MCM Postseason Awards: Offensive Rookie of the Year

New, comments

First off, I want to apologize for the ad that is running on the site today. I have no control over that. If you do not have ad block installed for whatever browser you use, today would be the perfect day to get that.

Today we vote for Offensive Rookie of the Year. The winner of this award is pretty cut and dried, but I will present you with a couple of different options anyway.

Cam Newton far surpassed what most people thought he was going to be able to do in his rookie year. He threw for 4,051 yards with 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He also rushed for 706 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Andy Dalton, who a lot of us here liked this time last year, had a pretty good season of his own. He passed for 3,398 yards with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

His teammate, A.J. Green, was also outstanding in his rookie season. He ended the season with 1,057 receiving yards.

Julio Jones of the Falcons had 959 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns in just 13 games.
