By Bill Williamson's standard the Chiefs were the most well rounded franchise in the AFC West division. Over on ESPN's AFC West blog, Bill Williamson has broken down his year end awards for the AFC West. The Chiefs came home with a lot of "hardware," bringing home AFC West accolades
- MVP (RB, Jamaal Charles)
- Defensive Player of the Year (OLB, Tamba Hali)
- Offensive Rookie of the Year (TE, Tony Moeaki)
- Defensive Rookie of the Year (S, Eric Berry)
- Coach of the Year (HC, Todd Haley)
- and Executive of the Year (GM, Scott Pioli)
While being praised for being the standard of the AFC West is good and fun, it's what I found in the comment section that was the best part of the page. Commenters started giving out "their awards," which ranged anywhere from "Least Valuable Player" to "Biggest Loss to a Team." After the jump I'll give you my choices for "The NaNzys"Biggest Face Palm: Josh McDaniels
Three years removed from SpyGate, Josh McDaniels was at it again. McDaniels made like Disney in creating a unexciting, less attractive, "SpyGate II," which if not for the original, would have gone totally unnoticed. The biggest reason Josh McDaniels wins the award is because this scandal was in an attempt to beat. THE 49ERS!.. Lets ignore the fact that the Broncos still lost the game, anyone who needed to cheat to beat the Mike Singletary lead 49ers wins this award once the "record button" was hit.
Gunshow Award: Thomas Jones
This almost went to Tim Tebow, but I was afraid Thomas Jones' guns would swim across the Pacific Ocean and eat me in my sleep if it did. In a hieght to arm width measurement, Jones' bicepts ran away with this one ( and were stopped three yards later).
Dead Horse Award: Tim Tebow
Pun not intended. There was no subject in the AFC West as dead as Tim Tebow belonging on the field despite the fact that Kyle Orton was staring down a record season. It's just a good thing Mile High Report doesn't get the same kind of traffic Arrowhead Pride does, otherwise all of SB Nation would have crashed.
Alright AP. Give me your best awards.
