No ordinary Joe

LSU fans should take a little pride in running back Joseph Addai's success with the Indianapolis Colts.

You'll find Addai in The Sporting News and Sports Illustrated this week. The Sporting News' Dan Pompei predicts Addai will win the NFL's Rookie of the Year award. If Pompei is right, then it will be quite an accomplishment for Addai. This is shaping up to be a strong rookie class.

In Sports Illustrated, you'll find Addai along with Saints running back Reggie Bush on what is, in essence, a first half All-Rookie team.

I think LSU fans always appreciated Addai. But nagging injuries kept him from being the back everyone thought he could be. In the Peach Bowl, a healthy Addai showed Miami and the world what he could do.

Kudos to the Colts for taking him in the first round.
