Mid-season MVP - DeAngelo Hall
Hall may be having the best season of his career. Not from an interception standpoint, but he consistently guards the opposing team’s top receiver, and has done an outstanding job so far providing leadership for the Washington Redskins.
Mid-season – Top Defensive Player - Brian Orakpo
Orakpo may not be tearing up the league with his sack numbers, but he has shown that he has developed into a complete linebacker, as he’s gotten better in coverage and also against the run.
Mid-season – Top Offensive Player - Alfred Morris
Morris hasn’t had the number of carries that he’s had last season thanks to the Redskins being behind late in games. But he is still emerging as one of the top running backs in the NFL and is averaging over 5 yards a carry.
Mid-season – Top Special Teams Player – Delayed until after the season
Sorry, but the way the special teams have played so far this season, I can’t give out an award just yet. However, as the they improve, I expect to give out this award at the end of the season.
Mid- Season – Top Offensive Rookie - Jordan Reed
The Third Round draft pick has taken the league by storm, as he has become one of Robert Griffin III’s most consistent targets on offense with 38 receptions for 425 yards at the mid-way point this season.
Mid-season – Top Defensive Rookie - David Amerson
As the season has progressed, rookie cornerback David Amerson has gotten better and better. With two interceptions on the year including a pick six. Amerson’s impact will be felt for the remainder of the season.
Mid-season – Top Comeback Player - Robert Griffin III
Griffin started the season slow coming off a torn ACL last season. But as the season moves forward, he gets better and better, and the best may be yet to come in the second half of the season.
Mid-season – Top Receiver - Pierre Garcon
Garcon has made several highlight reel catches on the season, and had his best game so far against the Chargers with 7 receptions for 172 yards. Garcon is on pace for over 100 catches on the year.
Mid-season – Top Offensive Linemen - Trent Williams
Williams has emerged as a perennial all-pro, and he’s only given up one sack so far this season.
Mid-season – Top Defensive Linemen - Barry Cofield
Cofield had become one of the top nose tackles in the NFL, and is not only good against the run, but has emerged as a pass rusher too.
