my personal opinion:

Vince
McNeil

But it's close the whole way.

maurice jones drew.... he was the best runner, plus he added dimensions in the recieving game and the return game

As good as Maurice Jones-Drew's season was, I still feel that Vince Young is the leading candidate to win the award. Vince Young is a natural winner and he lead the Titans to an 8-8 season. I feel that Vince Young will soon overtake Mike Vicks position as the best dual-threat QB in the NFL. If not next season, then it will certainly be the next.

Now, if rookie offensive lineman actually got credit for there work(a-la Marcus McNeil, Dbrickashaw Ferguson) then they would be a close second.

Offensive Rookie of the Year Rankings(Including O-Lineman)
1. Vince Young QB Tennessee Titans
2. Marcus McNeil OT San Diego Chargers
3. Maurice Jones Drew RB Jacksonville Jaguars
4. Marques Colston WR New Orleans Saints
5. Dbrickashaw Ferguson OT New York Jets
6. Reggie Bush RB New Orleans Saints

My vote goes to Young. He stepped into a bad team and lead them to wins. He doesn't have great stats that people look for but he made a bad team playoff contenders.

After Young I'd go Colston. WR is a hard position for rookies in the NFL and he did a great job. As a 7th rounder he got over 1000 even with missing a few games.

My breakdown goes like this:

1.Vince Young:highest winning percentage for a rookie in several years
2.Maurice Jones-Drew:Its something special when a rookie gets 2,237 total yardage
3.Marcu McNeil:Started all 16 games and paved the road for the best RB in the game

It's obvious. It was a 2 man race for several weeks between Vince Young and Reggie Bush. Even though I think that Mo Jones-Drew deserves it, he doesn't get nearly enough publicity. Vince Young will win OROY.

Don't you mean 2? lol, Big Ben went 14-0.

But still, even though I don't really agree with it, mostly due to subpar passing stats, he'll still win rookie of the year.

Maurice Jones-Drew, hands down. He rushed for nearly 1000 yards BEHIND a 1000 yard rusher AND scored 16 TD's. 16.

Tough call; it depends on the criteria used by the voters.

I'd say MJD and Colston are the most complete players....both of them are already performing like seasoned veterans, and should be marquee players for years to come.

But what Vince Young has done is simply incredible...possibly even unprecedented. He took a hopeless team that started 0-5 and very nearly took them to the playoffs. Moreover, he did this not as a "caretaker" QB, but as the focal point of the team's offense, and showed steady progress over the course of the entire season.

If you judge OROY strictly by statistics, then MJD is probably the choice.

But if you judge it in terms of MVP performance, and the rookie who had the biggest impact....the difference between winning or losing games... then Vince Young wins it hands down.

I would have given it to Colston a few weeks ago, but I think I'd change my vote to MJD. He's just been a monster this year. 2237 total yards and 16 touchdowns is just ridiculous.

him too. So basically he has the best winning percentage by a rookie QB in one year.

MJD, hands down...I know that everyone's beloved Vince Young took the team to 8-8, but he had some very horrible games...plus, he had to run the ball as much as he did because their oline wasn't very good...

Maurice Jones-Drew nearly had 1000 yards rushing behind fred taylor, had almost 500 receiving yards, was 4th on the team in receptions and was in the top 10 in the league in returning kicks...he even scored one...which he ended up tied for third in the league in total touchdowns...had they not used him so sparingly in the first three weeks he'd probably have close to 20 total touchdowns...without MJD the jags don't even come close to 8-8...

1) MJD
2) Vince Young
3) Marcus McNeil
4) Colston
5) Reggie Bush

Vince Young

- 51.5% completions
- 2199 yrds passing
- 12 TD passes; 13 INT's
- QB rating: 66.7
- 83 rushes for 552 yrds and 7 TD's

I don't think you can vote for someone who puts up those passing numbers, over a guy like Colston who set a record and Bush who had over 1200 total yards

According to profootball weekly, Vince Young will be the OROY.

Drew all the way. He's got huge number, he played very well and like Jay said he was behind a 1000 yds's rusher. Great season.

Drew out performed Bush in every way shape and form. Colston wont get it because he missed a few games. VY's passer rating is horrible and although he has been excellent I still think it should go to Jones-Drew

1)MJD
2)VY

It's ashame lineman will never win the award, because Marcus McNeill and Nick Mangold would both top the list. Mangold is one of the strongest lineman I've ever seen, especially with the way he drives tackles off the ball.

Maurice Jones-Drew is a better and more productive player than Reggie Bush. I like Vince Young, but he doesn't deserve it, he has a long way to go when it comes to development.

Mo-Drew and VY are the clear favorites to me, but Young will win it.

I want MJD to win, but VY will.
