Chris Johnson calls ROY bogus

22 posts in this topic

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.

Its called being a QB...it tends to bring a lot of accolades as well as a lot of criticism. Ryan earned it

Johnson may or may not have a point here. It honestly doesn't matter to me whether or not he does.

The fact that he's whining about it though? And in the media? That makes me think he's a little punk.

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.

Hey, Chris.... both Steve Slaton and Matt Forte had more rushing yards than you did... and Forte had more receiving yards than Slaton who also had more yards than you did...

Now shut the hell up.

:cool:

Didn't Forte carry an entirely shitty Bears offense on his shoulders and damn near get them to the postseason while breaking several franchise records along the way while putting up nice numbers as well? I would've given it to him if Ryan didn't get it. Ryan did deserve it and that choice was the right choice. Chris Johnson and Lardass White are fags anyways!
