NFL "Steal of the year".

I would have given the award to Freeman based on his weekly performance. However, Wallace has more yardage for the season than any of the 10 WRs picked before him in the draft.

In a related story, Limas Sweed won the NFL Pledge Award for putting the best mirror shine on the bench using his buttocks.

If Mike Wallace continues this pace I would not be surprised to see him win offensive ROY. And kudos to Mike for winning this award.
