    He got lucky on a guess. Ever watch him on TV? I don't like him.
    Simmons fucking sucks on TV. I turn that shit off whenever I see him. There's a reason he's a writer and not an analyst.

    He filled in for a week or more once on PTI. It was a bad time.

    I'm not saying Wilson is bad, but all the Seahawks fans giving Wilsom some sort Messiah status is getting somewhat out of hand!
    maybe you missed when the Seahawks completed every 3rd down except for the one where Wilson spent 18 seconds scrambling and the one where Flynn took a knee to end the game against what had previously been the best defense in the league

    and news is that Sherman successfully Braun'd his way out of his suspension

    The only problem I have with this is that it's being reported as "Sherman SAYS he won his appeal". Like we're being told to trust his word or something. Or that there's no official word.

    there's official word now, I waited 'til there was before I said anything

    The Associated Press obtained a copy of former NFL executive Bob Wallace's ruling, which explained the tester's handling of Sherman's leaky sample cup was "a big deal" not noted in the original report. The tester later admitted the sample cup had leaked and its contents transferred to another cup, but Wallace noted "insuring a sample is collected properly is the cornerstone of the program" and voided Sherman's suspension.

    central Virginia is going crazy with his success. My sisters knew his wife in high school. I played against him in football, and he kicked our ass. Everyone is going crazy over him. I'd go so far to say i really want a Russell Wilson jersey, but im a damn Steelers fan and my pride is too damn great.

    Really? I enjoyed the week on PTI and he has vastly, vastly improved their NBA pre-game show this year along with Jalen Rose.

    There were tons of players that got in that shouldn't have. Jeff Saturday is one of the best centers of all time, but he defiantly shouldn't have got in. Weird seeing Schaub get in over Luck as well.

    It was probably that 54% completion, and 21 TD to 18 interception ratio. Versus Schaub's 22/10 and 64%

    Luck is very overhyped for some reason. People even mention him as rookie of the year over rg3 and wilson. Look at conscripts numbers, he isnt a top qb.

    Just the probowl though, i dont even watch it.

    And for some reason, no one's talking about Alfred Morris or Doug Martin for rookie of the year.

    I think the stats don't tell the whole story in this situation. Luck took a team that won 2 games last year and got them to 10 wins this year. Schaub is playing on a team that won a playoff game with their third string quarterback last year. Naturally, Schaub needs to do less for his team to win games, so he takes less risks and racks up better stats. If I'm picking between those two guys based on this season only, I'd take Luck over Schaub and not even think twice about it.

    RG3 is still better though. Which is crazy cause I thought he'd be a bust.

    When it comes to RG3 and Cam Newton, I use the Michael Vick/Tim Tebow rule. Eventually, people figure it out. Wait a couple years, see if people are still overrating him.

    That is probably a bit unfair just like it is unfair to claim that the drop happened because of Manning alone. The reason the Colts were so bad is that they didn't even have even remotely close to a replacement level QB. The QBs on their roster last year were absolute jokes. Collins was old and immediately injured. Dan Orlovsky couldn't cut it as the backup in freaking Detroit. Curtis Painter was arguably the worst QB in the entire league last year. Even with a replacement level QB (which Luck is certainly better than) the Colts would have improved drastically. The Colts started three guys who has no business being on a roster last year, that is why they were so completely wretched, not only because they didn't have Manning or now Luck.

    I want to agree with you about Luck over Schaub, but frankly I don't think either of them should be there. That last spot should have been Andy Dalton's if anyone's. He has more TDs than either. He has way more yards than Schaub. His team is in the same position as the Colts while playing in a vastly better division.

    Alfred Morris has been super consistent, but has been overshadowed, albeit unfairly, by RG3. D-Mart should be a legitimate candidate for RotY, however, what Wilson and RG3 have done has been too hyped now for one of them not to get it. Same reason Manning will, win MVP, sure Peterson deserves that far more, but Manning has been too hyped NOT to win. Wilson should get RotY imo. As for Vick/Tebow -> Newton/RG3, remember, the latter are FAR superior in the pocket.

    I think that what Luck has done in Indy is enough. Luck has Reggie Wayne..... and? Wilson while playing for my favorite team was absent half the year and has the best supporting cast out of any of the rookie qb's. I think the fact that Luck has taken a 2-14 team and brought them to the playoffs is enough for me. If you're going to bring up the INT's, you have to realize he has literally had to carry that offense on his back, wilson hasn't had to in really and way shape or form.

    That is nonsense. If Luck was "carrying the Colts on his back" by himself, why does Wilson have more TDs while playing against the single hardest defensive schedule in the NFL? Luck has buried his team time after time this year with irresponsible play and then has clawed his way back out with a desperate passing game inflating his stats and minimizing the value of their mediocre running game. Its hard to run the ball when the QB spots the other team 2-3 picks like Luck did in numerous games.
