MVP: Three Day Old Cheeseburger, Going with Tom Brady or Peyton Manning is incredibly boring. I went with Brady last year and got it right but who cares. I'm going out on a limb and saying Ben 'Three Day Old Cheeseburger' is going to have a massive season for the Steelers and going to help lead them to a division crown and one of the best records in the AFC. So I'll jump out on the ledge and pick him.
Offensive Player of the Year: LT, For all the love that Adrian Peterson has gotten in the offseason, LaDanian is still the best running back in the league. I expect him to bounce back from the playoff controversy with a massive 2008 campaign.
Defensive Player of the Year: Troy Polamalu, I went with him last year and he got hurt. He is the key to the Steelers defense, he stays healthy and they win a lot of games and he gets a lot of hype. He gets injured and they are screwed.
Offensive Rookie of the Year: Jonathan Stewart, Who trusts DeAngelo Williams as a starting running back? I don't and think Stewart will get the bulk of the carries and approach 1000 yards this year.
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Sedrick Ellis, If the Saints are to improve to the levels I think they will, than they will need sizable improvements on defense. One of these being Jonathan Vilma, the other beeing rookie Sedrick Ellis.
NFL Comeback Player of the Year: Marc Bulger, Injured most of last season, I expect Bulger to be back and firing with a vengeance.
Kicker of the Year: Shayne Graham, Ya that's right bring back the kicker of the year category. Simply so a redhead can win an award.
