The NFL is putting on the 3rd Annual NFL Honors special the night before the Super Bowl in "the super bowl city", which I assume is New York City instead of East Rutherford. Does anyone know if Peyton will be attending? I prefer he not but the NFL will probably pressure him to do so somehow.
Here is the article on it from www.nfl.com.
I love the idea of this event since there was zero fanfare for past award winners. Obviously there is zero suspense about the awards Peyton will win. Here are a list of all of the awards with the ones Peyton should win hands down bolded.
" AP Most Valuable Player presented by Papa John's
" Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year
" AP Coach of the Year presented by Lenovo
" AP Comeback Player of the Year presented by Castrol EDGE
" AP Offensive Player of the Year presented by XBOX One
" AP Defensive Player of the Year presented by Surface
" AP Offensive Rookie of the Year presented by Pepsi NEXT
" AP Defensive Rookie of the Year presented by Pepsi NEXT
" Pepsi NEXT Rookie of the Year
" FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Year
" GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year

" NFL.com Fantasy Player of the Year presented by SAP

I don't think any other Broncos are up for any of these awards. It's a shame they don't have an offensive line of the year award because that is the only position that really has no chance of winning any of these awards.
