You know, I was going to throw an open thread up here for the "NFL Honors" show that will come on NBC at 8 PM Central time tonight, but apparently the NFL has taken the brilliant step of releasing all of the winners before the show is actually aired, meaning that now I don't have to waste time and bandwidth with it.
So, if the title of the article didn't already give away the results of the one award that Viking fans would be interested in tonight. . .well, prepare to break out your "shocked" face:
According to ESPN's Kevin Seifert, Suggs received 21 votes for the award, while Allen received 14 (out of 50).
I mentioned in my post yesterday about the subject, I thought the race for the Defensive Player of the Year would come down to Allen and Suggs, and it did. Do I think the right guy won? Well, I'm biased, so my answer would obviously be "no," but Suggs was one of the few guys an argument could have actually been made for.
Well, at least my evening is free now, I suppose.
