    2009 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year

    [size=13pt]Texans linebacker Cushing named AP Defensive Rookie of the Year[/size]


    Cushing was a runaway winner in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the league. Cushing received 39 votes Tuesday, easily beating Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, who had six, and became the second Texans linebacker in four seasons to win the award. DeMeco Ryans took it in 2006.

    Not a surprise. Cushing could very well be the NFL defensive player of the year. I don't think he ever had a bad game.

    Very deserved. Of course, as a Packer fan, I would've loved to see Matthews get some more votes, but there was really no one besides Cushing who could win this one. The man has been amazing this year. An elite NFL player, already.

    I'll still leave the DPotY for Woodson, though. :laugh:

    There were a handful of solid candidates that could have one this.

    Cushing, Matthews, Byrd, Orakpo were all fabulous.

    I have no problem with the winner, and would not have any problem with any of the others winning.
    None

    Just another "Individual" honor that detracts from the ultimate team sport.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
