The media "ball washes" someone every year. Right now it seems to be Andrew Luck.
How many time did John Madden work Brett Farve's name into his play by play? It seemed like very 4th work out of his mouth was about Farve. (Even if he wasn't covering one of his games.) He said it so many time, it got to be a drinking game. LOL Every time Madden said Brett Farve's name, college students all over the nation were taking a shot!
Last year, the media tried to make the Luck vs RGIII but that has seemed to die down. (Maybe because RGIII seems to be more fragile?)
Maybe next year it's Johnny Football.
These folks in the media are full of ish. They wanted a Cam vs. Luck draft because they saw Cam as this exceptionally gifted young black QB who they didn't care for, for the same reason. They saw Luck as his best challenger but didn't get what they wanted in the 2011 because Luck stayed in school. So, they simply recreated one with Luck vs RG III when he came out of nowhere and beat Luck for the Heisman. Luck was always the media's "choosen QB." And, they knew RG III was fragile from his college days. Remember, they choose these QBs based on their Scouting Reports and some of cases, special word of mouth. They are well aware of what these QBs can and cannot do. RG III fragility was well documented.
Even I knew about his leg issues when I did my background check on him.
