. Sorry, it's not spelled "Reskins". Since the cake apparently hasn't been sold yet, maybe it can still be fixed. Or, maybe the...

Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson’s Quest To Stardom

At the beginning of the year, I didn’t believe Russell Wilson would become the starter in Seattle. I had Matt Flynn penciled in as Seattle Seahawks’ starter this season. Don’t get me wrong, I have always been a fan of Wilson, I just didn’t think he would be their guy right now.  In my mind, I didn’t expect them to shy away from the man that they just signed over the offseason...

Redskins Injury Report: Kory Lichtensteiger, Robert Griffin III, London Fletcher

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn’t included on the team’s injury report this week and linebacker London Fletcher is probable to play today against the Seattle Seahawks, but offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger is questionable to play with an ankle injury.
