This is what is so mind-boggling about your posts. Nobody is even arguing about whether or not RGIII "IS" the Redskins offense, because
he IS. It's just totally beside the point... because they both
Andrew Luck currently has 537 pass attempts, 49 rushing attempts and has been sacked 32 times. His other running backs combined for 307 rushing attempts. Counting sacks as pass attempts, that's 618 plays that depended directly on Luck to 307 that didn't, or 66.8% of the Colt's offense.
RGIII currently has 351 pass attempts, 112 rushes and has been sacked 28 times. His running backs have combined for 302 rushes. Again counting sacks as pass attempts, RGIII has had a total of 491 plays. Adding the plays Kirk Cousins has accounted for in brief injury relief, RGIII has accounted directly for 60.9% of his team's offense.
Those are 700+ yards that he's added by to the team as well so when you factor in everything Luck Only averages like 37 +\- ypg than RG3 (not that much really) and RG3 has missed some time so the number would probably be a bit closer had he not.
I like how you take Luck's having 37 ypg more than RGIII (which is
a lot by the way) and conveniently make it a "+/-", as if you can actually do that. It's +37.
