Andrew Luck Vs RG3: Rookie of the Year

As each week passes the debate over this years rookie of the year intensifies. As of now I would say it is a two player race, with Andrew Luck and Robert Griffen being the front runners. Both of these quarterbacks are having phenomenal seasons. Luck has led his team to an 8-4 record when they only went 2-14 last season. And it is looking like the Colts are going to make the playoffs. He has thrown for 3596 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also has a QB rating of 76.1. Andrew Luck also has another amazing stat under his belt. He has five game winning drives and three 4th quarter comebacks! Luck is a leader and it is showing.

Robert Griffen is also having an amazing season. His Redskins are 5-6 and chasing the New York Giants for the division lead. Griffen’s stats are through the roof. He has thrown for 2497 yards and 16 touchdowns and has only thrown 4 interceptions. He also has a QB rating of 104.6 which is good for second in the league only behind Aaron Rodgers. Oh yeah, RG3 can run the ball a little bit too, he has ran for a whopping 642 yards and 6 touchdowns. Griffen is looking to cut the Giants division lead to one game tonight with a win.

So, as you can see we have a very tight race here. Both quarterbacks show amazing stats and are definitely the best players on their team. They are both leaders and both know how to sling the ball down the field, but if I had to choose today I think I would have to go with Andrew Luck. He has blown everyone away by bringing the Colts to an 8-4 record when no one thought they would win more than 4 or 5 games. I think this alone out shines the stats that Griffen has put up this season, but there is still 4 games left so we will see what happens…
