Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck have been the most talked about rookie QBs this year, and with good reason. But the most intriguing rookie QB has been Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks. You know the story: he was not a first round pick; he doesn’t have the measurables that impress scouts; he was expected to be a third QB behind newly-signed Matt Flynn or incumbent Tarvaris Jackson. You also know what happened: he kicked everyone’s ass in Seahawks training camp and became the starter. Here is a video a friend sent that provides a small window into the thinking and determination Wilson possesses, which has allowed him to overcome seeming deficiencies to just keep producing and winning.   Catch Wilson and the Seahawks tonight on Monday Night Football against the Packers. Our Chris Callaway previewed the game earlier this afternoon. And, of course, regardless of your rooting affiliation, use this to prepare yourself for a night of responsible imbibing.

TerezOwens.com draws an astute Robert Griffin III comparison

This is just a straight repost, with credit to Terez for drawing the comparison… I always knew that Robert Griffin had a unique look. He’s got a strong sense of style, a love of socks, and he’s a pretty unique guy. But he’s reminded me of someone…

Will the triple option work for the Redskins?

Mike Shannahan is certainly known for his bag of tricks when it comes to offense, especially during his short time in Washington with the Redskins. He certainly could not ask for a better quarterback to be able to direct that offense than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor University in Robert Griffin, III. Through three games this season, Griffin has shown that he...

Seattle Seahawks, Replacement Referees Make Great Team

It was fourth and last chance, throw it up, and pray.

Seahawks controversial win, slight revenge for the city

Golden Tate, Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks stole one from the Green Bay Packers. There is no disputing that, anyway you try to cut it. Seattle fans are not ignorant. They understand their team won when it shouldn’t have. But they don’t care. A win is a win. And for a city that has been on the receiving end of controversy so many times in the past decade it...

Redskins-Bengals Open Thread

So far this season the Redkins have won a game we didn’t expect them to win and lost a game we didn’t expect them to lose, which is very Redskins. The difference of course is that Robert Griffin III was our quarterback in both games, and he was spectacular. May he be so again, no matter what occurs.

Fantasy Football Trade Tactics

The famous country singer Kenny Rogers once said “You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em.” I think that is a great way to look at trades in fantasy football.
