Doesn't this make the decision to endanger him in the Seattle game all the more stupid?

You have the ROTY as your QB but he's injured.  He should have a long career ahead of him but you keep him out there even though its blatantly obvious something is wrong with his leg?

I think Luck should have gotten it, since he had absolutely nothing but Reggie Wayne. RG3 had a solid running game and a halfway decent defense. But good for him. We'll see how well he does next year.

RG III, Luke Kuechly are top rookies

Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins has won The Associated Press 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award, beating out two other sensational first-year quarterbacks.

Griffin, whose thrill-a-minute combination of running and passing skills led Washington to its first NFC East title in 13 years, pulled away from Andrew Luck of the Colts and Russell Wilson of the Seahawks in a lopsided vote announced Saturday.

RG III earned 29 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. Luck was next with 11 and Wilson got 10.

All three led their teams to the playoffs.

Griffin, who severely injured his right knee in a wild-card loss to the Seahawks, set the NFL record for best passer rating by a rookie QB.

He accepted his award at the "2nd Annual NFL Honors" awards show on CBS saluting the NFL's best players, performances and plays from the 2012 season.

Defensive Rookie of the Year


Linebacker Luke Kuechly, Carolina's tackling machine, has won the Associated Press 2012 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

Kuechly, a first-round pick from Boston College, led the league with 164 tackles. He began the season on the outside but moved to middle linebacker five games into the season and the Panthers went from 24th in the league in overall defense to 10th.

He earned 28 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. That easily outdistanced Seattle LB Bobby Wagner with 11.

Green Bay cornerback Casey Hayward got six votes, while St. Louis CB Janoris Jenkins got three. Tampa Bay LB Lavonte David got the other two votes.

He is the second Panther to win the award; DE Julius Peppers got it in 2002.

Kuechly accepted his award Saturday night.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

RG3's numbers would have been the same if he got stuck on a team with no running game to speak of. Alfred Morris really made Rg3's job easier.

Various members of the Dallas defense said it best before the season finale vs washington, they said they were more worried about stopping Alfred Morris than RG3. Morris should have been the ROY

Do you think DeMarcus Ware would be running in circles trying to figure out who was taking the ball on those option plays if the Redskins QB was Rex Grossman? It's the other way around; Alfred Morris can thank RG3 and Shannahan's run scheme for his success. Alfred Morris on the Lions would probably be a below average RB.

He won by default because his team won the division unlike Luck and Wilson.

I think RG3 would trade the award for his knee ligaments.

Would take the other 2 in the future.

Russell got the ESPN hype too late in the year. Then Kaepernick carried the torch afterwards

Luck takes a team with the worst record the previous year and gets them to the playoffs the very next year -- and he doesn't win it?

How many games did the experts pick the Colts to win this year 3-4???

Without Cousins, the Skins wouldn't have made the playoffs.

Luck definitely deserved it. Turned the worst team in the NFL in an impossible situation into a playoff team.

Luck can surpass it and go for the MVP next year when Griffin is sitting on the sidelines in a knee brace.

This. There is zero doubt in my mind that the Bob hype they put out 24/7 is responsible. Wilson had comparable, and in some cases BETTER numbers than Bob and Luck. Anyone who didn't see this coming should get their eyes checked. All 3 QB's had great seasons, and it really could have gone to any of them if you put the numbers side by side and nothing more. It was the massive hype that pushed Bob over the top in a big way.

I'd still take Wilson over Bob any day of the week.

You have no idea how stupid you sound, do you?

No one said Bob sucked, and had no business winning ROY. Lotion? Sounds to me like you're gonna need some mouthwash when this is all over. Dont forget to gargle

I'd have picked Russell Wilson. I'm fine with RG III as ROY, but if asked to vote I'd go with Wilson.

The NFL is blessed to have these good young QBs; and as fans, we should be in for a treat for years to come. I just enjoy the fact that the league's quarterback situation has arguably never looked better.
