I just got the text from 610 that he retained the Rookie of the year award. It's good to see that they have not denied him this award. Like many have said, his instincts on the filed got him the award more than anything else. I for one am glad to hear it. Guess all the Peppers and merriman comments being thrown around got the AP's attention. I have no doubt that he'll be back true to form for game five year year.
