Aaron Rodgers & Clay Matthews are both in the running for Best NFL Player (against Arian Foster, Troy Polamalu & Tom Brady). Rodgers is also nominated for Best Male Athlete (against Dirk Nowitzki, Rafael Nadal & Jimmie Johnson [when did driving become athletic?]). The fact that he is the only NFL player nominated for Best Male Athlete bodes well for him winning Best NFL Player.
Mikw McMoron is also nominated for Best Coach/Manager. His competition is Jim Calhoun (UConn basketball), Rick Carlisle (Dallas Mavericks), Gene Chizik (Auburn football), & Dom Starsia (Virginia lacrosse).
