RG3, Andrew Luck become part of MVP talk

Every NFL team entered this week having played 12 of 16 regular-season games, so I got out my calculator and determined it was time for our King Sport Three-Quarters Awards. We preface them with a crazy thought: It is time to start considering Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck not just for the rookie of the year award — but for the league MVP, as well. The Colts (likely) or Redskins (possibly) making the playoffs would give each a platform for consideration.
