Only Tim Ryan, who works for Fox Sports and Sirius XM, left Megatron off his ballot. And he explained why, providing some poor logic for the decision, largely based on the fact that the Detroit Lions didn’t win enough games.

“Of course, he had a great year and he is a great receiver. But I look at more than statistics, and I thought a couple of other receivers had a better season — Brandon Marshall and A.J. Green,” Ryan told The Sports Xchange via Pro Football Talk.
