Rookie wall means that rookies always become All-Pro's late in the regular season and into the playoffs right?
In all honesty, I think Watt hit the rookie wall around the time Mario got hurt. We didn't see or hear much from either Watt or Smith (or Jamison, or Mitchell).
Then Watt found something (spinach?) around the second Indy game. That's the game he started to take over (imo). Then Saturday you saw Watt, Smith, Mitchell all making noise.
So we're past the rookie wall thing, now we're working on the sophomore slump.
