He certainly didn't win it with a 51.5% completion percentage, 6.2 yards per attempt, and more INTs than TDs passing. He won the ROTY last year inspite of him having a 66.7 QB rating last year.
I have a different take.. He won OROY, because 'the hype #1'
- Reggie Bush failed - so 'the hype #2'
, was next in line.... The real winners should have been either Joseph Adai - or Maurice Jones-Drew. Both had better years than 'his highness'....
