Post-Week 2 Favorites for Every Major NFL Award

Last week we came out with the first installment of this weekly presentation, which was created to gauge how the major NFL award races are taking shape on a weekly basis as we progress through the 2012 season. 

Based on the feedback from Week 1, some people had trouble understanding the concept in place here. Rather than focus on the perennial or preseason favorites for every major award, and how those players are performing, we instead are turning our attention to who are the "actual best performers" around the NFL as opposed to who are the most popular players based on reputation. 

We expect that the names will continue to shift and change as we go through this exercise every week. For the names that continue to surface every week, we can only hope or trust that they will be receiving votes at the end of the year from the various voters who are in charge of rewarding the players for their efforts. 

It would be foolish to suggest that any player being mentioned after two weeks will win the award, and that isn't what we are suggesting. We are merely stating that after two weeks, these are the players that are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the pack and should be earning some consideration for their play to date. 

While some readers commented last week about "Over-Reaction Monday," the fact remains that we are focused on reacting to the performances on the field and giving credit where it is due. Nothing more and nothing less.
