Best Player in Baseball- Trout! No, not the fish, the person.
Right Tackle of the Week- Kelechi Osemele got out of Houston without allowing a sack to J.J. Watt. While he wasn't lined up directly across from Watt, I'm giving him credit.
J.J. Watt Award- Speaking of...
Jets Touchdown of the Week- Dustin Keller finally get back into the action.
Game of the Week- The Redskins/Giants game was great. Both quarterbacks put on a clinic.
Time to Jump off the Bandwagon- The Patriots are going to win their division, but by default. They aren't exactly that great of a team, and I will not trust them at all in the playoffs. They will probably get to 11-5, but that is not what I expected.
Time to Jump on the Bandwagon- My New York Jets are definitely better than I thought. Maybe Rex Ryan is the smartest man on the face of the Earth.
King of the Bottom of the Hill- Now that Brady Quinn is the starter, Matt Cassel has earned his crown. Once you are replaced by Brady Quinn, you should probably retire.
Worst Team in the NFL- The Jaguars. I have no more words.
Panda of the Week- The World Series is over, the Tigers aren't hitting, and they haven't faced Vogelsong or Cain yet.
Coach of the Week- I'm going with an offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano. Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots fumbled the kickoff with a tied score with two minutes left. Unfortunately, the Jets relied on the playcalling of Sparano and lost 7 yards in the process. Had the Jets hired a functional offensive coordinator, they would not have used a Tebow direct snap on first down, could have gotten into the endzone while taking more time off the clock, and probably won the game.
Best Team in the NFL- Out of nowhere, the Chicago Bears have by far the best defense in the league. Everyone knew that unit would be good, but not like this. Combined with a competent offense, they are the best team in the league, right up there with the Texans.
My Fantasy Team Player of the Week- Not Kyle Rudolph... I still won however.
Amar'e Stoudemire/Javale McGee Stupid Act of the Week- The aforementioned Sparano debacle, sending Prince Fielder home (from first base) in the second inning of Game 2 of the World Series, and the Stephen A. Smith situation. Yikes.
Amar'e Stoudemire Injury of the Week- Ruptured cyst in his left knee. Originally thought to be 2-3 weeks, but instead it will take about 4-5 weeks for him to heal. This man...
Birthday of the Day- Good ole Corey Dillon. Also, that Wayne Rooney fellow.
Bye Week, Still the G.O.A.T.- Peyton Manning was amazing sitting on his couch. Great performance, he really mastered that guacamole.
Mike Trout Award- He should win World Series MVP. Because he exists.
