The Rookie of the Year Award for the 2011-12 NFL season will be announced on February 4 at the new NFL Honors ceremony.
There is no point in even waiting to find out who will win, because it would be incredulous for Cam Newton not to bring home the hardware.
Just look at his numbers for starters.
The No. 1 overall draft pick threw for 4,051 yards (rookie record), ran for 706 yards, tossed 21 touchdowns and punched in 14 more (QB record) on the ground.
He was the first player in the great history of this league to throw for more than 4,000 yards and run for 500. He was also the first to pass for 500 yards and score 10 rushing touchdowns.
