This year’s rookie quarterbacks have been well documented. From the beginning of last year, everyone knew who the number one pick would be; Andrew Luck.  He took a team that only won two total games in 2011 and turned them into a playoff team. He has a bright future. RG3, the second overall pick in last year’s draft has given new life to Washington DC, with his electrifying play style, and is the main reason the Redskins won the NFC East. He also has a bright future. But the rookie of the year should not be either of them. It should be the rookie who was not drafted until the third round. It should be the rookie who had to fight to earn his starting job.… Read more

  • No disrespect to Luck or RGIII, Wilson was head and shoulders above them in his work ethic and a learning curve that went exponential as soon as Pete turned him loose. His brain power appears to be greater than his athletic ability, which is undeniably prodigious. Its great to be a Sea Hawks fan again.
    Go SeaHawks!!!
  • @Ms_Fan "head and shoulders above them in his work ethic"???? Seriously . . . did you read any other papers besides the Seattle Times? You think Luck or RG3 didn't match his effort? I won't deny Wilson is impressive but how would he have fared with the scrubs Luck had to play with. Or the idiot coach RG3 had to overcome. I am glad Seahawks fans are back to their delusions of grandeur, it always makes it more fun to watch when they fall.
  • delusional like the skins are with RG3 and his twice torn acl or the colts with luck the int throwing machine? Or are we talking about the rookie qb who tied Peyton Manning for rookie touchdown passes?
  • I'm glad the Seahawks have Wilson, wouldn't trade him for anyone, but as far as Rookie of the Year, it's so close you could put RG3,Luck,Wilson, and Alfred Morris' names in a hat and draw
  • Rookie, smookie, who cares.
    Here's the real juice.
    Seattle would trade Wilson, their next three first round picks and a couple of front line starters to the Colts for Luck right now.
