Robert Griffin III is the offensive rookie of the month for November

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck got the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, but the NFL has named the guy drafted right behind him as the best offensive rookie for the month of November.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been named winner of the monthly honor for the second time this season. He also won it in September with Buccaneers running back Doug Martin getting the nod for October.

Griffin and the Redskins opened November with a loss to the Panthers, but they returned from their bye with two straight wins to move to 5-6 on the season. Griffin threw eight touchdowns and nine incompletions in those two games, an impressive pair of performances that also netted him the NFC offensive player of the week for Week 11’s 14-of-15 performance against the Eagles.

He joins Sam Bradford as the only quarterbacks to be named offensive rookie of the month twice in the same season. Bradford went on to be named rookie of the year, although the Rams couldn’t win in Week 17 to get themselves into the playoffs. Griffin seems like a good bet for the individual honors and a playoff berth could still be in the cards if he keeps playing at the level of the last two weeks.

    Congrats to RG3 for the award. This is a loaded rookie class and I’m glad he’s one of the best

    Rookie of the year, Luck doesn’t stand a chance.

    I don’t mean to stir up controversy with my radical opinions, but Robert Griffin III is pretty darn good.

    I love how the RG3 haters stopped coming up with nicknames after the Skins won their 4th game. For that reason alone, he deserves this award.

    Luck and Colts 7-4, Robby and Skins 5-6…Colts were expected to struggle again this season. There is your Rookie of the Year

    If RGIII had Luck’s numbers, i’d be pretty upset.

    If the Giants had the Skins record, I wouldn’t be on here talking smack.

    Here’s a FACT. The Colts season schedule has 11 out 16 losing teams vs 4 out 16 losing teams for the Redskins. Skins have played a much tougher schedule. Case closed…RG3 rookie of the year. Point blank period.

    Luck is better right now, also will have a better and longer career. Point. Blank. Exclamation.

    Great job Robert!
    Hail To The Redskins!

    @skinsfan91

    Do you mean you would be upset if rg3 had Luck’s winning record as opposed to the losing record he is currently stuck with?

    “I really wish my QB had a completion percentage of 57% and an equal number of TDs to INTs.”

    – said no one ever

    @ddogdaddy

    I wasn’t aware Andrew Luck played defense and limited your opponents to a lot less points than the Redskins D has. I thought he just played on offense where he has 18 td’s to 13 to’s. Where as RGIII has 22 td’s to 5 to’s. Not to mention his many other accolades and accomplishments he’s picked during his rookie campaign.

    I’ll just say it once more 7-4, or 5-6 and head coach wrote call of season 2 weeks ago. Sorry Skins fans, there’s always next year?
