Minnesota's runningback Adrian Peterson is the only Viking to receive an honorable mention.
Here's my awards (from week 1 throughout week 10):
Most Impressive Offensive Player = RB Adrian Peterson (leads the league in rushing yards), honorable mention: Drew Brees (Always aware of what's going around him and still leads the league in passing yards)
Most Impressive Defense Player = LB Joey Porter (the aging veteran has 12 sacks and 3 forced fumbles so far), honorable mention: Bruce Willis (proving that his rookie year was no fluke, he's all over the field)
Most Impressive Rookie = RB Chris Johnson (best rookie runningback this year, better and faster than Darren McFadden) honorable mentions: Both Flacco and Ryan for stepping in at the quarterback position so well
Surprise Team of the Year = Tennessee Titans (undefeated), honorable mention: Atlanta Falcons (6-3)
Most Disappointing Team = San Diego Chargers (4-5 record), honorable mention: Jacksonville Jaguars (I thought they had something good going on in 2007 and that it would get better this year, instead they have a 4-5 record)
Coach of the Year = Miami Dolphins' Tony Sparano for bringing life into the organization again, for his creative gameplan and the big win over the Patriots.
