There is no dispute: The past few years for the Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, and San Francisco 49ers have been a struggle.  But this year, a group of rookies have swept in and rescued these damsels in distress.  Here is my list of the “Rookie Superheroes” halfway through the season.

NFL 2011 Midseason Awards

Halfway through the NFL season, nobody is surprised about who is sitting atop the NFL standings, but the Green Bay Packers may be the only thing not surprising about the NFL this season. Teams like the 49ers and Bengals are on top, the Patriots are fading, and the “Dream Team” Eagles are a mess.

And even without Peyton Manning, who would’ve guessed the Indianapolis Colts would be running away with the race for the first overall draft pick and the rights to Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck?

NFL Quarterbacks Off to Record-setting Starts

First four weeks have featured most passing yards in NFL history
<br />

— by Mark Ross

This just in: the NFL has become a pass-happy league. And while that may not seem like breaking news, a closer look at early-season numbers tell the story. The first four weeks of the season featured the four highest single-week passing-yardage totals in NFL history, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

The highest single-week passing-yardage total belongs to Week 2 (7,946 passing yards), followed by Week 4 (7,886), Week 1 (7,842) and Week 3 (7,772).

You knew that Tom Brady and Drew Brees would be leading the NFL in passing yardage, even this early in the season. But come on, who would’ve guessed that Cam Newton would be third? Darren McFadden as the NFL’s rushing leader so far is probably not a stretch, but Ben Tate fifth, less than 100 yards behind and ahead of Adrian Peterson?
