Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure a person could still be a canidate even if they played the previous season. My case and point Jerome Bettis. In 95 under new coaching with the Rams, he had a down season. During the offseason he gets traded to the Steelers and goes on to win the award in 96. I know deep down TD deserves this award. We all know the odds were against him in 2012 coming off of 3 ACL surgeries with two mega superstars coming off major injuries as well. What can we do as CSR to make this happen?
