    just skip all this nonsence and give it to him every week, this is all the media will see, its what sell, just like when tigers made it to the world series, yea they talk about it then they went to an interview arod and ask the same thing they do every year , why was your post season so bad, every year the same freaking question, the yankees this the yakees that, same in football.

      I agree completely, The Seahawks beat the Patriots, and they havent done that for like 20 years, Russel Wilson had more yards in that game than RG3, and he made the winning touchdown pass to Sidney Rice, so i think it should have been Russel Wilson, and serously RG3 has gotten it three times and Andrew Luck has gotten it twice, come on Panini, be more original…
