  • I posted this somewhere yesterday but NFL net did a poll too. It was 58% for RW, like 30% for Luck and the balance obviously to Griffin. I kid you not. Those voters likely looked at the entire picture including offenses ran, opposition, etc. instead of just TD to int ratio and/or QBR. I have no problem with those numbers at all. One more above avg showing from RW and I am now convinced he will win it. He is clearly better than Griffin, Luck is too, so this will rightfully come down to them. RW ROTY!

  • If the actual RoY voters are half as fickle and simple minded as the fans are, then Wilson could probably guarantee the award by beating RG3 in the playoffs and then reaching the championship game. Luck will probably lose to the Texans tomorrow then be one and done in the playoffs. Granted, the Texans are over-rated and the Ravens have been suspect lately, but not neither is as suspect as the Colts.

    This situation reminds me a little of when Felix won the Cy Young a few years ago. People thought he had no chance, but then he got very hot at the end of the season and lo and behold, he shocked the world and won it.

    Waitasec. When is this voted on/announced?? Mid-playoffs? Or post-post-season?

    It's because lots of the media have been pushing the "He turned a 2-win team into a 10-win team" line. What they don't mention ist that the Colts had the easiest schedule (precisely because they were a 2-win team) and that they lost some games on purpose last year in their "Suck for Luck" campaign. Their talent wasn't 2-win talent.

  • Last year it was announced the day before the Superbowl. No idea when the vote is taken but it would be strange to hold onto the results for over a month.

    Shouldn't be that hard to figure out... It's because his coach got Leukemia and they had no QB last year. The "dramatic turn around" the Colts have made this year is BS. If they have anyone behind Peyton Manning that wasn't a complete scrub in 2011, there is no way they go 2-14.

    John Clayton, who has an AP vote for the OROY, said on ESPN710 radio about a week ago that he has to have his vote submitted within a week after week 17 games are complete. Essentially, prior to Wild Card weekend getting underway. I'm assuming his deadline is Friday at midnite... just a guess.

    fwiw.

  • I believe he'll win the ROTY, but is "League MVP" out of the question? Is it written somewhere that rookies can't win it? Who's been more valuable?

  • No part of me thinks that Wilson will lose any competitive edge if he gets the award. He's got plenty of big goals (multiple Super Bowl rings) ahead of him.

    You are right...he is one that will go out and PROVE that the correct choice was make or he will go out at PROVE that wrong choice was make if he doesn't get it.
