Great piece about the "Gang of Four: Luck, RGIII, Wilson, Kap"
Barnwell ranks their 2012's and who will have the best 2013 season. Great piece that you should check out. Its great to read objective feedback from a national sports writer. Anyone on ninersnation would say Kap is the best, Sando would list Wilson, Stampede Blue would list Luck and Hogs Heaven would list RGIII. All 4 would be right and really there is no clear answer on 7/17/13. I think all 4 teams feel VERY confident in the future of the QB position and would not trade their guy for anyone not named Aaron Rogers.
As far as 2012....
Wilson really did have an amazing end of the year, the numbers reflect that. Sure one of those games was against the Bills who Alex Smith carved up, but still, he beat us up pretty good too.
Kap had some tough games down the stretch especially going to NE who never loses at home in December, was on a 7 game win streak and just beat the tar out of the Texans at home the week before. Kap faced adversity better than all 4 of the QB's in my mind.
I knew RGIII had a sick year, just didn't realize HOW sick, WOW!
Luck is a true gunslinger.
For 2013, as it stands today, you would have to agree with Wilson being in the best position to succeed in 2013. He was masterful at the end of the year and added Harvin to an already deep WR core. With Lynch scaring teams, Wilson will still have plenty of 1-1 matchups on the outside to exploit. The kid is cool and calm under pressure and is much more advanced than Kap at going through his reads. Hopefully Colin makes a big leap this year and stops staring down his receivers. If it wasn't for Colin's gun, his numbers would be a lot worse. If he can combine that arm with better vision and recognition, I think he has the biggest upside of the 4, but not having Crabs in 2013 will be a challenge for sure. Lets see if the mad scientist Jimbo can mold this piece of clay into a masterpiece!!!! If I was a bettin man for who would be better long term, Id push all my chips in on the CK square!!!
