    You can have the fruit rollups avatar forever. I just want the sign in your sig for say, two weeks.

    BTW, it's a strong rookie class. But no way Vince Young doesn't win. No way.

    Wait a sec, I was being sarcastic with the fruit rollup thing. But I'll tell you what I do want. I want your sig to have you holding up the paper saying "Chuck Taylor spits hot fire"

    Kick returner? Meh. Part-time player.

    Good story, but I still can't see him being the first OL to win Offensive ROY honors.

    Half season? Barring injury, he's going to end up making 13 starts.

    Colston has basically missed three games. Bush has disappeared for large periods of time. As others have noted here, Hester is bone-headed as often as he's brilliant.

    Young has completely turned that team around despite a second-tier RB and the fact his best WR plays cornerback (Pac-Man). They should be going neck-and-neck with the Raiders and Lions right now. Instead, they've got a shot to make the playoffs with two weeks left. Despite what some yeehaws say (note: most certainly not referring to Shottie here), he's legit.

    So is a closer.... but an incredible number of people here thing that that position should be eligible for Cy or even MVP.

    This is the first time I have heard an OL's name so out there before the voting.

    Maybe he has a chance.

    In another year, with a weaker crop of rookies, sure. But not with this class. Way too many good options.

    Re: Devin Hester: There's an Offensive ROY and a Defensive ROY. If anything he wins Defensive ROY over DeMeco Ryans. He has next to no chance at Offensive ROY.

    That labeling will let the lemming voters off the hook, I suppose.

    Young just became the first quarterback since the merger to rush for 500-plus yards in his rookie season.
