Earlier this week we heard of the finalists for the NFL rookie of the year award. You guys all have your ballot you get cast it right here. Was your rookie of the year because a couple of the candidates are playing against each other in one of the games today and another candidate playing and another one of the games that I would you guys. Candidates I -- two candidates are RG three Russell Wilson Andrew Luck. And I'll have more -- And there was one other name there's five etiquette the thinking needles and anti no no no it's not an oil and and I'll look it up but it there's a different name. There is a running back in their yes yes I think you I think what Morse Morse. It's -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So Robert Morris Doug Martin and elect Russell Wilson Robert group in the third great quarterbacks to running regardless of which where -- though with you know bull locks -- The book touchdown interception with RG 320. Is eighteen picks up like that it is eat out all doubled to I don't -- -- -- -- any in the past two weeks that he's had a good stretch when it touched on each team picks. I guess my thinking would be if you were -- him you know if you don't sort of DeVon house likes that things and -- sort of wait how much you -- -- I would say touch faster at least. Two halftime maybe even three due to a pick. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- His ability to. Hold on the ball he would tend to not treatable look at the guys in RG -- completed 62 passes. 3200 yards twenty TDs five receptions record rejected veteran bats from that that more than. You're looking at Russell Wilson number Russell Wilson 26 touchdowns and an exception. A 64% completion ratio red two and had one right it would have to won yeah in. We look at it over the course the regular season in -- wondering if Wilson who DO use you look at the three teams as they're designed in at least. My experience Seattle has the best chance to -- -- -- will see this earnings can be fast -- to today between -- Washington but if you're asking mean. I'm goal -- -- urgent treatment is -- repeat your. I am -- If I had a vote today he's the guy is this consensus in this room -- that's three Kevin on your boss. And I don't know you know my second place vote goes to offer Morse Morse at meets him. South out towards the -- without a part of where they'll write about that rap class. Is too and we talked about this acting. You need to do if she and hand in to some extent the that the folks need decent credit exposed the folks in -- commuted the did not train banks where -- -- -- -- they took these young quarterbacks. In the plea to their strengths as opposed to trying to say to try to be dogmatic consider. This is the system you have to run -- victory in the NFL I I wonder and we talked about this before well. I wonder if that's going to be able to the to be able to beat that to the next -- extra because there's gonna be years with the tape on them. It's on them now to meet the adjustments to a -- to become better quarterback -- -- a -- -- -- quarterback they're close is it just does that take some Lenovo steam out of the argument -- -- RG three cousins comes as thousands -- Decker goes into cars and parts you know Alfred -- 330 factories 1613. Yards four point your -- thirteen touchdowns four point as the number jumps out at me. Four point eight -- care. And by the way a sixth round draft pick. Was either. Six Brown's music again any guy in Kevin you can speak to this inning guy enters the ball more than 300 times and averages more than forger to carry. That's. That's a pretty special and. I noted put the three and educator remark out there. Are owned by parent communicate happy with -- if you care to Baltimore in four yards a -- In the NF. You doing something in to do it as a rookie. And to do it the way it looked the way he was doing to us as fans that's awesome because you don't expect anyone like that to do what he did as a rookie running back. My -- my point with a 300 yard or the secretary markets that usually from me separates the guys who largest in the immediate if you if you're carry the ball or through an attempt. You're number one back right or you're you're you're feature back in you can be counted on a regular basis week in week out to did you know when he. Plus touches in if a guy hits 335 carries as a rookie averages four point eager African -- some special you know what's kind of dissimilar to. That efficiency quarterback who has done a great job is that dangers of the backfield you've got to back with that kind of production and it's still -- wheels off of I mean did did scared prepare for orcas are a little bit difficult book that's the -- teams -- put thirty on. And I think the attention about the -- it's still matters the stable still matters your arsenal was gone for a lot of year. And you know I'd -- -- -- on Twitter just jokingly but it would be interest in the seat. How and how much different when you feel about India they had a panicked and -- or so ago to Washington and he was there now. You can match and she wailed in your arsenal and then -- as the vet with -- one to throw to. What that group would look like now how much -- was financial because our president because -- honestly got ridiculous way to Egypt India and you know the government a thousand -- receive -- I think it was more potential and but -- the idea though again when they were that good it was because of Dallas Clark -- because of Marvin Harrison and because of wind because they had three stop. Now I think that's locked in on policy council part of -- seeking to XP on just the decision making that he's got Wayne who's there he -- to -- -- You know joystick kind of underneath guy. Not as much -- in -- -- -- and now larger backers are good but not solid but the aren't as many places school the ball and I think that often sort of is reflected in the quarterback's numbers. CNET live results of the in the year that's really kicked the crap out of that whole argument about you can't play rookie quarterback in the NFL -- -- yeah. I mean I can't help but we just all go. Integrating the paid by to bring a fresh out of college here with the had a lot of affectionately Russell. -- -- -- -- I mean they'll hold rookie quarterback thing at -- bear I think you can also bring -- happening intimate discussions will be test you for all intents and purposes as a rookie -- why I'm -- -- because. In in Kevin you can speak to this is a running back Maurice and we see some of it in San Francisco's wild -- read option. What is that do for running back in in his ability to BBC to field and do some things -- did that maybe he couldn't necessarily do we know profits does I don't think he does anything for him. I think it. Speaks volume for the quarterbacks -- dual did -- operate computers and a it it does a lot for quarterback's mental aspect. Because it. It puts a lot more on his plate because he has to read into that we seat at a Washington residency for Cisco it and that. But -- uniform quarterback in high school -- death for you it gives you more feel of control sense of control. If you have control of its display is going to be successful or not. And you have to read it successfully. And and asked what it does for -- as a quarterback because if you -- great read like we see your DP do a lot of parents. It's usually a wide open corner for him to run the ball any -- gives it to run in -- From Mars is usually run for four point thus -- --
