Packer Party

The Green Bay Packers are my pick to win Super Bowl XLV.  After losing a wild back-and-forth affair in the NFC Wild Card game last season in Arizona, the Packers will clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs—thanks to a better conference record than the defending champion New Orleans Saints—and best the Ravens, 28-24, in Dallas to claim their fourth Lombardi Trophy (and first in 14 seasons).  Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings—he of the nine catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns in the big game—will eke out signal caller Aaron Rodgers for the Super Bowl MVP.  His predecessor roaming the frozen tundra will not be as fortunate in the 2010 National Football League season.  Not only will his consecutive games streak end, but his injured ankle will also result in the Minnesota Vikings losing out on the final playoff spot to the New York (football) Giants.  All is not lost—at least his career won’t end with an interception!  Without further ado . . .

The Awards Go To . . .

MVP: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers

Offensive Player of the Year: Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans

Defensive Player of the Year: Darrelle Revis, CB, New York J-E-T-S

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Jahvid Best, RB, Detroit Lions

Defensive Rookie of the Year: Ndamukong Suh, DL, Detroit Lions

Comeback Player of the Year: Wes Welker, WR, New England Patriots

Coach of the Year: Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers

And what prognostication piece would be complete without my bold (and uncannily accurate) team-by-team predictionsfor the upcoming campaign?
