    Oh man, Shanahan is realizing what a few us realized awhile back. Robert Griffin isn't a good enough quarterback to start in the NFL. Sure he is an amazing athlete, sure he has a good arm. But so did Vince Young, where is he now anyway?

    Now that the 2 quarterbacks at Baylor that followed RGnegative3 have done pretty much the same thing, (except rushing stats) is everyone ready to admit that this dude has always been fools gold? Or is it going to take some more embarrassment from him on the field to convince people?

    Tyrann Mathieu's heisman got robbed. It's been a few seasons and no one has even come close to electrifying college football like the Badger has.

    I gotta hand it to you, my man. You've been railing against RGIII since his days at Baylor, and it turns out, you were right all along. The Badger was definitely robbed. We'll never see anyone that plays football like he did in CFB ever again.

    I think the Badger lost the Heisman b/c the failed drug test(s) and resulting missed game vs. Auburn in 2011. Damn shame. He deserved the award. If we gave him some touches on offense, he might've won anyway. Too bad, though, he was just too damn valuable on defense to risk it.

    It's amazing he's still alive after the other night, he had absolutely no help......it's been a rough couple of months for people who endorse Subway.

    What about Chip Kelly running the read option with the oft injured Sam Bradford in a preseason game no less and then bitching because he takes a hit?

    That hit on Bradford though was kind of dirty if you ask me, it's one thing if you run a read option where the qb is moving, or a regular option, but Bradford didn't move. Regardless it's football. You don't want your qb getting hit don't play them.

    I bit dirty but legal according to the rule because Bradford was in a position where he could have become a running. Kelly is an idiot for calling a read option. Unless he wants Mark Sanchez or Matt Barkley to be the starter

    his team/offensive line hates him just like the ex-baseball player that played for us.
