2012 NFL Awards

Tomorrow night, the NFL will hold a red carpet event that where they hand out awards. Various awards are up for grabs, and in some cases the award is pretty much a given. With that said, I figured we see how the APC views the NFL Awards and get everybody else view on the 2012 season.

NFL Most Valuable Player Award - Adrian Peterson
-AP went off. 9 yards short of breaking the rushing record. Have to recognize the huge year he had.

NFL Offensive Player of the Year - Calvin Johnson
-NFL tends to not award the same award to same guy who won MVP (See Brees/Rodgers from 2011). So I give this out to Calvin Johnson for breaking Jerry Rice's season record.

NFL Defensive Player of the Year - J.J. Watt
-Watt was full speed all year long, on a team that everybody called crazy for letting Mario Williams go. 20.5 sacks on the season in his second year.

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year - Russell Wilson
-Wilson was consistent and didn't have as many turnovers as Luck. Wilson also rushed the ball effectively and did it without getting hurt, like RG3. Also tied Manning's record for touchdown passes by a rookie.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year - Casey Hayward
-Spent most the year either in slot or across Tramon Williams. Rookie DBs are going to be targeted and Casey stepped it up in a huge way.

Comeback Player of the Year - Peyton Manning
-Multiple neck surgeries are huge to come back from. I would like to give it to AP, but Jamaal Charles came back from an ACL injury also and tore it up for the Chiefs (only guy to tear it up for the Chiefs). Plus the fear that a coach and front office might have considering that one bad play might end Manning's career, prior to the season. Came out and played huge.

Coach of the Year - Chuck Pagano/Bruce Arians
-For a team with a rookie QB, a coach that went down with leukemia, and destroying a team to square one in the off-season, Pagano/Arians really worked their asses off to get the Colts from a 2 game winner to a 11 game winner.

Front Office of the Year - John Elway/Denver Broncos
-Walked into Denver, killed off Tebow time there and ushered in the Manning era. Add the fact he wouldn't quit on Moreno, and built a team that was set on protecting Manning and working around Manning, Elway made Denver a team to hate to face in the future.

So lets hear it from you guys. Who do you think wins and why?
