How many hard hits did he take when running the ball last week? One in the 4th when he was trying to stay in bounds. That's it, right?
The biggest hits he is taking right now are in the pocket, b/c our oline is not great at pass protection. That used to be something QBs were complimented on, standing tough in the pocket, throwing the ball knowing you were about to get popped in the mouth, then getting right up.
But honestly at this point, I really don't care if he gets ROTY are not. We have a franchise QB. Makes me grin just thinking about it. All I wanted going into this season was hope for the future. We have so much more than that it's crazy. I'm more than satisfied. ROTY is meaningless. We have multiple winning seasons and playoff appearances to look forward to. ROTY and MVP and pro bowls are consolation prizes
