The Rookie Of The Year battle last season did not disappoint as the two top quarterbacks in last season's Draft turned in remarkable numbers while advancing rheir teams into playoffs.
Now with the rookie butterflies out of the way comes the very important second season. The Redskins and Seahawks are both hoping their starting QBs can avoid the dreaded sophomore jinx.
It's when a player has a terrific rookie year and then flames out the following season.
RG3 ended last season with an injury, but will be back next season at 100 percent. Prior to him being drafted the Redskins were fighting just to avoid the cellar in the NFC East.
Griffin ran the spread option successfully and helped the Redskins reach the playoffs for the first time since 2007, when they lost, ironically enough, to the Seattle Seahawks.
Russel Wilson was a beast in a small body. He may have lacked to prototypical size, but he sure knew how to run that offense to near perfection. He kept the Seahawks in a battle with the 49ers for the NFC West, which was decided as the season concluded.
It still remains a debate as to which quarterback deserved the Rookie of the Year award more, and despite RG3 being the winner, Wilson surely made his claim too.
Now comes the preparations for next season and how opposing teams will defend against both Griffin and Wilson, now that they have an entire years worth of film to study.
This will place an extra strain on both QBs to perform well again in 2013. Do both have the ability to have another big season in 2013? Certainly. Can both avoid a second season letdown? That remains to be seen. One thing is for certain, it's going to be fun to watch next season.
