LOS ANGELES - The Heisman Trophy that seemed to be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck's to lose may be lost Saturday night to a Baylor quarterback. Momentum in recent days has shifted swiftly and favorably toward Robert Griffin III. Heismanpundit.com, a site run by former Southern California assistant sports information director Chris Huston that tracks college football's most coveted award, has predicted a victory for Griffin. In a final survey of 13 Heisman voters, Griffin received eight first-place votes to four for Luck.

ATLANTIC CITY - They sat on opposite ends of the stage, the divide symbolic of the awkwardness of the situation. But Andrew Luck and Archie Manning - here to accept awards from the Maxwell Football Club - insisted Friday that neither was uncomfortable even though the Stanford quarterback is widely expected to replace Manning's son in Indianapolis. Now, if Peyton Manning were here instead of his father . . . "I don't know if it's awkward to begin with," said Luck, winner of the 75th Maxwell Award as the collegiate player of the year.

THOSE PREFERRING to wait to grab their quarterback have some delightful options. While the usual suspects are still in play (Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning), a couple of kids are starting to become fantasy relevant. Sam Bradford? Maybe as bye-week replacement. Blake Bortles, Jaguars: Love his weapons, and he had a strong preseason. Has played his way into a starter in 10- and 12-team leagues. Tom Brady, Patriots: Suspended the first four games, which has dropped his average draft position in CBS Sports leagues to 57. In ESPN leagues, it's 60. Drew Brees, Saints: Even though his numbers continue to decline from 2011, when he had 5,476 yards and 46 TDs, they have not slid enough to knock him out of the top-seven in fantasy.

STANFORD'S first win of the season against a ranked team helped Andrew Luck and the Cardinal move up in the BCS standings. While LSU (8-0), Alabama (8-0) and Oklahoma State (8-0) remained locked into the top three spots in the standings released last night, Stanford moved up two places to fourth after beating Southern California, 56-48, in triple overtime. Boise State (7-0) slipped a spot to fifth, while Clemson (7-1) fell from fifth to 11th after its first loss. LSU and Alabama will play Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for first place and the inside track to the BCS national championship game.

THE STRONGEST argument in favor of everything that you have witnessed over the last month came about 12 minutes into Howie Roseman's question and answer session on Thursday night. After spending much of the news conference extolling the blue-collar virtues of the man he selected with the No. 2 pick in the draft, the Eagles' football operations chief made an important point when he noted that a team that finds a long-term solution at quarterback does so for a very long term. "It's not a decision just for the moment," Roseman said after pointing out that a team that finds a long-term answer at quarterback can go through multiple cycles of building around that position.

OK, SO NICK Foles starting on Sunday isn't official yet, but if he's not out there, Michael Vick won't be the only one having his head examined this week. Anybody who watched Vick take hit after hit behind an offensive line that looked like five wheels of Swiss cheese knew it was only a matter of time before Foles started. Since 1970, the Eagles have drafted 17 quarterbacks. Four, if you include Foles, have started a game as rookies. Donovan McNabb, Randall Cunningham and John Reaves are the others.

After a bit of an exile, a former Eagles quarterack has finally hooked on with an NFL team. No, not Donovan McNabb . On Wednesday, the Houston Texans signed Jeff Garcia , 41, whose last address was care of the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks, to be their No. 3 behind rookie T.J. Yates - default starter with Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart out - and 36-year-old Jake Delhomme . Houston signed Delhomme last week...

AS CARSON WENTZ was becoming the 11th rookie quarterback since 1960 to throw for at least 250 yards in a season opener, his fantasy relevancy was being considered. Those on the 250-plus list whom he joined range from great (Peyton Manning) to star (Cam Newton, Andrew Luck) to scrub (Geno Smith). Manning is the only one to win a Super Bowl. Jim Kelly played in four. Fran Tarkenton in three. Mark Sanchez nearly got the Jets there. Twice. Sam Bradford? He's with his third team in three years.

There are many ways for an NFL team to protect a rookie quarterback, and make no mistake: Unless that rookie quarterback is Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, or Andrew Luck, an NFL team should be doing all it can to make the young player's transition to the league as smooth as possible. A team can implement a more conservative game plan, to lessen the demands on the kid. It can keep an extra receiver or two in to block on pass plays. It can trust its defense and special teams to tip each game's balance in its favor.

INDIANAPOLIS - Opponents will find ways to work the ball downfield against the Eagles. Andrew Luck put together some short, quick throws that worked Saturday night, just not enough of them to turn the tide in a 33-23 Eagles preseason victory. The Colts also hit big on a screen that turned the Birds' aggressiveness against them. But if it's safe to infer anything from the preseason, we're going to go on ahead and infer this: The days of opening the NFL's defensive rankings and automatically going to the bottom of the list to find the Eagles seem to be over.

LET'S CONSIDER, "What if?" As in, "What if the Eagles stood pat for the 2016 draft? What if they never made the two big trades and simply drafted 13th?" And, so: A retro mock draft. It's impossible to completely put the horse back in the barn. The team's salary structure was altered the day it began delousing itself of the Chip Kelly era, trading Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, DeMarco Murray and Mark Sanchez for picks. Its needs changed, too, some of which were filled before the draft; Sanchez and Maxwell, for instance.

WELL, IT IS DONE! The beloved Eagles picked Carson Wentz from North Dakota State with the second selection in the NFL draft to be their quarterback of the future. They gave up almost a king's ransom in draft choices to get the second pick. Was it worth it? I'm afraid the answer is no. I am afraid, because I hope with all my heart that Wentz turns out to be, if not a Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, at least a Drew Brees or Philip Rivers. I hope I am wrong because if the actuarial tables are right, Wentz could be the Eagles' quarterback for the rest of my lifetime, and, Carson, if you see this, winning the Super Bowl is on my bucket list.

NAVY QUARTERBACK Keenan Reynolds is leading the ESPN/Nissan online Heisman fan voting by a large margin. And he's not even on the ballot. Well, he is. But he isn't. An explanation: Reynolds has received 37 percent of all votes, putting him far ahead of Alabama running back Derrick Henry, who has 23 percent. Yet, Reynolds is no longer among the seven players with links that allow fans to vote for them. This, of course, doesn't sit well with the Naval Academy, which tweeted at @NavyAthletics: "Why was Keenan Reynolds taken off the ESPN Heisman House Voting?

EAGLES FANS all have opinions on who should be the starting quarterback next season. There's the "anybody but Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez" camp. Others are praying for Tim Tebow. Still others are hoping the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick ends up in midnight green. No one has mentioned Matt Hasselbeck. OK, so he's not the answer. But, he's doing some pretty impressive things in Indianapolis. On Sunday, the 40-year-old, 17-year veteran, threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Colts to a 25-12 win the Bucs.

AT THIS POINT last season, DeMarco Murray was consistently being mentioned in the same sentence as Hall of Famer Jim Brown. This year, he's more likely to be in the same conversation as Charlie Brown. Murray dominated for the Cowboys in 2014 when he led the NFL in rushing on the strength of an incredible start that saw him break Brown's record of 100-yard games to begin a season. Brown had 100 yards in the first six games in 1958. Murray started last season with eight. It was like Daniel Murphy hitting home runs for the Mets early in the postseason.
