    I disagree, but I'm a bit biased.

    Luck got robbed. Heck RGIII was not even the best rookie non his own team.

    I would have voted for Luck . . . . but it will be interesting to see how Luck's and RGIII's respective careers progress.

    I think it should have gone to Wilson but likely would have gone to RG3 if he had remained healthy. Combined with his strong start, I can see why he got it but Wilson played tougher opponents, stepped his game up big time and ultimately went further.

    Should've been Luck, then Wilson, then Morris and then Griffin.

    So many Redskins fans and they're so fanatical about Griffin (almost to a clinical psychological issue level) that they just voted over and over and over until he won when he wasn't even the best rookie on his team.

    Redskin fans were plain desperate for him to win that award. It is entertaining really, looking from the outside in.

    Bob's career is gonna be breif unfortunately. Two major knee reconstruction surgeries on the same knee within a 4yr span, that isn't good at all. I bet that knee goes out again on him in the near future. I'm not wishing bad luck on the guy, I just think that's too much on one knee.

    Wilson should have won it IMO.

    I would have understood Wilson but remember the vote was at the end of the regular season when Griffin had just led the Skins to the their first division title in 14 years. As for Morris being better, history is on Shanahans side of finding 6th round steals. I hope he is the next Terrell but Griffins abilities certainly took some of the defenses focus off him.

    And likewise Morris took a ton of pressure and focus off of RG3 because they couldn't forget that Morris could run the hell out of the ball.

    That's my take on his career as well.

    Like you, I'm not wishing ill on the player.

    Agreed. He wouldn't have been in my top 5 rookies this year. A horrible decision. It's a product of media hype.

    True, but there are mic'd up moments like Jared Allens flabbergast at how to handle Griffin, and his 76 yd jaunt for the winning score.

    I know its a Cowboys board, and that Griffin most probably not have the longest NFL career, but this year, what he did for the skins franchise, gave him the edge. All 3 QBs had some areas of stats that were, in a normal year, locks for the award. Griffin was the only one though that led his team to their 1st division title in 10+ years and revitalized a franchise that you all know has long been the doormat in the division.

    Oh, you mean when he was throwing for 100 yards on a 50% completion percentage? That season defining game?

    No. Not the playoff game. The week before too.

    Yeah. Morris was actually relevant into winning the game. Griffin was carried there in probably the worst QB performance in the league this year. Only his playoff performance rivals it.

    Luck was absolutely robbed. He had less to work with than the other 2. And Wilson had that nasty D. Give Luck that Seahawk squad and there's no doubt they'd be in the SB or at least the NFCC

    We'll laugh at this voting result when it's all said and done...

    Of course...RG3 was great for the NFL this year. This is his time. But Russell Wilson will be the real winner from this group. Luck is the most talented, RG3 is the flashiest and most marketable, Wilson just wins
