night before christmas...superbowl

The past 6 seasons the NFL has been having their own annual Award Ceremonies the night before the SuperBowl.  This might be quite a distraction when in the same 24 hour period you are finding out you're the NFL MVP and then have to go out there and play in the biggest game of your life. 

The stats show these awards seem to be consolation prizes for all the teams that didn't win the Superbowl.   The MVPs are 0-2, Cam Newton last year and Peyton Manning 2013. 

This year, Matt Ryan got MVP and the Falcons have a record setting 6 awards to collect.....if the Patriots win today, then it will be the 3rd time awards went to nobody but losers as the winning team didn't collect any awards, but instead collecting the Vince Lombardy Trophy by winning the Super Bowl. 






1st:  In 2011, 0 winners as Giants beat Patriots 21-17
No Award for either team in this contest. 

2nd: in 2012, 2 Winners as Ravens beat 49ers 34-31
         Ray Rice Play of the Year
       Torrey Smith Never Say Never Moment of the Year    
                Losing team:
    "Greatness on the Road" Award     Colin Kaepernick

3rd:  in 2013, 0 winners as Seahawks beat Broncos 43-8
          Losing team:
              Manning was MVP of the year! and Offensive Player of the Year! and Air Player of the Year!

4th:  in 2014, 1 winner as Patriots beat Seahawks 28-24
                       Comeback Player of the Year     Rob Gronkowski

5th: in 2015, 1 Winner as Broncos beat Panthers 24-10
     Assistant Coach of the Year     Wade Phillips
                 Losing Team:
Cam Newton got MVP! and Offensive player of the year!  
Ron Rivera got coach of the year!

6th:  in 2016, How many winners will there be?  If the Falcons win:  6!!! in the Patriots win: 0

Salute to Service Award     Dan Quinn     HC     Atlanta Falcons     [4]
Deacon Jones Award     Vic Beasley Jr.     LB     Atlanta Falcons
FedEx Air Player of the Year     Matt Ryan  Atlanta Falcons
AP MVP     Matt Ryan     QB     Atlanta Falcons     [2]
AP Assistant Coach of the Year     Kyle Shanahan     OC     Atlanta Falcons     [2]
AP Offensive Player of the Year     Matt Ryan     QB     Atlanta Falcons



C. Newton  last year
    265 yards throwing, 45 yards rushing.  0 TDs and 3 Turnovers (1 pick 2 fumbles)

Peyton Manning a few years ago    280 yards throwing with 1 TD and 3 Turnovers (2 picks 1 Fumble)

Combined, when being awarded MVP and playing in the superbowl on the same day, the teams are 0-2, and the MVP, both Quarterbacks, have a combined 1 Touchdown and 6 Turnovers.

Remember, before this award show the MVP was announced way earlier than the same day as the superbowl.  I believe it was right after the season ended during or after the Wild Card playoffs.

Yeah, (I agree) and I don't get why the NFL started doing that. If I was the guy getting the award I'd tell them to wait. Giving you an award (as if you have won) before the biggest game of your life. Must be a lot of mixed emotions. You want to enjoy it and celebrate it with friends and family, and feel proud, but you really can't. Not only that, now you have to go out there the next day (while it is all fresh on everyone's mind, including your opponents) and prove you have earned it.

Regardless of what happens today, I think Ryan will be ready. I'm not saying he wins but he'll be ready. He beat Russ, he beat the "GOAT"(Rodgers) and now he goes up against the GOAT BRADY. If you can't get ready for this game, you shouldn't be playing. I mean did anybody think Ryan wouldn't get the MVP? I don't think this is news to anyone. 

Two great qbs going to head to head. If falcons win tonite, Ryan will have beaten three super bowl qbs in the same playoffs and won an MVP. I wonder if people will finally give him the respect he already deserves. I find it ridiculous and disgusting this whole year, including the playoffs, Ryan has gotten the backseat to other qbs in this league. when people make the comparison to last years panthers and cam newton, these two teams are so different. Cam, was a look at me, selfish scam that played with a team that took team photos on the sidelines during the NFC championship game (real classy). The falcons, they go about heir business and are led by a good guy who is respected by all in this game. Big difference.

It was reported on FOX that Ryan was informed of his MVP last week but was told to keep it to himself.
