So, without further ado, here are the SB Nation NFL Mid-Season Awards:
Offensive Player: Peyton Manning, QB Colts
Defensive Player: Champ Bailey, CB Broncos
Coach: Sean Payton, Saints
Rookie: Marques Colston, WR Saints
Worst Coach: Tie between Dennis Green (Arizona Cardinals) and Nick Saban (Miami Dolphins)
Worst Rookie: Reggie Bush, RB Saints. Somewhere, Stuart Scott at ESPN is crying.
Some funny nuggets from the SB Nation writers as they turned in their ballots:

Though not a category, the best write-in stuff game from Gonzo at Daily Norseman:
That concludes the 2006 Mid-Season awards. We'll do a 2006 Season Awards when the regular season concludes.
Just so everyone knows, my votes were for:
MVP: Peyton Manning
OP: Peyton Manning
DP: Aaron Kampman
Coach: Lovie Smith
Rookie: Marques Colston
WP: Edgerrin James
WC: Mike McCarthy
WR: Reggie Bush (Take that, hype machine!)
What would your votes be, guys?
