I love seeing this for Taylor. You simply can’t name a rookie who finished the season stronger than he did. He went out and dominated in December.

To close out the season, he just torched the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he’s now offensive rookie of the month.

Taylor had a bit of a rough patch several weeks back when he wasn’t getting many touches or yards. The critics sure loved pointing it out!

I told anyone who would listen to stick with him, and that he’d be fine. Now, he’s the offensive rookie of the month.

Taylor is a hell of a player, and I’m glad to see him getting the recognition he deserves after a great month of football.
