Looks like rookie of the year is locked up

112 posts in this topic

You left of a few HUGE stats its called RUSHING and RUSHING TD's. RG3 642 yards and 6 TD's Luck 165 yds. 5 TD's. Also using QBR is bull crap that is a made up ESPN stat the NFL doesnt use QBR. The QB rating they use RG3 is 104.6 and Luck 77.2.....Using espn's QBR is like using a rating system I made up lol. I know you put both but QBR is dumb use just the real rating that is official.

He gave a nod to Griff's rushing success in the post. Seconding QBR being dumb, though.

I know he gave him a nod for rushing but felt he left the numbers off of the post because the yardage is so crooked. Bottom line is though both players are awesome and both teams are happy and there are troll/haters on both sides and unfortunately that will not change.

You know....I hear Under Armor makes a thong.

Just sayin......

Wait remember when we where talking about jello wrestling. Perhaps Andrew Luck and Robert can wear the under armor thongs while jello wrestling? Winner wins offensive roty honors. To pump them up before hand we can lock them in a room together so they can watch Magic Mike!

If you want to count the Rams game where he drove them down for the game tying FG and then a penalty pushed them out of FG range, and then the next week the Bengals game he was heading down to tie the game until he came up on a 3rd and 45 due to penalties etc.

My point being - it takes a team to make a come back. Has Luck been clutch? Definitely - been very good there. But to say Griffin hasn't been clutch is just plain blind. He is just as critical to their success as Luck is here. Fortunately for luck, he has had more consistent and disciplined play from his teammates during those critical times. I can't think of how many touchdowns I've seen called back on them this year...2 on one drive against the Giants I remember seeing.

As for any rookie awards...its a coin flip. This argument could go back and forth forever.

at the moment griffen reminds me of rodgers hes mobile and doesn't make many mistakes plus he threw 4tds two weeks in a row that's very impressive even some veterans don't do that

Luck reminds me of eli manning mixed with big ben his stats aren't always the prettiest but he is good in the clutch infact this year luck and eli stats are similiar with eli throwing 12tds and 11 ints and and luck with 12 tds and 12 ints hopefully by years end luck puts some separation between his tds and ints

False.

QB rating is a pure statistic.

QBR is not, as it is truly subjective.

you didn't...but the fact that you're one the few STILL lamenting the decision to let manning go is telling....and so is implying that irsay would let manning go and draft luck due to hype.

i didn't overly praise luck in this thread or any other thread

All stats can be misleading, even the most basic ones. Passer rating is at least understood well enough for most people to be able to put the numbers into proper context. QBR is both subjective and opaque, so it's effectively impossible to put it into context without doing a whole lot of guess work.

Ah, well sorry. Just seems like you come off as one is all. My apologies.

Understandable... It's all good!

I like Luck... And I hope he is great someday. I just get annoyed with all of the praise. I just don't get it.

There is one simple thing Luck doesn't have that RG does... An O-LINE!!!!

I believe he gets the praise because everyone can see a bright future with the guy. They think to themselves look what this rookie has done for a 2-14 team, and he's only played in 10 games. And the same thing can be said for RG3.

I think both have been can be and will be great players. I try to be as objective as I can, and I completely understand both sides of this debate. But at the end of the day, I am a Colts fan, so my bias will skew to the Colts player, in a complete vaccum.

That being said, this race isn't in a vaccum. I think at this point in time Luck has done more with less and is performing better. I think he has taken a leaderless team, going through turmoil never seen before, and leading them to a miraculous season, after many considered them left for dead. To me that is more impressive than slight edge RG has in rushing/TDs/TOs.

And although it has zero credence in the RoY race, or really anything for that matter, I do believe Luck is the much better "value" seeing as how the Redskins gave up 3 1st Rd and 1 2nd Rd pick to acquire him. That is extraordinarily significant in regards to team management and building thru the draft, something the Colts will be able to do with Luck, but not something the Redskins can do with Griffin.

Both QB's have had the benefit of help in certain areas.

RG3 has had the help of a late rd rookie stud in Morris IE running game.

RG3 has a franchise LT and a Center in Montgomery who is looking very good.

Luck has a HOF wr that's been healthy all season as well as other young studs at both the WR and TE podsitions.

They have remained healthy for the most part, as well.

Luck is on a team that is just a season removed from having a yearly Playoff team and HOF QB. They have built a winning culture that has not known anything but success for over a decade.

Is Luck being ask to do more?

Like reads and pass attempts,etc.

That case can be argued....

But RG3 and Redskins can argue they are not only in a tougher Division, but a tougher Conference, as well as having a much tougher schedule.

Fact is...

Both QB's look very good in their young careers.

Both teams made the correct choices for their team in building a winner.

Both teams have very bright futures.

Both are fine. I feel like Griffin still has the training wheels on where Arians seems to be letting Luck do a lot more. RG3s stats remind me more of Alex Smith last year where Luck reminds me more of Eli(sort of).

They have Luck at 8 fumbles. Griffin at 9.

Really that not large of a TO difference given the drastic difference in Att and overall off. scheme.

Does Luck have more? Sure does.

Sure didn't seem to hinder his team as they have a winning record tho.

That's fumbles. Not fumbles lost. Most of those are on the running back on the hand off for RG3...

Luck's defense is carrying him. Throw in a pathetic schedule...and a possible playoff berth is on the horizon....

After today's dismal performance, consider him completely out of consideration for ROTY....

Speaking of rookies, Janoris Jenkins just made an outstanding play. Hopped off of his man to jump a route on a running back to intercept a pass for a Touchdown...

Glad Fleener was a more valuable pick than him. :cuss: "Off the field issues! He will rape our children and set our homes on fire!" Ugh.

Jenking sturggled mightily earlier but has played better lately. Weak class for defensive players it seems.

RG3 and it's not even close.

On a side note ,your wrong. If the colts make the playoffs and the redskins do not, Luck will win OROY.

meh, i doubt most people know what goes into the passer rating. it's just been the standard forever and people don't like change.

Because Luck tends to make up for his turnovers.

    • Fickle Charger fans might bolt [no pun intended there.] However, diehard San Diego fans aren't going anywhere. Losing Bosa isn't gonna jeopardize their shot at a new stadium either since even if Joey had showed up at the beginning of training camp & balled out; His presence alone wasn't gonna generate droves of revenue from the CA legislature courtesy of tax payer funds that residents approved of. Financing is usually generated by ownership, city council members, zoning committees; vendor appeal; & taxpayers who are convinced by elected officials in Congress that this new stadium structure will pull in money from hosting other events adding lucrative annual revenue directly into your state.    Yes, winning football teams make it easier to get land & financing faster for a new NFL home than a losing franchise sure, but the league understands all 32 teams need to thrive fiscally in order to make the shield more profitable both in the US & abroad.    Even with salary guidelines in place now based on the CBA & when a player was drafted, losing out on Bosa won't be that demoralizing to me because all scouting departments do rigorous workups, interviews, & 1 on 1 sessions with players they are interested in before & after the Combine so it's not they were blindly throwing darts at a board here. I don't feel sorry for San Diego at all. They pulled the trigger on Bosa, retracted their offer, & now get to eat their homework research failure. Life goes on. 
    • This is an owners thing,  not a players thing.   The things that the owners are asking for were not spelled out in the new CBA.   They're asking for the large bonus to be paid out nearly a year after being drafted.    AND,  they're also asking for the off-set language to go in their favor.       And since neither was addressed in the CBA,  both issues have to be negotiated by each team and player.       The owners are asking for both.     Most players are giving one or the other but not both.   Believe me,  this will be addressed in the next CBA.   This is not all Bosa.....  
    • Not for his majesty King Belichick and their prince Brady you are correct.
    • Maybe he shouldn't have gave an answer to the Bosa question but his answer wasn't wrong. 
    • I think you might play better than Butler did last year and what little I've seen of him this year He gave up a 117 passer rating when targeted in the slot last year.  He could never play outside. We need  an upgrade. I think we got what we could out of him.    I'm now getting frustrated with Smith. I thought he looked more comfortable vs Ravens and was hoping to see a little more this weekend. i was fine with limited action in the preseason but come he out again. I hope he's ready week 1.
