Hey everybody. Almost time for those FO reader awards, and I've got a bit of a problem this year. Well, two problems, and I was hoping you could all help out.
First, I didn't do a very good job keeping track of the best and worst commercials broadcast regularly during NFL games this season for our "best and worst commercials" categories. So I'm opening up the floor to nominations here. I'll go through this thread and figure out which commercials to put in the balloting.
In addition, I generally try not to nominate more than one player from the same team for things like Offensive or Defensive MVP, because I don't want fans from a specific team to have their votes split. So I would like to hear readers' opinion. Who should be the nominee for Defensive MVP from Seattle: Earl Thomas or Richard Sherman? And who should be the nominee for Defensive MVP from Kansas City: Dontari Poe, Justin Houston, or Eric Berry?
Don't gum up the thread with your other Defensive MVP ideas, or other award ideas. I know who else is getting nominated for Defensive MVP and for awards in general. I don't need ten comments reminding me to let people vote for Robert Quinn. Thanks!

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
