Pride Of Detroit Awards: The Nominations

Over the past couple of weeks, we have found out how Detroit Lions players voted on their team awards. Now I'm interested in seeing what fans' thoughts are on the Lions' 2011 season, and to find out, I am launching a new series of posts: the Pride of Detroit Awards.

While some of the categories may overlap with what the players voted on, some are also different. So far, I have compiled the following list of awards for fans to vote on:

--Offensive Player of the Year
--Defensive Player of the Year
--Breakout Player of the Year
--Offensive Play of the Year
--Defensive Play of the Year
--Game of the Year

There are some obvious nominees for each of these categories, but before we move on to the voting phase of the first annual POD Awards, I want to gauge your opinion on who the nominees should be, so leave your thoughts in the comments. Also, if you have any ideas for other categories that we should vote on, please share them in the comments section.

Voting will commence for the POD Awards later this week, so make sure to leave a comment soon on any suggestions or ideas you have.
