Season Award Predictions

Here's what I think the Season Awards will go to, I will leave marks after each one whether I agree or not.        Be sure to put your two sense worth in. Thanks! (N.B. No particular order in the Honorable Mention sections)

MVP: Michael Vick

Why: Because he electrifies the crowd with his running ability and after that comeback against the Giants he got everyone on the fence to sway to his side.

My take: Michael Vick has been nothing short of amazing and after that comeback against the Giants ON THE ROAD, he secured his MVP title. The Eagles offense has been fun to watch, mostly because of him and Desean Jackson. They have weapons everywhere. Maclin, Avant, and Celek are all great targets, and McCoy has been a dependable replacement for Westbrook. Vick has been fun to watch, but I don't think he should win it.

Honorable Mention: Yeah, Tom Brady. This has been a 2 man race for a while. Brady has some serious accomplishments that if Peyton did, he would definitely get the MVP (They'd give it to him if he hadn't throw almost as many picks as Eli...). He hasn't thrown an interception since Week 6 against the Ravens. He broke Bernie Kosar's record of pass attempts without an interception. In that span, Brady has thrown as many TD's as Eli Manning has INT's over the whole season. He also has nearly a passer rating of 110? He also shredded 8 of the league's top 10 defenses. 

 

Other regular season awards predictions after the jump!!!!

******************************************************************************************************************************

Coach of the Year: Raheem Morris

Why: The Buccaneers were 3-13 last year and now they're looking like they're making the playoffs.

My take: Raheem has done some special things with this terrible team, but I think half the team has seen the inside of a police station in dishonorable dispositions. Still, they are on the verge of the playoffs. Not my choice.

Honorable Mention: (1) Bill Belichick: He's taken a set of rookies and united them around Brady in what was supposed to be a "rebuilding year" by many analysts and turned them into the Super Bowl favorite.                                 (2) Todd Haley: Brought in new coaches to help out and nabbed an effective RB(Thomas Jones) off the cocky Jets to help JC lead the NFL's biggest Rushing attack. Oh, they're on the verge of the playoffs too!

******************************************************************************************************************************

Offensive Player of the Year: Maurice Jones-Drew 

Why: He's carrying the Jags and possibly carrying the Jaguars to the post season.

My take: He's nothing short of his "Pocket Hercules" nickname. He's small, fast and tough to tackle. He's currently second in the league in rushing(21 yards behind first), but come the end of the season I think he'll be the league leader. Hopefully Peyton Manning chokes in the regular season like he does in the post season and MJD gets another chance to show off it the playoffs.

Honorable Mention: Arian Foster. Started off the season with a great performance and has been consistent but MJD is catching up. He is also on a very disappointing team this year that will fall extremely short of expectations.

******************************************************************************************************************************

Defensive Player of the Year: Julius Peppers

Why: He's changed the Bears defense to what the way I remember it. He's been everywhere on the field. 11 Passes Defended, 8.0 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 2 interceptions. He rejuvenated this team to a playoff berth. He a lways plays with the pressure of having Jay Cutler on the other side of the ball, which is big cloud over his head.

My take: I wasn't sure on this one so I expect lots of criticism. Thanks players for not making it obvious enough. Ha!

Honorable Mention: (1) Cameron Wake, (2) Justin Tuck  (3) Jerod Mayo (4) Clay Matthews (5) James Harrison et al.

******************************************************************************************************************************

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Sam Bradford

Why: He's led the Rams to their first playoff berth in quite some time and he's finally given Steven Jackson the chance he deserves. What a great cornerstone to build your franchise on. Nice pick Rams!

My take: QB's all take the spot light; This one deservedly so. Bradford is the new face of the franchise and Rams fans better buy his jersey because he's the future of this team, and a bright one at that.

Honorable Mention: (1)Dez Bryant is the guy the Cowboys traded up to get. (2) Chris Ivory is the guy the Saints needed to fill in for the beat up RB corps in New Orleans (3) Rob Gronkowski is the red zone threat and blocker the Patriots were looking for after the TE housecleaning. (5) Jacoby Ford is the big play maker the Raiders needed on offense and special teams for some time.

******************************************************************************************************************************

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Ndamukong Suh

Why: He's been an immediate impact on that line registering 8.0 sacks so far this season. That dude is going to be a beast for years to come and he's been a huge reason the Lions have just won back to back game. Wow!

My take: Suh has been a great pick by the Lions and he is going to anchor that line which could become scary with a FA pick up or another solid draft pick. Oh, Jim Schwartz is going to do just that by the way. Look for the Vikings to be in the basement in a few years.... 

Honorable Mention: Devin McCourty won't make it because of Suh's immediate impact. But he'll get his Defensive Player of Year Award in a year or two. Yeah, he's that good. He's better than Revis by a long shot. McCourty does it all.

******************************************************************************************************************************

NFL Comeback Player of the Year: Michael Vick

Why: Because people have a sick obsession with this dude.

My take: Heaping an MVP Award isn't enough for people, they want to drowned him in awards. Hopefully his performances get drowned in the playoffs too. He does deserve this, but not the MVP award. He'll likely get both much to my chagrin.

Honorable Mention: (1) Wes Welker is the best candidate I think coming off that potentially career ending injury for a WR. (2) E.J. Henderson, wow, I can't believe that dude is playing already again. Did you see what happened to his leg?! (3) Leon Washington, Ok, his performance wasn't that good but I remember seeing his fibula sticking through his sock. Oh, he returned two TD's in the same game this year which impressed me.

 

Thanks for reading guys and fire away with hopefully constructive criticism. For those who don't like that kind of stuff just rip it apart then. Thanks for the long read either way.
