Indy lost to the Jags and Jets. They got blown out by the Jets. They're barely beating the middle of the pack and bad teams in their schedule. That's cool that they're beating the Browns, the Titans, and the Dolphins, but those aren't good teams.
Indy's best win is against the Packers. Well done. Let's see how they do agains the Texans. They have yet to play them.
And as for wins, that's a team stat. The QB doesn't get full credit for those no matter what ESPN says. Let's compare their records at the end of the year just the same. Let's compare their seasons then too.
Right now, Griffin has the edge.

The difference is Shanahan. He likes to run the ball to keep defenses off balance. Morris is the beneficiary of Shanahan's offensive game planning and Griffin's ability to strike from anywhere on the field. Kudos to him for seizing the opportunity and running with it. Most RBs are shuffled week to week lol under Shanahan the last few seasons.
