I was thinking how odd it is that every fanbase would most likely keep their rookie QB. Maybe not Cleveland, but he's not too terrible.
It's not lazy. Look at the results. Both have come in with extraordinary hype. Both have been productive. However, both aren't winning at the moment. Both defenses have let their rookie QB's down. That is the extent of my comparision. But that's alot of similarities. They numbers are very comparable aside from Newton's 6 more INT.
Newton (8 games (wk 9 bye))= 2393 yards, 60.1 Comp%, 11 TD's, 9 INT, 319 rushing yds, 7 Td's. 18 Total TD's.
Robert Griffin (9 games)= 1993 yards, 65% comp%, 8 TD's, 3 INT, 529 yards rushing, 6 TD's. 14 Total TD's
I wasn't implying that their styles were similar or not. Nor was I arguing that they are similar in terms of their leadership ability. I haven't watched enough of either to make a statement on those items.
I think what Luck is doing is more impressive. Both Luck and RG3 have equally bad teams but Luck is doing more to carry his team IMO. Both are showing good promise as is Wilson and Tannehill. The jury seems to be still out on Weeden.
