    Some Early Honors But Not For Peterson

    http://vikingsnow.blogspot.com/2007/12/some-early-honors_31.html
    Peter King of Sports Illustrated named DT Pat Williams and LB E.J. Henderson to his All-Pro teams.
    But King did not give one of his two spots at running back to rookie Adrian Peterson (they went to LaDainian Tomlinson and Brian Westbrook). More surprisingly, though, King named Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas offensive rookie of the year.

    This is how he justified that decision: "No disrespect to Adrian Peterson, but for 16 games, Thomas was more impactful on the Browns than Peterson was on Minnesota."

    I think it's a toss up for rookie of the year between 3 people

    Adrian Peterson- Second in the league in rushing yards and 10 TD's
    Patrick Willis- 174 tackles and 3 sacks.. Lead the league
    Joe Thomas- Was a GREAT blocker for a much improved Browns team.. They needed line help

    I would not be all that surprised if AP didn't get it.. He did only have about 100 yards in the last 4 games of the year

    There is an individual award for defensive ROY and that is basically a lock...Patrick Willis.

    How would an offensive lineman win the ROY over one of the most exciting players in the game?

    Oh yah there is Offensive and Defensive I forgot haha

    Mmmm.. I would go with A.D for sure

    But there could be argument for Joe.. He did play all games.. He did improve that team a whole lot

    But it should really be A.D

    I agree, no offense to Joe but did he break the single game rushing record this year?

    No but he did not allow a sack since week 1

    No but he did not allow a sack since week 1

    And he did improve that line HARDCORE

    And did play all 16 games

    I do believe A.D will win it.. But Joe needs to strongly be considered

    Jewed?

    I think Thomas deserves it more than Peterson.
    He was consistent throughout the whole season and Left Tackle is not an easy position for a rookie...
    But Peterson will win it because RB is a glam position and the NFL will make more money by promoting him.

    It's a very high class refined term to say getting cheated.
    You see apparently instead of just saying I hope he doesn't get cheated he had to use a term about the history of Jewish people as shrewd business people who would "cheat" you out of your money.
    Very classy.
