Cushing gets DROY

Brian Cushing, Houston Texans,*NFL defensive rookie of year - NFL - SI.com

Safety from Buffalo was in (distant) second with 6 votes. No word on how many Orakpo may have gotten.

Re: Cushing gets DROY

if i had a vote id give it to cushing too even thoo ive only seen a handful of texans games this year, cushings stats have been solid every game.

orakpo had some really great games (4 sacks v raiders) but some games he didnt really have an impact plus he got targeted and beat a good bit in coverage.

sucks, i really thought orakpo had a chance when he hit 11 sacks with 3 or so games to go.

Cushing deserved it. Orakpo had a great season, but Cushing was amazing.

I can admit this. Cushing was a monster.

Orakpo going to the Pro Bowl is his deserved reward.



Now if we could just get Fletcher there, I'd have no complaints.

Re: Cushing gets DROY

I had a pretty good feeling about Matthews. If I remember right a lot of us thought Cushing would be injury-prone and could be on steroids. He's proven he was worth the pick. He had a great year.

Orakpo only got 1 vote.

I have no problem with Cushing getting this award; he had a great year.

Cushing is deserving, although I'm surprised he got 39 out of 50 votes.

I thought Rak would have gotten a little more love but oh well.

He's in the Pro Bowl and is one heck of a rookie. He should be the cornerstone of our D for years to come.

Does it make up for their failure of a season (by their standards)?

If he wasn't on a 4-win team, he would have.

He deserves the PB though!
