Default Chris Johnson upset at losing ORotY award. Calls it bogus.

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/...-voting-bogus/

What an arrogant, disrespectful prick.

No team in such short time has made me hate them so much than the Tennesee Titties. I'll enjoy their early playoff exit so their hick fans can go back under the woodwork.

The best part is that he was blown out...

Sorry, buddy.

The quarterback gets all the credit and all the blame in defeat. Learn to deal with it.

A time-share running back isn't going to beat out a franchise's new face.

Without him the Titans would have been this good. FatWhale White would have had over 1000 rushing yards, the defense would have still been dominant, and Kerry Collins would have still been the steady hand of the offense.

Not to mention the Titans were a playoff team last year and not a reclamation project.

Without Matt Ryan, the Falcons would have been 6-10 at best with Chris Redman under center.

Im glad this jerkoff is whining about it. Another thing his mind is on other than the playoffs. Between him and White, the team might just self implode.

Let him whine I think it is funny and it wasn't even close so that makes it that much better.

What a tool. Not only was Ryan the obvious choice, but Johnson wasn't even the top rookie running back. That would be Matt Forte.

Titans running back Chris Johnson was the only rookie to make it to the Pro Bowl. But he lost out on the offensive rookie of the year award in a landslide to Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

And Johnson doesn’t like it.

“[T]he whole thing is bogus,” Johnson said, according to Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper, ”because people are voting for it that are not on the same field as the people who are playing.
Ummmm - picklehead - the Pro Bowl is voted on by the people who are not on the same field as the people who are playing. Don't hear you whining about your selection to the Pro Bowl.

Cry me a river.

ME ME ME.

I WAS a fan of this kid until I read this blurp. With having the NFL TIcket, I was able to watch quite a few Titan games. And, as already stated, they would have been probably equally as good without him. However, the argument could be made that if he wasn't in the timeshare he is with "Lovehandles" White, he probably could have taken the prize. My opinion is that Ryan is SO instrumental in turning around that franchise, along with Michael Turner, that it had to go to him. I also agree that Johnson wasn't the best rookie RB this season. My vote would go to Steve Slaton......

Lambert...I agree with you...

Slaton was the best running back this season for the Rookies. The low expectations put upon him and his explosion into the NFL down in Houston has made him my choice for the Offensive Rookie RB of the season.

I spent 4 years cheering against Slaton at WVU being a Pitt fan...seeing him at the next level, I've kind of become a fan. He's good.
