This thread will be filled with homers all praising their guy. I'm not different, except my guy actually is the best guy.
^ Kirk Cousins proved he's not that valuable. Missing 2 games hurts. But I'll give you this, if they win tomorrow I do think he'll win.

He said he wasn't different...
Im a vikes fan so I get i'm biased but its gotta be Harrison Smith. To come in as a rookie and be as effective as he has been at the safety position is pretty unbelieveable. Im not saying its unheard of but its definitely a rarity. The vikes were a 3-13 team last season and they are knocking on the door of playoffs this season and the defense has been a huge part of that and the secondary in praticular.
]Goaltending is a normal job, sure. How would you like it in your job if every time you made a small mistake, a red light went on over your desk and 15,000 people stood up and yelled at you.
As a Vikes fan I'm definitely biased for Harrison Smith, who has been huge for us this season.
As for Kuechly, I thought number of tackles was meaningless? At least that's the only reason I can think of as for why Chad Greenway is never even mentioned amongst the top OLB in the league... but seriously, I think with Kuechly or Smith would be a solid choice.
I know he won't/can't be acknowledged in the rookie of the year awards as he's a kicker, but I also wanted to mention Blair Walsh. He's had a huge rookie year, breaking records, going to the Pro bowl and with a real shot at being all-pro. That's a great rookie year, no doubt.
Luke is leading the league in tackles right? He's got my vote.
RGIII, Wilson, Luck, I don't care who wins it.
RGIII for offensive.
No idea for the defensive award. Multiple guys deserving although one person I don't see getting much attention for the award is Janoris Jenkins. Shame really.
Harrison Smith (love this guy and he was the one player I wanted the Packers to draft)
Casey Hayward (Hasn't given up a touchdown, 6 picks)
