    ^^^ Battling. I agree about Leslie. He has the talent and skills. Howell is getting the most ink right now. His double doubles are really strong. Leslie probably doesn't like all of this stuff.

    Get what you're saying, Hokie, but the ballots were cast prior to the playoffs. Based on that,... View More

    We agree Battling. No one is in front of Manning--for sure.

    Agreed, Hokie! I still think State has the potential to do good things. They're very balanced on offense. Leslie is playing well but I saw something in the BC game that needs to be addressed for the sake of the team. Late in the game on a couple of occasions, Gott appeared to be "drawing up a play" & I noticed on each occasion that Leslie seemed to be disinterested, looking around the BC arena, etc. That would annoy me as a coach. Close game, still have a chance to win & ALL players need to be listening to their coach. Looks bad! IMO

    Duke needs to improve in rebounding and FT's. When they get a few more percentages in these two areas they can roll. UNC is maybe between 4-6 best team in the ACC. Look out for MD. UVA is coming on too. I would select MD right beside NC State right now. State is over-rated. MD wins one more game and they will be ranked.

    I didn't realize this. I would have thought that it would based upon the entire body of work. POY is Peyton Manning. ROY is perhaps RG3. Wilson close. I think that it should be decided after all games are played.

    Get what you're saying, Hokie, but the ballots were cast prior to the playoffs. Based on that, I'm sticking with RG3 as the fav. If they waited until after the playoffs, RW would be a slam dunk at this point. Whether it's Luck, RG3 or RW, the player selected will be very deserving.

    Since Wilson and his team are now moving forward vs Luck and RG3, I think it gives him a slight edge. I do believe that RG3 is a tad better than Wilson in some respects, but Wilson showed something to this team in leadership, and he made some huge plays to overcome the odds. Plus being a 3rd rounder, it only enhances what the pundants missed about his desire, leadership ability, and simply thinking himself to make solid plays. I'm not a Pete Carroll fan either.

    I doubt RW will get a lot of support for MVP/POY. Not with the seasons that Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning have had. But he should certainly be in contention for ROY in a season with more outstanding rookie performances than any in memory. It's a shame for the great players who won't win it this year.

    I think RGIII is hurt by the contributions other rookies on his team have made to the Skins' successes. I think he came into the season as the frontrunner, and that hurts him also, as some voters will be looking at him as having nowhere to go but down. Luck has given his team the biggest turnaround (which is how the Colts got him in the first place). He has also had some great fourth quarter comebacks and gaudy stats.

    But all that being said, my sense is that RW has been getting the most love from the on air pundits over the past few weeks, and that momentum just might get him over the top. I expect this to be one of the closest ROY votes in years.

    Both POY and ROY.

    Sure hope so. The kid is a born winner. He won't get the POY, and I suspect he won't get the ROY... View More

    Your exactly right. He is "class". But he won't get either.

    Depends on playoff heroics. Don't count him out yet Hot Dog.
