Robert Griffin III Should Not Have Won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
The NFL has officially become the most unintelligent professional sports league in America when it comes to individual player awards. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, which is an absolute outrage considering the seasons that two other offensive rookies had this year. If you’re a blind Redskins and/or RG3 fan, click away now because you’re not going to like the truth you’re about to hear in the video above and read below.
Griffin wasn’t even the best rookie quarterback in the league this year. It’s a toss-up between him and the Seattle Seahawks‘ Russell Wilson for second place behind the Indianapolis Colts‘ Andrew Luck. Griffin had a good year, don’t get me wrong, but it wasn’t great by any standard and it certainly wasn’t anywhere close to what Luck accomplished. Peyton Manning‘s successor broke nearly every rookie passing record in the book, most of which were set by the man who played quarterback in Indianapolis before him.
Griffin wasn’t even the best offensive rookie on his own team. Redskins running back Alfred Morris eclipsed 1,600 rushing yards, the third-most all-time among rookie rushers. He was the reason the Redskins won the NFC East title, not Griffin.
The voters need to stop picking the winners based on hype and actually watch football before casting their ballots. Either that or put some voters in place who have some sense.
