Jerod Mayo is the Defensive Rookie of the Year

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo has had a name change; he will now be known as Defensive Rookie of the Year Jerod Mayo.  There’s a nice ring to that.

Mayo snagged 49 of 50 votes.  Who got the other vote?  Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers.


Yeah.  The guy that missed more than half the season actually won rookie of the year.  Why does that guy get to vote?

Anyways, this award is a really big accomplishment for Jerod Mayo.  He really deserved it, as he gave us a glimpse of what the future may be for the Patriots defense.  He brought the perfect attitude, just absorbed things like a sponge.  He is fast, physical, smart, and will star for the Patriots for years to come.

    Jerod Mayo is a stud and will be here for a long time. Hopefully we can get him another young ILB through the draft to wreak havoc on opposing defenses together. Couple that with Adalius and Vrabel and our linebackers could possibly be up there for best in the league.

    Definitely… but here’s a question:

    Is Gary Guyton going to be a starter… or is he just a rotation guy?

    I think Guyton is definitely a good rotation guy but I’m not sure he’s someone I would want to rely on on a down to down basis.
