ESPN: Don't Bet on the QB Sophomore Slump

Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson were historically great as rookies last season. So will they face the dreaded sophomore slump, or will they just continue to progress because they are really good players? As expected, the facts show the sophomore slump to be little more than an offseason talking point.

I dont know if slump is the right word. I think historically speaking when we see rookies with good seasons that slide off is more because of the adjustments made against them, due to the fact that there is more info out on these guys. Its now up to the QB and coaches to make there adjustments.

I think the one QB who is going to have to make the biggest adjustment is RG III. Hes going to have to stop running as much (considering hes able to run at that) and when he does, hes going to have to learn not to Michael Vick it every time.
