    PLEASE tell me you will be printing these cards! I love the game-footage, RGIII-Prizm card…also in love with the Contenders design. Too bad Kinko’s won’t let me blow them up into poster size prints :(

    Who actually votes for these? This is nothing but a popularity contest at this point. No way does he deserve it over Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck this past week. What a joke! A sham..fraud..foul..injustice..ok I made my point. I have nothing against him but c’mon after what the others did on Sunday? I have lost all interest now in this as like in a couple other weeks where there should’ve been different winners… this was just the nail in the coffin. Alas a sad day in football.

    This is a sham just like rookie of the year, rg3 didn’t do nearly the work of Wilson or luck, they should just call this the flashiest player award who let the run game do everything for him while he smiled and made himself look like the most important player on the team

    RG3 is a beast. I just worry about his health. Scrambling the way he does his body will have a hard time holding up.

    He is clearly the top rookie based on this data. 6 wins including the last 3, pretty baller numbers!
