Mount Rushmore of quarterbacks

By

With Peyton Manning closing in on becoming the all time touchdown leader in the NFL the debate of who is the greatest quarterback of all talk will spark. So might, as well get in on it, but my rankings will be different. They won’t be judged on stats alone but more on there impact on the game. Meaning if they were innovators, influenced future quarterbacks or brought more eyes to the game, it is not based off top quarterbacks of all time. George Washington: Roger Staubach. He is part of the reason why the Cowboys are so popular the way they are today. Staubach was arguably the first quarterback to be idolized by millions. Names before him such as Bart Starr, Joe Namath and Johnny Unitas could be argued but it was Staubach who brought the name recognition to the Cowboys that gets this honor. He played with the Cowboys during a five-season stretch in which they played in the Super Bowl....

Peyton still reigns, but Luck is on his way

By

Three early first half touchdowns by Peyton Manning to Julius Thomas put the Denver Broncos safely in the lead, but Andrew Luck continues to prove he’s never out of it. Another season, another Andrew Luck comeback. Peyton still reigns, but Luck is on his way to greatness. A number of people shook their heads  and wondered why the Indianapolis Colts decided to let Peyton Manning walk away, but it’s obvious now that Andrew Luck represents the Colts future. He might not be the superstar Peyton Manning is right now, but Luck’s starting to show signs that he is undoubtedly the future of the NFL. Luck was given an almost impossible task of replacing the great Peyton Manning and has done a pretty damn good job doing so. He took an ordinary Colts teams to the playoffs his first two years, won the AFC South in 2013 and won a spectacular playoff game in comeback fashion. It...

5 greatest comebacks in NFL history

By

5. St. Louis Cardinals – 25: It was the Cardinals final season in St. Louis before becoming the Arizona Cardinals. The team finished 7-8 and missed the playoffs in the midst of a players’ strike. By Week 9 things were back to normal when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to town. Led by Neil Lomax the Cardinals were down 25 points in the third quarter when Lomax connected on three touchdown passes. They would also recover a fumble to complete the 31-28 comeback. 4. Buffalo Bills – 26 Points: 1997 was the beginning of the end for Hall of Fame players’ Jim Kelly, Andre Reed, Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith as quarterback Todd Collins took over the reins. The Bills would miss the playoffs for only the second time in ten years but the bright spot was the second-largest comeback in NFL regular season history when they overturned a 26-0 deficit. The Bills trailed the...

Welcome to the future of the NFL quarterback

By

The future of the NFL is upon us with quarterbacks like Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton as examples. Here’s a look at the future and the five franchise QB’s in the NFL. 5.  Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins : It’s no doubt why RG3 made this list with his spectacular play-making ability. His rookie season he put up 3,200 passing yards with 20 passing TD’s and only 5 int’s, and adding 815 rushing yards with 7 rushing TD’s as well. While he had a lackluster 2013 we will just chop that up to his injury at the end of 2012 season. We can fully expect him to bounce back to his peak form in 2014. 4. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers : Next on the list is Colin Kaepernick. While he was not drafted highly like RG3 he is just as spectacular to watch drafted 36th overall in the 2011 NFL draft. He replaced the injured Alex Smith in 2012 and lead the...

Jim Irsay doesn’t belong in the NFL

By

Indianapolis Colts CEO Jim Irsay just showed another example that money can’t buy class or decency. Released earlier,  Irsay issued a statement of thanks to those who are supporting him during this time, but no one should support what Irsay did.  After Jim Irsay’s arrest, a source told the Indy Star the Colts owner is a “sick, sick man. There’s no place for a sick, sick man in the NFL. Especially one who owns 100% of the Colts, a franchise valued by Forbes as the 11th most valuable in the league at $1.6 billion. It’s a sad story, as anyone who has these type of issues can tell you, But Tony Kornheiser from PTI stated publicly  “He should be suspended immediately, and he should be suspended indefinitely.” Why should he be treated like anyone else who involved in the NFL? As recently as last October, Irsay stated on Twitter of his 15 years of...
