The Colts leaned a lot more on Luck and asked him to do a lot more than RGIII and Wilson, who both had better teams around them in almost every single category.
That's a fair argument. It just depends on how you view the criteria for ROY.

I don't think it should be analogous with rookie MVP. I view it simply as the guy who was the most impressive. That's just my opinion, though. The body of work by Griffin and Wilson against decidedly tougher schedules than the Colts played makes them the front-runners IMO.
