ROY re-hashed!

OK, I still firmly beleive the NFL got the rookie of the year wrong in 06. Maurice Jones-Drew should have won!
While Jones-Drew was only 12th in the AFC in Rushing (24th in the NFL) he ranked #1 in all the NFL (with qualified attempts) with a 5.7 ypc.
He also ranked tied for 3rd in total td's with 16. Only Tomlinson (all world 31 total td's) and Johnson (19 total td's) had more. And those two are amazing...1 was the MVP.

On the other foot, Young, was a horrible QB rating wise. Only Gradkowski (TB) and Walter (OAK) had worse rating for all those that reached qualifying attempts.
For all QB's with 10 or more attempts, Young ranked 50th out of 61 QB's in terms of rating.
Young was 1 of only 9 QB's to throw more Int's than TD's (qualified qb's).
In terms of comp %, Young THE WORST in all the NFL for those who qualified.
Only Tuiasosopo (46.2% on 13 attempts), Collins (46.7% on 90 attempts) and Rogers (40% on 15 attempts) we worse than Young for any qb that threw more than 10 attemtps. (that's 61 qb's...so Young was 58th out of 61...that's pathetic.)

Jones drew had a combined 1377 yards (941 rushing and 436 receiving). He also ranked 3rd in the all the NFL in Kickoff returns with a 27.7 average.

How did everyone overlook the obvious horrendous stats that Young put up and missed a true gem in Jones-Drew?

Re: ROY re-hashed!

i don't think he was over looked. but the big Vince Young hype machine, coupled with the titans getting on a roll, sealed the deal

Re: ROY re-hashed!

Young obviously did not get it for his stats. He got it for his game changing abilities and the way he sparked his team and helped them to a much better finish than anyone expected.

Re: ROY re-hashed!

I loved watching Jones-Drew last year. Someone here, shoot maybe it was Daseal, predicted he'd have a big rookie season. I took note and damn if he wasn't right.

But anyhow, is the intent of this thread for you to remind everyone you think Vince Young is overrated?

Re: ROY re-hashed!

For the record I had no problem with VY getting it. He's an exciting young player. I don't get all the hate.

While of course I feel Young is overrated, and this thread does seem to have that "theme", my intent is to point out how great Jones-Drew is. I don't know if you would recall, but before he was drafted I said this kid reminds me of Barry Sanders, and I stick to that. I think Jones Drew got skrewed.

Re: ROY re-hashed!

Jones is fun to watch, so is Vince. Vince has a very bright future and really improved as the season progressed. I'm fine with the call.

I just didn't think VY was that fun to watch...he was only fun to watch when he ran, but when he "tried" to be a qb and throw, I thought he sucked.
Jones-Drew on the other hand was fun to watch, even a play that produced only a yard or so was interesting to watch with him.

The one time he wasn't fun to watch was when he came to DC, and took there first win from us at our house!

Other than that I think your wrong. Movin On!

In his last 4 games, he threw only 2 td's and had 3 int's, and averaged only 178 yards passing. He was 3-1 in that span, but two of the wins were vs poor teams in the Texans and the Bills. I don't see that as improving.

Now, on the flip side...In jones-drew's last 4 games he rushed for 441 yards and a whopping 6.21 ypc, he also had 6 td's over that span. He had 119 yards receiving...so that is 560 total yards in 4 games, which averages to 140 yards per game.
So by using the "he really improved as the season progressed" logic, Jones-Drew gets the nod again.

yeah, that was me if we had needed a running back then, we would have been able to get him too. he showed a lot of heart through the combine and his highlight reel.
