Default Cushing Wins Defensive Rookie Of The Year!

Mods, merge into other Cushing DROY thread if necessary.

Link to story.

Congrats, Brian Cushing!

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Brian Cushing has become the second Houston Texans linebacker in four seasons to win The Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

The tackling machine from USC, drafted 15th overall last April, is a runaway winner in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the league. Cushing received 39 votes, easily beating Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, who had six.

I thought it was DROY and OROY only. Is there an overall ROY? If their is, Harvin will get it cause Favererer is his QB, but oh well. Kind of shocked to see him win so big, though he is well deserving.

BTW, worst call I've ever made on a rookie. I thought he was gonna be a dog.

Default Re: Cushing Wins Defensive Rookie Of The Year!

I just wanted to add something. Please understand that I'm not saying this is why Cush got the award. Certainly his play has been proven on the field.

Darius Byrd had a great season too and was probably the most deserving aside from Cushing. Same goes for Clay Matthews.

I'd like to think tho that perhaps drafting these players from marketable schools like USC is one heck of a way to get the league and ESPN on your side. Granted the kid has to produce but you have to think that it helps.

Either way Cushing did an awesome job and I'm going to buy his jersey today.

Agree with you. Helps when people know who plays for you.

I have noticed this too, that's the way ESPiN rolls. They are a hype machine that loves to be proven right. This was particularly the case during the bush/vy/MARIO draft. They eventually had to shut up and quit dogging the Texans and endorse the Mario pick. But when bush/vy show flashes they slober all over them.

Whoever drafts Tebow will garner instant attention and praise to the point of nausea.

Be prepared with Tebow, because it looks like he's going to Jacksonville.

Cushing was a steal. Best LB in the draft easily to this point, top 5 impact and talent at #15. Great job Cushing!

Can't wait for two former UUT qb's to be in the AFC South. Should be fun. Though, at least Schaub is the 2nd best QB in the AFC South by far. And that's not an insult.
