Marvez’s Ballot - NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

1. Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins

It took RG3 one game to display the makings of an NFL superstar. But a near-perfect performance in that 40-32 season-opening victory in New Orleans was just the start of things to come. Griffin’s flawless execution of read-option concepts have helped generate 748 rushing yards and some of the league’s gaudiest passing statistics (66.4 completion percentage, 18 touchdowns and just four interceptions). If the Redskins don’t make the playoffs and Indianapolis does, I could be swayed to vote for Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck instead.

2. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts

The most ballyhooed quarterback entering the NFL since Peyton Manning, Luck has lived up to the hype while replacing his predecessor in Indianapolis. Luck has taken a beating with 37 sacks and numerous other hard hits playing behind a patchwork offensive line. But he has always shown resiliency, especially in the second half when the Colts usually play their best football. Luck, though, isn’t as protective of the football as Washington’s Robert Griffin III. Luck has 18 interceptions, many of which have come on overthrows (a recurring problem), and five lost fumbles. Griffin has only four interceptions and two fumbles along with eight games where he didn’t commit a turnover. In comparison, Luck has played turnover-free in just three games. - Alex Marvez (AP Photos: Matt Strasen/Paul Sancya)
