I'd like to point out that the best players in the game today have not won the rookie of the year award.

Adrian Peterson, Big Ben, Jerod Mayo, Patrick Willis, and Matt Ryan say hello. Many of them haven't, true, but that's because there is only one winner each year, and players only qualify for one year. Of course the best players, or most of the best players, haven't won it. I would argue, however, the best player (singular) has won it - Peterson.

 

Personally, I don't think it's a predictor of success, but it's not a like it's a curse.

Hidden by Nadine, February 3, 2013 - shot at fans?

You're right about this topic being discussed ad nauseum here, but again, what do you expect? Our team isn't playing and about the only thing relevant to the fan base right now was the contention for ORotY and COtY. Do I feel like Luck was snubbed? I think he had a shot, but it's hard to say he was snubbed when there were two other very qualified applicants. I don't have any ill feelings towards RG3 or the redskins, but it's still amazing to me that people will get on this forum for what appears to be the sole purpose of bashing the people here who are obviously fans of the team the forum is based on. If you don't have anything of value to put into a conversation and merely egg the fans here on, than you're just a troll.

 

My purpose was not to bash.  In fact, I think you find that you and I are in agreement in the bolded part of your post.  People who say things like those I've referenced previously are adding nothing to intelligent discourse.  If you look at some of my previous posts, I've offered stats and numbers to support my viewpoints, as other users have for their own, which again I think we'd agree is the point of the message board.

 

The only reason I replied to this thread in particular is because I was pretty appalled by that one post in particular.  If you think your guys deserved it because of some criteria, great!  Tell us about it!  But snarky posts about real people who are suffering real injuries is absurd.

 

EDIT: See, this guy is a real troll v v v v

I just want to know who were the 11 '* that voted for Luck. Luck is terrible. If not for Sanchez he leads the league in turnovers. Didn't deserve a single vote over Wilson or the illustrious RG3.

Mad about what? What your doing is called projecting. My guy won. Your guy sucks. Your GM should be fired for blowing the first overall pick. Andrew Luck doesn't even look like a first rounder.

That GM that "sucks" is this year's Executive of the Year, but you know what you're talking about. Welcome to the forum, noobie. Can admins do something about these kind of posts?

Luck 2 Legs, 1 Ivy League Brain

 

Griffin 1 Leg, 1 Mush brain from concussions.

Lol. You couldn't tell by his play on the field. Bad decision after bad decision. Plus he has the charisma of a rock. My god that voice...sound like Andre the Giants long lost downsy brother...

Oh yeah, the same NFC "Beast" that got raped by AFC North this year, right? The same NFC "Beast" that has all of its teams drafting in the first round being in the top 20 right? The same NFC "Beast" whose defenses collectively are ranked 12th, 22nd, 24th, and 29th right? The same NFC "Beast" without the NY Giants have ZERO SBs in the last 2 decades right? Final question, are you sure this is the NFC "Beast" we're talking about? Sounds more like the NFC "SHEET"!jFdVc.jpg

And Bob had much better players around him.. Thanks for making my point

Right. RG3 had a hall of fame wideout...wait, his top wideout was a guy the colts didn't even resign....that was hurt 50% of the season. And the Colts had a better defense. Only18 points given up on average in their 11 victories. Much more than what R3 had to work with. The defense carried that team....in the worst division of pro football.

So the Colts are better than the Redskins is what you're saying?

Calling fans of the team whose forum you are browsing "butthurt" is not offering relevant statistical information.

    • Trade a known unknown for a 5th. CB would have to.   Can't believe it would be offered, now.
    • The 10 day isolation is based on incubation periods, timeframes of serious/visible symptoms appearing and ability of the test to catch it at certain times. Not on availability of vaccine or whether the virus is 0.5% deadly or 0.6%. If a player is not vaccinated, it doesn't matter whether the others are. He still carries a much larger chance to get infected and spread it around... in the ~10 days it takes to confirm he has caught it(or not) after exposure. This is especially true for the new variants that might be more contagious. Even if they have no symptoms they can still transfer it to both unvaccinated teammates and a fair bit less likely(but still possible) to vaccinated teammates. That's what the isolation is for. To prevent further spread.   No. It's them being a threat to spread a deadly virus around...  Because the relevant conditions are not that different. The biggest difference this year compared to last year is the availability of a highly effective, safe vaccines. Part of the players just don't want to take it. Which is... fair enough. They can refuse to take it. At the same time the league has the right to implement rules to attempt to reduce the spread among its employees. BTW The rules about safety and the precautions taken are almost identical to last year's ( the isolation, the daily tests, the masks, distancing, etc. (except for forfeiting games and paychecks now)) when everybody was in that group of unvaccinated players.  There is no new burden on unvaccinated players(besides potentially losing paychecks if they don't play due to catching the virus). If anything the NFL has relaxed its rules for majority of its players(the vaccinated ones). IMO this is the right way to look at it. It's a bonus and relief to vaccinated players rather than punishment to the not vaccinated players. You cannot expect the league to just lift its hands and not implement any safety measures when significant part of its players don't want to do the bare minimum to reduce the risks for teammates and employees.
    • Would trade Mack for a 5th without hesitation.  RBs coming off an Achilles don’t have the best track record.  
    • But what trade value would Wilkins have if any?
