    Pretty cool, but zero chance of winning unfortunately.

    I'm happy for Tate, but Ray Rice is more deserving, he got my vote(s) Ryan Fitzpatrick got my air votes

    Ray Rice gashed a great defense. It has to be him.

    It's always good to see any one of our players getting some recognition! :thisbig:

    What about the D?
    Anybody gets anything?

    I vote for Tate. A lot of Ray Rice's stats were through the air. All three did about the same amount of damage on the ground.

    Already got him, and played him Sunday. Started to play Addai, BUT, felt I had to have some faith that our new D would shut him down! Glad I made the right decision. Won my game!

    Since when did people vote for the players who "deserve it more" on these things?

    I voted Ben Tate of the Houston Texans.

    Remember when Foster got sat down for the first quarter (was it a half?) of a football game last year? I want Tate to win FedEx Player of the Week. I want Tate to be that constant threat to playing time. I think it'll be good for both of them.

    We've had our differences on what kind of threads to make but I gotta give it to you there on the stats comparisons. I was 50/50 on draft day for both of them and it just looks like we made the right decision altogether.

    Gerhart career isnt much better. They're tied for TDs. Such a bad pick for Minnesota. Hell, Gerhart has 13 first downs to Tates 8. Yeah, we won that deal.
