In previous seasons, award prizes may seem trivial. After all, when you cannot go beyond the five-win plateau, there is little reason to price or celebration. It sounded more like a “lesser evil” situation. But with the Raiders compete for the first time in eight years; there are many thieves who deserve recognition for their efforts and contribution.
This was probably the most difficult decision among these prices. When Jacoby Ford has three return touchdowns and Sebastian Janikowski sets single-season scoring record, it can be a difficult choice. But how can we ignore the contributions”Cartwright on special teams? He plays in coverage and blocks on returns. Ford ran through some big blocks Paydirt par”’Cartwright and the Raiders did not give up any shot hit back thanks largely to the coverage deals with”’Cartwright. He blocked a punt in week five win over the Chargers that were recovered for a touchdown Raider. Heck, Rock even returned kicks. It was everywhere! He was the Raiders’ all-purpose special teams guru. And he played all the duties he had with the accuracy and enthusiasm. This cannot be underestimated and every coach in this league you would probably say they would like to have five guys like him in their team.
Nnamdi Asomugha is the type of player who is irreplaceable. This was proven when he was in a game and played limited minutes in the next because of injury. These two games were both losses eruption in Pittsburgh and Miami. The Raiders gave a combined 68 points in two games. Most passing yards and touchdowns have been waived through a mosaic of corners trying to take over the absence of Nnamdi / injury. I said then that the value of Asomugha to this team is often not fully realized until there is not. The Raiders will be hoping they can re-sign him so they will not learn this lesson the hard way.
I was half tempted not the name of the MVP team at all because the success of the season was so much a team effort. I went back and forth and even considered a couple of guys who have not been mentioned here. Cases can be made for the value of several players Raider. But that just goes to show you how the Raiders have played in various fields of the season. The beautiful game spread around the hero comes out of nowhere. Remember the slogan of this year was Raider? “The superior man.” They certainly live up to that motto.
