So who should win the list of NFl regular season awards this year?
MVP - Aaron Rodgers. With all due respect to Brees, Aaron Rodgers was the best quarterback in the NFL this season. Taking his team to 14 wins (he sat out the 15th), the number one seed, and a new record for QB rating does it for me.
Offensive Player of the Year - Drew Brees. He didn't just break the single season passing record, he destroyed it. Drew Brees also led the NFL in TD passes. The guy had a monster year and deserves this award.
Defensive Player of the Year - Terrell Suggs. With all due respect to the sack monsters in the NFC, no defensive player was more valuable than T-Sizzle. He showed up in big games and was a huge part in Baltimore claiming the AFC's number 2 seed. He also led the NFL in forced fumbles. The guy is a playmaker.
Offensive Rookie of the Year - Cam Newton. I like Andy Dalton, but his team won on team effort where Cam Newton carried his team in a lot of games. He had one of the best rookie seasons in history. I had my doubts, but the kid is a gamer.
Defensive Rookie of the Year - Von Miller. His rookie season was as good as Suh's rookie season, and that's high praise. He was a monster pass rusher and was very good against the run to boot. Excellent player.
Comeback Player of the Year - Matthew Stafford. Matthew Stafford had on the of the most prolific passing seasons in NFL history after missing most of the last two years with injuries. He's a star in the making, Detroit couldn't ask for a better young QB.
Coach of the Year - Jim Harbaugh. The 49ers were a bad team last year. They didn't make any big moves, but somehow they turned it around and earned the number two seed in the NFC. That's good coaching and it deserves an award.
