Mods, possibly consider stickying this thread for maximum productivity?
Hello ExtremeSkins! I know our season definitely ended on a bad note, but now that our QB has had his surgery and can begin the road to recovery, let's do our part and vote our guys into some awards! Let's begin the offseason right!
There have been other threads for a couple of these (namely RotY and FedEx Ground), but I wanted to make one big collaboration thread for all the awards facing our players (including one Alfred Morris just tweeted about), as well as to add to the OP if any more come to attention.
Anyway, here are the awards a few of our role players are nominated for this season. You are allowed to vote for all of the awards AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WISH, so vote often!
***VOTING TIP: FOR THE NFL.COM LINKS, YOU DON'T NEED TO CLICK "VOTE AGAIN" TO CONTINUE VOTING. JUST CLICK THE PLAYER PICTURE, THEN "SUBMIT VOTE," AND REPEAT***
Pepsi Max Rookie of the Year (Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris)
FedEx Ground Player of the Year (Alfred Morris)Fans can vote for one of these five players on www.nfl.com/rookies through 9:00 PM EST on Tuesday, January 29 to determine the 2012 Pepsi MAX Rookie of the Year.
The 2012 Pepsi MAX Rookie of the Year award will be announced in New Orleans, the site of Super Bowl XLVII, at NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on February 2, 9-11 p.m. EST on CBS.
Making the right plays on the field takes talent, perseverance, focus and a whole lot of hard work. These six air and ground players really delivered this season and now it's time for the fans to make the call as to the two who will be this week's FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year. At FedEx, we know the same skills that made these players successful on the football field are what delivers success in every field. Take a minute to deliver your vote for the players and the business you think had the best plays this season.
GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year (Kirk Cousins)
Vizio Top Value Performer Award (Alfred Morris)Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins
Cousins completes Redskins' comeback: As he was marching the Washington Redskins down the field in an attempt to tie the game in the final minute against the Baltimore Ravens, QB Robert Griffin III was injured on a scramble and had to leave the game. Rookie backup Kirk Cousins picked up where RG3 left off, hitting WR Pierre Garcon for a touchdown and then forcing overtime on a two-point conversion run play. In overtime, Kai Forbath booted a 34-yard field goal to provide the Redskins with a 31-28 Week 14 victory, the team's fourth straight.
Voting ends Thursday, January 24 at 9:00 PM EST.
Solidifying the running game in Washington, Morris formed a 1-2 punch with their star QB. A 6th round selection in 2012, Morris finished the season with the 2nd-most rushing yards in the league, totaling 1,613 and 13 touchdowns. His $390,000 base salary makes him a terrific VIZIO TOP VALUE PEFORMER candidate.
I'm also including mobile QR codes for each of the awards in the next post, so there's no excuse for you not to be voting all day long!
