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...

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?

    • I always said last year that Brock had a lot of potential to be good. And no it was not "she wants to bash Peyton" kinda stuff either even though many had blinders on to how the backup behind Peyton was more then adequate. I really really DID like how Brock looked at times and the guy has a great arm. He had his issues with a few games clearly and some bad moments (particularly in a few divisional games) and has work to do now being young and on a new team. But, I cringed hard when he signed with Houston. AFC South has 4 young QBs now with a lot of potential which is worrying to some degree.   Houston will be better at QB, period. You can't get much worse then they were last year there. They had Brandon Weeden for crying out loud in their game vs. us and they won. I am very interested to see their rematch with the Chiefs early in the season since Kansas City is another very very underrated team heading into the season who is solid on both sides of the ball and I think KC could be a legit SB contender with how the AFC currently looks. Keep in mind you don't always need to have the golden boy QB, Manning is gone now and Brady is the only one really left in the AFC with the super glossy elite resume. Big Ben is always hurt too. We might head into a direction in the AFC where strong defenses with "good enough" QBs get by, like the Ravens in 2012.   I have this strange hunch Houston could be an 11-5 type of team if they stay out of major injury holes but I would not bet money on it either with how recent history has been. But, I believe Houston has been 9-7 the last few years, all it would take is a few breaks for them to increase to say 11-5.   This isn't all based on preseason either, Houston had a good defense LAST YEAR and actually shows up to play strong defense at times. Brock also looked solid to me at times LAST YEAR and might only get better. Now you combine it all and Houston has more potential at times then Colts fans might often want to admit out loud. The Houston coaching staff is underrated too at times managing all these woeful QBs and injuries.   Of course not saying the Colts can't win the division either but our o line leaves a lot to be desired and the secondary can be a joke.   This isn't the old days with Manning/Dungy where 12-4 was a natural given right almost.     Narcosys mentioned the Titans being good. I have not paid as much attention to them and always figured they might be a year or two away. But, they have nowhere to go but up too.   The Jags baffle me, they have a lot of pieces that spell out "good team" but have never been able to put together this consistent win streak. Once a year though they give us fits. Last year they had a shot and then lost some game to the Chargers killing their chances, thats why the Jags baffle me.     Overall the AFC South is not going to be easy maybe as years past. The QB situation is getting better and the Colts are a little behind in this development around Luck as a team. I think Luck looks terrific right now and healthy, but seeing him knocked around on the field etc. worries me greatly.
    • I really only pay attention to what happens when the starters are playing significant minutes usually in the 3rd preseason game.  No one seemed worried about how poorly the starters played against Philly last season in the preseason.  But that same crappy team showed up in the first to regular season games.  Chuck put an emphasis on playing well this preseason in hopes to avoid the slow start again.  That OL is poor at best against a good front 7.  It's saying something when the plan was to play Luck into the 3rd quarter and Chuck didn't send him back out because he was taking such a beating.  I just don't see this team magically improving when the regular season starts.  
    • No.     We are NOT cutting Castanzo.       We just signed him to a NEW contact one year ago.   So,  the Dead Cap money would be huge.      We have to coach him up and get him back to his previous level of play.   We're not cutting him.     Get the thought out of your head.  
    • Why stop at posting this terrible thread twice?
    • I had to ask my wife to read the title of this post because I couldn't believe my eyes.  Yes she said, That is what they're asking.  Thanks hon, time to call it a day.
