Wow, this is lame. How can 4 tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble

be in 2nd place to:

7 tackles.

I don't get it?? Why is Willis in 1st?

I voted.

I didn't see the 49ers game, but, from the description, Willis' performance does not sound as impressive as Amobi's.

It's all just a fan vote, really. Domanick Davis won most weeks his rookie year.

One of Amobi's goals is DROY and we need to help him get more pub.

Willis is on a roll for the voters, he's going to win most weeks he's nominated when there's not another clear winner. his impressive debut on a Monday night will stick

I placed my vote. Amobi is in third place right now behind Deshawn Wynn's 50 yards on 10 carries. I know he scored twice but they didnt need it to win 35-13.

If what they did on the field is what should be voted on, Amobi and Wynn should be one and two. I voted for Amobi of course 1. cause I'm a homer and 2. his sacks killed the drive and forcing a turnover is always desirable. Willis shouldn't even be in the running.

Didn't we have this issue with the Green Bay fans when DD was a rook? Me thinks they (Packers) have a couple of guys who run programs/scripts that repeadatly vote as much as possible.

I was just thinking that it probably wouldn't be too hard to write a script to continuously vote, unless they limit the number of times a particular IP address could be used...Does that seem reasonable? Seems as though something is amiss.

The value to pass to their code is: "0_0_1190075926510_02". You can see the actual iframe source at http://www.nfl.com/polls/vote?loc=Ro...ide=2007_reg_2

However, I see some cookie checks so I'd be surprised if all these votes people are placing aren't being reduced to 1.

Seems like it's probably a waste of time. Any programmer with half a brain would keep computers from placing multiple votes without starting new sessions and clearing cookies in between.

What really burns my cannoli is that DeMeco had 8+ tackles in almost every game, and he was only nominated twice. Both times he lost.

Ridiculous.

Then when some fancy pants linebacker shows up and plays decent for a team not named the Texans, fans vote like crazy for him.

Default Re: Vote for Amobi for NFL Rookie of the Week!

I've voted a few times already on both of the weekly "honors" and I'm kind of at the point where I don't care. The two guys ahead of Amobi (Willis and Wynn) both turned in nice games but they in no way come close to the kind of game that Amobi-Wan had.

One guy ran for 50 whole yards and had one nice 38 yard run (so the rest of the day he was 9 carries for 12 yards? That's special ain't it), while the other guy recorded 8 whole tackles and "really seems to be thriving under coach and Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary".

These awards are meaningless.
