Here are the Winners for the 2013 Fan on Fire Pro Football Awards
Instead of Putting together an “All” Team like a lot people do every year, last year I decided to put together my own awards list. Not necessarily awarding the best statistically in any given position, but awards that matter to me, and maybe to some of you.
Today I publish the list of Award Winners as chosen by poll by the fans.
Some may ask why? But I ask why not? So here are the Winners for the second annual 2013 Fan on Fire – Pro Football Awards.
The “Don’t You know Who I am? – Diva” of the Year: No, this award does not go to the top women’s wrestler, it goes to the most petulant, tempestuous, out of control player of the year.
Winner: Ndamukong Suh – Detroit Lions
“Highlight Hero” of the year: Goes to the top offensive player who provided to best highlight reel footage of the year.
Winner: Robert Griffin III, QB – Washington Redskins

Winner: Calvin Johnson, WR – Detroit Lions
The “REAL” Coach of the year Award: Typically this award goes to the coach who over achieved the most, or the coach whose team dominated the league. But this award goes to the Coach who actually did the best coaching job this season.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR
The “FAN ON FIRE” Football Player of the Year: Goes to the player who had the hottest performance throughout the season.
Winner: Adrian Peterson, RB – Minnesota Vikings
AND THE MOST COVETED AWARD OF ALL:
The “Fans on Fire” – Fan base of the Year Award: Goes to the most dedicated and “FIRED” up Fan Base in the NFL.
- Colts Nation – Indianapolis Colts
- Cowboys Nation – Dallas Cowboys
- Seahawks Nation – Seattle Seahawks
Winner: Seahawks Nation – Seattle Seahawks: The home field advantage that the 12th Man gives the team is one of the things that will ensure the Seahawks will be a contender moving forward. The raucous environment in CenturyLink Field has an obvious effect on the visiting team, ans i feel this makes the Seahawks fans the most fired up in the NFL.
See Ya Next Year!
