    No offense, but the rookie of the week should be the rookie who played the best and made the most impact for his team.

    That said, Demeco made a lot of tackles, but didn't relaly have any stand out plays. Also, despite tackling well, the Texans lost. I think the rookie of the week should have been the rookie WR for the Saints that caught the game winning TD

    Cortland Finnegan, Tennessee DB
    Recorded five tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in the Titans’ 23-16 loss to the New York Jets. Finnegan’s fourth-quarter sack caused a fumble which was recovered by the Titans and led to their game-tying touchdown to make it 16-16 with just less six minutes left in the game.

    I take it back. Despite losing the game, this guy had a helluva game!

    12 tackles and 1 assist is nothing to sneeze at, and I don't mind supporting my team's player in rookie of the week/rookie of the year voting.

    Well, I hope that means that you support DeMeco Ryans. That was an outstanding effort. 12 tackles and 1 assist is a SUPERIOR JOB. There is no reason why we shouldn't be voting for him for Rookie of the week. R. B--h-t did well, and with all the media hype, we will here about his efforts for weeks(good or bad-with spin). Demeco Tackles amost led the league, and is comparible to some well experienced MLB.

    J. Vilma, who IMO stole the ROY in '04 started his career with 1 tackle, and two games later (when he started) he had 3 tackles and 5 assists.

    I'm sorry, but in the saying, stats don't mean anything. (the other players on the board). A avg. of 52.6 yards on 5 punts is the biggest stat line I've ever seen on a kicker, especially in a 9-6 game. Just on field position alone this punter (player) had the biggest effect on his team winning the game. There for, just because a punter will never win "rookie of the week" again in my lifetime, I will vote for Ryan Plackemeier.

    Any Punter should be lucky to kick a couple of 52 yarders in one season, but a rookie to kick a avg. of 52.6 on 5 kicks in his first game is unheard of.

    That is crazy..dang

    Anyway, lets do some fun math because im bored
    At this pace:
    Reggie-976 rushing, 928 receiving (damn!)
    DeMeco- 208 tackles (combined them with assists)-(damn!)
    Maroney-1440 rushing...

    What does this mean? Absoultely nothing, other then the fact I'd rather post on a message board then do homework.

    Not to mention Cortland Finnegan played at a D-IAA school. Pretty impressive for his first NFL game...

    At least Demeco's the leading defender on here. Hard to compare LB performance to RB performance. Kinda like comparing apples to....nevermind.
