2008 NFL Preseason Lester Awards
With the 2008 NFL Season ready to kick off in a few weeks, I decided it was a good time to get my predictions out there.
MVP: Adrian Peterson
I think the Vikings will win the NFC North and All Day will run for 1800 yards and 12 TDs.
Runner Up: Peyton Manning
Offensive Rookie of the Year: Jonathan Stewart
It is Darren McFadden’s Award to lose, and I think he’ll do just that. Oakland won’t fully tap into Run DMC’s potential. Meanwhile, Jonathan Stewart will run wild for the Panthers.
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Jerod Mayo
Mayo will pile up the tackles and big plays for the Patriots.
Runner-up: Glenn Dorsey
Comeback Player of the Year: Ricky Williams
He could be the feel-good story of the year in the NFL. From Riches to Rags to Riches again.
Runner-up: Deuce McAllister
Defensive Player of the Year: Jared Allen
With Pat and Kevin Williams taking attention away from Allen, he could challenge Strahan’s Sack record.
Runner-up: Patrick Willis
Most Improved Player: Robert Meachem
Meachem could explode on the scene for the Saints to the tune of 80 catches for 1000 yards and 6 TDs.
Runner-up: Ted Ginn, Jr.
Coach of the Year: Jack Del Rio
The Jags just keep improving. They nearly knock off the Colts in the AFC South.
Runner-up: Mike Tomlin
All-Lester First Team
AFC Division Winners:
New England Patriots
San Diego Chargers
New York Jets
NFC Division Winners:
New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
New England Patriots over New Orleans Saints
