    How does the league leading rusher who is also a rookie not get OROY? By competing with a guy who was a part of a RBBC but also caught passes from the great Drew Brees I guess.

    If it’s even close Barkley would get it over Lindsay.

    If you say so. Nielsen has KC as the #33 media market and NO as the #50. I'd say KC is the bigger market. What am I missing?

    Sports Watch Media is about the same. They have KC at 32 and NOLA at 50.

    I personally think "market size" is an old paradigm that has shifted a bit. In this world wide web world, it really does not make much of a difference any more. There are many effects from the internet that our old way of thinking has not considered. The world series had two huge markets, and I heard sports analysts saying how much MLB wanted the Dodgers to get to the series over the Brewers.

    The ratings for the world series were very low, for all of that "hoping" that two big MARKETS would be in the world series.

    The markets are not driving the ratings, the (name) players are. Neither the Dodgers nor the Sox have big marketable names on their rosters. Kerhsaw is a name, but not much more. Not many people could name the starting line up for the Sox, or really the Dodgers.

    Look at the NBA. it is really about the players. The NFL is no different. Pat Mahomes is starting to move that needle.

    "Tongue-puncher"!

    Of course any first round pick would get it over an undrafted player. "NObody drafted this guy! How good could he possibly be? WEll, he's playing great, for now, but is that real, or did he just have some kind of freak, career year, and he's really the guy nobody wanted to draft, and will fall back to earth next year like Case Keenum?"

    So, they give it to Barkley, the guy everybody said was supposed to win it. They have to give it to him so that they will be proven geniuses "I said before the draft that Barkley would win it!"

    But, for the same reason, Chubb is equally likely to get consideration. He was the consensus #1 defensive pick of the draft. Everybody raved before the draft about how great he was and how he might be an even better prospect than Myles Garrett who went #1 overall.

    So, suppose he goes out and gets 12 sacks or something (he's on pace right now)? Now he confirms everybody's suspicions that he was the best choice all along. Nobody but Cleveland would have taken Denzel Ward so they don't want him to win. Who do you think is going to get it? They guy they all thought would win it all along of course.

    If he has a good season it becomes self-fulfilling prophecy.
