    Lendale White but Jones-Drew is a close 2nd

      I have to say, Addai impressed me in not missing a game all year, despite getting nicked up as the season wore on. He played in 24 games, including the pre-season and post-season, which is twice that of the usual 12 in college. And add to that all of the work and stress placed into the pre-draft process by rookies, to get drafted as best you can.

        don't sleep on Leon Washington, he certainly won't have the stats of Maroney or Addai, but i guarantee he will be a major factor in the Jets passing and running game next season.

          Actually, I would have voted for Jones-Drew, but you didn't list Washington despite the fact that he rushed for more rushing yards than Reggie Bush, Jerious Norwood, LenDale White, Wali Lundy, etc.

          Rankings in rushing yards for their rookie years:

          1. Joseph Addai - 1081
          2. Maurice Jones-Drew - 941
          3. Laurence Maroney - 745
          4. Mike Bell - 677
          5. Leon Washington - 650

          6. Jerious Norwood - 633
          7. Reggie Bush - 565
          8. Wali Lundy - 476
          9. LenDale White - 244
          10. Michael Robinson - 116
          11. Jerome Harrison - 60
          12. Brian Calhoun - 16
          13. P.J. Daniels - 0
          13. Cedric Humes - 0
          13. Quentin Ganther - 0




          How you couldn't even include Leon Washington was a severe lack in judgement.

          You can say "Well he's not going to be a number 1 next year," but neither are Bush, Norwood, Lundy, or Bell. And three of those guys got less yardage than Washington. So that's not a legit argument.
          Then vote other is it that hard and by the way no way he has the best year out of those other backs the whole reason TJ wanted traded is because he wanted the ball more.

            He only started like 4 games and got 650 yards as a role player. My main beef with Mangini would be watching Leon tear off a couple nice runs, and then him go with Barlow for 3 straight plays and have us punt. That happened a lot.

              If you are creating a rookie list it's best to include at least the whole top 5. Especially when including guys such as Lundy and White.

              I realize you probably hate the Jets because we upgraded our head Coach and yall traded for a downgrade, but you should at least show some knowledge when you create a post. What's a poll if it doesn't include the top 5?

              I'm sorry that you created a crappy poll when it could have been a good topic. But maybe you could take this a learn your lesson. It's not that hard to look up stats if you are planning to start topics.

                The Jets making a great trade for Thomas Jones just might have something to do with it.

                  What ever you say homer Laurence Maroney is winning the poll and I would bet he would still be winning the poll even with LW on it so it doesn't really matter.

                    Falcons have Dunn.
                    Saints have McAllister.
                    Jaguars have Taylor.


                    That's obviously not the reason. The little Chiefs fan is either a hater, or he doesn't know his football.

                        If the guy is such a great RB why did you guys trade for some one that will for sure start over him to me it seems like your coaching staff is not as high on him as you are.

                          Maroney is playing for a solid team and is now the featured back. Maroney.

                            but the main reason is because when minnesota came to penn state everyone was hyping maroney as a potential heisman candidate and saying he would run all over our defense and they would kill us. he ended up running for like 24 yards on 15 carries or something like that but the whole thing just made me hate him.
                            Wow you took the words right out of my mouth, I was at that game and I think gary russel actually gained more yards.

                              If Lundy is such a great RB, why did the Texans sign an over the hill former Pro Bowler?

                              He made your list. =)

                                Maroney and here are the reasons

                                -im a slight homer..but i got many other reasons

                                -last year..our run blocking was not good..neither was playing calling..we seemed to be moving towards ZBS very slowly with a lot of zone runs

                                -Maroney faced 8 men in box because no threat at WR, now with Stallworth we can stretch field and keep the safeties back

                                -Maroney has tremendous ability..his weakness was he wnated to make big plays out of nothing a lot and not accept a 2-3 yard gain instead.

                                -Hes suprisingly strong for a guy his build and will only get stronger.we saw his stiff arms and he was top 5 in yards after contact behind Gore and Henry i believe..

                                -We have a top 2 QB and our playcalling/blocking will be better with Dillon gone and Maroney taking most of the load

                                stats wise i think Addai could be the best because of who he has but Maroney will be the better looking one :)
                                -fast
                                -quick
                                -strong
                                -wicked stiff arm
                                -he loves scoobe doo snacks
