    Devin Hester. Until a few weeks ago, I would have said Marques Colston. We'll see how the season turns out but Vince Young doesn't seem like a bad pick either.

    Reggie Bush is good but I don't really like him. I'd say Devin Hester.

    No rookie; he's been sitting on the bench for 3 years.

    Young's numbers are too pedestrian to deserve a Rookie of the Year; barely over 50% completion percentage, more interceptions than touchdowns and a 65.7 passer rating.

    Hester's a great return man, but that usually doesn't make you Rookie of the Year. Bush is only averaging 3.2 a carry so I doubt him. Colston's going to wind up with probably over 70 catches, 1000 receiving yards and close to 10 TDs. Those are the types of numbers that grab the voters' eyes.

    Vince Young has definitely turned the Titans around, and they have lost some close games. In the next few years they could be good if he keeps it up.

    Not if you include rushing TDs.

    10 Passing TDs, 5 Rushing TDs, 11 Interceptions

    Plus, Colston is a wide receiver. Young is a franchise quarterback who has led the team on game-winning drives the last three games and is undubtely going to be a very special player for years to come. Give me the QB anyday! No WR ever gets to be MVP of the league.

    It's Rookie of the Year, not MVP. Since 1967, only 2 QB's have won the AP Rookie of the Year - Offense, while 6 Wide Receivers have. Of course, 30 of the 39 have been running backs but I don't think 3.2 per carry is gonna do it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_Rookie_of_the_Year_Award

    I vote Vince Young. How does he thrive behind such a poor WR corps, average line, and should-be-backup HB? He's going to bring the Titans to average (8-8, 9-7, 10-6 with excellency) next year

    QBs don't often win the ROY because it's so much more difficult for a rookie QB to come onto a team and make an immediate impact. All the more reason Vince should be given extra consideration over the rookies in the other skill positions.

    The last time Travis Henry had over a 100 carries (2003), he rushed for 1356 yards; the year before he had 1400+. He's actually putting up exceptional numbers this year; 917 yards and 4.4 per carry.Back up HB??

    I'm sorry, but to me a 65.7 passer rating doesn't make you Rookie of the Year. It's an individual acheivement award and the stats matter.
