I think both players have been fun to watch, frankly. What a lucky year we've had with QBs, all 5 really.
Luck among players shaving head to support Pagano
Ranking Player, position (draft position) Last week <center>1</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Andrew Luck, Colts QB (first round, No. 1)
What did Luck do in Week 9? He threw for an amazing 433 yards (a new rookie single-game record) en route to defeating Miami and putting his Colts squarely in the conversation for an AFC wild card. Luck has now thrown for 290 yards or more in six games. Stats don't always tell the story, but that is pretty impressive.
<center>2</center> <center>2</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Doug Martin, Buccaneers RB (first round, No. 31)
Even with Carl Nicks, Tampa Bay's best offensive lineman and a great run-blocker, out of the lineup, Martin put on an absolute show against the Raiders. Martin did run through some gigantic holes, but his ability to rip off three long touchdowns really makes you take notice.
<center>5</center> <center>3</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Robert Griffin III, Redskins QB (first round, No. 2)
RG3 is very light on quality receiving options right now, the right tackle spot for Washington is a mess and he injured his ribs early against Carolina. So this bye week might be coming at the right time for the rookie and his Redskins.
<center>1</center> <center>4</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Chandler Jones, Patriots DE (first round, No. 21)
Jones was on bye in Week 9, so there isn't much to report here, but Luke Kuechly and Bobby Wagner are zooming in on his Defensive Rookie of the Year award.
<center>3</center> <center>5</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Trent Richardson, Browns RB (first round, No. 3)
The Browns nearly upset Baltimore in Week 9, and Richardson's 25-carry, 136-yard effort had a lot to do with that. There were no signs his ribs were bothering him in any way. Richardson has had just two subpar outings as a pro, and injuries were the culprit for both of those performances.
<center>6</center> <center>6</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins QB (first round, No. 8)
Tannehill played hurt in Week 9. Still, he nearly led the Dolphins to a road win over Luck's Colts, throwing for 290 yards. All I could think about while watching this game is that these two signal-callers are going to do battle -- with superior supporting casts -- for years to come in the AFC.
<center>4</center> <center>7</center> http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=false Russell Wilson, Seahawks QB (third round, No. 75)
Wilson has been quite productive over the past two weeks and is growing rapidly as a quarterback overall. Slowly, the Seahawks' coaching staff is giving him more to handle -- and he has responded very well. Another new development for the ever-improving Wilson was much more use of the shotgun, which didn't hinder his effectiveness.
Haha, don't look now, but... Luck for MVP?
5. ANDREW LUCK
Quarterback | Indianapolis Colts ... Next Game: 11/8 at JAC ... Last Poll: NR
http://a.espncdn.com/combiner/i?img=...nsparent=falseLuck makes his MVP Watch debut after setting an NFL single-game rookie record with 433 passing yards during a memorable home victory over the Miami Dolphins. ESPN's metrics have been telling us for weeks that Luck was outplaying Robert Griffin III in spite of what traditional stats said. For example, Luck's passes are traveling 10.2 yards past the line of scrimmage on average, the highest figure in the NFL. He has completed 16 of 43 passes on throws traveling more than 20 yards downfield. The level of difficulty is tougher for Luck than it is for many other quarterbacks, in other words.
So when do we bench Luck in favor of Stanton?
Andrew Luck's jersey arrives at HOF

INDIANAPOLIS -- Eight games into his rookie season, Andrew Luck has already made it into the NFL's Hall of Fame.
<!-- begin inline 1 -->AFC South blog
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/columnis...sky_paul_m.jpgESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky writes about all things AFC South in his division blog.• Blog network: NFL Nation
<!-- end inline 1 -->Or at least his jersey has.
The No. 12 shirt worn by Luck during Sunday's record-setting game against Miami arrived in Canton, Ohio, on Wednesday and will be displayed in the Hall of Fame's Pro Football Today Gallery.
Luck threw for 433 yards, a single-game rookie record, and tied Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in league history to produce four 300-yard games during their rookie seasons. Luck broke Cam Newton's single-game mark of 432 yards set last year.
If Luck keeps this up, Hall of Fame officials soon will have him on speed dial. The No. 1 draft pick is on pace to set rookie records for completions, yards and attempts.
Is Andrew Luck's Season Unprecedented?
Why didn't we keep Payton!?!?!?
Are you finally starting to realize how idiotic you are with the things you write ??
ANYONE that doesn't realize that Luck is FAR superior to Griffin in every category (except endorsements :rolleyes:) simply doesn't understand the game of football.
The number 1 way to tell that Luck is better than RG3 is that Skip Bayless believes that RG3 is better And skip is always wrong.
I'd pay good money to witness the unintentional hilarity that would be OlBlu vs. Skip Bayless in a game of JEOPARDY! My guess is the winner would be whichever one rings in less, thereby having less wrong answers, and a lower negative score.
Could be MVP if he can keep it up against a weak Patriots D
Anyone seen that quote before?Quote:
In the weeks leading up to the 2012 draft, one team called Indianapolis and actually told it to name its price, to come up with a package it wanted in return for the No. 1 pick. That team was willing to ship off all its picks, plus players, for the chance to draft Luck. It would surrender one of the richest, if not the richest, packages in NFL history. But Indianapolis never even responded with a proposal. It wanted Luck.
He will win ROY
