Political: Ok, he's not a god but Rookie of the Year, you Betcha
I'd like to see Seattle play the Redskins but there is something to say about playing someone you already beaten.

Dal/Was 7-7 at the 2 minute 1st half.

Seattle was a playoff team last year. The Colts were the worst team in football. Luck has to be rookie of the year.

In a typical year Wilson may have has a chance at the ROY, however, with all of the ink that Luck and RG III received throughout the year he will be third at best. Not saying he was not the hidden gem of the draft but playing in Seattle will not help his chances.

You're right Mulligan. For much of the country football only exists east of the Mississippi and in Texas.
He'll have to win a superbowl to beat the bias.

All 3 QB's have a legit claim to the ROY award. Wilson may not have received the initial hype like Luck/RG3, but there's been no shortage of love for him over the last half of the season. If he doesn't win ROY, he'll be just fine.
I'll be rooting for long term success of all 3 of these guys. They all seem to be smart, focused and excellent ambassadors for their teams and the NFL.

Of course as you see in most postes the biased is driven by position. Doug Martin fell just shy of 2,000 total yards from scrimage and Alfred Morris set a team record for rushing yards. Both excellent rookie efforts. So before everybody says it, I know Martin could not get the Bucs into the playoffs and the others mentioned all helped their team make the playoffs. That being said, we haven't even touched on the excellent rookies who played on the other side of the ball. Overall, no team added more talented rookies than the Bucs. Between Barron, Martin and David the Bucs have laid a tremendous foundation for years to come. A few FA moves and another draft like 2012 and they will be in excellent position for a playoff run in 2013. And yes, they will go as far as Freeman will take them. He had some real stinker games but overall had a decent year.
