Looks good, Culpeppers having a hell of a year though. Let's see if Peyton can hold in.

Seriously though has Claiborne looked good? Didn't watch last night and haven't really heard much about him.

Both CBs for Dallas have been dominant up until Monday night. Claiborne gave up a long TD catch to Devin Hester, but he had no safety help and got beat on a double move (pretty bad actually). He could have played it much better, but other than that? He's exceeded expectations (I think). Brandon Carr has been a complete blanket on the outside so it's not like Claiborne hasn't been tested. He's getting thrown at but looking incredibly good. And he doesn't even know that he can put his hands on a receiver yet. When he learns how to use hands and actually jams a WR at the LOS... there is no telling how good he will be. He has unreal potential. I think he's been better than Chandler Jones who is getting the most attention. They do have the #1 ranked pass defense in the NFL, but that also has a lot to do with the fact that they've played Seattle and Tampa Bay. The Giants looked rusty in week 1, but Carr and Claiborne absolutely shut Nicks and Cruz down.

Baltimore will be a good test in week 6 after the bye. A little early for this, but...



MVP: Eli Manning
Offensive Player of the Year: Matt Ryan
Defensive Player of the Year: JJ Watt
Comeback Player of the Year: Adrian Peterson
Offensive Rookie of the Year: Robert Griffin III
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Morris Claiborne
Coach of the Year: Gary Kubiak


I went with Eli Manning over Matt Ryan for MVP. I think the Falcons, as a team, have been much more dominant than the Giants have. The Falcons were tested for the first time this past week against a team that the Giants demolished a week ago (Panthers). Ryan came up big in that game, but Eli Manning is more important since the Giants have been dismantled with injuries, as usual, at key positions. Manning has been playing the best football of any QB in the league. I know they're only 2-2, but with the injuries to his RB and WR corps that he's dealt with... and with the way he's played, he's been phenomenal, yet again.

I'll give Matt Ryan credit where its due. He is emerging, along with Joe Flacco, as an elite player. BUT, and it's a big but, both players have to prove it in the playoffs, and against the best defenses when it really matters. Ryan has more to prove, but if Julio Jones continues his development -- and he's still raw / not quite the player everyone thinks he is -- then Ryan will continue to put up big numbers and lead a great offensive attack.

Adrian Peterson might not be eligible for this award, but do I care? No, I don't. Peterson is one of my favorite players in the NFL and I feared that he may have rushed his return and, potentially, risked a career altering re-injury to that knee. With the way he has played thus far and the impact he has had on that offense... it's been huge to their 3-1 start. If nothing else, I'm just giving him mention for his incredible comeback. Hopefully he stays healthy and continues to get stronger.

Gary Kubiak has the best team in the NFL. The coach with the best team in the NFL should get this award. There is no reason why coaches like Marvin Lewis, Lovie Smith, Dick Jauron and Jim Haslett should have coach of the year awards just because their team played better than expectations. Or in the case of Lovie Smith -- when you suck as a head coach, but have a good staff around you with an elite defense resulting in a good record.

Way to copy my CBPOY and OPOY jerk.

Shane P. Hallam 10-02-2012 11:52 AM

Sorry! Didn't read any but the first post before, lol.

Nalej 10-02-2012 02:17 PM

Tavon Wilson hasn't made a fraction of an impact that Chandler Jones has. He's just always in the right spot at the right time. He barely even played against Baltimore.
He got a tipped pass for an INT and another INT where there was no one around but him.
Two FRs... that's just luck. Good on him for reacting quickly to the fumbles though.

In terms of rookies in NE go: Chandler > Hightower > Wilson

Wilson is showing signs and think he'll be a good/great player as he develops.

Don Vito 10-02-2012 02:19 PM

What nalej said. Tavon looks really promising but his stats are more of an indication of right place/right time. Who knows, that could be all it takes for voters. He doesn't see a ton of snaps on defense but I really think he has the potential to be a good one.

Bengals78 10-02-2012 02:40 PM

There is so much AJ and JJ love in here I may need a minute alone.

21ST 10-02-2012 04:05 PM

So the rookie of the year is basically between RG3 and Morris?

Grizzlegom 10-02-2012 04:09 PM

MVP: Matt Ryan
OPOY: Brian Hartline - He's leading the league in receiving yards!!
DPOY: JJ Watt
CBPOY: Peyton Manning
OROY: RGIII (Ugh)
DROY: Morris Claiborne
Coach of the Year: Jim Harbaugh

P-L 10-02-2012 07:07 PM

Sorry Shane, but Wilson hasn't even been the best rookie safety.

Well Mark Barron has been awesome thus far.

There may be more, but 4 rookie safeties actually look promising. That seems like a lot from one class. McMillan in GB looks better by the week, Barron as mentioned, Wilson as well, then there's Harrison Smith. I may have missed a name or two. Four just seems unusually high for one draft class bu we'll see who sticks.

Matthew Jones 10-02-2012 11:56 PM

Chandler Jones should get some DROY consideration too. I'm not sure if he will or should win, but he's already pretty physically dominant and causes a lot of trouble for left tackles.
