There’s a report going around today that the Colts have notified Andrew Luck that they won’t go back on their “Suck for Luck” campaign of 2011 and will indeed take him with the first overall pick. That would put to rest whatever iota of doubt that Jim Irsay created with his jackass Twitter riddles. It also means that a disturbing amount of Redskins fans need not despair that their RGIII vanity plates were acquired for naught.
But don’t rejoice just yet, because a couple scouts and reporters are suddenly trying to stoke the impression that RGIII is, in fact, A ME-FIRST GLORY BOY! Someone alert Gregg Easterbrook!
He’s got a little bit of a selfish streak, too. Everybody was laying on Cam, but for some reason this guy has become gloves off. He doesn’t treat anybody good.” Another scout also questioned the way Griffin deals with people.
He didn’t return my voicemail! HIS CHARACTER IS DEFICIENT! Of course, Cam Newton had plenty of these concerns last year, and he seemed to do all right. Nevertheless, the last-minute smear campaign is on!
I’ve heard these rumblings too. RT @evansilva: Quotes from scouts on RG3: “He’s got a little bit of a selfish streak.”

Peter King salutes your hard work in piling on, Albert Breer. No need to volunteer damaging information when you can wait for an anonymous scout to do it first then echo the same remarks. Lofty restraint-ology 101.
