These are Pro Football Focus's ratings for each QB by week.
I've seen people mention that he's got 7 come from behind wins, and therefore deserves the RoY Award. They never mention it's his mistakes in quarters 1-3 that force him to come from behind.
Lol, those Colts fans on that board. "Luck is way better than RG3, he threw for more yards and played every game so he deserves pro bowl honors more!" Matt Stafford threw for the 2nd most yards in the league, surprised Colts fans aren't riled at him missing out. It's just mindblowing that they are literally stuck on one stat. You can point out 8 major stats where RG3 has outplayed Luck and they will time and again go right back to total passing yards as the definitive stat for qb's.
I think the most telling thing is when coaches talk about facing these 3 teams. For Indy you hear them talk about their heart because of their coach, for Seattle they talk about their defense and how hard it is to play in seattle, but for us they talk about how impossible RG3 is to stop. Opposing coaches only want to talk about RG3 when they talk about us, the same can not be said for the other two teams; and I respect what coaches focus on because they're the ones who know their stuff.
The AP OROY award is based on 50 voters that the AP selects. They each only get 1 vote unlike the Heisman where they can select 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Bottom line is that the Pro Bowl selection was a far bigger accomplishment since it is only the second time in history it has ever been accomplished by a rookie QB. Also, since 2/3 of the voting is based on NFL players and NFL coaches voting, it is far more relevant than a skewed system setup by AP.
The other problem with AP's system is that the same voters who vote for OROY also vote for NFL MVP. Since each of the 50 voters only gets a single vote in each category, it unfairly disadvantages rookies from getting MVP votes because a voter is probably very unlikely to cast his only 2 votes for the same name.
Here is an article from last year from Florio discussing the flaws:
RG3 took a pro bowl spot from Drew Brees. What more can you ask for from a rookie?
