49ers Patrick Willis wins NFL Rookie of the Week

There over 82,500 votes and the word is in: The 49ers Patrick Willis is the NFL Rookie of the Week after a landslide victory.  I'm not sure how many votes belong to Niners Nation, but thanks to everyone for voting.  

Every week Willis (or any other 49er for that matter) is nominated, I'll consistently get the link up so we can help bring home the Rookie of the Year award at the end of the season.  According to the website:

After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com and via Sprint wireless service throughout the month of January. The winner will be announced at a press conference at Super Bowl XLII in Arizona.

Needless to say, there will be daily reminders and I'll even throw up a link on the left side bar at that point.
