Last year, the finals of the vote were for Michael Vick and Peyton Hillis. Hillis got the victory in no small part due to people voting against Vick because of his off the field history. Hillis had earlier beaten Aaron Rodgers in the voting, which I saw as Packer fans voting against Rodgers because they were afraid of a curse. Hillis finished the year with only 587 yards rushing (3.6 yards per attempt). He has since signed with Kansas City. I am voting for Brandon Lloyd, who apparently was supposed to be the Rams representative, but signed a contract with New England two days ago. I'd love to see whether he made it as a Ram or as a Patriot.
I'm surprised I haven't seen more talk about San Andreas on here lately. About two weeks ago, GameSpot and IGN released features on the game. It appears they got the info for their features from the same meeting with game execs.
