Brian Cushing's Defensive Rookie of the Year award was put on the line as voters tried to determine how valid his credentials were after he tested positive against the NFL's steroid policy. In the first go around, Cushing won the award gaining 39 votes, while Jairus Byrd had six votes and the Packers' Clay Matthews had three. This time, Cushing still wound up the victor, but it was much closer this time around. Cushing finished with 18 votes, while Byrd had 13 and Matthews had ten. Different vote, same results.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote a nice little piece about how suspect this whole process was, especially with how quick the revote was. In the end, he did not vote for Cushing, but I think if I had a vote I would have. I just don't think you can take back awards like that. No, I don't agree with what he did and I don't agree with taking steroids, but once you get an award I think that can't be taken away from you. It's probably an argument for another day, an argument that would be best suited for a Winks Thinks column. You know, if I still did those.
