    [size=18px]Sporting News Announces 2005 NFL Awards [/size]

    Tuesday, January 31, 2006

    Sporting News today announced the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaun Alexander as Player of the Year, the Indianapolis Colts’ Tony Dungy as Coach of the Year, the San Diego Chargers’ Shawne Merriman as Rookie of the Year and All-Pro Team in the magazine’s annual NFL Awards.

    In his league debut season, Shawne Merriman established himself as one of the NFL’s biggest hitters. As a rushing linebacker in the Chargers’ 3-4 defense, he blew through and around blockers with tremendous power and speed – the kind of weapon few teams possess. Merriman won the voting easily over second-place, Cadillac Williams, of the Bucs.

    The 2005 NFL season saw Shaun Alexander become a more complete back and team leader. The skillful running back rushed for 1,880 years, with a NFL single-season record 28 touchdowns and league history second-best 168 points. He also led the NFL in big-play runs (10 yards or more) with 54 and became the first player to score at least 15 touchdowns in five consecutive seasons. Alexander, 28, beat out the Colts’ Peyton Manning for Player of the Year honors, voted on by pro personnel directors.

    Despite a difficult season—a mixture of the elation over his players’ achievements and the tragedy of his son’s death near the end of the regular season— Tony Dungy guided the Colts to a league-best 13-0 start and wrapped it up with another AFC South title. Dungy, 50, leads by the strength of his character, not by fiery rhetoric. In a vote by his peers, Dungy received 14 votes, and the Bears’ Lovie Smith finished second with 6 votes.

    The Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year and All-Pro team honors were determined through voting by 21 NFL pro personnel directors. The Coach of the Year was determined by 26 NFL head coaches.

    The Sporting News 2005 NFL Awards will be featured in the Feb. 10th issue, on sale Wednesday, Feb. 2nd.
