I know its early, but this year the cream has really come to the top. I think there are only a handful of guys who can legitamtly compete for these awards this year as opposed to last year, where it was up in the air until the very end.

MVP: QB Drew Brees. Other Contenders: QB Peyton Manning, RB Adrian Peterson, QB Brett Favre, QB Matt Schaub.

Defensive MVP: DE Jared Allen Other Contenders: DE Dwight Freeney, OLB Elvis Dummerville, FS Darren Sharper, MLB London Fletcher-Baker.

Offensive Rookie of the Year: WR Percy Harvin Other Contenders: QB Mark Sanchez, WR Hakeem Nicks, WR Johnny Knox, OT Michael Oher(yes, he deserves consideration)

Defensive Rookie of the Year: OLB Brian Cushing Other Contenders: FS Jarius Byrd(he has not been getting enough criticism for all the blown coverages and his poor run defense), MLB James Laurnitus, OLB Rey Maualuga, OLB Aaron Curry

Coach of the Year: Marvin Lewis.

What do you guys think? Am I missing any contenders?

I wish I could say you were missing Tom Brady.

Edit: And Mark Sanchez should not be a contender. For anything.

Those are some good predictions especially ROY, I love Percy Harvin. I think Darren Sharper should win DPY though, even though I'm a die-hard Vikes fan.

OT Michael Oher(yes, he deserves consideration)heysharpshooter

Good call on Oher. He goes very overlooked because he doesn't play a glorified position.

And excluding his day against Buffalo, Sanchez's numbers aren't all that bad. He's been a stud the past two weeks.

If the Jags were a little better you'd have to consider Maurice Jones-Drew for the O-MVP award. The man single handedly keeps the Jags in the game and sometimes is the sole reason they win. If the Jags somehow contend down the stretch and perhaps steal the last Wildcard spot (unlikely, but you never know) then I think he should be considered.

You forgot Comeback Player of The Year. That award will easily go to Tom Brady if you ask me.

If Matt Schaub is getting nominated for MVP, then Ben should be included.

Thing is with Ben he was expected to make the Steelers good. Shaub was expected to not do much en route to another 7-9 type season for the Texans, so Shaub is playing lights out and the Texans look like a playoff team thus far.

playing better than you were expected does NOT make you mvp. playing as the best in the league does. and Ben would deserve it much more that schaub thus far

It kills me to say this but I bet Farve ends up with MVP,which should go to Peyton who is having a godly year with a lesser than normal colts team.

How do you figure Ben deserves it MUCH more than Schaub? I'm not seeing it.

Edit: And based on your criteria, Peyton Manning is by far the overwhelming choice for MVP.

Yea but Shaub is making the Texans a better team, he is the MOST VALUABLE PLAYER to his team, they lose Shaub they lose so many games. On the other hand i think the Steelers can suffice losing Ben for a bit, since their Defense is superb. MVP doesnt go to the best player it goes to the most valuable player and right now Shaub is more valuable than Ben. and he is playing better than Ben on top of that.

im not saying ben should get it, im just agreeing that if shaub is in the talks, so should ben. peyton, in my opinion, should easily get it at this point, however.

Yea i do not think Shaub should be the MVP but in the talks, and as long as the Steelers are winning and scoring 25+ like they seemingly do, Ben should also be in the talks, so you do have a point.

I don't think he will win it but I would say Kyle Orton should at least be a contender MVP cause he's doing just as good as every one else he may not have the most TD's but he only ha 1 Int that really didn't mean anything. Also Josh Mcdaniels for coach of the year

orton is #15 in total yards, #18 in td passes, #13 in completion percentage, and #12 in overall qb rating...so i dont see how he would really deserve to be a contender

MVP: Peyton Manning- This is the best he's been playing in his career. He's the overwhelming choice for MVP for me. Other worthy mentions: Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, Brett Favre

Offensive Player: Peyton Manning- See MVP comment. Other: Brees, AP, Phillip Rivers, Matt Schuab

Defensive Player: Elvis Dumervil- Has done a terrific job in rushing the passer and is a major reason why the Broncos defence has improved so much. Other: Jared Allen, Darren Sharper, Albert Haynesworth (the Skins D is actually good, and Haynesworth has distracted the O-Line and helped the rest of the D. See why the Titans D misses him so much?), Asomugha, Revis,

Offensive Rookie: Percy Harvin- Hasn't done anything stupid and has really helped add dimension to this Vikings offence. Other: Oher, Monero, Knox

Defensive Rookie: Brian Cushing- Hashelpled improve this Texans Defence vastly. Other: Byrd, ClayMatthews, Malauga, Laurinitis

Comeback Player: Carson Palmer- Hadto sit outfor most of last year due toinjury, and the Bengalsoffencewas 32 in the league last year. Now, he's really improved the offence and along with the good Bengals defence, turned them intoSuper Bowl contenders. Other: Cedric Benson, Tom Brady

Coach of the Year: Marvin Lewis- Him along with Defensive Co-ordinator Mike Zimmer have turned the Bengals defence from a laughing stock ofthe NFL to an underrated andhard working unitin the past two years (including last year, theyfinished 12th). Other: McDaniels, Payton

Most Improved: Cedric Benson- He's been so underratedin helping imrove the Bengals offence. He was shut down last year since defences stacked the box due to Fitzpatricks lolworthy arm. Now, this is a multi-dimensional unit that is great. If be doesn't hae a DUI, then the Bengals are a sleeper pick to win the Super Bowl (but below the Colts)

once again, matt schaub is mentioned and not ben(offensive player of the year)...MS only is first in total yards due to not having his bye yet. ben is less than 300 yds behind(2342 vs 2062). yards/game, ben has more than MS(294.6 vs 292.8) vs . ben has both the better completion percentage (70.4 vs 66.4) and qb rating (102.6 vs 100.5)
