    Russell Wilson takes this week since he played the toughest team and put up the best stats.

    When a rookie QB breaks a major record during a game that clinches a playoff birth and does so without a turnover it makes the choice pretty clear. Considering it was the last meaningful game of the regular season, I believe Luck deserves the honor and I hope both Colts and non-Colts fans should cast their votes for him. Thanks Tracy

    And the winner should be??? Mr. Wilson. He killed the 49ers who all believe are going to the Super Bowl. Week 16 is all Wilson!

    Wison is the winner by a mile. He killed the 49er’s. He should have won week 14 and 15 too.

    Wilson should win. All of these last few weeks. He’s led his team to 150 points in the last 3 weeks. How is that anything short of AMAZING? Im sorry, but Luck should be out of the discussion. He has the worst stats of the three. And is overrated. Wilson and RG3 should be the debate. With Wilson winning if RG3 doesnt make playoffs.
