What I will never understand is how someone can win MVP, but not be OPOY or DPOY... Not that they would ever let a defensive player win MVP.

For real. It's like, "Okay you're the most valuable player in the league period. You are the absolute best...except for this other dude."

Dan Campbell should have gotten a nomination for Coach of the Year.

They should just give it to him outright. He's turned that dreadful franchise around in a little over 1 season.

Purdy over Olave for Rookie OPOY? No Burrow for OPOY? AP is dumb.

Burrow MVP and Jefferson OPOY, should be easy selections. If the Eagles somehow lose this weekend, could seal the deal.

If Mahomes or Allen get MVP then this award is truly rigged.

How is Bengals coach not nominated for COY. Winning there is so hard. They adapt and are playing great D.

He has arguably one of the most talented rosters in the league. He better be winning.

This will probably come down to who makes it furthest in the playoffs. Poor JJ. Tough competition with the QBs there. Allen winning over JB would be criminal.

The voting is over and doesn't include the playoffs. Mahomes will win simply because he's the top qb combined with also being the flashiest QB with the most Sports Center Top Ten throws.

Hopefully Burrow wins the SuperBowl.

I don’t care who wins the MVP. It hasn’t been relevant in 15 years. Sure it’s nice if a player I like wins it but in the grand scheme of things it’s ho-hum.

For me:
MVP - Burrow (Biased, I know)
DPOY - Parsons or Bosa
OPOY - Hurts or Jets
OROY - Wilson
DROY - Sauce
Comeback Player - Geno
Coach - Pederson or Campbell
Asst. Coach - Steichen
