Yeah yeah I know, it's way to early to speculate on that.  This post is more about the lack of impact rookies so far.  Where have they been?  There have been a few rookies with some big games but they seem limited to the defensive side of the ball.  Who is doing anything on offense?  Maybe I was just spoiled by Caddy last season. 

Vince Young is going to start today, but I have a feeling it is way too soon for him. 

So hey, if Grads is even nominally successful he could be in the running!  ;D

Lets see him play a couple of games before we make any judgements.

I agree with MJS, let's let him throw more than a single pass in the NFL before we go overboard...

I think I coverd that with the words "nominally successful"  By no means am I suggesting he's really going to win it this early.  I'm just saying that even if he's only mediocre, he's got a pretty good shot.  They have to give the award to somebody don't they? 

Right now for OROY I guess you'd have to go with Colston from the Saints but that's not saying all that much.

There is plenty of OROY action shaping up.  Colston, Bush, Maroney, Jennings, Jones-Drew, Addai are all making some noise.  Vince Young starts against the Cowboys this week.  We may be seeing Leinart soon.

If Grads plays out the year it may come down to the 6th rounder from Holy Toledo and the seventh rounder that sent Stallworth packing for OROY. :P 

I think Jennings may end up running away with the award though.

Colston is looking like the steal of the draft.

Define noise.  They are all playing well in relation to one another, but have there been spectacular rookies as of yet?  There have been no Caddies, Claytons, Boldins, etc.

I think Dan Marino is the only QB to win ROY, they normally just don't play well enough to win any sort of award.

Ben Rothlisberger won it by coming in when the starter went down early on.

Jennings may be on his way to having a sensational year (Unless Brett is benched).

Reggie Bush has impressed me thus far, I think he will win the OROY.

Deuce McAllister looks vert fit and strong as well.  The McAllister/Bush combo will be hard to stop by mid-season.

Unfortunalelt, I think Grads will be lucky to escape with his health and confidence.
