Luck for ROY

Recommended Posts

From NFL.com

Between Luck, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, you can pretty much flip a coin to decide who should win this award. I'd take Luck, because I think he's done more with a lesser supporting cast than Wilson or RG3. The Redskins and Seahawks have both outscored their opponents this season; Luck's Colts, meanwhile, have scored 37 fewer points than the opposition, yet have still managed to win nine games. That's more wins than any rookie quarterback drafted first overall. Luck has also led six fourth-quarter comebacks, the most by a rookie QB since the AFL-NFL merger. All three signal-callers are very good, but when it comes down to it, knowing what I know through Week 14, I'd still draft Luck first and RG3 second, with Wilson vaulting up to the third spot.

Discuss!

I would like to see this three-sided coin.

3 more threads on Luck vs RGiii. It's probably more like 50 though unfortunately.

Oh I knew what you meant I was trying to say 3? Like just 3? More like 3 x what? 3 x 7?=21 :) 3x 16= 48... sounds about right.

This is going to be close race. Even though Wilson has been good, i don't think he will be in it. Its between Luck and RG3. When im watching analyst debate about who is better, its pretty much always a split. Luck and his interceptions might hurt him.

I would pick luck becuase look at the Line and the Wr One Good Wr and One Good Lineman that bascially it......Redskins have all the weapons and they just need a QB and the Seahawks have been coming up big since they won against the Saints in the playoffs

I want Luck to win, but not as bad as I would like to win a playoff game...I think Luck deserves it simply due to the fact that he is working with less talent than the other two and that you cannot discount him being the first number 1 drafted rookie QB to win as many games as he has. As for the scoring differential, that can also be attributed to better Defenses and Offensive lines not just QB play.

    • The answer is yes and no. We do have the cap to absorb the hit, but it comes at a serious cost. Now bear with me, as I am not exactly Superman when it comes to this kind of stuff, but I like to think I have a decent grasp on it. I am sure (and I hope) someone will correct me if I have messed something up.   We have ~70M in cap for next year (~50M after Lucks hypothetical cap hit), but we also have 31 players with contracts expiring. While we probably wont resign most of them, they still have to be replaced for the most part (id say 25 players would need to be brought in at a minimum). Looking at their current cap hits, they account for ~35M of our cap this year. A handful of those players are also under their current market value, and if you take into account the rising salary cap/ extra cost of additional 1st round draft picks (3.5-5m per top 10 pick), there is no way we can replace those players at the same cost. Even if we got the same number of players of the same skill level for 40M (which would take some serious work by Ballard), we have upgraded -1 positions (as we have no franchise QB) and are sitting with ~10M in cap. Not going to make major improvements with 10M. We would only be able to rely on our draft class to improve the team and replace Luck, which puts us behind the ball for 2018.   That is not even mentioning the ridiculously small window we would have to actually make that trade with Luck. We cant trade Luck until the 1st day of the new league year (in March), and he has a roster bonus that is guaranteed as of the 5th day of the league year. That would add another 3M to his cap hit. That gives other teams leverage as we are the ones to lose out by waiting for them to up their bid, which would lead to us either losing another 3M in cap or possibly taking a lower offer for Luck, which is already going to be lower than usual due to the long term outlook of his injury not being entirely clear.   Hopefully that clarifies things a bit. If needed I can probably go into it a little deeper or take a swing at anything you need clarification on.
    •   Exactly what I was thinking.  If there is a game-changing talent at either of those positions we need to make sure we take them.     I would be very reluctant to trade to Jacksonville for a very good QB.  The way their team are trending that could mean they dominate this division for years.
    • I wonder if there are two more different personality types in the world of sport than Tiger and Andrew!
    •   It must be some size of tree for us to have been chopping it for this many years and the thing still hasn't fallen!    Ol' Chuck needs to hit the gym.
    • If we are as high as you predict (which I don't think we would be) I would say need to look for an elite pass rusher.  Those are in high demand where you can pick up a solid O-lineman or ILB in the 2nd round or later.    What is interesting to consider is whether we can get another first rounder (maybe even more?) from a potential trade of Brissett based on how well he has played and us having Andrew back.
