I've compiled a collection of unedited Twitter reaction to Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing winning The Associated Press' defensive rookie of the year award after a revote. Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd finished second again.
- Ka_Mitchell55 RT @jeffreybigmoney @Ka_Mitchell55: I'm convinced Jairus would've had better numbers and played more games if he took what Cushing took!
- brianmoorman Can't believe Byrd did not win ROY award after re-vote! That's no message to send to kids!!! Ridiculous!
- SI_RossTucker I used to pretty much put zero stock into postseason awards. Now even less, amazingly. I guess that would be negative stock?
- SI_RossTucker What a message for HS football players and athletes in general ... "Cheaters don't just win, they win twice!" Hooray.
- marcelluswiley Im disappointed in the Cushing re-vote. Why should I care if cats cheat, any of them, if most people don't.
The NFL needs some fixin'!!!!
- AaronMaybin58 If the Byrdman wasn't rookie of the year last year after the recent news, whoevers voting needs to be the one gettin tested
- thurmanthomas The voters, Owners,and the NFLPA are making a big mistake by letting Cushing keep this award. How many kids have his jersey,sld burn it?
