Simple question. Who deserves NFL Rookie of the Year? There's a lot that look deserving, but only one can get it. OR will this be a year with CO-ROTY players?
Does Vince Young get it with not starting until just over midway through the season and having a passer rating 65.9 but finding ways to win?
Does Devin Hester deserve it for setting the NFL Record for returns for TDs with 5 but only getting 6 tackles all season at his CB position?
Does Maurice Jones-Drew deserve it since he's scored a total of 13 TDs even though he's played behind Fred Taylor all season?
What about Marques Colston who's had the best beginning of the season by any rookie with over 1000 yards receiving and 7 TDs, but has faded as of late due to injuries?
Then there's the most talked about rookie in the draft Reggie Bush who leads all NFL RBs in receptions with 84, and has a total of 1125 yards rushing and receiving with 7 total TDs. Is he worthy of it?
Not sure if I missed anyone else, but it'll be interesting to see what people think.
I say its Vince Young. He's come into the NFL when no one expected him to be great in his 1st year and done nothing but win ballgames on a pretty bad team. His killer instinct is very impressive, and he hasn't made too many mistakes throwing the ball.
Very tough for a rookie QB to step in and win right away, especially on a bad team - but that's exactly what Vince Young did. He gets my vote.
its tough because every single player is on a team who is in the playoff race. They all are big contributers, but the problem is that 2 of the guys(young, jones-drew) have ojnly contributed the 2nd half of the season really.
Hester contributed on 6 plays all year, while the others have contributed on hundreds so that takes him out of the equation
so its left to two guys on the same team. A team that was supposed to be rebuilding, in a city where what has happened with the saints record wasnt even in the realm of possibility when the season began. The team has been carried by 3 players on offense(brees, bush, colston) and its defense,
but the reason why bush gets it over colston is because of how complete he is mixed with colston being injured the last couple of weeks and not contribting while bush has come on strong the last couple of weeks

There's talk about that rookie OT from the Chargers getting it too. There's certainlya lot of deserving rookies. If Tennessee makes the playoffs, you have to give it to Vince Young...but they won't. Reggie Bush means as much to his team as Vince does...both have great game changing ability. I'd vote 1. Bush 2. Young 3. Colston

Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.
