Rookie of the Year
It is ridiculoust that Luck is even in the conversation with Griffin and Wilson
Griffin - 66.4% completion, 2,902 passing yards, 18 passing TDs, 4 INTs, 104.2 rating, 748 rushing yards, 6 rushing TDs
Wilson - 62.9% completion, 2,697 passing yards, 21 passing TDs, 9 INTs, 95.5 rating, 402 rushing yards, 3 rushing TDs
Luck - 54.6% completion, 3,978 passing yards, 20 passing TDs, 18 INTs, 75.5 rating, 233 rushing yards, 5 rushing TDs
There's more to it than just numbers.
Luck has led several fourth quarter comebacks.
I would agree that Griffin and Wilson deserve the award more...but to say Luck shouldn't even be in the conversation is outrageous.
All three have done wonders...taken some of the NFLs worst teams and made them all contenders in one season.
Luck will get more votes than he should...Griffin will be hurt by missing some games. I think RGIII is the best of the trio but he may not end up winning it.
I would like to add that I would take any one of them and fellow rookie Ryan Tannehill over what we've got right now.
RGIII and Wilson both have the benefit of elite running backs. Marshawn Lynch and Alfred Morris are behind only Adrian Peterson in rushing yards. If either of them had to pass as much as Luck does, they would likely have similar stats.
Luck is definitely in the conversation, I'm not saying he should win (I would go RGIII, Luck, then Wilson) it but the turnaround he's made with that team is pretty impressive.
There is no doubt that Luck is a stud QB, a leader, a franchise QB. And it benefits him greatly that he has to throw the ball. His Int's will be reduced each year, and hopefully he gets to enjoy the great benefit of a strong run game.
This year, this rookie year, Griffin is fantastic, better than the rest.
I think Luck and Griffin will be competing for the best QB in the league for many years to come. This year, Griffin is better.
