    Pat Yasinskas

    All the talk about Drew Brees' quest for a new contract that will make him the highest-paid player in the NFL got me thinking about quarterback salaries and average per year. It remains very likely that, sometime between now and Monday afternoon, ...

  9. Heisman no longer bad omen for QBs

    Pat Yasinskas

    There was a time -- like pretty much the last 50 years -- when a Heisman Trophy wasn't a very good thing for a quarterback to have on his resume as he entered the NFL. When Baylor's Robert Griffin III gets taken early in next week's NFL draft, he ...

  13. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    With Carolina's Cam Newton, there's been shock, awe and a lot of losing. With "the other" rookie quarterback that's been starting all season, there simply has been a lot of winning. That's Cincinnati's Andy Dalton, who, very quietly, has his team...
