Quarterbacks On, Quarterbacks Off

Sunday represented the first full day of NFL Football since January. And this season, all eyes were on the quarterbacks, many of whom were new to their team rosters. Robert Griffin III (known as RG3) in Washington, Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, Peyton Manning in Denver. And while Griffin impressed, Luck was average, and Manning dusted himself off from a season ending neck injury, there were other quarterbacks whose prospects for the 2012 season went down in a hurry.

For example, John Skelton was impressive during the preseason, but was carted off the field with a right ankle injury during the fourth quarter while his Arizona Cardinals shut down the Seattle Seahawks. Two players crashed into one another, then landed on Skelton’s leg, giving the reins back to Kevin Kolb, who ended up becoming the hero. Then there was Jake Locker of the Tennessee Titans who, for some apparent reason, tried to re-imagine his role as an offensive tackle, ultimately leaving the game with a left shoulder injury. Rodger Saffold, playing for the St. Louis Rams, endured the most frightening injury, crumpling under the weight of safety John Wendling of the Detroit Lions. Fortunately, Saffold could move his arms and legs, but his neck was definitely hurt.

With all eyes on the new season of professional football, most quarterbacks were on, but others were not. We might even argue it was an ultimately strange day in the NFL, since both Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Drew Brees of New Orleans were shut down in their own stadiums.
