    Quit being a troll. And if you're going to be one, don't sour other threads around the forum. Instead, it would be a much better idea to stay in the original thread.

    Didn't know the award existed, but he deserves it.

    I thought Vernon Gholston would get it for sure. He has such a nice body I don't know how you give it to anyone else.

    JSn, where did you get the links for this and Gost? Not that I'm doubting you, I'd just like to see the list.

    Edit: Reiss, never mind

    Given Harrison's probable retirement, I'm going to have to get a new blue jersey for home games. It's currently a toss up between Mayo, Mankins, and Wilfork. He certainly seems to be trying to convince me...

    I think you have to play to qualify for the award...

    Whoever thought we'd see the day a Bill Belichick drafted LB makes rookie of the month...in October??!! If you understand the premium BB puts on on-field intelligence at this position, what this says about Mayo is incredible.

    Love it, dude's only going to get better as the season goes on, assuming injuries can stay the **** away.

    Gholston was just confused; he thought the award went to the defined rookie of the month.

    Congrats to Mayo, it's a real breath of fresh air watching him and Guyton out there. And by lightening Bruschi's load they've made him more effective, too.

    Who knows? Maybe it's Guyton's turn next month. :)

    Get a Mayo, You will get 10-12 years of wear out of it and then you can wear it to his HOF induction. :)

    Congrats... but what did he do again? JK. He's been coming along well, but I didn't think he was tearing it up or anything.

    If it were based just on the body... I think Gisele would have won a few already! *drum roll*

    I'm a tad surprised in the award, just because it actually shows some maturity and insight on the part of the NFL. Not many people outside of NE are noticing Mayo because he's not flashy and thus doesn't show up on highlight reels. He doesn't make picks or sacks, he's just incredibly solid and reliable.

    That last sentence alone is impressive, IMO. Who would have thought that a rooky linebacker would pick up our system quick enough to start from day one? I sure didn't.

    If I offered you 10-to-1 odds last year that not one but two rookies would each take >20% of the snaps at ILB, would anyone have taken me up on that?
