He may have a lot of turnovers, but he also has his team in the play-offs. Not denigrating RGIII in any way, my man-crush is full on. At the same time, Luck is no slouch and has been carrying the Colts in the same way RGIII has carried the Skins. A break here or there for either and the records of the two teams could easily be reversed.

Bottom line in this league and, particularly for QB's, is wins. Luck may turn the ball over occasionally, but he wins. Can't take that away from him.

I, for one, would love to see a regularly scheduled Luck v. Griffin Superbowl. Do that, and both make it to the HOF.

Re: Around the NFL ... Week 13 edition

As an aside, can you imagine RGIII with a defense comparable to Seattle's? We would be 12-0.

I deeply envy their PED taking CB's.

He's good when he wants to be good. It's amazing to see how good players play when they want something. No way would I ever bring that guy here to this team. This is the type of player that Vinny Ceratto would go get. The guy who wanted to get paid, not the player who would do his best to be the best he could be. DeSean simply isn't that guy and the numbers show that. I mean, the guy quit on the team when he didn't get his contract. Got his contract, and still didn't do squat.

No thanks. I'll pass no matter how "good" he can be.

My Defensive wish list to Santa:

Chicago's Safeties
Seattle's Corners
Cleveland's DT's
Houston's DE's
Id Keep Skins LB's

Then lets roll.

We need blocking WR's in this offense and PG and JM fit the bill well. Throw in his injury history and I am just not impressed.

Don't get me wrong, I think Jackson is a good WR - not as good as he thinks he is and not worth what the Eagles paid him. I just don't see him being a good fit here for what they would have to pay him. Again, I think we have cheaper solid quality guys down the depth chart. We have to many other holes to pay him what he would want and to be our slot reciever/PR.
Agreed. I certainly wasn't arguing that we ought to go all Vinny on him and sign him, just that he would do what Banks does, but better. I'm not big on bringing any eagle players in, not worth the stink.

They're a lock for 3-13 on a 12-game losing streak.


I was at a 1-year old's birthday party with my kids this weekend and the Eagles fans were doing their stupid E-A-G-L-E-S chant and getting angry at everyone else (Ravens and Redskins fans). It's sad, yet so amusing this year.

C'mon, it was a baby party.

The excuse I got (in my face) when I shouted 31-6 as he was trash-taking the Ravens fan was "Well, the Redskins were so bad for so long they're bound to get lucky once".

Yeah. OK.

These two franchises are going to flip courses for a decade or so. The Eagles are going to be in complete dismantle and rebuild mode. The Skins will be perennial contenders.

No joke. It is a magical time for young QB's.

I watched the Indy game yesterday. With all his pass attempts he's going have int's. My impression was they're putting a lot on his plate throwing it as much as they do. He threw a lot of bad balls as I would expect him to, but he also made a ton of plays too. I think he gets the nod for ROY because Indy was pathetic last year and now they're on track of a wild card.

Re: Around the NFL ... Week 13 edition

I didn't see the Jets yesterday but Sanchez threw 3 picks in 20 attempts? He REALLY needs a change of scenery.

I'd say vick could be in Buffalo or Minnesota. Apparently they are already getting past ponder up there. Knew that was coming, he was a bust from day 1
