How does this rookie QB class compare to 1983's class?

You have 3 outstanding qb's with Luck, RG3 and Wilson.

2 have won 10 games their rookie year thats only happened 8 times.

NFL record for passing yds for a rookie broken by Luck. Wilson needs I think 2 td's to tie Manning.

Colts are the only team since the merger to go from top pick to the playoffs. Again that's off the top of my head.

I mean this is a very impressive group right here.

He needs one to tie, two to break the record, I think it's right up there with 83

Don't forget Kirk Cousins either! Stepped right in when RGIII has been injured. Tannyhill hasn't played bad at times, and well Cleveland's Weeden is still better than anyone in Kansas City. (OK bearly! I saw that Colt McCoy was in there yesterday for Cleveland.)

I'm worried about Luck's interceptions at tmes. However, I can't help to think about Terry Bradshaw. 4 Super Bowl Rings and his TD's=Int's for his career! And the Colts still have a VERY young team on both sides of the ball. They still have a lot of needs come draft time.

I think in 5 years we will still be talking about how good this QB class was!

That's because the team wanted Luck and wasn't willing to invest time in helping their back-up QB succeed when it was decided they didn't wanted Peyton anymore.

The Colts success has very little to do with Luck. Put any QB with decent talent and a coach willing to help him succeed and you would have gotten the same result. It's a shame some of you Panthers fans actually believe a team rises and falls on the playing of a QB? It's no wonder the media is have so much fun blaming every lose on your QB.

Pretty foolish statement.

It's hard to say. The NFL is so soft now, it's easy (well, "less difficult" at least) for guys to come in and dominate early.

Still think the 83 class is better, especially with the rule changes these days.

Granted, I;m an old codger.

You're so right! When are people going to realize the backup left guard has more to do with losing than the QB?
