    Thing is......
    RGIII is doing exactly what everyone expected him to do, what he was capable of doing. Wilson was shunned from the get go as being too short to ever succeed in the NFL. Plus, Wilson just gets better and better as the season goes on. Personally, I find what Wilson has done to be more incredible than RGIII or Luck. Maybe a win against RGIII this weekend would help folks to see just how good DangeRussWilson is.

    The playoffs are perhaps going to be the deciding factor...
    And much of that depends on how they perform.

    I truly hope that RW does very well this weekend and I hope The Seattle D can shut down RGIII and the rest of The Redskins offense.

    Sorry but lets call this like it is. Russell Wilson has just been better. More TD's (Rookie Record). More home wins (Another Rookie Record). More wins period. And if you want to get into passer rating and accuracy than i'll still take Russell Wilson. RGIII may have slightly better numbers, but lets do the research here before we call him more accurate. He throws THE MOST screen passes in the NFL. He also ranks towards the bottom half of the league in attemps of passes beyond 20 yards. This isn't a debate of most exciting rookie qb, which is what the RGIII debate leans towards. This is the debate of best overall rookie QB. That has to be Russell Wilson.

    As I presupposed 18 weeks ago: Russell is in contention for the NFL Rookie of The Year honor...
    but will suffer in the voting from his geographic position.

    RG III doesn't impress me much. He's done exactly what was expected of him.

    Luck, a first round draft pick, has achieved MUCH success.

    Wilson, a third round draft, has achieved just as much success as Luck. With EXCEEDINGLY lower expectations. Only I, and a few other insightful individuals, even conceived that Wilson would have an opportunity to compete for this Honor.

    I give the nod to Wilson: Because no-one even expected him to start a game this season.

    Go! Seahawks!

    What about Alfred Morris?
    I know it's a QB driven league, but Alfred Morris is 2nd in the league in rushing with 1613 yards, 4.8 YPC and 13 TD's. He likely won't win, but he should at least be in the conversation with these 3 QB's.

    Look at who they Faced this year, BIG ADVATAGE WILSON
    I'm sorry but if you do just a little research about these two guys and what teams they faced this year, you GOT to give it to Wilson. RGIII only played 4 teams with an overall defense ranked better than 15th. He was 0-4 in those games. RGIII played the worst ranked Defensive divisions in football, that is why he racked up all those numbers. He played against the NFCE and NFCS - The AVERAGE defense RGIII faced this year was ranked 20th in defense. Flip the script and Wilson played some of the best defenses in the NFL, in games against teams with defenses better than 15th in the league he was 7-4 compared to RGIII's 0-4. The Average defense Wilson faced this season was ranked 13th in the NFL. That's a HUGE difference... RGIII and the Redskins played the pathetic defenses of the NFCE who boast the 15th 19th and 31st ranked D in the NFL and the NFCS - 10th 24th 29th 32nd ranked D's in the NFL. That's a cake-walk, that is why RGIII has had such a great year... he played the worst defenses in the NFL, some of them twice, meanwhile Wilson is close with all of RGIII's numbers and has a few better, and he played the BEST defenses in the NFL playing the NFCN and NFCW.
