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.

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar
