Since some of this year's major award winners have been known for some time (*cough*PeytonManning*cough*), let's take a look ahead at who could be bringing home the hardware in 2014.
Understand, there's a lot to be decided between now and some of these projections reaching fulfillment, and I'm not pretending to be Miss Cleo over here. I'll do my best to describe to you what conditions each of these players should win under, but by all means I'm sure your favorite player has a chance as well.
Let's not rule anybody out just yet.
That said, there's definitely some rhyme and reason to who wins what awards every year, and that's because these are awards voted on by media, fans, players, etc. Those people operate in pretty predictable patterns, and it's usually not much of a surprise what type of player they pick. Like: We're probably not going to see an offensive lineman win an MVP award anytime soon.
