AP OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Aaron Rodgers: Aaron Rodgers is the clear cut favorite to run away with this award. He has the weapons to amount massive numbers and he will improve the team’s record of 10-6 last year. Add the Top 5 defense coming back this year and he can be on the field a lot padding his stats. Rodgers got his ring and a Super Bowl MVP last year, all that’s left now is a season MVP which this year seems all in sight.
OFFENSIVE ROOKE OF THE YEAR
Daniel Thomas:With no Ronnie, no Ricky, and only a Reggie now, Daniel Thomas has the opportunity to shine as bright as Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring. He will have his share of carries which will reach at least 200 giving him the chance to potentially break 1,000 yards rushing. Thomas was as explosive as any rookie coming out of college, look out for him in the sunshine state he can provide a major punch.
AP DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Clay Matthews: How can I go against this monster? He’s young, ruthless, and finished second in last year’s AP voting, which I believe he should have been first but that discussion is for another day. Regardless, barring any injury he should claim his first AP Defensive player of the year edging out the likes of James Harrison, Haloti Ngata, and Troy Polamalu.
DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
Von Miller:Von Miller the 2010 Butkus award winner will be a force to be wrecking with early on. Taken number two overall by the Denver Broncos he reminds me a lot of Ndamukong Suh just in another position. His 11.15-second 60-yard shuttle broke the NFL combine linebacker record. He will be wearing number 58 in honor of his all time favorite player Derrick Thomas which is always a plus.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Steve Spagnuolo:Steve Spagnuolo isn’t only a risky pick, it’s a sexy pick in my opinion. The Rams finished 7-9 last year and barely missed making the playoffs last year. A heartbreaking loss to Seattle in the last game of the regular season cost their chance to progress as a team. Fast Forward one year later and the Rams are a legit 10 win team. If they find a way to sneak in the playoffs we all know anything can happen. Just look at their division rivals last year they got past the New Orleans Saints.
COME BACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Ryan Grant: I know you guys must be thinking right now! He’s a Packers fan. Well I’m not, It just happen to be that they won the Super Bowl in amazing fashion, missing Jermichael Finley, Ryan Grant and lost Charles Woodson during the Super Bowl. My comeback player is Ryan Grant he only had 8 rushing attempts all last season since he was lost in the 2nd quarter of the season opener. He will rebound nicely, he’s a legit top notch running back.
