“He’s not only the face of this franchise; he is this franchise. He gives them hope.” Deion Sanders on Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, who threw for 246 yards and one touchdown in the 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens

“Today they proved that they have other ways of winning ballgames, and that’s what makes you dangerous in the playoffs.” Marshall Faulk on the Indianapolis Colts’ 27-23 victory over the Tennessee Titans despite quarterback Andrew Luck throwing two interceptions

“He’s the key. When he’s healthy, they’re a complete football team and very dangerous.” Steve Mariucci on New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who had 67 yards receiving and one touchdown in the 52-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints

“This is the difference for the Dallas Cowboys.” Michael Irvin on Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who rushed for 53 yards and one touchdown in the 20-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals

“He has stepped from amongst the crowd and placed himself in a category amongst himself for the MVP.” Deion Sanders on Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns in the 21-14 victory over the Chicago Bears

“The absence of Greg Jennings has helped you discover Randall Cobb in many ways…He is a four-down player.” Michael Irvin on Green Bay Packers wide receiver/kick returner Randall Cobb, who had 102 yards receiving against the Detroit Lions

“The Chicago Bears defense is not getting the turnovers that they got earlier in the season and they need to help that offense.” Michael Irvin on the Chicago Bears, who have lost four of their last five games

“I believe what they’ve done in making the change at offensive coordinator, making this a more explosive offense and a more explosive team, will make the difference in the playoffs.” Michael Irvin on the 11-2 Atlanta Falcons

“Based on what they are trying to do, Jacquizz Rodgers fits the system right now and Michael Turner would suit this offense better if he was coming in and he was the changeup.” Marshall Faulk on Atlanta Falcons running backs Jacquizz Rodgers and Michael Turner

“He threw [the ball] 51 times for 381 yards. So what does that really mean for Mike Vick? It’s over.” Deion Sanders on Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles, who will start the rest of the season instead of Michael Vick
