Chris Johnson calls ROY bogus

Titans running back Chris Johnson was the only rookie to make it to the Pro Bowl. But he lost out on the offensive rookie of the year award in a landslide to Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

And Johnson doesn’t like it.

“[T]he whole thing is bogus,” Johnson said, according to Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper, ”because people are voting for it that are not on the same field as the people who are playing.

“I’m disappointed. I did all I could to win it. I feel I did the best. I feel I did all I could do to win it; it just didn’t come my way.”

The Associated Press names the offensive and defensive rookie of the year based on voting by 50 sportswriters. Ryan received 44 votes; Johnson drew only three.

I'm really starting to not like the other "Smash and Dash"

...at all...

two immature pre-modonas

I'll take DWill and Stew any day over those two chumps...

Matt Ryan, hands down, should be ROY (coming from a Panthers fan) what's bogus is the Pro Bowl...not ROY voting...

Lawlmatic.

Chris Johnson and Lendale have been real media whiners this season.

Someone get him a whambulance. What a crybaby. He wasn't even the best rookie RB this year.

Ryan deserved it. Tell Landale White Jr. to get over it

Hey Johnson....go cry on LinWhale's shoulder. These two wimps deserve each other.

What is sweeter than watching them bitch and complain....doing it while the Titans are booted in their first playoff game.

Yeah Forte and Slaton probably deserved it over Johnson even if Ryan didn't get it.

Although it seems a silly thing to complain about, he does have a point. Chris Johnson is among the top 10 in the league at his position. Matt Ryan is not among the top 10 in the league at his position. Should Ryan get it just because he is a Quarterback?

I thought it was a no-brainer. If what he says is true, then Flacco would also have been considered but everyone knows the Ravens defense carried them, as well as the Titans defense. Ryan does more than pretty much any other rookie QB has in a long time. He is a leader of that team and definitely deserves it. People whine too much over petty things, especially those two RB's. I hope they get smacked in the first round.

Ryan is 11th in QB rating

Johnson is 8th in rushing yards.

QB is a far more integral position. RB is one of the least important positions because they often rely heavily on the OL whereas a QB can make an OL look good. (although the hardest to maintain success due to the physicality)

Ryan definitely deserves this award.

It has been said and proven that RB is the easiest position for a rookie to step in and succeed....while QB is the most difficult.

What Ryan did this year has been amazing. He has done much more than just manage the game...he was a difference maker. To watch him run the no huddle offense while shuffling players in and out was amazing.

This kid is the real deal and I was VERY impressed.

i wish Ryan were in a different division, and we didn't have to worry about how good he is going to be.
