I think RG3's intelligence (and the Shanny's scheme and playcalling) plus his talent is behind his incredible efficiency and %'s. That might be unprecedented for a rookie.
I forget the exact order but I think my list of best rookie QB's before was as follows.

1. RG3
2. Dan Marino
3. Big Ben
4. Matt Ryan
5. Cam Newton

Now with Luck and Wilson playing as well as they have I don't know what to do, though I do feel confident bumping Newton off. And I think I can at least put Wilson above Ryan, the real question is should he go above Marino and Big Ben. Though I still say Luck should be below Ryan. F it I'll do it.

1. RG3
2. Wilson
3. Marino
4. Big Ben
5. Cam Newton
6. Matt Ryan
7. Andrew Luck

At the very least they're all in the top tier as far as rookie QB's are concerned.

Edit: Sorry Newton should be above Ryan at least. On second thought Newton could be as high as 2 or 3. Bottom line a lot of these are interchangeable though I still feel comfortable putting RG3 at number 1. The combination of yardage, efficiency, and team success is unparalleled.

I won't argue against any of your post. Couldn't come up with a better list myself. Just to nitpick your list though :cheeky-sm would Peyton fall anywhere in there? (as a rookie, trying to not think of his career overall)

If RGIII takes the Redskins to the SB and wins, I would crown him rookie the century!!

I'd say he's the best QB in the entire league if that happens. I hope I have to say that

Re: RG3 talent is unprecedented in NFL history!

Nice little stop and go highlight vid. Really shows how fast RG3 thinks and reacts, his allusiveness and arm strength.
Also shows his ability to take a mental snapshot of his receivers while scrambling to deliver a dead accurate ball from any position.
