Coming into the 2012 season no one could have guessed what an impact Seahawks rookie QB Russel Wilson could have made. In fact nobody was even certain if he would start. Since then he has emerged a top 15 QB and is even eyeing rookie of the year honors. He outranks Andrew Luck in passer rating and RG3 in TDs and wins. He also ties Andrew Luck with wins. Now one question remains does the league's most under-rated rookie have what it takes to lead his team deep into the playoffs.
Give me you thoughts.

I care! And I bet a lot of football fans care.

Well, it should be Wilson or RGIII. Luck has thrown too many picks in his games. They are all really good players. If I HAD to choose between RGIII and Wilson I would go with RGIII. He has rebounded from lots of injuries. I think it should come down to who goes the furthest in the playoffs.

Maybe he'll be the rookie but last week during half time they showed a thing with americas votes and it was RG3 1st then Andrew Luck 2nd and then Russel Wilson but I think it should be

1. Andrew Luck
2. Russel Wilson
3. RG3

The surprise of the year is Russell Wilson. The one who played with his heart is Andrew Luck. The one with the best quarterback play is RG3 so I'm picking him. But the one with the best team I think is Wilson (Seahawks).

I am going to go as in depth on each of them as possible. Primarily because I am bored.

Luck- The first round draft choice. Therefore he is expected to be really good. He has turned the whole Colts team around. The Colts are headed to the playoffs. Luck has led a ton of 4th quarter comebacks. However he has thrown a bunch of picks. He does though have the record for most passing yards for a rookie. Primarily because his team is one dimensional.

RGIII- The second round pick. Therefore a lot has been expected of him. Had a rough start but they have been winning. He has hurt himself a few times but has rebounded and is still playing well. He is a duel threat because of his running ability. However, even though he can run he can still throw very well. Also RGIII has the fewest interceptions of the 3. That is a good stat to have.

Wilson- 3rd round draft pick. He earned his way to the position beating out Matt Flynn. He seems to be improving each week which is good. Also he has the ability to dodge defenders like no one else. Since the middle of the season he has had the best passer rating (or one of the best).

Ummm...ya. If Wilson keeps playing at the level he has in the past few weeks he really should win. Again, Luck just as too many interceptions for me to pick him.

Clearly out of the 3 teams with these QB's seahawks are the best but that's not all Rusell Wilson cause they have like 1st or 2nd best D in the league (either them or the 9ers).

Well do they deside rookie of the year before the playoffs ?

Seattle is ranked 4th in total offense. I agree that it's not all Wilson and their big offensive contributor is Marshawn Lynch.

I don't know for sure but it think it's before the playoffs.

I'm not sure when they decide rookie of the year but if it's after the Super Bowl then the playoffs will be the deciding factor between RG3 Wilson and Luck
