Not surprisingly, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton avoided saying anything too specific about whether he'll wind up with some extra carries in the playoffs.
Playoff losing streaks by NFL quarterbacks since 1950, according to STATS:
Since the advent of free agency in the early 1990s, it's a common story around the NFL: A player gets drafted by a team and puts in his best years there, connecting with the fans and the city and leaving his own indelible mark with the franchise, to say nothing of a Super Bowl ring or two.
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is a game-changer, a player who not only changes games but also has changed the game of football with his combination of speed, smarts and skill. He is Randall Cunningham. He is Steve Young. He is Brett Favre. He is all of those things.
A win in Dallas on Thanksgiving, another over the New York Giants on "Monday Night Football," and suddenly Robert Griffin III is a national phenomenon — a rookie with the NFL's top-selling jersey, a name politicians love to drop. It can happen quickly, can't it? Almost as quickly as Griffin can run the 40. In his case, just 12 games into his pro career.
Running quarterbacks were oxymorons in the NFL, as curious a term as "blocking offensive linemen." Running was the nature of each back in the backfield -- whether he was a quarter, half or full -- until a metamorphism began about 75 years ago.

What happened to Steve Francis? It depends on who you ask.
"Kaepernick reminds me a lot of myself. When the game is on the line, he's going to use his legs. Those are the plays that break a defense's back," said Cunningham, who held the record for career yards rushing by a quarterback until Michael Vick broke the mark. "It's a fun part of the game and a needed part of the game now."
"It's one thing to know a quarterback isn't going to run out of the pocket; you can rush three (defenders)," Cunningham said.
