Barack Obama

Robert Griffin III

Since the Redskins lost last week, Obama was supposed to lose the popular vote (if you believe in that kind of voodoo). Expectations Was supposed to be a wide receiver. Or a smile model. Seriously! Best smile in the NFL, you guys!
B.O. ...oh. Initials Cool sounding nickname. Almost like a robot. "RG3." Neat!
Ran on a "Forward!" strategy. Plan Strategy: move forward by running. Also: passing.
A little less now than in week one, but…sure. Gives Hope? A little less now than in week one, but…sure.
“By itself, the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward.” – Acceptance Speech, November 7, 2012 Remarkable Quote About Work “This moment right here, it's unbelievably believable. It's unbelievable because in the moment, we're all amazed when great things happen. It's believable because great things only happen with hard work.” – Heisman Trophy Acceptance Speech
Probably getting yelled at by someone. Also, preparing for his 2nd term. January Plans Could be in the playoffs. But most likely preparing for his 2nd term.
Yes! Friends With Jay-Z & Bruce Springsteen? Nah.
HA! Will Win Super Bowl In 4 Years? ...er...maybe?

The winner is

Washington Redskins v Pittsburgh Steelers
Robert Griffin III
6 out of 8

RG3 Wins!
