RGIII - NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month [September]

Robert Griffin III (RG3, RGIII, Bob Griffin) is your Offensive Rookie of the Month for September 2012. It's not surprising at all. Griffin has far and away been the most exciting and productive rookie, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

Griffin, for the month, is 86-of-124, tied for second place in the league in completion percentage at 69.4%. His 1,070 passing yards has him ranked 10th in the league, and he's the 3rd player (only because Tannehill played earlier in the day on Sunday) in NFL history to post 1,000+ yards through the first 4 weeks of a rookie season. His 8.6 yards per pass rank him 3rd in the NFL. He's tied for 23rd in the league with 4 passing touchdowns on the season, but only has 1 INT through the first 4 games. He's 5th in the NFL in passes of 20+ yards, and tied for 10th in the league in passes of 40+ yards. Tied for 11th MOST sacked in the NFL. Ranked 4th in the league in QB Rating. He also ranks 18th in the league in rushing yards. He is tied for the league lead in rushing touchdowns with 4. He also hasn't had a run longer than 19 yards, so his stats aren't too inflated by a long run.

Griffin is also tied for the team record in rushing touchdowns in a season by a quarterback, and holds the team record for rushing yards in a season by a quarterback, and is only 4 games into his rookie campaign.

The magnetic Griffin has captivated fans all around the league, and it's very difficult not to like him. He has displayed poise, leadership, tenacity, toughness, and a knack for the game so far in his brief career. He has shown every game that he's willing to bail on the open run for a big pass, and not bail on the pass for a big run unless it's what the team absolutely needs. Griffin repeatedly shows his ability to make the play that best suits the team, and has twice impressed in no-huddle, hurry-up offense.

Congratulations, RGIII.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
