Last night concluded the third week of the NFL season, and the last of the five rookie quarterbacks, Russell Wilson, played his third NFL game. We can now do our weekly look at all five quarterbacks from the week, and update their season stats.
Listed in order in which they were selected in the 2012 Draft, here are the results from Week 2 for each rookie, as well as their season stats:
1. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts (1-2):
2. Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins (1-2):
3. Ryan Tannehill, Miami Dolphins (1-2):
4. Brandon Weeden, Cleveland Browns (0-3):
5. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks (2-1):
The five rookies are all showing strengths in some aspects, and making rookie mistakes in others. Tannehill has dropped to the bottom of the five rookies in passer rating and completion percentage, but to be fair, the team decided to start bombing the ball deep down the field in the second half Sunday, and most of those fell incomplete. RG3, meanwhile, continues to pace the field, with a passer rating over 100.
What do you think of the rookies?
