Rookie Of The Year For NFL
This may be the best rookie class in the history of the NFL, making the NFL Rookie of the Year award one of the most competitive ever. I am convinced Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, and Doug Martin are showing us what to expect for the future of the NFL.
Another less mentioned name is Alfred Morris, RB Washington Redskins, who deserves to be included in the conversation but has been in the shadow of his rookie counterpart RG3. That’s the Rookie of the Year stats are mind-blowing when you compare them to other Hall of Fame quarterbacks and their rookie season.
They are entering the league more ready than ever with coaches smart enough to game plan to the strength of their game, not making them conform to the NFL. This has been seen mostly in Washington where the Redskins are confusing NFL defenses with the offense that RG3 ran at Baylor.
A plan that could see them to the playoffs in the NFC wild card game this year. Andrew Luck has handled the playbook and has been asked to throw the ball more than any rookie QB in history. To his credit he has led the Indianapolis Colts to what will most likely be a playoff spot in the AFC.
If Russell Wilson and the Seattle defense keep up their play they too could be headed to the post season. Again this is true with Doug Martin and the Tampa Bay Bucs as well. All five of these rookies could make the post season in 2012! What a great year to be a rookie, and fan, in the NFL. The voters will have their hands full with this years NFL Rookie of they year vote.
No matter who is chosen it could easily go to anyone. I believe that Andrew Luck has had the biggest impact and done more with less than any other in the debate. Should make for an exciting finish of the regular season.
