NFL Awards

The NFL season is down to the grand finale, the enchilada grande, the whole ball of yarn, or as some call it, the Super Bowl. We’ll spend the off week looking back at the season, not wasting time with an exhibition game that most of the players don’t even want to go to. Hooray Pro-Bowl. It was a great season in the NFL in 2010. Some surprising teams, spectacular plays, and tremendous performances made each week seem like you couldn’t miss it. And who can forget the scandals. The season was like a soap opera but was actually cool to watch the storyline unfold. The SportStew enjoyed the season and we wanted to announce our award recipients for the season. Here’s who we like...

MVP: Tom Brady
Why? Brady tossed 36 touchdown passes, only 4 interceptions, and led the NFL with a QB Rating of 111. He’s married to a super model, Gisele, who’s PFH. That’s TLA for “pretty hot.” Plus, Brady is growing his hair out for his starring role in the reboot of Hanson’s MMMBop.

Best Offensive Player: Arian Foster
Why? Foster scored 18 touchdowns (16 rushing and 2 receiving) and led the NFL with 1616 yards rushing. He was mostly ignored in the preseason fantasy football drafts but was the biggest fantasy football pickup after his Week 1 performance.

Best Defensive Player: Clay Matthews
Why? Matthews tallied 13.5 sacks, 5 tackles for loss, 2 forced fumbles, and an interception, which he returned for a score, on the season. Matthews got the nod over guys like Harrison and Mayo, because he is the best candidate to team up with the Rams’ James Laurinaitis to form the New Age Road Warriors and win the WWE title. And his hair even has a twitter account.

Dynamic Offensive Rookie: Sam Bradford
Why? Bradford kept the Rams in the playoff hunt until the final week while throwing for over 3500 yards and 18 touchdowns. Really there wasn't anybody else.

Dynamic Defensive Rookie: Ndamukong Suh
Why? Suh attempted an extra point for the Lions, due to an injury, but missed. Actually Suh led all rookies with 10 sacks. He also amassed 66 tackles, an interception, and found the end zone on a fumble return. Ndamukong means “House of Spears.”

Coach of the Year: Raheem Morris
Why? The Buccaneers almost snuck into the playoffs from a division that had three 10 win teams. Morris had 10 rookies that started a game this season. "Stats are for losers, so you keep looking at stats and we'll keep looking at wins."

Only one more week until the eight hour pregame show is on. Enjoy the game.
