Good for Maroney.
That is great. i love koolaid
Uh oh, take a look at the last rookie to win that award...
You're referencing Dan Klecko, and let me just say he completely deserved it. Ted Washington missed six games in 2003 and Klecko stepped in as the starting nose tackle. The defense didn't miss a beat. It was stout against the run and remained the top ranked unit in the NFL. Klecko was huge that year.
Anyway, Klecko won the award for playing out of position in an emergency situation to help his team. Maroney has won it based purely on the fact that he has performed well at his own position while maintaining a good attitude and acting as a leader. Drawing parellels between the two seems pretty useless.
Sorta makes you wonder about the comments that were made about him being in BB's doghouse...
seems perhaps not
