The fine football writers here at SBNation got together and, through the miracle of e-mail, voted on who they think the mid-season award winners in the NFL are to this point of the 2006 season. The results? I'm glad you asked. . .they're right here!
Big ups to BigBlueShoe at Stampede Blue for setting all of this up.
So, without further ado, here are the SB Nation NFL Mid-Season Awards:
Offensive Player: Peyton Manning, QB Colts
Defensive Player: Champ Bailey, CB Broncos
Coach: Sean Payton, Saints
Rookie: Marques Colston, WR Saints*
* - Some people call him Maurrrrrrrrrrrrice. . .woo-woo!
Worst Coach: Tie between Dennis Green (Arizona Cardinals) and Nick Saban (Miami Dolphins)
Worst Rookie: Reggie Bush, RB Saints. Somewhere, Stewart Scott at ESPN is crying.
Some funny nuggets from the SB Nation writers as they turned in their ballots:

That concludes the 2006 Mid-Season awards. We'll do a 2006 Season Awards when the regular season concludes.
