Cam Newton is an undroppable in most fantasy leagues, and it’s probably a good thing, too, considering most impetuous fantasy enthusiasts would at least consider dropping him after another disappointing game in Week 5. Like you’re sitting around, drinking a few beers, watching Dexter after the Sunday night game and thinking, “(expletive) it, I’m done with this guy.”
Each week, we’ll take a look at how Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III stack up against the 2011 breakout performance of Cam Newton. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck led his team to a 30-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers. After a slow offensive start in the first half, the Colts scored 19 straight points and capped off their comeback with a 4-yard Reggie Wayne touchdown to take the lead. The rookie QB also rushed for 24 yards and earned his first rushing touchdown of the season. Three may be Luck’s number. This is his third consecutive two touchdown game and his third 300-plus passing yard game. The Colts are now at .500 with a 2-2 record. […]

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

Week 3 is nearly in the books, how are you feeling? We still have a great Monday night game left, but let’s look back at the wek that was.
Each week, we’ll take a look at how Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III stack up against the 2011 breakout performance of Cam Newton. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– Reminiscent of last week’s comeback against the Minnesota Vikings, Andrew Luck led the Colts on a 48-yard drive in the 4th quarter to set up what many thought would be a game-winning field goal. Unfortunately the Colts’ defense could not keep the Jaguars from scoring a touchdown in the final minute of the game. Jacksonville takes the win, 22-17. Cam Comparison: Cam Newton and Andrew Luck (and RG3) are tied when comparing wins and losses, but Newton still leads Luck in total yards after Week 3, 1,012 to 846. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Robert Griffin III vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– The […]

Despite a rally in the fourth quarter, RG3 and team fell […]
Michael Shanahan once again went with Alfred Morris … what are you trying to do to us Shanny? Sometimes I feel like Bobby “The Brain” Heenan pre-Bash at the Beach in 1996, trying to warn everybody of Hulk Hogan.
But dang, that RG3 can play, too, right? More on the Redskins in a minute, let’s get to it.
When it comes to fashion, our NFL stars might not go all out like their NBA counterparts. If the September issue of GQ is any indication, however, we are going to see more style off the field this season. Here’s the best fashion from Week 1:
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson is expected to miss three to four weeks. Is C.J. Spiller really worth targeting?
Each week, we’ll take a look at how Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III stack up against the 2011 breakout performance of Cam Newton. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– In Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, Andrew Luck completed 50% of his passes and threw three interceptions, but still managed to pass for 309 yards. The Bears won, 41-21. It is only week one and Andrew Luck has all the tools to improve his playmaking ability and keep the Colts in the game. Game highlight below. The Verdict: Compared to Cam Newton’s debut the offensive line made all the difference. See for yourself.

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.
Doug Williams became the first post-merger African-American quarterback selected in round one of the NFL draft in 1978 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers grabbed the Grambling State signal caller with the 17th pick.
Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III were drafted No. 1 and No. 2 overall, respectively, in the past two NFL drafts.
Expectations for Andrew Luck are high, but can he match Cam Newton 2011 season.
Michael Vick is on record supporting comparisons between himself and Robert Griffin III. RG3’s Washington Redskins teammate, London Fletcher, agrees with that assessment and adds one more player to the evaluation.
