    pft

    He gets in to the Pro Bowl and he's not happy with that. Why don't you concentrate on what lies ahead of you and think about the team first instead of crying about an award. He didn't even have the most rushing yards as a rookie. Shut your piehole.

    yeah he was great, but that doesn't mean someone else wasn't better. pretty simple math. a quarterback performing at the highest level ever for a rookie is going to be beat any typical rookie running back's season any year

    Someone should tell Chris Johnson that he's not even the best rookie RB in the league...

    Of course he's upset - you know being drafted by the Titans in the first round, and going on to win OROY is pretty much an absolute gurantee of future success, and now he's lost all that.

    All he has on Steve Slaton is .1 yds/rush, 1.8 yds/game, and 1 less fumble. He's the 3rd best rookie RB, 2nd at the most.

    Shelbyville Guy #1: Sounds like Springfield's got a discipline problem.
    Shelbyville Guy #2: Maybe that's why we beat them at football nearly half the time.

    Slaton led all AFC backs in total yardage. That includes Johnson.

    Yep, Matt Ryan had a tougher situation(bad team) going in to his rookie year and it's tougher to step in as a QB to start in the NFL.

    I can't be too hard on the little punk, he was my fantasy back in both of my leagues and did pretty good for me.
