First of all, I wasn't making that argument. I was offering a counter-point. I can explain this concept further if you need me to.

Second of all, the idea that yards aren't an indicator of offensive contribution is a joke.

BOTH TDs and yards matter. Otherwise goal line backs would get paid like franchise backs. Strangely they don't, huh?

You can only win the games on your schedule. If someone wants to show that SEA faced better DEFENSES, go for it.

But listing off single games as an individual achievement is a joke.

>>Russell Wilson is one of the nicest rookies in a while.
>>There is no case to be made for him over RG3. None.

No, there aren't. That's why you admit you'd vote RG3 too.


Which means SOME THINGS are in Russ' favor.

When you make a CONCLUSION, however, the choice is obvious.

I put the basics of a discussion in all caps. If you need help with any of them, let me know.

I'd argue that thinking Alex Smith isn't a bust is homerism at it's finest, but neither point is relevant.

RG3 is rookie of the year.

If he had the 6th rated D instead of the 18th rated D, this argument wouldn't even exist.
