Patriots Mid-Season Awards

untitled-15

The Patriots have reached the 2nd half of the season, which is awesome because they have a winning record, but sad because that means the season is getting closer to the end. The Patriots are about to begin their stretch of tough games starting with the Colts, but first let’s give out some mid-season awards.

The Offensive MVP through the first half of the season is QB Tom Brady. Easy choice, he’s also the leading choice for NFL MVP if you ask me and Gronk deserves consideration for this award as well because he’s been a beast recently, but it’s Brady. Brady won a few games while his OL was struggling and while LaFell was still finding his place on the offense and while Gronk was still getting healthy. He was also winning when the defense was still getting their legs underneath them. He’s a winner. The OL began to play better, but still have breakdowns, but Brady has helped them out a lot. He worked on his mobility in the pocket and throwing on the run, now he does it a few times a game. It helps the OL out big time and because he does that, the entire team has benefited from it. Brady is the engine that keeps the Patriots machine going, without him they would not be winning.

The Defensive MVP through the first half of the season is CB Darrelle Revis. This was a little hard because Revis is the choice but Dont’a Hightower deserved high consideration for this award, especially since he’s taking over for Mayo in a big way. Browner is in the running for the 2nd half of the season. Revis is the best corner on the team and maybe in the entire league. Manning threw it 59 times against the Patriots and only targeted Revis 6 times. He’s a great player and with him shutting down the best receivers, it gives the Pats breathing room in the other areas. It opens their game plan up more on defense. Without Revis the Pats would NOT have the best pass defense in the NFL.

The Special Teams MVP through the first half of the season is Kicker Stephen Gostowski. Gostowski has made 24/25 field goals this season and 10 from 40+ yards. He’s made one from 50+ yards. He has made 29/29 extra points. He’s a great kicker with a big leg and he’s clutch.

Rookie of the Mid-Season award goes to OL Bryan Stork. The Rookie center is a great player for the Patriots. When the Pats started him at center it allowed them to have Wendell at RG and Connolly at LG with Vollmer and Solder at the tackle spot, which instantly made the line better. They improved with Stork and the veteran lineup around him. The center was a struggle spot for the Pats through the first 5 games, but then Stork starts and it’s one of their strengths. He’s one of the best rookie OL this season and one of the better centers. Can’t tell you how much he has meant to the OL and Tom Brady this year, so rookie MVP is Stork by a mile.
