The Rookie of the Week was announced yesterday, but our boy Johnny Knox did not win. Instead, Jets QB Mark Sanchez won for the second straight week, despite posting paltry numbers (Sanchez completed 14 of 22 passes for 163 yards and one touchdown). Since no rookie last week obviously stood out from the rest, I I think it was a great chance for Knox to earn some recognition that would put him in legitimate contention for the Rookie of the Year award.
Worse yet, the website doesn't mention what percentage of the vote each candidate received, so we have no idea if Knox made it a battle. Here's to hoping he has a monster week against the Seahawks, and can make the list again. Then maybe we can vote him in next time.
Oh, and I hope Sanchez throws 4 picks.
