Welcome to the tenth annual Football Outsiders Awards. (Yes, that's right, ten. As of July 30, Football Outsiders will have been on the Internets for ten whole years.) Readers get to have their say in categories both conventional -- like MVP or Rookie of the Year -- and unconventional. We've got the Keep Choppin' Wood award for the worst player of the year, awards for most overrated and underrated players, and of course the "John Mellencamp Must Die" Award for most annoying commercial.
Three important notes:
1) Please refrain from writing things like "I don't know" or joke answers like retired players. If you don't want to answer a question, leave it blank.
2) If you enter two names in any of the open questions EXCEPT for best offensive lineman (which has two spaces, of course) then we will not count your answer. We also do not count answers for "any player on Team X" or some such thing.
3) Only ballots with at least half of the questions answered will be counted in this year's awards.
After the awards questions, we have some questions to ask you that will help guide our big back-end site upgrade this offseason. Don't worry, a lot of the most-requested changes are already on the docket, even though they don't appear in the questions below. We'll be streamlining the store, speeding up loading of the site, and hopefully (no guarantees) adding auto-refresh to comments.
