Reaction to Cushing verdict

I've compiled a collection of unedited Twitter reaction to Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing winning The Associated Press' defensive rookie of the year award after a revote. Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd finished second again.

  1. Kawika Mitchell Ka_Mitchell55 RT @jeffreybigmoney @Ka_Mitchell55: I'm convinced Jairus would've had better numbers and played more games if he took what Cushing took!
  2. Brian Moorman brianmoorman Can't believe Byrd did not win ROY award after re-vote! That's no message to send to kids!!! Ridiculous!
  3. Ross Tucker SI_RossTucker I used to pretty much put zero stock into postseason awards. Now even less, amazingly. I guess that would be negative stock?
  4. Ross Tucker SI_RossTucker What a message for HS football players and athletes in general ... "Cheaters don't just win, they win twice!" Hooray.
  5. Marcellus Wiley marcelluswiley Im disappointed in the Cushing re-vote. Why should I care if cats cheat, any of them, if most people don't.
    The NFL needs some fixin'!!!!
  6. Aaron Maybin AaronMaybin58 If the Byrdman wasn't rookie of the year last year after the recent news, whoevers voting needs to be the one gettin tested
  7. Thurman Thomas thurmanthomas The voters, Owners,and the NFLPA are making a big mistake by letting Cushing keep this award. How many kids have his jersey,sld burn it?
