NFL |  Our Mid-Season Honor Roll

NFL | Our Mid-Season Honor Roll

Time flies when you’re having fun and the proof is that there are already 9 of the 18 weeks of the season behind us in the NFL. Now is a good time to take a look at the various races for individual honours. If the season ended this morning, our honor roll would be next.

Most Outstanding Player

Tua Tagovailoa (Dolphins)

This honor should be renamed “best quarterback”, as we know. Until last Sunday, my choice would have been Josh Allen, but he now has eight interceptions since his underperformance against the Jets, and that’s a bit too much for an MVP. That said, Allen remains a valid candidate, as do Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and two quarterbacks who caused upsets in the first half, Geno Smith and Jalen Hurts. As with the latter two, Tua Tagovailoa was not expected to shine like he did. He won six of his seven starts; his efficiency coefficient of 115.9 is the best in the league; he completed 69.9% of his passes and threw 15 touchdown passes. Tua also had just three interceptions and eight sacks.

Best Offensive Player

Tyreek Hill (Dolphins)

Tyreek Hill (10)

Derrick Henry and Nick Chubb are dragging their respective teams behind them, but Hill has shown he’s been able to transform an offense since joining the Dolphins. The former Chiefs already has 1,104 yards on the clock, 237 more than Justin Jefferson, who is second. Jefferson, however, played one less game. Hill is also first with 19 aerial plays for 20 or more yards, 5 more than Jefferson, who is also second.

Best Defensive Player

Micah Parsons (Cowboys)

Micah Parsons

Players like Matthew Judon, who leads the league with 11.5 sacks, Roquan Smith, who was already having a strong season before being traded to the Ravens, and Nick Bosa are in the running, but for now it’s Parsons who holds the lead. He has transformed the Cowboys’ defense for a season and a half and his impact is comparable to that of Aaron Donald and TJ Watt, considered the two best defensive players in the league.

The comeback of the year

Geno Smith (Seahawks)

Geno Smith

The easiest choice, in my opinion. Excellent since the start of the season, Smith has not returned from a serious injury, unlike most players who win this honor. But he hadn’t been a starting quarterback in almost a decade. A beautiful story and an example of perseverance, it goes without saying.

Head Coach of the Year

Nick Sirianni (Eagles)

Nick Sirianni

The team with the best record in the league deserves at least one representative on the honor roll, so why not the man who leads that success? Since Sirianni led them, the Eagles have exceeded expectations and are currently the best team in the National. Sirianni seems at the beginning of a long and beautiful career.

The best offensive rookie

Dameon Pierce (Texans)

Dameon Pierce

We seem to be heading for a race between two running backs for this title, in this case Pierce and Kenneth Walker III. Another Jets running back, Breece Hall, was part of the conversation before he tore a ligament in his knee a few weeks ago. Pierce (678) has gained more yards than Walker III (570), but his yards-per-carry average (4.6) is lower than the Seahawks running back (5.1). Because he is much less well surrounded than Walker III, Pierce is our choice.

The best defensive rookie

Tariq Woolen (Seahawks)

Tariq Woolen (27)

The similarities between Woolen and another cornerback who played for the Seahawks are striking. Like Richard Sherman, Woolen is a former tall (6’4″) wide receiver who was drafted to the 5e tour and who contributes very early in his career. Woolen has already had four interceptions and recovered two fumbles. With Walker III and Woolen, the Seahawks have two of the best rookies in the league, but it doesn’t stop there. Their two starting tackles are also first-year players. Charles Cross (left side) and Abraham Lucas (right) were selected in the first and third rounds. The kind of harvest that transforms a team.

The biggest surprise

The Jets

We certainly didn’t expect such a great season from the Seahawks, but Pete Carroll and Brian Schneider know how to win. Their success is therefore less surprising than that of the two Big Apple teams. Giants or Jets? Because they just surprised the powerful Bills, let’s give the advantage to the Jets.

The biggest disappointment

The Raiders

There’s no shortage of options here. The Buccaneers, the Rams, the Colts, the Steelers, the Broncos… But what about the Raiders? After their appearance in the playoffs in 2021 and their acquisitions of Davante Adams, Chandler Jones and Josh McDaniels, we expected significantly better from them. Did the Raiders make a mistake by thanking Rich Bisaccia, who had saved their season as interim head coach after the departure of Jon Gruden? One thing is certain, McDaniels has still not demonstrated that he can be a good pilot.

Three games to watch

Minnesota at Buffalo Sunday, 1 p.m.

The Minnesota Vikings are 7-1 this season.

The Bills have received good news in the case of Josh Allen, whose right elbow injury is not believed to be so serious. The presence of the quarterback, however, remained uncertain at the time of this writing on Sunday. If Allen misses the game, Case Keenum will get the start against the team he had the most success with in the NFL. The Vikings are probably the least talked about 7-1 team in NFL history… That’s partly because they’ve only defeated one team with a winning record in their current six-game winning streak. They will have the opportunity to prove that they deserve to be considered a top team on Sunday.

Dallas at Green Bay Sunday, 4:25 p.m.

Aaron Rodgers (12) of the Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers has a new post almost every week. That now is not the time to panic and that Packers fans should breathe through their noses. That it’s a good thing to face the Bills because no one will give them a chance to win (with good reason). This time it’s because everyone buried them because of their 3-6 record and five-game losing streak. And if they can’t find a way to surprise the Cowboys, it will indeed be time to put a cross on them. In the camp of the Cowboys, there is more and more question of the possible arrival of Odell Beckham son. Adding the receiver — if he’s cured and can actually contribute — might allow the Cowboys to heat up the Eagles. Because if they don’t finish first in the National East, they will most likely have to beat three good teams abroad in January in order to reach their first Super Bowl in 27 years. Very heavy order.

Los Angeles Chargers at San Francisco Sunday, 8:20 p.m.

Deebo Samuel (19) of the San Francisco 49ers

Their play doesn’t inspire confidence, but the Chargers are still 5-3 despite having one of the longest injured lists in the league. Keenan Allen hardly played. The club’s other “big” receiver, Mike Williams, will probably miss several more games. Joey Bosa suffered a long-term injury, too, while JC Jackson, Austin Johnson and Rashawn Slater won’t play again in 2022. In his sophomore season, Slater was on pace to unseat Trent Williams at the top of the tackle hierarchy at left of the league. The 49ers will be able to count on the return to play of Deebo Samuel and Kyle Juszczyk, the best centerback in the league and the player with the most difficult name to spell. Provided they avoid serious injuries, the Niners should live a second half of the season in crescendo.
