Second-year slumpbusters: Robert Griffin III

So, There’s A (Probably Untrue) Rumor That RGIII Was Texting This Hooters Waitress On The Morning Of His Wedding…

Andrew Luck , Robert Griffin III , Russell Wilson, and Colin Kaepernick all took their teams at either the start of the season, or at crucial times down the stretch, and redefined their offenses to a historic degree. Luck took the Indianapolis Colts , 2011’s worst team, to the playoffs, and he was anything but a “game manager.” He attempted more deep passes and took more pressure than any other quarterback. Griffin cost the Washington Redskins first-round draft picks in the next two years, but he proved to be worth that price when he took his team’s formerly moribund offense into the vanguard of the NFL’s new option attacks. Russell Wilson wasn’t expected to start when he was drafted — that’s what happens to a third-round pick who was dinked by front offices because of his height — but he had a similarly transformative effect on the Seattle Seahawks ‘ offense, and tied Peyton Manning’s rookie record for touchdown passes while bailing out of the pocket more often than anyone else at his position. And Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers took his team to the verge of a Super Bowl win in his 10th professional start (yes, dear commenters, we do know that he was not a rookie in 2012 … but he was a first-year starter), with an offense that turned out to be uniquely and perfectly suited to his strengths. Four young men who have done the unexpected, and raised the level of expectation for rookie quarterbacks to a ridiculous degree. Now that their performances are in the books, however, all four of them are facing the same tough question: What do you do for an encore? We’ve explored how Luck’s second season might be different — now, let’s go under the hood with Mr.

It has a picture of someone that could be RGIII attached. That means nothing. Changing someones contact to RGIII and having them text you is very easy. You can even do it yourself. Creating fake texts on the internet is also extremely easy. I once wrote a (fictional!) story about Tim Tebow marrying a Jew and created these alleged texts from Tebows phone in about three minutes.

Since then someone else–a couple guys actually have bested the Redskins superstar. Any guesses as to who? The honor now belongs to this guy: From April through June… Via Jocks and Stiletto Jill | 3 days ago Back in the day, a side chick knew her place. She concerned herself only with her A and B situation with her unavailable man, not seeking attention from strangers by leaking texts, photos and proof of their dalliances. But thats not how it goes down in 2013. Internet fame is a drug and now we can add one more name to the ever growing list of alleged side chicks who blast on the…

The Seahawks defeated the Redskins 24-14. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci) Good morning from the desert. Bill Barnwell of Grantland provides an interesting look at the four young quarterbacks from 2012 in Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick. Barnwell takes a look at the numbers and predicts what quarterback will be the most successful in 2013. Barnwell gives Griffin the nod over Wilson as the most productive quarterback of the four in 2012. But who will be the best of the four in 2013. Heres Barnwells answer. Barnwell: Im going to rule out Kaepernick because he has likely lost his best receiver, Michael Crabtree, for most of the season.
