Russell Wilson for Offensive Rookie of the Year! (Beat Rodgers, Brady, and Romo) they might go 12-4 looking at there schedule.

Kuechly will get more love if we continue to win. And if we do the "Rivera quietly took over the defense, started Luke in the middle and turned the team around" is a very good story that will bring the voters attention (regardless if it is true and this was the reason or not).

Kind of like the Lin hype last basketball season. The fact that an easy part of the knicks schedule probably was a larger contributer than Lins play was largely ignored. Why ruin a good story?

I have nothing but praise for Davis, and as a fellow in the "torn ACL playing football" deparment (the only time I can compare myself with the pros :D) I think it is close to a miracle that he can even play. But as far as inpact of actually play I do not think he is worthy of comeback POY consideration.

I mean...Lin DID out duel Kobe, which was impressive.

IF the season ended today I would hope Kuechly was DROY

TD should win comeback player, but he won't. He's been out 2 1/2 seasons, Manning only 1. Three rehabs are harder than one, even if Manning was out AP would win with just 1 ACL tear. Maybe its a "no brainer" TD doesn't win, but he deserves it over the other guys.

Manning's comeback is as significant as Davis', IMO and he's a more popular player in a marquee position.

TD deserves it, but so does Manning.

I'm sorry, I just don't think coming back from nerve damage in the shoulder is nearly as significant as 3 torn ACLs in a row. I'm not arguing that I think TD *will* win, obviously the "more popular player in a marquee position" is the deciding factor, but that doesn't make it right. That shouldn't be a factor.

If a long snapper came back from being paralyzed below the waist, had a miraculous full recovery, and Tom Brady came back from missing a year due to a yeast infection, I'm sure Brady would win it. Doesn't mean he should.

Wow I can't believe that many people are chosing Chandler over Kuechly. Guess a lot of them loves "UFC" Jon Bones Jones.

Nor should he. I love TD, but Manning will probably win it in a clean sweep.

Sorry I have to disagree. Yes Manning is having one hell of a season after his neck injury. But to come back after three ACL tears on the same knee, thats just unheard of and has never happened. Let alone after 2 ACL tears.
