Don't forget the stupid people who vote for players who simply went from not playing well to having a decent year, ala Tannehill last year. The award really should only be for players coming back from injury or illness, but hey.

So there's a real chance that someone like Brady could win it with a great year just because his last year wasn't up to his usual standards.

Yes I have also not forgotten they gave it to Brees in 2004 because he broke out over a dude returning from cancer

They should just get rid of the award completely. No one remembers who won it 10 minutes after its announced.

Eh, I'm fine with it existing, it just needs to be clearly defined. Suffering a nasty injury or beating cancer, then coming back and playing at a high level deserves recognition.

Playing lousy then coming back to play better the next year does not.

The only comeback award I remember is 2004 because 14 year old me got really mad. Otherwise I don't care.

I went down a big Cam Newton nostalgia YouTube wormhole, but I have to share this one because I watched it happen with my own eyes. Most NFL receivers (at least Nkeal Harry) probably don’t come down with this. I never thought it would be possible for someone to come in and dominate the SEC of that era and be THAT much better than everyone, but he did it and then some. Only 1 season on the resume, but the best college player I’ve ever seen and probably ever.

Auburn was almost entirely a two person team surrounded by Vanderbilt level talent otherwise (Cam and Nick Fairley I mean)

Yup. Those two were head and shoulders above everyone else at their positions, the rest of that team with the exception of freshman year Michael Dyer was just a bunch of average guys.

I've decided to be excited about Newton. I think he's healthy and it will be interesting to see McDaniels's playbook completely unlocked. I think they'll rarely run him by design, but nearly every concept Josh has implemented over the years has come from systems built around mobile QBs. Just look at how ready he was for the package they put together for Jacoby. It was already coming with Stid, but it's another level with Cam.

They Patriots had legitimate interest in Lamar Jackson (not in the 1st though,) so they clearly were willing to make changes to the offense to a certain degree.

This season isn’t happening unless they go full NBA and hide at Disney world.

Even then the amount of thots flocking into the nba dorms is going to be insane and there will be so much Rona.

It seems really really weird that the state league officials are choosing is like the country's current rona capital and nobody seems to think this is a bad idea.

Lambeau Field is still trying to hire gameday workers...lol. Like they think there is going to be a normal season just with fans as long as they tarp off the first 5 rows of seats closest to the field and the workers wear masks.

That's pretty ironic indeed.

Between it being Florida and the thot factor, it will be like week 1 before 5% of the NBA tests positive. Unless the NBA has thought of that and there is a 14 day window of quarantine before a "visitor" can get onto the grounds.

Eh, I don’t think it’ll be nearly that bad. It seems like most NBA players are smarter, and the league is miles ahead of the NFL. Probably something to do with not getting your head bashed in regularly.
