I know I’m going to get heat for this one especially from Dallas Cowboys fans, and I know while Tony Romo had an excellent day last Wednesday. That being said, in my opinion Washington Redskins rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III (photoed above) should be considered the Offensive Player of the Week.

Robert Griffin III, the second overall draft pick, and Heisman trophy winner from a year ago completed nineteen of his twenty six passes for 320 yards, had two touchdown passes, and had a Quarterback Rating of 139.9. It would be one thing if he did this at home, while it would still be very impressive against the New Orleans Saints, but he did it on the road in the Mercedes Benz Superdome or what locals in New Orleans call the “Loud Dome” as it’s considered one of the loudest stadiums in sports. For any of you that haven’t witnessed this stadium in person, I went down to the city back in May of this year, and it truly is an awe inspiring sight to say the least, it is worthy of all the championships that have been played there regardless of sport.

Other players I considered for the Offensive Player of the Week:

Tony Romo – He went 22 for 29 with 307 yards and three touchdowns and one interception against the New York Giants.

C.J. Spiller – Might be a homer pick, but he did rush for 169 yards on fourteen carries and one touchdown and he had two receptions for 25 yards despite getting blown out by the New York Jets.

I welcome your input in who you think should be the Offensive Player of the Week, either leave a comment on here or hit me up Twitter @TheProfessorSD! I hope to hear from anyone and everyone that are fans of all 32 teams.
