What are your choices for the following Saints rewards, here are mine:
MVP: Drew Brees
- Although he has not played well as of late, an MVP IMO is someone who if taken off the team, it would fall apart.
Defensive Player of the Year: Cam Jordan
- 56 Total tackles and 33 solo with 7 sacks. This guy with another play making DL is very scary.
Offensvie Player of the Year: Marques Colston
- My first thought is to hand all offensive awards to Brees, but if I'm picking other players who contributed significantly, Colston has been at the top of that list. 65 REC 889 YDS 8 TD with a long of 40 has Colston on track for another 1K yard season. He has quietly put together a very good and consistent season, although he seems to have one very costly fumble per year (Giants-2012/Packers-2011).
Rookie of the Year: Joe Morgan
I have to admit I didnt believe this guy had work ethic or sure hands to be successful in the NFL, but I was dead wrong. The Saints have found the new Devery Henderson but with much better hands. Morgan is currently sitting at 7 REC 310 YDS and 2 TD, but its hard to say that each one of those catches wasnt a game or momentum affecting catch.
Bust of the Year: Malcolm Jenkins
I had high hopes that Spags would bring out the best in Jenkins, but finishing third on the team in tackles and only one INT is not play making FS numbers to me. I will always say that I believe Jenkins belongs at CB.
Coach of the Year: Spags
This one is tough to fill in such a terrible season, and by no means do I believe in giving awards to coordinators who would most likely be fired in any other situation, but Spags has gotten this defense to buy into his system and get better every week. With a draft and offseason with Saints at full strength, I believe Spags can get this defense back to playing complimentary football, and let Brees carry us to glory.
