    The play of the year should be something that sums up the season, like one of the times we had the ball driving to win a game, and Dorian Baker drops the winning TD in the end zone.

      Do you think Dorian drops the soap in the shower after every game?

    Well, that’s awfully depressing, but I agree with Jared’s special team choice. Nowhere to go but up! Go Cats!

    Whilst the “NONE” for special teams is appealing, I think you have to go with Joey Herrick. He was in on almost every tackle on special teams.

    Underappreciated player? Patrick Towles? Really? He deserved all the crap he took from the general public. Yes at times protection broke down but at the same time when it held up he was highly inaccurate and missed his receivers by a lot. Give it to the kicker. He’s the only one to put up points consistently.
