    From NFL.com's Pete Prisco... http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/8050353/1


    Defensive rookie of the year: Dunta Robinson, CB, Texans. This is the next great corner in this league. He should be on his way to the Pro Bowl as a rookie. That's how well he has played. Runners-up: Madieu Williams, S, Bengals; Jonathan Vilma, LB, Jets; D.J. Williams, L
    B, Denver Broncos; Erik Coleman, S, Jets.

    Love how Dunta is getting some well deserved love from the press.

    But hate seeing how Steve Foley made one of the best off-season aquisitions.*cringes*

    Who decides, who the ROY will be? If it is fans, Duntae doesn't have a chance, but if its sports analysts and coaches etc.... I think his chances are pretty good.

    NFL.com also has a Poll asking which rookie defender has been most impressive this season and Duntae is in third place behind Vilma and Sean Taylor. Houston doesn't get enough press, bottom line. Otherwise i believe he would have made it to the probowl.

    The Pepsi ROY is decided by the fans. That is the one Davis won last year. The AP decides the DROY and OROY (Suggs and Boldin). D-Rob has no chance to win the Pepsi one because Big Ben will take that, but it does look like he will win the AP one...

    Guys most of you know hes a great corner you should be happy he is not well noticed , then he can strike next year , and no one would have seen it coming expect few reports and the texans fan , trust me he is miles about Chump Baily and Chris McCalister , who goto the Pro Bowl , because of name and the team they are on ...

    Jonathan Vilma: Its a given he's leading...New York has a lot of followers.
    Sean Taylor: Really hasn't impressed me too much this season..I think people are only voting on the name.
    Dunta Robinson: Guaranteed to win over the AP vote.
