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.

    • Because I’ve been a Colts fan for a long time and Jim Irsay has never had an issue spending money.  Ballard has also said over and over again he was saving his money to pay his own.  This isn’t breaking news.  So rather buy into some idea that he was fine with spending money under Tobin, Polian, and Grigson but is no longer fine with spending money under Ballard just doesn’t add up when you look at his history and what Ballard said.  It’s much more logical to assume that’s he’s spending what Ballard wants like he has with his previous GMs especially when the GM tells you he doesn’t believe in splash free agents and is saving his money to sign his own.   Irsay doesn’t negotiate the contracts.  Ballard does so contract structuring is done by Ballard and Ballard has done it in away to give him cap flexibility that is going to allow him to keep guys like Nelson, Leonard, Smith and others over the next couple of years.    Also Jim Irsay is worth 3 billion dollars he’s not hurting for money.   You want to see an organization that doesn’t want to spend money look across town where Simon won’t even let the Pacers look at the luxury tax.  That’s an owner who doesn’t want to spend.
    • I’m not sure why you find it hard to accept that the Colts may have cash flow problems?  Not that they can’t manage them, but still….   Irsay is one of the few owners who doesn’t have any other source of big income.   No high tech company.  No real estate development.   No oil and gas.   His wealth is owning the Colts.   That’s it.    Sure he may he may spend money, but these last five years he now uses a pay-go system that lends itself to managing money.  We used to give bigger SB’s under Grigson.   Now,  we give either small or no signing bonuses.   Very few teams do that.  And we’re a very small market franchise.   You weren’t the least bit surprised to see DeForest Buckner accept a ZERO signing bonus?   I sure was.     Point of clarification:  none of what I’ve written is proof of anything.   But I think it’s at least worth considering, and you seem completely unwilling to even do that.  I confess find that surprising. 
    • Just because they had money left over doesn’t mean Irsay had a problem spending it had Ballard wanted too.  It doesn’t take that hard of a look back at Irsay’s history of owner to see he has zero problem spending what his GM wants to spend.  
    • That's not exactly true if you consider cap space left over. IIRC, we had the most unspent or near most unspent over a 3-4 year period just recently (IIRC, 16, 17, 18, 19). Pretty sure we had 40+M unspent two years in a row.   IIRC, we carried over the most in the league again this year at around 30M.   It was also speculated that we 1) didn't ask Luck for money back, AND 2) gave JB such a big raise, was because we would have been too far under the 89% rule had we not done both 1 and 2.     
    • Regardless Irsay has never been shy about spending to make the Colts better.  So either way the first point that started all this is irrelevant.
