  1. I like the occasional touchdown celebration if it’s clever, although I don’t think anyone will ever top Chad OchoCinco’s Irish step dance for me, but I guess when it comes to football I am one of those old farts who prefers the cool, cold steel of Chuck Foreman scoring more than 10 times a year and just flipping or handing the ball to the referee after every…single…score, letting everyone know that…he’ll be back.

    Offensive Most VALUABLE Player: Case Keenum, because QB is still the most important position.
    Offensive Best Player: Riley Reiff because of the injuries to Bradford, Cook and Diggs.
    Offensive Honorable Mention: Adam Thielen
    Offensive Most Improved: Jerrick McKinnon, although I was tempted to go with Nick Easton for his top pass blocking and slowly improving run blocking just to get a rise out of B.J.

    Defensive MVP: Xavier Rhodes for limiting or just plain taking out the opposing best receiver every game.
    Defensive Best Player: Harrison Smith
    Defensive Honorable Mention: Everson Griffin
    Defensive Most Improved: Anthony Barr, with a shout out to Shamar Stephen way down at the end of the bench.

    Special Teams MVP: Ryan Quigley
    Special Teams Best Player: Alright, you’ve got me. If I had to guess, I’d say Quigley or Jayron Kearse, with an honorable mention for Kentrell Brothers, but I guess I just haven’t been paying enough attention to special teams.
    Special Teams Bizarro, Up is Down, Down is Up Award: Kai Forbath for being almost perfect on field goals and stupefyingly imperfect on point after attempts.
