After eight of the most entertaining weeks of NFL Football that we’ve ever seen, we’re going to use some of the most entertaining Nintendo games of all time to help us hand out some mid-season awards. We’re very sorry that we couldn’t fit RBI Baseball into this, we know it belongs.
We’ve heard lots of cliches for big and small back tandems, but this one that we heard for White and Johnson is our favorite: The Meat and The Sauce.
These two really deserve the award. After Orlovsky’s safety dance, and a combined zero wins, there really wasn’t another choice.
Honorable Mention: Brodie Croyle, Damon Huard, and Tyler Thigpen
Punch Out Award – Best Knockout
Winner: Eric Smith’s hit on Anquan Boldin
Although Smith was fined on the play, we didn’t feel like it was dirty. What it was, was a huge freaking hit.
Honorable Mention: Steve Smith
An incredible comeback by the Colts, capped by one of the sickest catches ever, courtesy of Reggie Wayne and Peyton Manning.
Honorable Mention: Arizona Cardinals overtime victory over the Cowboys
Kid Icarus Award – Flew Too High in Preseason Rankings
Winner: Houston Texans
Many “experts”, including Fox Sports, ESPN, and yours truly all picked the Texans to make the playoffs. Our bad.
Honorable Mention: San Diego Chargers
Games of 220, 104, and 121 yards followed by games of 42, 56, and 54 yards respectively.
Honorable Mention: Wildcat Offense
Kurt Warner has been through a lot of highs and lows during his career. Each day, he continues to work hard and exhibit a team-first attitude that has helped the Cardinals start the year out at 4-3.
Honorable Mention: Kerry Collins
