    Sorry if this has been posted before. Please forgive the repeat if it has.

    Some good things said about DeMeco by Shannon Sharpe on CBS.

    Also listen to who they compare Maurice Jones-Drew, to. Wonder if there is anyway we can get him from the Jags...:secret:

    Seriously, AJ Hawk for DROY? Thats the first I've heard that name thrown around.

    He got the big negative from Shannon and Marino after that.

    If you disdain the Texans and by extension DeMeco, then Mark Anderson and AJ Hawk are the clear #2 and #3 in the DROY race. They're just pretty far back. As Anderson is a situational player, its no surprise to hear people on the Hawk bandwagon. All it takes is to pretend Ryans doesn't exist - at that point it becomes a "fair" argument.

    Come on Dan. You just showed us you are still on the hype Reggie Bush bandwagon. No way he should be offensive roy. Shannon Sharpe gave the 2 picks I would say are most deserving. Maurice Jones Drew and DeMeco Ryans.

    He called Jones-Drew "baby Earl". :)

    Off topic....why is Jones-Drew a hyphen? Don't think I've seen too many men with hyphenated names. Pick one or the other...Jones or Drew!

    Yeah because I thought he was just Maurice Drew coming out of college.

    I was big on Jones-Drew and stole him in all my Keeper and dynasty leagues before most of the fans were hip to him. click me to explain the hyphen.

    This is such a great rookie class...I hope the Kubiak regime can draft as well in a lesser draft class.

    If you click the link above you can see it is his legal name...he just never used it fully before on his jersey.

    He does his name like that for his grandfather. I think MJD's grandfather passed away at or during one of MJD's college games, so he added his grandfathers name to his. Thats why he wears it like that.

    I love that..."Baby Earl." When was Jones-Drew drafted?

    That's pretty cool for him to honor a family member like that then.

    The 'knock' on Hawk was the same as it was for Bush--both started late but have come on strong...

    Ryans has been there all year...no days off...no half efforts...award should not go to a part-time player, when you'vr got a player that stepped up every game... but guess who will win
