I stole this idea from the Mane. :D

Most Improved Player
Kawika Mitchell. This is obviously a no-brainer.

Offensive MVP
Trent Green. Hasn't had the protection of years past. Still only has 3 interceptions and a completion percentage over 60.

Defensive MVP
Jared Allen. Almost single-handedly won the Washington game. Avoiding the curse of the sophomore slump.

Biggest Surprise
Dewayne Washington. Dexter who? Stepped up huge in the 2nd Oakland game.

Biggest Flop
Samie Parker. Still has potential, but he was being counted on as a starter coming into the year. Horn and Hall have played better.

Rookie of the Half-Year
Derrick Johnson. No-brainer. Would like to see him get his hands on a couple INTs.


Brilliant Moment
LJ's game-winning dive against the Raiders. No contest. Maybe the biggest play of the Vermeil era.

Biggest Goof
Allowing the Eagles to come back from 17-0 and 24-6 deficits at Arrowhead. Disgusting. This game might haunt us.

Team MVP
Lawrence Tynes. An admitted homer pick, but he IS our leading scorer. :D

My biggest suprise would probably be Tynes. He has gone from choke to clutch. if biggest suprise doesn't have to be a player, I would say our poor O-line play has been pretty suprising.

Biggest disappointment would be Bell. Parker never did anything to give me high hopes to begin with. I actually expected Bell to be productive if he stayed healthy.

Part of that is a coaching decision on how he is being used. In The 'Burgh, he was known as a pass rusher. In KC, he's on the sideline in 3rd situations.

Agreed. I keep saying to myself WTF is Gun thinking having Bell out in coverage? He should be blitzing the QB.....a lot.

GC, I would agree with most of your list. I don't know that I would call Parker the biggest flop, though. That would have to be either the offensive line (injuries have hurt them but even some of the starters have had some bad games) or Bell (as pointed out above, some of that isn't his fault). And Tynes has been money, no doubt, but I would hardly give him MVP. That would probably have to go to Trent Green.

I would give Tynes the MVP simply because no member of this team was under more intense pressure coming out of training camp than Tynes.

Briillant Moment...
LJ ??
Give credit for team/coaches admiting they can get it
and allowed to GO FOR IT. everyone executed perfectly.
The Dive was a team thing.

Flop
Parker??? agree with JSPchief
Bell but that could be coaching and lack of seriously playing to his blitz strength. for whatever reason now.


Everything else is spot on....

I agree with most of these, except Sammy Knight gets my MVP. Although statistically the defense may not be much better, they have stepped up when they needed to, something they didn't do last year. I think this has a lot to do with Knight's leadership. Has anyone else noticed how the defensive guys look to him for approval after a nice stop?

I'd like to add one to list

Biggest Secret Weapon -- Kris Wilson -- after 8 games Wilson is still a "secret". I'm sure not one of 8 teams we faced even knows he's a weapon.
