NFL Hands Out Honors
by Ron Rego 2/3/13
The NFL gave out some hardware to those special players and
coaches that performed at the peak of the league this past season.
Getting top honors was Adrian Peterson for nearly breaking the
record for rushing yards falling only a few short. Peterson took
home the MVP and Offensive player of the year award home and
well deserved it as he led his Vikings to the playoffs. He had a
remarkable season and I have to say thanks, because he led me to
a championship season for me in my fantasy leeague.
Getting defensive player was JJ Watt of Houston, although he
would have traded it in for a playoff win over New England. Watt was a menace to the league almost every week this season. Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers won for best rookie defensive player while RG III took the offensive rookie player over fellow rookie QB's Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. All three led their teams to the playoffs this season.
Peyton Manning received the Comeback player of the year and deserved such
honors leading the Broncos to the #1 seed in the AFC. Indianapolis coach,
Bruce Arians took home the coach of the year award with a rookie QB and other
issues surrounding the coaching staff made him a shoe in for the award.
The NFL also announced the Hall-of-fame class: Bill Parcells, coach; Cris
Carter, wide receiver; Warren Sapp, defensive tackle; Larry Allen, offensive
lineman; Jonathan Ogden, offensive lineman; Curley Culp, defensive lineman (senior selection); Dave Robinson, linebacker (senior selection)
