NFL Award predictions
Award- Comeback player of the year
Prediction- Alex Smith
Explanation - Alex Smith almost had 17 surgeries on his leg. It impressive that he walked again let alone play football. And he wasn't just on the roster he started games and help lead the football team to the playoffs. Their is no reason he shouldn't win this award.
Award- Coach of the year
Prediction- Kevin Stefanski
Explanation- Before this year the last time they made the playoffs was in 2002 and the last time they won a playoff game was in 1994. Stefanski took this Browns team to the playoffs and beat the Steelers in the first round. Doing all that as a first year HC and during COVID he definitely deserves this.
Award- Offensive rookie of the year
Prediction- Justin Herbert
Explanation- Now I don't think that Herbert deserves the award I believe Justin Jefferson does no shade to Herbert, but I do think the award will go to Herbert. The NFL typically gives MVPS and ORTY to QBs. And what can I say Herbert has been outstanding this year having the 3rd most passing yards in the NFL. The reason I think Jefferson deserves it because he is already a top 5 WR in the NFL and Herbert is not a top 5 QB in the NFL. Don't get me wrong they are both very great players.
Award- Defensive rookie of the year
Prediction- Chase Young
Explanation- Chase Young was above average, he didn't wow me but he disappoint me. Their is just nobody else that you could give this award to. He was on a different level than every other defensive rookie.
Award- Offensive player of the year
Prediction- Aaron Rodgers
Explanation- This award is really between 2 people Aaron and king Henry. The reason I have Aaron winning it is because he was more consistent than Derick Henry. For example In the playoff game against the ravens Henry averaged 2.2 yards per carry. And yes he did lead the NFL in rushing yards but he also lead in NFL in attempts by 66.
Award- Defensive player of the year
Prediction- T.J Watt
Explanation- Watt lead the NFL in sacks and was simply the best defensive player this year. One could say that Xavier Howard deserves this but in my mind he isn't even a top 3 CB just because he lead the league in picks doesn't mean he deserves this award. Other people say that Aaron Donald should win but Watt has more sacks, tackles, and forced fumbles.
Prediction- Aaron Rodgers
Explanation- Aaron Rodgers was playing out of his mind. He may have not had the passing yards but he did lead the NFL in passing TD and led his team to the one seed in the NFC. He was doing this with really only one weapon Devante Adams versus Patrick Mahomes who had Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and much more depth at the WR position. If you take away Rodgers from this team and put in Kirk Cousins who is average they go from being a 1 seed to not making the playoffs. That is why I think Aaron Rodgers in the most valuable player.
