Seattle, with Wilson (Rookie), have clinched a playoff spot
Cincy, with Dalton (Soph), have clinched a playoff spot (in back to back seasons)
Indy, with Luck (Rookie), have clinched a playoff spot (coming off a 2-14 season)
Washington, with RG3 (Rookie), can win the division with a win over Dallas on Sunday
Minnesota, with Ponder (Soph) has a win and your in game against the Packers at home.
San Fran, with Kaperneck (Soph) have clinced a playoff spot (although, it's hard to give him a bulk of the credit when Smith played a large role).

Pretty remarkable that potentially six of the 12 playoff teams will be fielding a starting QB in his Rookie or Sophmore season.

I think this sets up well for Teams like Greenbay, Atlanta, Denver, and New England in getting to the conf. champ. and eventually the superbowl. Each of those teams have a good amount of postseason experience from thier QB postion (even if Matty Ice has been Ice cold in the playoffs)

These young players are really making a name for themselves. (helped out by the NFL rules changes over the past few years) BTW someone is missing from this list..I can't quite put my finger on the name but its, its right there in black and white... Oh well it'll come to me.


OBTW hats off to Andy Dalton for leading the Cincinnati Bengals to back to back playoff appearances for the 1st time since the 1980's. That kid has really turned the fortunes of the franchise around. Great pick. Him and Andrew Luck will be the next Brady, Manning rivalry for years to come in the AFC while RG3 and Russell Wilson will fight it out for the top dog in the NFC.

I thought you lost a bet and were supposed to "not talk football" after the Saints-Panthers game, under any username.

Makes you really hate how JR and Hurney have run this team. Even Roethlisberger, Ryan, and Flacco were a success from the get go. Yet Cam, who is just as good as the rest, flounders with our average team. Sad.
