You should've put Nick Mangold on that list - he's the best rookie OLineman (arguably of course). But yeah, it's either Young, Drew, or Colston.
I'm not sure Nick Mangold is the best rookie Olineman. Very good, but coming from a team with no rushing game. McNeill on the other hand has anchored the LT spot for a RB that just brok the all time TD record and leagues the lead in rushing.
I'd give it to Drew. VY is steadily improving and I think he'll be good, but I have to say that he is getting a tad too much credit for the titans turnaround. They have had an amazing season, but sometimes they are winning despite Young's play. He has shown a flair for the dramatic, but what if they were never in the position to lose in the first place? Overall, he really hasn't played all that well. And I don't intend to come across as saying that VY sucks, because I believe the exact opposite. I think he will be a good QB. He has had a good rookie season. But I think guys like Drew and Colston and McNeill have had outstanding seasons. Granted, QB is the toughest position to play, I just don't think VY has played well enough throughout the season to outshine some of his counterparts. JMO. I think he'll probably take home the hardware though.
The only game I recall them winning despite VY's play was against the Eagles and Jags (but the Jags game was hardly a fair to say that since he hardly had the ball and the entire offense was similarly a non factor). Otherwise he has been key on many occasions to important scoring drives, and sometimes game winning drives. And i'm not sure if you meant VY is responsible for the Titans being in a position to lose in the first place, but he certainly has not - that goes to the D on a lot of occasions. As I said, I don't see any realistic choice at QB this season that could have come close to doing what VY has done. Even when he isn't winning games on scrambles or late crucial drives, his leadership and personality has helped turn the entire team around. Numerous Titans players said when they saw VY get up fired up after the late hit against the Giants, it sparked the whole team for that amazing comeback. He's the most important single player on the Titans right now maybe outside of Pacman and Mawae.
Everybody knows its only between Young, Drew, and Colston so dont add all the extras
That's true except you're completely wrong. Do you even follow the media? It's either going to be Young or Bush. Devin Hester has a better chance of winning than MJD or Colston, like it or not.
Bush has a chance? I was under the impression that one good game wasnt enough to win OROY
one good game is not enough to win OROY, but bush has had more than just one good game. he's been very solid over the last 8 or so. plus, he will get some "feel good Saints" votes. nonetheless, because vy touches the ball so much and wins, he's your OROY.
