Predicting Award Winners for the Detroit Lions' 2012 Season

The Detroit Lions have, over time, become accustomed to being shut out when awards are handed out.

After all, 3-13 teams don't tend to produce a lot of MVP candidates.

That trend is starting to flip, but it's a slow process.

Even though Matthew Stafford has been credited with two Comeback Player of the Year honors (one from the AP and one, more recently, at the ESPYs), he was still considered the sixth-best quarterback in the NFC in terms of Pro Bowl votes.

Ndamukong Suh won the Rookie of the Year award in 2010, but just one year later he is being voted among the most hated and overrated players in the league.

So maybe regular, positive public recognition is still a ways off for these Lions, but that's just fine. We're perfectly capable of picking our own MVPs and ROYs.

And so we will.

Here are my Lions-based picks for all the awards you're accustomed to seeing at the end of the season (and a few you aren't).
