So, we have a new series on Stampede Blue. This week, the hot topic is it's "who has the best nickname in the NFL?" You can go register your vote on their Facebook page.

As far as real debate topics go, if you follow me or others like me on Twitter, you'll see that there is a pretty strong movement to hype Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III as rookie of the year. Obviously, I'm biased.I think it's Luck, by a mile.

Still, despite my bias, everyone I talk to in the league tells me Andrew Luck is better and has accomplished more than Griffin. He's also doing so with less around him. Hell, NFL.com's Adam Schein thinks Luck is the league MVP.

Also, unlike Griffin, Luck has managed his success in a pro-style offense that is completely different from the one he ran at Stanford.

Understand, I like Griffin and I think he's a very impressive rookie. However, he plays in the Washington DC market, and DC fans are so irritating they make my brain hurt. However, in the spirit of debate, let's discuss why Luck is better, and more deserved of the RotY award over Griffin.
