    Been discussing this for a couple weeks because it's one of the most interesting rookie races ever.

    The leader couple change every week. If Addai has a 3-TD game tonight, how can you not put him in the Hester/Bush/Young/Jones-Drew class? It's the only reason we've pushed our ROY ballot to tomorrow.

    And Hawk and Ryans have been monsters at LB ... both in the Top 5 in tackles in their conference.

    And this is without mentioning Cutler and Leinart, neither of which has a legit shot to win it now.

    Nowhere to be found ... Mario Williams.

    Mario Williams is a pretty good player but was obviously not worth the number one overall. (at least not to this point) He does not have any other good players on his defense so he is getting double teamed most times however.

    Williams may be a nice player, but can anyone make a legit case for the guy to even crack the Top 10, based on what he's done this season?

    Wasn't there a thread a few weeks back about Colston and how nobody else was in his class. This has been an amazing season for rookies.

    Gotta go with Hester, though.

    Hester's my choice also. He broke records this year. He deserves it!

    No Leinart?

    No rookie since Marino in 1983 has scared the hell out of people as much as this kid

    Kid looks good?

    He played the fucking Cardinals.

    He fumbled thrice yesterday, but he's still amazing.

    I know PrimeTime isn't liked around here by many, but he made a good point. He said Hester has football speed. Which means that if the guy behind him is running a 4.2, he'll run a 3.8 flat.

    At this point, Hester's dangerous without even touching the ball. In the Bucs game, that dinky pop-up kickoff gave the Bears starting field position at their 45. They easily went down and scored. Ultimately, that may have been the difference in the game.

    You seem to have forgotten about Randy Moss already.

    I did. My very bad.
