    Wow at the loss of 21 votes. But I'm really glad he kept the award. I guess the media isn't as dumb as people thought. Maybe.

    And this was simply great timing by me to log in. I'm at school right now, and was only going to be on for like 7 minutes.

    Sweeeeeettttttttt.

    Of course, it doesn't make me feel any better about 56 not being on the field for games 1 thru 4, but hey, I'll take it.

    Glad he kept it. This whole thing was still an incredibly stupid exercise overall.

    Adam Schein: "I originally voted for Brian Cushing. I was disgusted to learn he failed a test for PEDs in September, marring his great rookie season. I was even more disgusted to find out he tested positive for a masking agent for steroids. Upon getting an e-mail from the Associated Press learning there was a needed re-vote, I instantly voted for a totally clean ball player, Brian Orakpo. A player who fails a drug test for a performance enhancing drug shouldn't receive an award."




    HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    On top of everything they basically just embarassed Matthews, Orakpo, and Byrd by doing this. I wonder how those players feel now, knowing that they didn't beat Cushing even after he failed a drug test. LOL.

    Freaking stupid-ass AP.

    LOL, I really want to read some transcripts of interviews if they touch on this subject. Especially Donte Whitner's response, since he was the first one who brought this up in the first place.

    I bet Peter King is fuming right now considering he seemed to be heading up this cause.
