By Will Brinson

We won't bore you by listing our preseason predictions (you can read those here), but suffice to say, all of mine were correct. Take a peak at the midseason hardware if you want too, but right now we're interested in dishing out the awards for the full season.


Speaking of which, I've already ranted on Drew Brees vs. Aaron Rodgers for the MVP, but I find it fascinating that at midseason, no one even picked Brees for Offensive Player of the Year, much less MVP. I'm not here to knock Brees, I'm just saying the award's for an entire season's worth of work.

Anyway, below are our full season picks. (You can also read Pete's full season picks here and Clark's full season picks here.)

Most are obvious but "BFA" is "Best Free Agent Addition," "WFA" is "Worst Free Agent Addition," and "DOH!" is "Pick I'd Like to Have Back." (Haha, yes I did pick the guy who eventually iced his own kicker to win "Coach of the Year." At least I was driving the Camwagon though.)

Dive in below and leave your gripes and complaints in the comments.

Saying Aaron Rodgers is no longer MVP because his backup had one good game is probably the weakest argument anyone can come up with. Last time I checked, he has helped lead his team to a 15-1 record, broke the single season passer rating record, and threw 45 touchdowns in 15 games. He has played consistent football throughout the entire season while Brees didn't come on fire until the last month.

If you understand what "most valuable" means, then you would realize that the argument isn't weak at all.  And if you think Brees didn;t come until teh final month, then you haven't been paying attention.

No, he's feeling sorry for Rodgers choking the ball away to lose to Arizona the year before.

Yea, yea.  To me that picture Of Drew Brees looks like he is feeling sorry for the poor team that is running onto the field to play them.  He knows they have no chance of beating him and his team but they have to go through the dance none the less.  The only reason he would want to be somewhere else is becasue he already knows the outcome.  :)

I am not taking anything away from Drew Brees. He has had one hell of a season but considering Rodgers put up just as good of numbers as Brees did while throwing the ball much less is pretty darn impressive and should give him the edge in the MVP race.

Brees is more important to the Saints than Rodgers is to the Packers.  Flynn proved that for us all...

A back-up having a great game vs. a bad secondary while playing for a starting job and a paycheck does not mean the starter is "easily replacable". If you truly believe that you either did not actaully watch Rodgers play or are too ignorant to know what you were seeing. Brees is a great player and had a great year, but Rodgers should be a clear winner in the MVP voting this year. He accomplished what he did w/155 fewer pass attempts (adjust the #'s as if GB threw for records like NO did and Rodgers throws over 6,000 yds) and a patched-up o-lins all year and nowehere near the running game the Saints had.

The Packers choose not to throw for records as Rodgers threw 155 fewer passes than Brees. Rodgers sat out a compiled 7 qtrs on top of that. If you take Rodgers completion % and yards per completion @ that rate he shatters what Brees did. Brees is a great player and had a great year., but Rodgers was simply better this year.
