2012 Regular Season Awards In My Opinion

I am going to give out my regular season awards to the most deserving recipient. I will start from the lower awards and finish with the MVP. The individual awards I will give my runner up in each award.

Executive of the Year- Thomas Dimitroff General Manager of Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons were the best and most dominate team in the NFC and was one of the more surprising teams in the NFL. 13-3 overall record

Coach of the Year- Pete Carroll from the Seattle Seahawks. This team was a surprise to many and may have been the most surprising team in the NFL.
11-5 overall record

Defensive Rookie of the Year- Luke Kuechly Linebacker from Carolina Panthers. He leads all rookies in Tackles with 164 total tackles, 10 pass deflects, 3 fumble recoveries, 2 INTs and 1 sack.

DRotY runner up- Bobby Wagner Linebacker from Seattle Seahawks. He was second in all rookies with 140 total tackles, 4 pass deflections, 3 INTs, and 2 sacks. He is the Heart of one of the best defenses in the league as a rookie.

Offensive Rookie of the Year- Robert Griffin the Third leads all rookies quarterbacks in Completion Percentage, Yards per attempt, Passer Rating, Rush yards and Rush tds. He was the single most effective rookie qb in the league.

ORotY runner up- Doug Martin had the third best season for a rookie running back in the history of the NFL. He had 1900+ yards from scrimmage and 12s tds.

Defensive Player of the Year- JJ Watt leads the league in sacks with 20.5, leads all non defensive backs with 16 pass deflections and has 4 forced fumbles. He has had probably more impact on a ball game than anyone on the defensive side of the ball.

DPoY runner up- Richard Sherman is the best player on the best defense in the NFL. He is leading the league in pass deflections with 24, has 8 INTs with 1 pick six and 3 forced fumbles with 1 recovery. He has been the best Cornerback in the league this year.

Offensive Player of the Year- Drew Brees had another fantastic statistical season leading the league in td passes and passing yards. He is top 10 in Completion Percentage and QB Rating.

OPoY runner up- Tom Brady he is top 10 in all major qb statistics. He is also on the number two team in the AFC.

Comeback player of the Year-Adrian Peterson is easily the most impressive player of the Year. He was 9 yards away from breaking the single season rushing record held by Eric Dickerson. 1 year ago he tore his ACL and MCL. He managed to come back a lot earlier than many people thought he would. He leads all running backs in rushing yard, ypa, rushes of 20+ yards, rushing yards per game and first downs.

Comeback Player of the Year runner up- Peyton Manning had 4 neck surgeries in a year. He has managed to come back from that and join the Denver Broncos. He picked up from where he left off with the Colts. He is just the same guy with a new team. He is also in the top 10 in all major quarterback statistical categories.

MVP- It has the same two entries as Comeback player of the Year with the same result. I have Adrian Peterson winning the MVP with Peyton Manning finishing a close second.

Those are my regular season awards the way I think they should go.
