Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

Newton is the second straight No. 1 overall draft pick to take the honor in voting by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. Rams QB Sam Bradford won it last year.

The first Panther to take the award, Newton received 47 votes to three for Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton.

Newton set an NFL record for touchdowns rushing in a season by a quarterback with 14 and became the first player in league history to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 500. He helped Carolina improve from 2-14 to 6-10, throwing for 21 touchdowns.

No quarterback had won the award until Ben Roethlisberger in 2004. Since, Vince Young, Matt Ryan, Bradford and Newton have been chosen.

Not shocking.

What's shocking is that no QB won the award until Big Ben in 2004.
And that three people actually voted for Andy Dalton.

So obviously the Ohio media member voted for Dalton which is understandable. But who are the other two douches who didn't vote for Cam?

Green should've been considered RoTY over Dalton for that team.


Green makes Dalton look better than he is.


Don't get me wrong, I think Dalton can be an okay QB, but Green really helped Dalton this year.

Newton absolutely deserved this but I can't be the only one feeling bad for Dalton. As good as his rookie season was, it'll never get its due to what Newton accomplished.
