Luck's had a fantastic year, no doubt. But other than the GB win, the Colts haven't beat anybody.........and I expect them to get destroyed in the playoffs by whoever they play.
Leading comeback victories over NE, GB and Chicago > Leading comeback victories over Titans, Jags and Bills.
Mirer was the runner up for OROY. Jerome Bettis won that award.
According to Mr. Wiki, Mirer was the "AFL-AFC Rookie of the Year" for the 1993 calendar year.
Also according to Mr. Wiki, Bettis is the actual AP Offensive Rookie of the Year for 1993.
Of course, there are multiple organizations that bestow awards, including Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, Pro Football Weekly, etc. Maybe Mirer won one of those nice awards.
(Ah yes, after looking further, it appears that the UPI split its awards by conference. Bettis won the NFC version of that award. And the UPI stopped doing it in 1996, so it's clear that we don't have to worry about Wilson following in Mirer's footsteps.)
