Congrats Bob on being Rookie Of The Year. Get well soon. AP reports Bob received 29 votes, Luck got 11, Russell Wilson got 10.

Wow even Luck got more votes than Wilson, what gives?

The Griffin hype machine was too strong I guess. I think he had a great year, but Russell was better.

Congrats Bob!

He deserved it. Only thing that annoyed me was Luck getting more votes than Wilson. Wilson's stats were way better than young Andrew's.

The writers didnt think so. One won his division, the other did not.

One played in a much tougher division and won a playoff game against the OROY. Not that i disagree with RG3 being chosen. Your line of reasoning is simply flawed.

I thought RG3 was better in the regular season- he was a playmaker from week 1 whereas Wilson was a game manager for the first few weeks before coming on strong later in the season

Wait could not the same thing be applied here? Walking contradiction strikes again.

Russell Wilson is "coach" of the Seahawks? He got that defense and special teams to play as hard as it did? As the earlier poster posted, he was a game manager for the first half of the season, while RG3 carried his team on his back all year. Is it possible I think Pete Carroll's coaching job > Russell Wilson's rookie year. Is it possible Rg3 > Wilson as QB, while Carroll > Shanny.

I'm arguing with you for the sake of it honestly. I think RG3 deserved it.\


EDIT: A case can definitely be made for Wilson.

Wilson will have plenty of time to win his own awards. This is probably the last time RG3 will play enough games in a season to win one.

[b]if pagano hadn't hoaxed everybody with his made up illnesses and late night phone calls to Luck he would have won oroy. Seriously though being from kentucky its hard to say anything nice about the colts. But thier stinky no good nameless roster and coaches was a far higher climb to the playoffs in my opinion. Skins and seahawks had a somewhat stable structure. The colts had lost everything but Wayne.[/b]

The writers also don't play football. Probably never have, either.

IMHO; Russell Wilson deserved ROY. A strong argument could be made for all 3 quarterbacks AND Bob's running back.

The Colts still had Freeney and Mathis. They also had one of the easiest schedules in the league.

that sounds like an excuse. What all three guys did this year was remarkable. I thought Alfred Morris was more deserving of ROY than Griffin.

he has double standards that are convenient to his argument, which in this one I'm sure he contradicted himself somewhere like placing win losses solely on the QB.

What's their excuse for not even scoring a TD in the playoffs then? Could it possibly be that they were an inferior team that got there due to a weak schedule?

congrats RG3...get well soon, you are great for the game!

that said, I will gladly take Russel Wilson over you and Luck anyday and fully expect him to have the most successful career of the three of you!

Wilson is a boss. I think he's gonna be the best of the 3. I used to not like him cause he went to state but i'm getting over it.

I think that if Carrol and company would have known just what he could do and not started the season with Wilson in handcuffs, he would have not only broken Manning's touchdown record but he would have won ROTY as well.

It's probably more fair to say that he progressed throughout the season more than to assume he was that good at the beginning. I still think he shoulda won though.
