    Demeco Ryans by far..If we could have had anyone besides Maroney it would be demeco without a doubt..As a matter of fact I am not sure if we would be even better if we knew what was coming and picked him instead...Although Due respect to Maroney

    Addai has been Maroney's equal at least. The top rookie is Colston (?) the wr on NO.

    I think Mangold is the least talked about but you can expect to see him in the Pro Bowl within 2 years if not sooner...One of many reasons for the Jets turnaround.

    Give it a couple more weeks. Rooks that perform in December are truly rare.

    I disaagree with the statement that Addai is equal to Maroney. Any team that plays the Colts does not gear up their defense to stop the run. They are all too worried about Peyton. Put Maroney in that offense and he would have hit 1,000 yards already. Comparison doesn't make sense because it is two different offense styles. Hell, when we play the Colts we don't even gear up to stop the run...we try to force Manning into mistakes. :rocker:

    Colston makes the WR position look ridiculously easy - he just goes over the middle, catches the ball then runs with it.

    He is the rook of the year.

    I would say Marques Colston on offense and DeMeco Ryans on defense. But since the poll has asked me to choose one I will go with Marques Colston

    BUSH?? Please.. 1 good game.. Right now, he isn't what they expected. He'll be goon in time once he stops running into his OL backs.. But right now, his teammate is better.

    The best rookie in the NFL is the player who should have been selected #1 in the draft. VY. He is 5-4 as a starter, losing by 1 point to Indy and 1 point to Baltimore. The second best rookie is Marcus McNeil, and it's not even close. If you watch the Chargers, Tomlinson runs left consistently for huge chunks of yardage, and Rivers is hardly touched. The guy is a monster.

    Rookie rankings

    1. VY: Everything he was in college.
    2. Marcus McNeil: the best LT in the NFL this year
    3. Addai: runs with great toughness and heart.
    4. Colston: plays like T.O.
    4. Ngata: responsible for the revived Baltimore D. The LBers get the credit.
    5. Kiwanuka: Super motor, coverage skills for big man.
    6. Ryans: Can we tell how good any player is on Houston?
    7. Sims: tough durable continues to give effort in bad situation
    8. Maroney: vision is a little disappointing between the tackles
    9. Jones-Drew: fire plug playmaker
    10. Mangold: only lineman all year to best Wilfork
    11. M. Anderson: benefits from spot duty.
    12. Leinart: not embarrassing himself.
    13. Wimbley: struggles in space.
    14. Ferguson: Good but not great, Levi Jones type.
    15. Bush: will make the probowl next season as he adjusts
    16. R. Marshall: stepped in and started at cb, few have done it well before.
    17. Norwood: ridiculous yards per carry average
    18. Hester: Weapon in the return game
    19. Hawk: solid, not spectacular.
    20. Lawson: flashes of greatness, but the coaching staff is screwing him up.

    Marcus McNeill and Vince Young, followed by Colston, Ryans, and Mario Williams (if you've seen the guy play... he hasn't put up huge numbers, but if he was on a better team he'd be Seymour).

    His stats may look pedestrian, but he has completely turned around the fortunes of his franchise, more than any other single player from the draft class. He has charisma, leadership, poise under pressure, and the ability come from behind in stirring fashion. Barring injury he will become a superstar.

    If I have to vote right now I go with Colston. I'll take Koolaid over Bush and Addia anyday.

    Joeseph Addai. RB's are more important than WR's.

    My pick has to be Colston. Whether he was a seventh round pick or a first round pick, he has been playing excellent.

    It's a shame that Vince Young isn't on that list, because I think I would have voted for him. The numbers, including a 64.8 QB rating, might not look like much, but he came into an 0-3 team, which was listing horribly and after a difficult start with two defeats he is now 5-4 as a starter, 5-2 in the last seven weeks, and is a leader on a team that really needed one.

    Hands up who wouldn't prefer to see Kerry Collins in there for the Titans when we go there for New Year's Eve? Anyone? Thought not.

    I haven't really seen Colston play, but by stats alone, he is the offensive rookie of the year. As far as rookies I've seen, and though I think Maroney will be a stud, Addai has impressed me more than anyone. I really like Nick Mangold, he will be the Jets center for years, and he will be a good one. On defense, Ryans has played very well, and even in games where I've seen Green Bay get destroyed, I've been very impressed by AJ Hawk. Maroney & Bush have shown incredible all around skills, I believe Maroney leads all rookies in all purpose yardage.

    According to the papers, radio and fans out here it has to be Jay Cutler. Even if he didn't play this season he is the best rookie in the NFL!

    To say otherwise would be wrong...

    Marques Colston hands down! Amazing reciever and every team in the NFL blew it except for the Saints. Colston proves year in and year out teams can find those "diamond in the roughs" and don't have to rely on the 1st or 2nd round to find a difference maker. As much as I want Maroney to get more carries, he just doesn't seem ready to handle a full load. In a couple years I think Maroney will be in that "elite" group with LT and LJ.

    I agree with the poster who said let's wait a couple of weeks. let's see the impact in December of Maroney and Bush on their respective teams. and, if vince young has any more games like Sunday's then he's got to go on the list.

    Colston has been out of action for two weeks and he's still my choice.

    IMO..Definately Colston,the young rook reciever definately has done a nice job down there.It was apparent during the brief time he's missed this year that Brees really missed him.Granted,Joe Horn is still pretty solid..But for a first year WR to come in and contibute like that.Its a fun thing to see.I only wish we had Chad to do that.Maybe next year....
