    So disappointed in the poll this week. RGIII didnt deserve it. It was an average week at best but yet he wins. Wilson had a much better week, as did Luke Kuechly. Kuechly though like in the pro bowl voting isnt flashy but just a very good football player.

      I would tend to agree with you this week. Clearly, Redskins fans are stuffing the ballot box. :) I did think Russell Wilson was the choice this week.

    Completely biased by Skins fans. The Obvious answer was Wilson. 49ers were the top scoring defense going into week 16. Wilson and the Seahawks put up 42 points on them. This should have been Wilson all the way. I mean. How is a 7 point win against the EAGLES impressive in any standard? Wilson should’ve taken it.

    The ‘Skins are on fire this year. Ten wins from three different players, including two QBs. Crazy!

    This is completely wrong. Boooooo!! This is the third week in a row I don’t agree.

    In the last two weeks, Wilson has scored 8 touchdowns, yet has been beaten out by poor Redskins performances. Obviously, the RG3 hype is helping stuff the ballot box.

    Russell Wilson deserves it he killed one of the best teams in the NFL. As RGIII won by a touchdown to one of the worst teams in the NFL. Redskins fans are loading the votes 6 redskins in a row?

    Both Wilson and Kuechly are more deserving.
