    -Lol, I love there bluntness. BTW, guys I wouldn't take this too seriously, hopefully I won't be seeing posts complaining about Courtney Brown's "Worst Defensive End" Award (yea, it's a joke, but whatever).

    Golden Turd-TO, LOL!!!

    I was going to mention Brown, but you know its a joke when they have Lavar Arrington listed as one of the best LB's and he hasn't even played this year.

          DJ for KC is looking pretty good

            Nice to see they actually watch the games. I'm curious though, does a 17 yard performance against philly really make LT the best running back? I mean James has been hammering away the yards and he gets no credit.

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high."

              Thurman is going to own the NFL in a few years. He has 50 tackles, a sack and four ints this year for a rookie. Marvin Lewis made Ray Lewis and maximized his talent, and it looks like he is doing the same for Thurman.

                I like Merriman for the Chargers as being up for DROY as well.

                  I think Thurman has been the defensive rookie of the year to this point. The guy is a playmaker and will be one of the dominate linebackers for the next decade if he avoids injury.
