    The race for NFL Rookie of the year is getting interesting

    Two first rounders vs the lowly 3rd rounder.

    Right now RGIII has like 18 TDs

    Russell Wilson 20 TDs

    Andrew Luck 18 TDs

    OK I'm a homer and ya..Wilson is like 5' 10"

    Does Wilson stand a chance against these two well publicised rookie QBs?

    OK let's look a little deeper into some meaningful stats going into week 15. TURNOVERS


    Andrew Luck 18 TD's 18 Ints 4 Fumbles 22 turnovers

    RGIII 18 TD's 4 ints 9 fumbles 13 turnovers

    Russell Wilson 20 TD's 9 ints 2 fumbles 11 turnovers


    Also Wilson has 6 game winning scoring drives. The others ...not so much.

    RGIII Update Courtesy The Sporting News:

    Robert Griffin III injury update: RG3 looks gimpy on practice throws
    Published 22 hours and 20 minutes ago
    Associated Press ASHBURN, Va.—Robert Griffin III high-stepped and moved laterally with barely a hitch as he stretched with his Washington Redskins teammates, then looked a little gimpy during throwing drills during the first part of practice.

    The league's top-rated passer was back on the field Wednesday, three days after spraining his right knee during an overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.

    Griffin has a mild sprain of the lateral collateral ligament, the result of a hit by defensive tackle Haloti Ngata at the end of a 13-yard scramble late in regulation of the 31-28 victory.

    If Griffin is unable to play Sunday against Cleveland, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins will get the call for the Redskins (7-6). Washington has won four straight and sits one game behind the first-place New York Giants in the NFC East.



    If Griffen has lost his mobility... he is through as Rookie of the year. The NFL is all about "what have you done for me lately?"

    Take away his ability to get free from the constraints of the pocket and he is red meat. His league leading passer efficiency goes bye bye. The little chump passes like the bubble screen will get blown up.

    Knee injuries are serious. Playing him now is a bad move for the Redskins. One bad hit and his career could be over.

    Andrew Luck faces the toughest test inthe last three games.

    Colts at 9 and 4 play the 11 and 2 Houston Texans twice. Sandwiched inbetween in a game with Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.. Not a lock by any stretch. When the Seahawks were in the AFC West we ALLWAYS had trouble playing in Arrowhead.

    True the Cheeps are horrible this year with a 2 and 11 record ... 1 and 6 at home.

    I can see the Colts easily going 10 and 6 for the season.

    It wouldn't be the second coming as Luck was advertised.

    Lets see who gets his team to the playoffs

    I think RGIII is carrying his team more than the other two

    I agree. Wilson barely played more than a half in Seattle's crushing of the Cards 58-0 last Sunday.

    Now with a serious knee injury Washington has to be very carefull what they let RGII attempt.

    RGIII does have the easiest run out schedule with The Browns, Eagles, and Dallas.

    If he can't tear it up with a gimp knee he loses what makes him elite. Obviously I'm a Wilson homer but it would be tough to lose to Luck or Wilson because of a late season injury. He in the passing efficiency leader but if he is stuck in the pocket without true mobility he will have a crummy last three games. I smell sacks and ints and fumbles..which by the way he already has 9.

    Stupid quarterback-centered awards!

    No mention of Trent Richardson? Doug Martin? Alfred Morris?

    And that's just for offensive rookie of the year!

    Of course a qb is going to win, I just find it annoying how quickly people dismiss any other position.
