    After he gets his bell rung a few times, we'll see......but he is neat to watch

    Not even that close!

    It's way too early to tell.

    "many occasions" you mean his ONE NFL game?
  • shaggy272 2012/09/15 13:17:29
    No, it's too early
    He's a rookie that had a good game. He had a lot of help such as a 5 yard pass that turned into 88. Thats like saying the jets are the best team in football. Rediculous question.

    After one game people are ready to put him in the Hall of Fame. REALLY??? Give it some time, the league will figure him out.

    Running QBs have problems with longevity from injuries; I want him to succeed, he was great in college ; )

    Give me a break. It's been one game. Mike Shannon is a genius. Let's see how it goes at midseason after people have seen some tape on him.
  • El Prez 2012/09/14 23:12:43

    Everybody is potentially a candidate! He needs to play a lot of games to gey into the lead. Way too early!!!
  • bye 2012/09/14 22:37:42

    Lets talk in say week 12 ok? :)

    who writes these fking questions? hillary?
  • ☆FritzW☆ 2012/09/14 19:40:26
    Yes, he's that good
    I voted yes because I believe he's that good that I can see him taking the Redskins into the playoffs and if he does.. and he stays healthy, he could very well be an MVP candidate. But I'm also realistic in that he's a rookie and who knows what the season will bring. Let's be honest.. it's week one. And being a Giants fan I'm hoping he isn't what I think he can become. :)
  • Robert Strobel 2012/09/14 19:14:57
    Yes, he's that good
    Robert Strobel
    Any body that plays good can be MVP.
  • fitz 2012/09/14 17:06:40
    Yes, he's that good
    He has shown amazing maturity at this stage of his career, He's very intelligent, has a strong arm, and has foot speed when needed. He's a no brainer pick for stardom but, unfortunately, I'm a Dallas fan. I think that Washington got the best pick of the litter.
  • Daniel Robinson 2012/09/14 16:25:53
    Yes, he's that good
    Daniel Robinson
    He gonna make his name he a determined individual

    Mark Sanchez!
  • bye The_Mac... 2012/09/14 22:38:44
    Oh please Mark Sanchez...??? Really. He's cute but good?...
  • s2k 2012/09/14 15:54:19

    Ask me in about 8 weeks
  • Darr247 2012/09/14 15:47:59
    No, it's too early
    Are you kidding?
    They've played 1 game.

    I think Kirk Cousins (#12 in the picture) has done as good a job, for a lot less money, so far.
  • bwood254 Darr247 2012/09/14 15:52:36
    Cousins is not RGIII obviously he couldn't make half the plays griffin does he is smart with the football rarely turns over the football and probably the most athletic QB in the nfl, which makes him more of a threat for defenses. You are right tho in a sense it's too early to judge still a long football season to play!!
  • KeithL 2012/09/14 15:43:17
  • lovemyk... KeithL 2012/09/15 15:59:42
    I agree Keith
  • Tennessee3501 2012/09/14 15:38:13
    Yes, he's that good
    The season still has a long way to go, but there is no reason why a rookie should be disqualified because he is a rookie.
  • bye Tenness... 2012/09/14 22:39:42
    Well said.
  • Magus BN-0 Tenness... 2012/09/15 15:06:36
    Magus BN-0
    Exactly right. If he puts in an MVP performance all season long, holding the fact that he's a rookie against him would be stupid.
  • J.Runae 2012/09/14 15:29:01
    No, it's too early
    Still has the entire season to go.
  • mikeyavelli 2012/09/14 14:59:15
    Yes, he's that good
    and they are making it his game too. the redskins built the offense for him. good show.
  • jacktown kid 2012/09/14 14:56:36

    It is just one game people
  • joseph.davis.9081 2012/09/14 14:56:01
    No, it's too early
    His girst game was impressive, but lets see where this goes
  • Callaway 2012/09/14 14:39:06
    No, it's too early
    Please (1) one game???? Body of seasons work not one game, anyone who watches college football knew he was going to be a very good QB if surrounded by talent. Like great young baseball pitchers let's see him do it the entire season and how he handles the teams after they've seen him the second time around.
  • james.bowman.146 2012/09/14 14:37:59
    No, it's too early
    Everyone at this point is an "MVP candidate"
  • President Camacho 2012/09/14 14:30:21

    President Camacho
    The eagles ravens and Steelers will all destroy the myth
  • NPC Preside... 2012/09/14 23:43:09
    Very likely others will also
  • Preside... NPC 2012/09/15 01:44:41
    President Camacho
    Or he could be for real
  • richard 2012/09/14 14:25:20
    Yes, he's that good
    Yes hes on the way however i see him as the rookie of the year its hard to get mvp as a rookie but in the future he should bring multiple superbowls to Dc.
  • gaylehelen 2012/09/14 14:22:55
    No, it's too early
    After one game? Come on, it's a long season. Let's wait and see.
  • whipnet 2012/09/14 14:19:12
    No, it's too early
    Even though the Super Bowl champion is chosen long before the season starts, they usually don't pick the MVP until the 2nd game. (haha)

  • bye whipnet 2012/09/14 22:40:54
