These kinds of accolades usually precede a fall off in performance for executives in other businesses. I don't know if that happens in the NFL but at least we don't have to find out the hard way. Being the best is better than being named the best.



Love it!

Sorry Blueandgreen I disagree. ROY decision could rightfully favor any one of the three QB's. But executive? No way. Schneider should've won hands down.


To be fair the Colts GM made massive additions to the roster. 6 of their draft picks played very significant roles in their offense. The had rookie QB, RB, 2-TE's, 2-WR's. Pretty good haul.

Though I think it's hard to overlook 1) OROY candidate Russell Wilson (Best value in the entire draft), 2) DROY candidate Bobby Wagner, 3) Rookie Sack leader Bruce Irvin.

Than you add in Turbin, Guy (at end of year), Sweezy, Scruggs, and Lane and I think you have the most complete draft in the league in terms of contributors.

All I hear Re: Luck's ROY candidacy is how he has NO DEFENSE, NO RUN GAME, NO OFFENSIVE WEAPONS, and HAS TO DO IT ALL ON HIS OWN. So, which is it? Did the golden boy carry a terribly assembled roster on his back or did their GM surround him with good-enough talent by replacing half the roster?

Can't have it both ways.

That really is an excellent point.

Kudos on pointing out the doublethink.

Colts GM wins.

Of course he would, he took a team that purposely tanked a Season so the Colts would get Andrew Luck to replace FHOF P. Manning, so nothing the bullsh*t folks do anymore, surprises me in the least. :pukeface:
:141847_bnono: Isn't it miraculous how the Colts turned it all around in just one Season? :141847_bnono: :pukeface:

Here is the biggest irony of it all to me.

Luck for Rookie of the Year argument -- he did it all himself. Didn't have any help. Such a great rookie - just crap around him rookies etc. RG3 and RW had much better personnel around him

Ryan Grigson - Executive of the Year argument - Assembled such a great team. Managed to move so many pieces into one place and it wasn't about making the obvious number one pick it was about all those other great pieces coming together.......


EDIT: Nevermind just saw that DavidSeven beat me to it and I agree!!!

Congratulations to the Colts GM for having the guts to make the most obvious move in the last 20 years of football.


Take over for a team that gave up midway through last season in order to secure the draft status.. they tanked the season last year so the cupboard was not nearly as bare as many thought..

If you owned an NFL team and needed a GM, whowould you hire?

Why would you give an award for being Pete's lackey?

The award for best guy to pick up Pete's dry cleaning, draft players Pete tells him to draft, sharpen Pete's pencils, Pick out flowers and a nice romantic card and some chocolates and sign Pete's name to the card and make dinner reservations for Pete's wife's birthday, oh and get her something sexy like some panties or something, I don't know what size she is, Jesus John should I get Idzik to do it.

Lol are you implying JS is just a glorified, overachieving secretary? If that's the case, then secretaries are criminally undervalued in the eyes of the media.

Grigson getting the award, I can at least understand.

But Elway finishing second to Schneider's distant third is too ridiculous for words. At least for words I can post here.

Yeah, really tough to win with Peyton Manning, what a tough choice for Elway. And the Colts were so smart to pick that Luck guy, wow, what an amazing front office they have :roll:

He should just hand the trophy to Andrew Luck.
