Mr. Scot

Setting aside the "Newton vs Luck" stuff...

60 posts in this topic

Just based on stats alone, their total QBR rating is nearly identical but RG3's at 104 for the season while Wilson at 98. RG3 has not had a game with a passer rating under 72. Wilson has had 3, a 62, 35 and a 48. I think that alone should disqualify him.

RG3's been very efficiency and consistent since day 1, while Wilson is just now getting up to that level. His win over the 49ers was huge, and RG3 did get hurt, but overall I think RG3 has simply been better. Wilson's also had the much better defense.

Media may have decided it, but they're right on this one.

but what if wilson breaks peytons 26 td passing record......

The only thing I'll be rooting for in the playoffs is for those Failcons to lose.

Are you new here? Luck could've thrown for 6000 yds and they could've played the Packers every game, and RGIII could have played blind with a broken femur while the Skins played the Pats every game and this retarded board will still belittle anything not slurping the sack that is Cam and the fact we could easily have won 11 games this year.

Worst homers in the NFL, folks. Right here.

Precious... just precious.

OROY is a tossup between Wilson, RGIII, and Luck, but at this point I would give the nod to RGIII or Wilson. However, Luck is going to be a surgeon in the future, a very cerebral football player. Wilson (though playing lights out right now) has the benefit of his defense but will falter a little at some point in his career. RGIII is, well ... RGIII, but he's injury prone and will miss a batch of games throughout his career.

The long term solution is Luck. Regardless of stats you don't win 10 games as a rookie QB. He is a guy who will take command of his offense (similar to shall I say ... Peyton Manning).

Regardless, I'm happy with the guy in the #1 jersey we have. Here's to a future of showdowns between the next wave of elite QB's, and I am ecstatic Carolina can finally take part in the action.

The following article is the kind of thing that makes me want to root AGAINST Luck...

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--richard-sherman--andrew-luck-among-pro-bowl-snubs--ed-reed--matt-schaub-undeserving-of-honors-040000663.html

While Luck is likely to finish third in the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year balloting, he deserved better when it came to Pro Bowl voting. Sure, his stats don't measure up to the Houston Texans' Matt Schaub, who made it behind Peyton Manning and Tom Brady for the AFC team, but Luck was asked to do far more in the grand scheme of a season than Schaub.

Luck - 54.3% completion, 7.0 ypa, 21 TDs, 18 ints, 75.6 QB rating (10 team wins)

Schaub - 64/2 % completion, 7.3 ypa, 22 TDs, 10 ints, 92.4 QB rating (12 team wins)

So, if you follow Jason Cole's convoluted logic that Luck "is asked to do more" than Schaub, than Luck "is asked to do more" but accomplishes less, and Schaub is asked to do less but accomplishes MORE (higher %, higher ypa, more TDs, less ints).

Yet (again by Cole's convoluted logic) Luck deserves it more than Schaub does.

See all the purple games? That's all you need to know about Luck and the Colts winning in spite of him this year.

I hope to god that Luck doesn't come in and make a SB run. We won't hear the end of it from the Luck supporters in the huddle.
