Voted, tough to bypass Marques though - he's having a good season so far.

But, the homer in me gave Mario a vote.... but he's in 4th right now.

Well, Im proud of the guy for getting his 1.5 sacks. It's a start but still needs to improve more. :francis:

I voted for him as well, but there is no way he beats out Maroney....that guy is awesome. :shades:

Does anyone know how old Mario is? I read somewhere he was 19. Man, he is a baby!!!! A BIG baby! LOL That is young.

IIRC, Mario is 23. I think I read somewhere he is the youngest starter in the league.

He came out of school as a true junior and not a redshirt junior.

I voted for Mario, but I think Maroney will win simply because he has done well every week so far. Maroney was beat out the first week by Bush (and DeMeco should have won) even though I thought he had better numbers. Keep it going Mario and we will see you on here again soon. (hopefully after the Dallas WIN when he get 2 more sacks)

As I was watching the Packers vs. Eagles game last night I saw A.J. Hawk sack McNabb and I saw him recover a fumble. The reaction was as it would have been if it were any other player in the league. Mario Williams notches a sack and a half with TWO other tackles against one of the worst O-lines in the league and all of a sudden he goes from bust to Lord Mario "I Told you so" Williams. He's still such a big work in progress and I'd love to see the day when plays like the ONE he made sunday are expected. In my opinion he really shouldn't be on that list with those other guys.

Mario was born on 1/31/85, which makes him 21.

I don't mean to be insulting to him, but does Mario even deserve to be in that list? All the other candidates look like they achieved much more this week. I'm glad he's getting better and all, but I'm surprised he's even in it right now.

I did vote for Williams though. :)

Maroney. I voted for maroney.

Honestly i almost did...but I voted for Mario just because he's a Texan...But in no way shape or form does he deserve it more than the others on the list....

I voted for Moroney.. Even though Mario had a better game than usual so far, and just because he is on the Texans does not make me vote for him for ROW. Now if MW can do that weekly, then in time he might just get it.

How politically correct you are....:bowser:

Maroney will win it. He looks so amazing. I didn't understand why Belichick took him instead of DeAngelo Williams, but now I know. IMHO the Patriots have made the best 1st round picks in the past two years.

Mario is the Defensive Rookie of the Week, though! :mario:

Thanks. Well that's a little better. Think how much you grow up mentally between the ages of 18 and 22. Just a thought. Just never stopped to realize how young so many of the players really are. LOL That's why Kubes is calling them "kids".

Considering the circumstances behind the sacks I kind of wish they had shown his pass deflection on the stats, that took as much concentration and awareness as either of the sacks. And while I wanted to vote for Mario, Maroney and Colston had a couple of great games...so for now I'm abstaining.

Couldn't do it even though the homer in me begged. Maroney deserved it so that's who i voted for.

Without 10 tackles and 4 sacks..he wont get it...Defense is harder to accomplish rookie of the week with.

"Wide receiver Marques Colston of the New Orleans Saints, running back Laurence Maroney of the New England Patriots, cornerback Richard Marshall of the Carolina Panthers, running back Jerious Norwood of the Atlanta Falcons and defensive end Mario Williams of the Houston Texans are the finalists for Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors for games played on October 1-2, the NFL announced today."

I was just watching ESPN awhile back, and they didn't mention this. Neither did I hear them say anything about 2 running backs being up, but their boy Reggie wasn't one of them. NOLA has a nominee at WR, but that's not Bush
either.
Thanks ESPN for your unbiased, objective journalism !

Oops--accidental merger of the Morency post. On that subject there is a thread over in the NFL forum.

He did good, but Maroney looked like a seasoned veteran perennial pro bowler.

Mario had 1.5 sacks and tipped the game tieing ball. That's deserves a good look.
