Ryan collected 44 votes, far in front of Titans running back Chris Johnson with three. Broncos tackle Ryan Clady had two and Bears running back Matt Forte got one.

I figured Ryan would win due to the falcons success.. but i didnt think it would be by that much... Oh well... You're OROY in my mind Steve Slaton:fans:

I heard this on the radio today and wasn't surprised that Ryan won, but I was a little surprised Slaton and Flacco didn't get any votes at all. Slaton should have gotten enough votes for 2nd since he was the top rookie rusher in the league. JMHO!

there was like 10 rookies who could've gotten a vote, but obviously Matt Ryan has had one of the finest seasons ever for a rookie QB, so it's pretty much a layup.

compare his numbers to Vince Young's ROTY performance. laughable

I saw a few Falcon games this season and he was playing like a veteran....he was amazing this season.

Yup...no arguments about that. Nice to see Stevie didn't get a single vote though.

Will be interesting to see how he does now with the pressure and expectancy on him to produce is there!
