    The Vikings postseason awards predictions thread!

    All right ... here is the official postseason awards prediction thread.

    I think at this point it is safe to say that Favre is in the running for MVP, and Peterson is in the running for MVP (longshot) and Offensive Player of the Year.

    Harvin is definitely in the running if not flat out in the lead for the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

    Allen is no doubt in the running for Defensive Player of the Year.

    Favre, Peterson, Rice, Hutchinson, McKinnie, Harvin, Shiancoe, Allen, P.Williams, K.Williams, Greenway, Henderson, Griffin and Longwell all arguably have shots at the Pro Bowl or All Pro.

    So let it be known ... do we think we nab any hardware? If so, what?

    I will get us started by saying right now I think that Peterson is going to have a huge second half and likely win offensive player of the year.

    I think Harvin will win Rookie of the Year.

    And I think Favre, Peterson, Hutchinson, McKinnie, Harvin, Allen, P.Williams, K.Williams and EJ Henderson will go to the Pro Bowl.

    Peterson, Hutchinson, Allen and K-Will all take home All-Pro honors.

    All Pro is where the money is at.

    Pro Bowl is popularity contest.

    No offense to your thread though.

    Harvin has to be mentioned in rookie of the year.

    The poll is not the entire thread folks.

    Post your thoughts on MVP race, ROY race, Def. POY race ... etc.

    But I like your picks IBP ... but when we are 14-2 ... we will land more than 5 Pro Bowlers!

    Did you just read the poll?

    It is more of just a reference point ... the question was ALL postseason awards.

    the issue with that is voting has begun already.
    Guys like Rice, who might eventually put up good enough numbers likely won't get in because they picked up their game too late.
    Our run D isn't that great, i don't see Pat getting in.
    Greenway and Henderson haven't been terrific, Winfield's been Hurt and our safeties are awful.

    Shank has an outside chance, but Witten and Gonzalez will get the TE spots

    Yeah ... all that is why I see McKinnie as definitely getting rewarded. I also think that there is a good chance that Longwell goes.

    As for the voting ... it is only 25 % of it ... that is not an awful lot. I like Rice's chances if he keeps producing. I also like Henderson's chances as he has had a long run of people talking about how he "deserves to go to the Pro Bowl."

    Greenway and Shank are definitely long shots. Same with Winny and/or Griffin.

    Not much into the Probowl as it is a popularity contest with the biggest yutz's having the biggest say so usually the best don't get there and the ones that do don't go cause they know its a popularity contest that isn't worth going to.
    WHEW.


    Had to take a deep breath for that one.......

    Anyway, some thoughts.......

    Players on the Vikes that deserve/or will deserve consideration for the "Popularity Game".

    a.
    Obviously our starting QB. - Some fans will think its his last year, (I don't) and will get alot of sentimental votes along with warranted votes.
    b.
    AD -
    I don't think he is gonna win the rushing title this year, but he is the face of the Vikes and will have enough ESPN highlight clips to get in.
    c.
    Rice - Kid is a sponge.
    Amazing what an athlete can do when he is healthy. Probably won't get in this year as the trend is for first timers to get in the year after they deserve it if they get in at all.
    d.
    Greenway - Love his game.
    Cat is everywhere.
    Can't believe someone hacked on him for being out of position on one play yesterday.
    Seriously, one play.
    Same thing with Rice though, he won't get in this year.
    Maybe next year.
    e.
    JA.
    Nuff said.
    f.
    K-will.
    Nuff said.
    g. Phat Pat.
    Kindof a sentimental pick for me.
    Hope he makes it.
    Should get in on his name but I don't think his play is at the top anymore.
    h. PH.
    Same as Chad and Rice.
    Deserves it but not sure if he gets in this year.
    Next year might be his first showing.
    i.
    Shanc.
    He started to shine last year and just keeps getting better.
    j.
    Whinny.
    I am gonna pencil him as well just like I did Phat Pat, but believe that his injuries this year might slow him on the voting.
    Course, it might not.
    Remember, it is a popularity contest.
    All the fans have been hearing is how bad our secondary is without him.

    What I think might be a better discussion is "How many Vikings players play the game the way it should be"?

    Key note:
    This doesn't mean that they are pro bowl players but rather players who get after it until the play is done.
    Thier play indicates that they show up early and leave late working at thier craft. Most importantly, thier play puts the team first, instead of individual accolades, such as rushing titles, ROY's and Probowl nominations.....

    a.
    Our current QB.
    b.
    AD
    c.
    Chad
    d.
    Ray Edwards
    e.
    JA.
    f.
    Phat Pat
    g.
    Kevin Williams
    h.
    EJ
    i.
    Ben Leber
    j.
    Whinny
    k.
    Griff
    l.
    Hutch
    m. Herrera
    n. Shanc
    o. Sauce
    p. Dugan
    q. PL
    r. Hell, almost every player on this team is a cat of that ilk.
    Probably why we are having such a successfull year don't ya think.

    Props to our FO pukes, (especially Studwell and Patton) for finding the players and the coaching staff, for getting the best out of them.

    Wonder what would happen on this site if the Chiller got the top HC award?
    ;D ;D ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
