A great week at PFT Live gets even better Friday when Florio welcomes John Madden to the show.
While we wait for that appearance, we can pass along a bit of Madden-related news. The Patriots offensive line won the second annual Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award by Prilosec.
While the award is sponsored, we like the notion of officially recognizing line play. The NFL should seriously consider a similar award; we suspect it’d mean a lot to the linemen and it would make a nice antidote to fantasy football’s emphasis on skill position players. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
The Patriots continue to rack up postseason awards after their surprising 14-2 season. That probably doesn’t make fans in New England feel much better.
