He is in second place now.
Wow, this is lame. How can 4 tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble
be in 2nd place to:
I don't get it?? Why is Willis in 1st?
I didn't see the 49ers game, but, from the description, Willis' performance does not sound as impressive as Amobi's.
It's all just a fan vote, really. Domanick Davis won most weeks his rookie year.
Getchur votes in.
Make it happen.
One of Amobi's goals is DROY and we need to help him get more pub.
Why dont we combine both threads and change the thread title.
Willis is on a roll for the voters, he's going to win most weeks he's nominated when there's not another clear winner. his impressive debut on a Monday night will stick
I placed my vote. Amobi is in third place right now behind Deshawn Wynn's 50 yards on 10 carries. I know he scored twice but they didnt need it to win 35-13.
If what they did on the field is what should be voted on, Amobi and Wynn should be one and two. I voted for Amobi of course 1. cause I'm a homer and 2. his sacks killed the drive and forcing a turnover is always desirable. Willis shouldn't even be in the running.
Didn't we have this issue with the Green Bay fans when DD was a rook? Me thinks they (Packers) have a couple of guys who run programs/scripts that repeadatly vote as much as possible.
Did my 10
I was just thinking that it probably wouldn't be too hard to write a script to continuously vote, unless they limit the number of times a particular IP address could be used...Does that seem reasonable? Seems as though something is amiss.
Amobi won rookie of the week @ GBN & that includes offense as well
The value to pass to their code is: "0_0_1190075926510_02". You can see the actual iframe source at http://www.nfl.com/polls/vote?loc=Rookies of Week/Year Page&cide=2007_reg_2
However, I see some cookie checks so I'd be surprised if all these votes people are placing aren't being reduced to 1.
Seems like it's probably a waste of time. Any programmer with half a brain would keep computers from placing multiple votes without starting new sessions and clearing cookies in between.
He' still behind Willis people. Get buzy.
What really burns my cannoli is that DeMeco had 8+ tackles in almost every game, and he was only nominated twice. Both times he lost.
Then when some fancy pants linebacker shows up and plays decent for a team not named the Texans, fans vote like crazy for him.
9ers board is jamming the box.
WR Calvin Johnson, Lions = 8.167307073818915%
DT Amobi Okoye, Texans = 20.412343213094776%
LB Patrick Willis, 49ers = 38.38718960001354%
RB DeShawn Wynn, Packers = 29.06376423989031%
DT Marcus Thomas, Broncos = 3.9693958731824566%
I've voted a few times already on both of the weekly "honors" and I'm kind of at the point where I don't care. The two guys ahead of Amobi (Willis and Wynn) both turned in nice games but they in no way come close to the kind of game that Amobi-Wan had.
One guy ran for 50 whole yards and had one nice 38 yard run (so the rest of the day he was 9 carries for 12 yards? That's special ain't it), while the other guy recorded 8 whole tackles and "really seems to be thriving under coach and Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary".
These awards are meaningless.
