Default No Defensive or Offensive POY for the Broncos

Watt for defense and Peterson for offense POY

Watt over Miller, Not too much of a surprise in my opinion.

Manning gets Come back player of the year, which is no surprise at all.

edit: fixed the thread title

They vote on this right after the last game of the year right? That's probably why AD won

Watt and Peterson won DPOY and OPOY. They haven't awarded MVP yet, as far as I know.

At this point who cares? I'm sure Manning doesn't. He has 4 already why should get 5 MVPs and only one SB ring?

Smith got no votes? I figured he would get a couple if not split the ballot.

If this is true this actually makes me feel better that at least one guy saw Miller play.

If it is by the same voters as the HOF. Or even if it is not. It takes An act of congress to anyone to recognize someone that is not a state removed from the mississippi.

Just where the vast majority of the writers are for that matter where the teams are.

As for Denver who represents them in any voting?

Might be the reason we get very little love.

Yes manning got a prize but had ap been in Denver and manning been in any city the likelyhood of AP getting any honors would be slim to none.

The reason we don't get any love from the HOF is because Bronco fans don't care about anyone pre 1996. It took a Monumental effort by Tom Mackie to get Floyd in, he gets him in and Bronco fans weren't even excited. I made the trek, those of us who went were dedicated Floyd fans who had great memories of him. The "kiddies" here didn't care because they didn't watch him play. He was a Bronco for ****s sake! I have researched guys before my time pre-1973ish. Guys like Rich "Tombstone" Jackson who deserve to be in the HOF.

BTW Jeff Legwold is the Denver reporter who did Floyd's presentation to the HOF. I can't remember if he is the only Denver reporter with a vote or if Woody has one also.

Not sure who the HOF voters are from DEN are. Since there are 32 teams I'd guess of the 50 voters that would mean 18 at large voters most of which would probably not know how to pick Colorado off the map let alone Denver.

I used to work at DEN apo the old Stapleton. During ski season most of the skiers would have their ski outfits on when they got off the plane. Most did not realize they had to drive atleast 2 hours to the nearest ski area some even asked where the ski lifts were.

Most folks from NYC do not have a clue.

I normally don't care about these awards anymore, but 49-1? Really?

Watt got all the pub in the first half, and he did fade somewhat down the stretch. And where was he in that New England game anyway?

I'm not going to whine about Von not winning, but c'mon, Watt wasn't 49-1 better.

Agree 49-1 part but, the Watt hype machine was strong throughout so no wonder it turned out that way.

Watt was 50-0 better, but apparently there was an orange and blue vote.

Quote:
J.J. Watt has been named the Associated Press' 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Watt was a near unanimous selection with 49 of a possible 50 votes. He finished first in the NFL with 20.5 sacks and 22 tackles for loss, and obliterated the unofficial records for batted passes (16) and defeats (56). He also led the league in tackles for loss (22), had 76 QB disruptions, and posted a defensive stop on 17.2 percent of his snaps. Texans DC Wade Phillips insists Watt's 2012 season was the "absolute best" of any defensive lineman in NFL history. Broncos linebacker Von Miller is the only other player to receive a vote for the award.

The true MVP this year was Rahim Moore for the Ravens. Yeah, I'm still not over it, at least not till training camp next year.

I'd think Miller would get more than 1 vote but oh well. I'm happy for Peterson, he's a classy guy and works very hard to be the best. He wasn't on a great team either, much deserved IMHO.

Don't care. I get these are regular season awards but don't step on your dick with the top seed and complain about any issue. There should be no complaining from anyone at the Valley. You ****ed up so forget it...I don't want to hear it. No one is entitled to any award for anything. Get back to work in the facility and zip it....have some shame.

Watt should have been unanimous DPOY, someone robbed him. This was the easier choice among the NFL Honors.

Miller is great, but I've never seen a defensive lineman play like Watt.
