Quote of the day
"It was one of those things. Everything happens for a reason and if it was meant to be, I wouldn't have fumbled the ball at the goal line. But I have no explanation for it." -- Philly QB Michael Vick
Robert Griffin III has been getting most of the rookie accolades this season – and deservedly so. But don’t go to sleep on Andrew Luck just yet. In four games, Luck is averaging a tad over 300 passing yards per game, 26 rushing yards, and 2 TDs (passing or rushing). More importantly, Indy is now 2-2. having just beaten the Packers. Last year, the Colts won their second game on Dec. 22nd. And, for that matter, the Redskins have only won twice as well.
Of course, the big news for RG3 is not his statistical comparison with Luck, but the “mild concussion” he suffered yesterday. He did manage to complete 2˝ quarters, however, and was decidedly contained, garnering less than 100 yards passing and rushing combined. Of course, you never know how that game would have progressed. But even if he hadn’t been concussed, he seemed to be coming back to earth statistically, at least for the time being.
