Russell Wilson wins Pepsi Max Rookie of the Year

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Not the AP award, but a little consolation, I suppose.

  • Voting breakdown? Guess it probably doesn't matter since it was a "vote as much as you want" system, but curiosity still eats at me anyway.

    Wilson won this award instead of the actual ROY for two reasons:

    #1: Fans are genuinely voting for who they think is the best player, or the player with the best reputation. There is probably a bias towards who played best at the end of the season. AP voters are generally voting for who they think was the best story.

    #2: Wilson's media coverage didn't take off until the AP vote deadline was approaching. The Pepsi Max voting stayed open for roughly a month longer. That really benefited Wilson, who has become one of the darlings of the NFL in that same time frame.

    Shame the AP voting didn't happen after the season ended. I am reasonably sure Wilson would have won it.

    Pepsi ROY also included the post season so thats why he won, RG3 had a better regular season but Wilsons post season was by far the most impressive.

  • Hmm. Is it time to respect the fan voting over the AP?

  • Voting for Rookie of the Year is a joke. I have no idea why it doesn't include the post season. So if Russell Wilson were to have had the best post-season in history for a quarterback, lead his team to the Superbowl, and win Superbowl MVP, that wouldn't do anything for him for winning the award? That makes no sense to me. The award should include the post-season, not just the regular season.

    I have started to wonder about that. More like "Rookie of the Regular Season".
    When RW does win the Lombardi, RGIII will be a funny little footnote on his epic ass. (kudos if anyone gets the movie reference)

  • The fact that the AP award is voted on BEFORE the entire season is over, including playoffs, is all you need to know about the joke it is.

    That and the fact that there's only like what... 50 or so east coast elitists that hold the privelege to vote... there should be several hundred voters so that hopefully there's some small amount of integrity in the process maintained...
