    Chargers DE Bosa wins top defensive rookie award
    Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa has won the 2016 Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award in a landslide.

    Sitting out the first four games after a protracted preseason holdout didn't damage the third overall draft pick much. He still managed 12 1/2 sacks as the key threat on a San Diego defence that ranked only 16th overall.

    That performance earned Bosa 37 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. He easily outdistanced Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who received 10. The other three votes went to Falcons linebacker Deion Jones in balloting announced Saturday night.

    Bosa, whose father played three seasons with Miami (1987-89), is the second Charger to win the honour. Linebacker Shawne Merriman earned it in 2005.

    Packers WR Jordy Nelson wins Comeback Player award
    Green Bay's Jordy Nelson is an overwhelming choice as the 2016 Associated Press NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

    The Packers receiver severely tore ligaments in his right knee in the 2015 preseason and missed the entire season. He returned to full-time action last summer, caught six passes and scored a touchdown in the opener and never looked back.

    Nelson finished the season with 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and a league-high 14 touchdowns in helping Green Bay win the NFC North. That performance earned him 36 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. Miami defensive end Cameron Wake received 11 votes in results announced Saturday night.

    Nelson is the first Packer to win the award and only the second wide receiver. Carolina's Steve Smith was a co-winner in 2005.

    Falcons OC Shanahan wins top assistant coach award

    Falcons offensive co-ordinator Kyle Shanahan has won the 2016 Associated Press NFL Assistant Coach of the Year award.

    Apparently headed to the head coaching job of the 49ers after helping Atlanta on Sunday against New England in the Super Bowl, Shanahan earned 13 1/2 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. He beat Dallas defensive co-ordinator Rod Marinelli by three as 10 assistants drew votes in balloting announced Saturday night.

    Shanahan, whose father Mike won two Super Bowls as Denver's head coach, oversaw the NFL's most prolific offence, which scored 540 points. Quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones were All-Pros this season.

    Shanahan is the third winner of the award, following Todd Bowles, then Arizona's defensive co-ordinator, in 2014, and Wade Phillips, then Denver's DC, last season.

    Atlanta by 7 ...

    The Patriots have one distinction, they are the most hated team in the NFL. I guess people only like a winner to a point where enough is enough lol.

    Ok. So, it was only 6.
    But Brady took a hard hit that twisted his neck in the 4th.
    Monday Morning we'll see what the docs say.

    Oh. And Shooters prediction being off by 7?
    A farmer in New Guinea was killed by a falling tree. It altered the time line. ;)

    Like I said a few times the team that wins the coin toss will win the SB by a TD.

    Not kicking that extra point cost me 100K LOL.

    The sad part is that there is only one post that I wanted to see in this thread today that is the difference between two free sets of season tickets to the Cowboys next season or not but maybe CFH has a consolation prize for the dummie that choose to post elsewhere.

    All good, Make A Wish is the winner there ...

    WOW, that was the worst meltdown I have seen since ... scratch that, ever !!!

    So if all goes according to the rest of the country, the Falcon fans will soon be rioting, burning cars, breaking into stores, looting and protesting Brady's win by boycotting baked beans.

    Shooter will make another trip with his MTU next week.
    And predict Superbowl 52.
    Keep in mind though that predication made that far in the future depend on no time line bumps.

    Brady is an expert at keeping inflation at an easy to handle level.
