McNabb - 39 yards passing, L

Grossman - 305 yards passing, W

Suck on it, national media.

What the heck happened to Atlanta yesterday?  Two ace receivers, a hall of fame TE, and their RB goes over 100 yards.  Result: 12pts?!

What was the end result of the kickoff rule after the first weekend?

I think the TD's were a result of teams not focusing on coverage during the shortened off-season.

Can't wait for tonight to watch 2 games with Teams without a team I root for involved.

We are only two games in. He is 0 and 2 and thrown 4 interceptions, but I think I better start eating my crow when it comes to Cam Newton now. Where did his accuracy come from?

Let's see if he can still do it a few weeks from now when he can't sneak up on anyone.

With the first pick in the 2012, the Minnesota Vikings select...

I wish they would get the first pick, they're one of the very few terrible teams this year who would NOT be looking to draft a QB high. Thereby increasing the odds of a trade for the right to draft Andrew Luck. I want that kid in a Redskins uniform in the worst way.

Looks like he can still do it.  :-\

He'll be coming back down to earth soon enough.  He's not going to average 400 yards per game passing.

With what people are saying about Luck and what I've seen watching some Stanford games, if the Vikings really ended up with the first overall pick, they better draft Luck and then trade Ponder.

Actually, if you exclude the game he played in heavy rain he 's averaging 409 YPG already.  And that's against some pretty good defenses in the Cardinals, Packers, and Bears.  The rest of the Panthers schedule is no worse than what he's already faced. 

I think he could pass for 5,000 yards this season - he only needs about 300 yards per game from here on out to hit that.  To put that in perspective, I think Marino holds the single season passing yards record at 5,084.  I certainly don't think he's still "sneaking up" on teams at this point.  Barring injuries or large amounts of rain, he sure looks on par for a record year.

That would be a dream come true for MN.  But you know where Luck's really going to end up...

Yeah, duh.  That was my point.  That number is guaranteed to drop.  No one has ever averaged 400 yards in a season, forget in a career.  Cam Newton isn't going to be the first.

Is anyone saying he WILL reach a 400 yard per game average?  ???  I don't think anyone expects that, so not sure who you are trying to convince.

I inferred from your posts that you still didn't think much of him, but maybe that wasn't your intent.  I think he's the real deal at this point.  If he sees a 25% decline in his output for the rest of the season, he could still break the single season passing record.  As a rookie.  That's incredible.
