Campaign 2011 – we need everyone on this


So my question is simple, how can we make Demarco Murray NFL rookie of the year?

As we all know the guy is a beast but does the rest of the country know?

The problem is that on national TV yesterday he only got 87 rushing yards but it was against the number 7 rushing defense. Next week he gets to go against the number 24 rushing D but outside of Texas and Arizona who will be watching?

Newton, Dalton and others get all the press but come week 17 will either be on a playoff team or more importantly will they be one of the main reasons for making the playoffs as Murray is.

Below are the 50 people that vote for the NFL/Associated press awards, how do we convince these people that Murray is the best rookie in the league?
