Excellent Article on NFL Awards by Gil Brandt on NFL.com !

18 posts in this topic

I thought this was an excellent article by Gil Brandt - and - I agree 100% with his reasoning with the lone exception being that I believe former Colts QB Peyton Manning ALSO deserves the "Comeback Player of the Year" award !!

Enjoy the article:

I think ADrian Peterson deserves comeback player of the year. Manning sat out, not because he could not plky, but as a percaution. Peterson had is leg destroyed on the second to last game of the year, came back in less than a year and is now on pace for 2000 yards.

Rookie of the year is a toss up. If both the skins and the colts make the playoffs, RG3 will win since he has superior stats. If Only Luck makes the playoffs, he will probably win Rookie of the year. If Luck beats the Texans in both games, he will probably win regardless of what RG3 does (baring anymore 4 TD performances)

Peyton will MVP. It's what he does.

Peyton didn't sit out as a precaution. He couldn't play.

AP missed two games last year.

Not down playing APs situation at all, just sayin'.

What he's done this year is amazing.

I think either or both would be a good choice.

I view Peyton as a lock for Comeback Player Of The Year. Sorry Adrian Peterson fans this race isn't even close. 4 neck surgeries vs 1 major leg injury...Next question.

Patriots fans have a right to be ticked over the lack of respect their field general gets. "Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots. Brady is having another typically great season; he's being taken for granted..." I actually think Brady has a legitimate shot at the MVP this year. Don't do dual winners either NFL. Pick 1 name thank you.

Coach Of The Year: Chuck Pagano not Bruce Arians. Pagano changed the whole mindset of this team from our 2 win season last season...

4 neck surgeries to help fix nerve damage that controls his throwing arm, but yeah you're right he sat out as a precaution. :facepalm: Why are you even on this forum.....nothing happening in D.C.?

Hey, I was following the Peyton Manning story last year, it was big news in the NFL. There was always a question of if he was going to come back that year. Even Bill Polian said he may have come back last year. Peyton and his doctors or whomever decided to just stay out for the year, but there was discussions of him coming back last year.

I'm not an *. I know what goes on in the NFL.

More like Polian was hoping Peyton could come back, so he could save his behind for putting together a team that couldn't function with anybody else but #18. As soon as the last surgery happened the chance of him playing in 2011 was slim to none.

Fair enough, but we can only go by what the Colts orginization - or any organization for that matter - tells us.

Peyton wanted to play, everyone wanted him to play for that matter, but he never got healthy enough. He even tried to comprimise n play during redzone visits come week 14.

I think in either way RGIII would won ROY award. Media loves stats, so that's sealed about a month ago...

From old articl;e, no link sorry

((( There were about six spots that changed hands when this article written in. Dec 31 2009 says the article , so things do change, dont know what happened since then though )))

Flawed MVP Vote Process ( excerpts )

There are 21 by my count ( NOT ME ARTICLES WRITER ) who may follow the league but are locked in on one team all season, following a team home and away. Their presence has the potential to throw things off for the 12 teams whose markets don’t have such a focused representative.

Tthe fact that the AFC East has a voter connected to each of its teams means more visibility through voters' lenses for a player on a team in that division than for one in the AFC South or NFC South.

In 2003, when Manning and Steve McNair split the MVP award, there was a voter who covered the Titans, but not one who covered the Colts. The Titans writer backed McNair. If there had been a vote out of Indy, it could have offset that and McNair might not have won his half of the trophy.

Still, that 20 percent of the voters are New York-based or 32 percent come from New York, Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia lends itself to complaints of East Coast bias -- an issue I am usually loath to give any credence. For a league that extends from San Diego to Miami to Minneapolis, could things be better dispersed?

& peter king & others based in Boston have votes

at thge time of the article it was noted the 50 ap voters

panel of 50 voters assembled by the Associated Press that determines the NFL's year-end awards: MVP, offensive and defensive player of the year, offensive and defensive rookies of the year, comeback player of the year, coach of the year and the All-Pro teams.

Barry Wilner, AP’s football writer, oversees the panel and manages the votes and results. He and AP are not focused on balance, either in terms of voters’ primary focus on their jobs or where they live and work

alot more to article and names the 50 at the time and where from and whose allegience too

Is the definition of an excellent article defined by the fact that the chose Luck and Manning for the respective awards they would be up for? Would you hav felt the same excellence if he had chosen RGIII and AP instead?

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
