Despite what some of the guys here think, one very elite player pulling the trigger at QB can make a team a dynamic force in the NFL. The Titans were 9-24 the two years and the three games before he started. They were 8-5 and one game from the playoffs since they inserted him as the starter....and pacman Jones was with the team when they were 4-12 the year before.
Please oh please let's not compare VY to Elway....at least not yet. John Elway was a far more polished passer out of college and much more geared to a 'conventional' NFL offense. I DO think an ELITE player can have that much impact. I'm (very) far from convinced that Vince falls into that category.

I also have an issue with giving the *ROY to a guy who wasn't even the best rookie at HIS position. I'm not sure anybody could make that argument against DeMeco.
