In recent years, we’ve handed out the PFT postseason awards right after the regular-season ended, partially in the hopes of influencing some of the Associated Press voters who primarily cover only one team and tangentially keep an eye on the rest of the teams within that team’s division.
But since the AP awards are now kept under wraps until the night before the Super Bowl, by which time everyone has stopped caring about who won them, we don’t care about influencing awards that are kept under wraps for far too long. So we’re going to release our awards a bit more slowly.
Here’s the one-per-day schedule for the official PFT postseason awards, as determined via input from the PFT staff and other friends and advisors to the site.
December 31: Offensive rookie of the year.
January 1: Defensive rookie of the year.
January 2: Offensive player of the year.
January 3: Defensive player of the year.
January 4: Comeback player of the year.
January 5: MVP.
January 6: Coach of the year.
January 7: Executive of the year.
