More turnover, sure.
He also has more wins and he's been playing really well over the last few games whereas RG3 hasn't been playing as well as he was in previous games.
Probably more importantly, Luck has actually been playing QB not just game manager.
RG3 has been great but Luck hasn't been simply managing the game.
RG3 has 1993 passing yards, 1011 of which have come after the catch. 50.73%
Luck has 2631 passing yards, 849 of which have come after the catch. 32.27%
And Luck has the 4th highest Total QBR.
The fact that you didn't even know that Luck has almost as many rushing TDs as RG3 pretty much says you haven't watched him play. You likely haven't even watched RG3 play either.
Ok I was wrong about the touchdowns I just missed it happens. Anyways this is a passing league nowadays. Teams throw it like never before so leading the league in passing yards isn't that big of a deal anymore. His completion percentage is horrible. I don't care how many times he has to throw 57.5 percent is flat out unacceptable. He's only got one more touchdown than a pick and considering the lack of competition he's played against outside of Chicago and Green Bay that's pretty pathetic as well. Point is Luck hasn't been nearly as impressive as some people have said he's been.
