We're approaching the slowest part of the NFL offseason. The draft is behind us, and only OTAs remain until the six weeks
or so of a football-less summer gives way to training camps in late July. It's also the time when fans all share something
they tenuously hold onto once the actual 2012 nike nfl jerseys football begins: hope.
There is no class distinction in May and June. All teams are created equal, all have a legitimate claim to the next Lombardi
Trophy -- except, of course.
They don't. But that's the coping mechanism we all use to get through this part of the calendar. Hope also explains how,
for the last two months, the NFL's top-selling jerseys belong to four players who have yet to take a snap with their
respective teams: Peyton Manning,nfl jerseys by nike Tim Tebow, Robert Griffin III and
Andrew Luck. At No. 5, finally, we see a name that we can envision in his game-day uniform if only because, you know, he's
donned it on an actual game day: Eli Manning.
Popularity contests don't generate touchdowns, but the early reception for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III suggests
the Washington Redskins might have something specialnfl nike jerseys on their hands
-- at least from a marketing perspective.Robert Griffin III's name has his Redskins jersey flying off the racks. (Ben
Liebenberg/NFL) RG3 owns the league's top-selling jersey in May, beating out Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow in the process,
according to numbers from NFLShop.com, via The Washington Post.
RG3's jersey was third in sales from April 1 to May 28 (behind Manning and Tebow), but rookie jerseys didn't go on sale
until April 26. He's the leader here in May.Maybe it's the fact that RG3 prompted the first instance of "RNOB" (aka "Roman
numeral on back," per ESPN.com). It probably has more to wholesale nike jerseys do
with Washington's long-suffering fan base, which hasn't been entertained by a successful franchise quarterback in decades.
(Flashback: 'Skins fans went so far as to make Donovan McNabb's jersey the No. 2 seller during parts of 2010.)
If you're going to fork over greenbacks for an official jersey, you want to know the name on the back is in the team's
long-term plans. Thousands of residents within 100 miles of cheap 2012 nike nfl
the White House are waxing cars with burgundy rags emblazoned with the names of Heath Shuler, Gus Frerotte and Jason
Campbell. The hope in Washington is that this quarterback's name represents something different.When Cam Newton first joined
the NFL, he hoped to wear the No. 2 like he did at Auburn.
