After years of being called the best coach to never win a Superbowl, Andy Reid leads the Chiefs to one this year.
Offensive Rookie of the Year- Leonard Fournette RB Jacksonville- Looked explosive in his first NFL Game, and should get a lot of carries.
Defensive Rookie of the Year- T.J. Watt LB Pittsburgh – Made a big debut with 2 sacks and an interception. If he keeps that up, he is a lock for Defensive ROY.
Offensive Player of the Year- Aaron Rodgers QB Green Bay. Best Qb in the league could be poised to put up big numbers with a full and healthy compliment of receivers and not much of a running game to speak of.
Defensive Player of the Year- Brandon Graham DE Philadelphia- Has always been among the most efficient pass rushers, graded very highly by PFF. The only problem has been he didn’t finish sacks. This year, he will finish those sacks.
Coach of the Year- Andy Reid HC Kansas City- Reid is a great coach. He can struggle with time management, and in-game adjustments, but no one gets his team ready to play better than Big Red. A big year from the Chiefs equals big year for Andy.
MVP- Aaron Rodgers QB Green Bay- See Offensive Player of the Year.
And there are my 2017 season predictions. Do you agree? Disagree? Think I know nothing about Football and should delete my blog and never write about sports again? Share your opinion in the comments. As usual with predictions, most of this will be wrong. But as is tradition, I will gloat about the few things I get right while ignoring how wrong I was about everything else.
