It will be interesting, because I see it as stats vs impact. Not saying Jones-Drew and Colston haven't made huge impacts, but VY's impact on the Titans as a whole is uncanny for a rookie. The fact he hasn't had stellar stats (even though the last 6 games have been good - 87 QB rating average) almost works in his favour in a way - he is that vital for the Titans and yet is still clearly learning weekly on the fly. There is no way any realistic option at QB for the Titans this season would have been this clutch when needed.
If there was a MVP award for a rookie he'd deserve that for sure, but the actual OROY award being his will depend on how they view his impact vs other's stats. I must say, they can't go wrong either way, great year for rookies. Although I think Bush getting it would be a little rotten.
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.
