... the Indianapolis Colts 2012 season is a great story.

And it's one that Panther fans who remember Sam Mills and the 2003 season ought to be especially able to appreciate.

Can tell you that I don't honestly expect they'll win a playoff game, but I'll definitely be cheering for them.


If you mean in the fact that their coach is battling lukemia, yes I see your point. In all honesty, my heart goes out to him and his family. Football aside.

I agree on Wildon. Guy is playing lights out and the Hawks are spanking good teams. He deserves it, but will be snubbed.


I totally agree with you and the person you qouted.

Wilson is so over-looked because the media has made up their minds who their chosen qb is and who he's going to compete with. They will find a way of saying Wilson hasn't done enough to win OROY because they have already made up their minds who they want to win that honor.

Russel Wilson is the best QB prospect I've seen in a LONG time. I have never seen a rookie QB so poised in the pocket before, it's like a 5 year vet under center and he still has room to grow (no pun intended). I'm really happy to see him doing well in the NFL, it's just a shame that he's criminally underrated because he's playing on a team with a good defense and running game. They had both of those pieces before he even got there, but the addition of Wilson has made that team a real contender and probably the scariest team in the NFL at least, especially at home. I do think he has the capability of being the best QB in the league fairly soon, and I'm very excited to see what the future holds for him.

Luck on the other hand, is playing poorly against bad defenses and being anointed the next great QB even though he isn't playing all that well. RGIII, Wilson and Cam have all outplayed him but for some reason he gets to be the media darling. I don't get it.

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.

i want us to aim higher around here. instead of 1st downs lets celebrate touchdowns. instead of getting hot for no good reason and shoot ourselves in the foot at a great draft pick, lets get a high pick because we made the playoffs.

cam is great and i don't worry about his game at all. but our team and franchise and fans need to be sick to our stomachs to see even teams like the Rams do well.

look at the Falcons. TWICE they have won the division in a couple of yrs. of course there will be those that go yeah but they lose in the playoffs. they fired BOTH cord's after last year. that tells me they are hungry and won't settle for beating their chest about how good is Ryan vs Mark Sanchez or Sam Bradford.

win and win and just win. thats all that matters.


god damn this is the corniest thing i've ever read

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.
