Off-topic. Back to the EOTY deal. It was voted on by NFL Front office and coaches, so among his peers, John Schneider wasn't deemed the best. Wasn't a fan vote or player vote but a vote among his peers. Now maybe they didn't vote him in due to their admiration for the whole Colts story or maybe because John and Pete are so counter-Conventional Wisdom?
Who knows? The other teams staffs could just not like a lot of things going on with this team and it is part of a grudge? As long as folks take into account who voted for EOTY when making their arguments then at least they know the lay of the field. Many assumed this was a writer's selected award. It was spelled out who votes for what on the Sporting News page
announcing the awards.
