Texans linebacker Cushing named AP Defensive Rookie of the Year

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/football/nfl/01/05/cushing.ap/index.html
NEW YORK (AP) -- Brian Cushing has become the second Houston Texans linebacker in four seasons to win The Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

The tackling machine from Southern Cal, drafted 15th overall last April, is a runaway winner in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the league. Cushing receives 39 votes, easily beating Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, who has six.






Good for him

I called it, in the other thread.
This is f**king bull s**t.

How the hell did they not give that award to Scott McKillop.

Did they not see that TD he made against the rams.
He's no Patrick Willis

I thought it would for sure go to Jairus Byrd or Brian Orakpo
One thing is for sure all those USC linebackers are the real deal.
That CB for the Lions got the shaft.

that's exactally what i want to knwo. the only thing that I could come up with was that Brian Cushing was stellar all season long whereas Brian Orakpo came on strong in the 2nd half of the season.
cushing is a beast
If I have to hear about him one more time, I think I'm gonna have Cushlash.
