Watching Flaco I've concluded that...

Ryan has ROY sewed up. He WILL win it. Flacco is not even in the top three or four of most writers' ROY watches.

Here is the one guy at SI.com. Flacco not even in sight.

Offensive Rookie of the Year

1. Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons (1): Ryan has been amazingly consistent as a first-year starter. Although he still suffers from an occasional rookie mistake, Ryan is on the verge of becoming an elite quarterback in his first season.

2. Matt Forte, RB, Bears (2): The Bears' star has found it more difficult to find running room in recent weeks, but continues to make contributions as a multi-purpose threat out of the backfield. Forte's 1,115 rushing yards rank eighth in the league, and his 58 receptions lead all running backs.

3. Steve Slaton, RB, Texans (5): The electrifying runner has been on fire since mid-season with four 100-yard games in the past five weeks. Slaton's five 100-yard rushing games lead all rookies, and his 1,124 rushing yards are the seventh-highest total in the league. After getting off to a slow start, Slaton may prove to be the top runner in a talented rookie class.

4. Chris Johnson, RB, Titans (3): The Titans' speedster has been as good as advertised as a playmaker. Johnson has produced 11 runs over 20 yards, including four longer than 40 yards and found the end zone eight times as a runner on the way to racking up to becoming the league's seventh ranked rusher (1,159).

5. Ryan Clady, OT, Broncos (NR): While it is highly unlikely that offensive lineman would win an award that typically goes to skill position players, Clady's play has been so exceptional this season that he deserves consideration for the honor.
