You are missing the most important stat of all. Wins.

Who cares what his numbers are, as long as he's winning? The worst team in the league last year has become a playoff contender under his watch. As I recall, this is much the same logic that we Bengals' fans used this time last year to argue why Dalton was/is better than Cam Newton.

Yea, his numbers are great and I respect your point for RG3, but I lean towards Wilson for the reasons I mentioned as far as having to earn his spot. All the first team reps from day one of OTAs was a huge advantage for Griffin.

Either way, Luck should not win ROY. Although I think he is very good and his numbers will improve as his supporting cast does. The Colts record is a result of a ridiculously easy schedule.

This is where we see the other side of the QB focused analysis that most ppl employ. If the Colts were 5-9, and Luck put up the same numbers, ppl would be screaming bust......But I wouldn't.

Exactly. I don't think Luck will be a bust, but his performance doesn't match the hype he's currently getting. That's all I'm saying with this thread. I actually think Luck will be a solid QB in the future, although I don't think he'll ever reach the Manning/Elway level people were projecting before the draft.

People can hype Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III for Rookie of the Year but I think the honor should go to Russell Wilson of the Seahawks. That kid can flat-out play.

Yea, the hype train for that kid had been gaining steam since 2010.
