Rookie Of The Year Re-Vote: Packers Fans Say It Should Be Clay Matthews

SB Nation's Acme Packing Company has taken notice of the re-vote going on with the AP's rookie of the year award. If it were up to them, Clay Matthews would be getting the award.

Despite my bias for Matthews, I still wouldn't put a safety ahead of pass rusher in general. All 11 defensive players have to play their role, but it's rare that a safety is considered the best player on defense and usually the best defender is also the best pass rusher. It's a more important position. Brian at Buffalo Rumblings says Byrd should win because some of his INTs were "momentum shifters" during big victories. Ironically Matthews biggest plays were in losses such as the fumble recovery at Minnesota and his big game in Pittsburgh. But in every game I noticed his presence and he stood out.

Matthews ended up with three of the 50 votes in the original voting.
