Yes. I’m well aware that the Bears deserve any game balls awarded. I’m well aware that few Vikings players did well on Monday Night. Still, here at Vikings Territory, we take tradition very seriously (we told Austin he couldn’t wear his color rush uniform to work), and our tradition is to try and award this thing every… single… week.
This week is one of the toughest in recent memory, I struggled to even make nominations, so I’ve allowed for a slight variation from the norm in the poll below. “None” is actually an option this week.
Here are the winners so far in 2016:
WEEK ONE: Eric Kendricks
WEEK TWO: Sam Bradford
WEEK THREE: Everson Griffen
WEEK FOUR: Xavier Rhodes
WEEK FIVE: Adam Thielen
WEEK SEVEN: Cordarrelle Patterson
You all have yet to award this to the same player twice in the first six games, so let’s get to the nominations to see if that finally changes.
