Good morning, SportsCastr.
I'm well, long and block from top show hockey.
Now you might be wondering.
Well, your name is clearly top shelve AKI.
Why are you doing an NFL video? Well, because nothing is going on in hockey right now, and I need something to Dio.
So if you don't like that, fight me.
But because you can tell from the title of the video we're gonna be I'm going to be predicting my NFL playoff and award selections.
Now, you might get at me for some of these because I have to be very opinionated.
I am known in school for my hot takes, and I am also super bias, so it might be something entertaining.
All right, let's start off with the awards because I like talking about the awards.
Anyways, we're gonna start with the M V P.
Now, before we start off with that for all the awards, I'm gonna list my three nominees and the team that they played on and what position they play so that way.
So, like, for example, if I say Ben Roethlisberger, I would say another nominee is Ben Roethlisberger, the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He's not gonna be on my list, though.
And so just just clearing that up.
Let's start now.
Let's start with the M V P.
One of my favorite awards to talk about and my three nominees.
Personally, I think it's gonna be Patrick Mahomes, quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Yeah, yes, Derrick Henry of the running back of the Tennessee Titans and and I think Josh Allen deserves to at least be on the conversation.
He's, I think he's my third nominee because, like now Mahomes, you can't argue.
But the other two, you might be able to argue, shouldn't be in here now.
I think, Think about let's start with the bill.
Let's start with Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.
Think about it before him.
They had Who's their current backup, Matt Barkley.
Like they would they be winning if they didn't have Josh out? You can answer that question down in the comments.
If you so please.
I don't think they would.
Josh Allen is, I think, clearly Josh Allen is the most valuable player to his team.
Without a doubt, if they didn't have Matt, If they didn't have Josh Allen.
I don't think that they'd be winning the division.
I don't think they'd be even being the discussion for a playoff berth.
But they have Josh Allen.
He's one of the most elusive and most dynamic quarterbacks in the game, and I think he's gonna have a really successful career now.
Next, we have Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans.
I think he's got He's just like Josh out.
His team would not be winning if they did not have him, Derek, But at least with Josh Allen, they have other pieces and and you could say the same thing about the Tennessee Titans.
They have right until they have Cory Davis.
They have other guys.
But if they did not have Derrick Henry last year, do you think that would have made the way off? I'll give you a minute to think about that.
The answer. That question is no.
He carried the Titans last year, and he's been carrying the Titans this year.
I do not think that they would be in the position that they're at if they did not have Derrick Henry now onto my winner, Patrick Mahomes.
He's the bet like you can't doubt he's the best player in the league.
He's the best player on the best team in the A F C best conference in the NFL.
No doubt now that whole sentence right of in confusing to you, but we'll get over it like Patrick Mahomes has thrown for over for almost 10,000 yards in the last three seasons and over 120 touchdown passes.
It's insane from the guy that was backing up Andy Reid. Not anybody.
The hell am I saying from? He went from a guy who most draft scouts said, Oh, he's not gonna be be much in the league to being literally the best in the league from a guy who was backing up Alex Smith to now the best player in the league.
It's incredible, uh, less is Morrison.
Thank you for the 100 ticks, my man.
Okay, eso Anyways, my point being the chief Now, the Chiefs would still be one of, if not the best team in the league because it's impossible to lose with Tyree Kill Travis Calc, Sammy Watkins and Cole Harmon, Libyan Bell client words Hilaire.
It's impossible to lose when you have all those guys now do I think there would be 11 and one right now? Absolutely not.
They probably be more like 93 or eight and four, but they would still be a playoff contender now.
Well, I think my home isn't as valuable to his team as Derrick Henry is.
I do think that he is by far the ***iest player in the league, like it's impossible to watch him and not be amazed at how good he is.
Like he runs like All right, so here is the field.
Holmes is here, like on the opposite side.
Here's Tyree kill right here.
The corner of the end zone on the left side, Mahomes on the right.
You could just throw it.
Cross Body and Tyree kill just running.
Catch it. It's incredible.
So, yeah, I think Mahomes wins the U M V P.
Moving on to the offensive plate.
The offensive player of the year.
Okay, I think my three nominees are Patrick Mahomes, Derrick Henry and DeAndre Hopkins.
Like now, while I do think that Mahomes has easily been the best offensive player, I think Derrick Henry wins this award.
Now I'm not going as in depth on these next few words as I am on this one.
Now let's move on to the defensive player of the year.
Why nominees R. J C.
Jackson with No, I have to go back.
I have to go back anyways, my nominees for the offensive player of the year. I'll say it again.
Patrick Mahomes, quarterback in the Kansas City Chiefs. There.
Henry, running back of the Tennessee Titans, and DeAndre Hopkins, wide receiver of the Arizona Cardinals.
I do believe Derrick Henry will win that award because I'm like you could if you watch that Buffalo Bills game that he played if you saw that stiff on their arc.
Henry is literally a freak of nature.
He's 65 to 45 he can still run a four or five, and he could still run a 45 flat.
It's incredible for a man that size, you should not be able to run that fast, but he does, and he does incredible at his job, and he's just one of the best that there is.
He's like a Jerome.
He's like the current day.
Jerome Bettis, so pretty ****ing good.
The defensive player of the year.
Jackson, cornerback of the New England Patriots.
I have Aaron, Donald, the defensive tackle slash and for the Los Angeles Rams.
And let me just check out my phone real quick because, I don't know, remember who I had.
I am dumb, dumb eso.
Anyways, if you have opinions on this stuff, put your your opinions down below.
Like I'm interested to see what you guys think.
It was my life, I think.
Here are my nominees.
Jason Jackson of the New England Patriots, Aaron Donald, defensive tackle Slash and for the Los Angeles Rams and T.
What defensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers? Uh, well, I do think that J.
Jackson could win this award.
I don't think he will like Yeah, like, uh, I love the guy.
Just he plays for my boys, but I don't I don't think he'll win that.
I think you have to give the award.
Thio Aaron, Donald Aaron Donald has been the best, has been the most athletic player in the league for quite some time now.
Look and like he just rag dolls offensive linemen.
It's so it's so fun to watch.
He's the best defensive player in the league right now.
That is why I am giving him defensive player of the year now on to offensive rookie of the year.
I'm trying to think of who I think, one of the nominees client with a lair.
Defensive what? Defensive Clyde Edwards.
The Layer running back to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Justin Jefferson, wide receiver of the Minnesota Vikings and still in the blank player.
Because that's all I know, actually, no.
And number and third nominee Justin Herbert of quarterback of the Los Angeles Chargers.
Now you can make an argument for each one of these guys.
Climate Edwards Hilaire has been a piece for the Kansas City Chiefs backing up over 700 yards as a rookie.
It's like Zeke Elliot type numbers.
As you guys know, I'm a big **** out van, As you can tell.
Well, I'm I sure, owning Michigan since 2011.
You all right now, anyways, quite.
But I don't I don't be glad it was.
Hillary will win now.
He's also been a freaking nature.
He's had almost 1000 yards receiving this year, if not 1000 like he's been playing incredible for.
And he didn't even have that high of expect expectations he is over performing.
You could say eso anyways and onto my pick.
He's been playing amazing.
He's, uh he probably will break the rookie passing touchdowns record.
I have no doubt about that.
He's got he's gonna have almost 4000 passing yards, is gonna have a monster career that was a long actually now defensive rookie of the year.
I have Antoine Winfield for the safety of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Chase young defensive end for the Washington football team.
So funny, uh, and Jeff Oksiuta, cornerback of the Detroit Lines, because I can't find anybody else because I didn't I just started this idea for a video about 15 minutes ago, and I've been recording for about 14.
So, yeah, I think Chase.
Yeah, I think Chase Young will win this award because he's forced two fumbles this year and he's got 4.5 ***.
The only reason I don't think he has like 10.
5 sacks right now is because of the team is playing on now.
the Washington name Redacted is either gonna win the division or come in a close second place with the New York football Giants? Was just hilarious to say, like the Giants winning the division at five at six and 10.
This will be incredible, I think.
Chase Young Chase Young case.
Young was playing on a team like the Broncos.
A team like the Bengals, Like I'm not saying the bank moves are This are the standard of excellence, but I think he'd be doing better. I believe.
Billy Men 9 to 88 that, well, welcome to the Stream, my guy.
Anyways, I believe I do believe that Chase Young will have an incredible career.
I'm not taking anything away from Antoine Winfield.
He's been having a really good season as well.
Brandon Triche Young.
His freak strength and has and his freakish size has made him a force to be reckoned with already.
Now on to coach of the year.
I think my nominees car.
Andy Reid, head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mike Tomlin of the Crap What? Yeah, Mike Tommen of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Adam Gaze of the New York Jets psych.
I'm just kidding, guys.
I think the third nominee is Sean McDermott of the Buffalo Bills, all offensive nominee.
All A F C nominees.
I think any read should win, but I think it will if the Steelers go 16.
And so you kind of have to give it Thio.
You have to like you can if somebody somebody that went 12 and 4 13 and three to coach of the year over someone who went 16 to know it's, I think, while I do not think the Steelers will go 16 and oh, I still think that Mike Tomlin will win because of the 11 game win streak to start the season, Could Could be more.
Could be 12, 13, 14, 15 or even 16.
I don't know, but like now, let's go on to comeback player of the year.
I have only one, Actually, my three nominees are Alex Smith of the Washington name Redacted, Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cam Newton of the New England Patriots.
I think Camden's had a terrible season this year.
I'm gonna I'm just going to come out and say three Onley.
Four passing touchdowns, nine interceptions and 10 rushing touchdowns.
That's not good for a quarterback.
Cam Newton is a designated quarterback.
He's and he's done nothing but be a running back that can throw the ball occasionally.
He has not been a run.
He has not been a quarterback, this shooter.
He has been a running back.
And it pains me to say, because Captain is one of my favorite players ever.
I have a Cam Newton jersey.
I did not decide where today, but, well, what am I gonna dio? I think Alex Smith.
While I think you might deserve it, he's not.
He's not going to get it because, like you must two years.
He's going to be a close second place, I believe.
But Ben Roethlisberger? He missed the entire year, and the Steelers didn't make the playoffs.
They had get head Rudolph Austin, Ours Mason Rudolph, you guys know and they had quack quack colleges or Devlin Hodges.
How whatever you want to say.
Ben Roethlisberger has been having an incredible season, and he's been the leader off 11 and 18, possibly more.
Billy Man, 9 to 88 Thanks for the 10 takes.
We'll be appreciate much appreciated.
Now let's move on to the playoffs.
As you guys know, they've changed the playoff format this year, so that now it's 17 and only the number one seed gets about a week now.
Let's start with the A F C number one.
I do think the Pittsburgh Steelers they're gonna have the best record in the conference.
I am not a Steelers fan.
I hate the Steelers.
I absolutely being hated the Steelers.
They're my probably my second least favorites, human leaving aside from the Philadelphia Eagles, right? But I have to give them credit where credit's due.
They've had a great season.
Well, I haven't really played many really good opponents.
I do still didn't that they're gonna clinch the conference at 14 and to like, we're gonna lose you.
There's not really much all there teams that I see the Steelers losing Thio.
They played the Titans.
They play the Ravens.
Very, uh, the Ravens aren't gonna make the playoffs this year.
The Steelers have have conquered everyone in their path.
All right, so yeah, I think the Steelers are going to make are going to clinch the bye week.
Now let's go from seven set from seven up, starting at number seven.
I think that's gonna go to finance a Cenex.
What? So did you guys watch the game last night? She's always loss to the Broncos.
Now, actually, I'm gonna I'm actually going to start with my division champions from each division from me.
Let's start from the U. S.
The Chiefs have already clinched that, basically, the Chiefs at a staggering 11 1 record.
They basically need to lose out and have the Raiders with the rest of their games.
They've already clinched a playoff spot, but well, from the A F C South, I do believe that I was going to go to the Tennessee.
Derek Henry's like they've had an incredible season.
They were getting blown out by the Browns at halftime, which a couple years ago, you would call me if I told you that the Browns we're gonna be winning 38 7 against the Tennessee Titans at halftime just three years later.
Sorry. I need to rephrase again.
If I went back 2 2017 e and told them and told a typical Browns fan that they would be beating.
That there would be beating the Tennessee Titans, who were at the time ate and ate and three i 38 to 7.
I will become the laughing stock of the town.
They were not, believe me at all.
That's what's so special about the grounds.
They used to be the worst team in the league, and now they're comes to the rest.
Him are not close, but they're getting there, all right? No, now to the A F C North.
I do believe the Steelers are definitely going to win that division.
Hands down, No doubt the Steelers are basically rolling through everyone and route to a first round bye, I think, from the A f c East.
This is one of the most controversial opinion of the video, but I think the New England Patriots are gonna pull out the division like Think about it, who else? They have to play like most of their games that they've lost have been in close fashion.
They shouldn't have lost to the Seahawks because Julian Edelman dropped the ball they could be.
They could be The Chiefs of Camden didn't get Have the vid like I very well think that the Patriots could be nine and three right now, like they should be nine and three right now, because I believe that because if you watch that Patriots game Patriots Chiefs, you would have seen Brian Hoyer fumble and fumble practically in the end zone twice.
Which both of those times result that both of those farmers resulted in KFC in Casey in cake resulted in Kansas City points.
So that was a big, big deal.
And I don't think Cam Newton would have fumbled those balls and those those would have been from anywhere from six points to 16 points that could those two bombs could have been the difference between losing and winning for the New England Patriots.
So, yeah, I think I have the Patriots.
They have, and they shouldn't be the bills, too, I believe because, like all they have to do all okay, I had to do was not fun with the ball, and I think we were the one.
I think the bills have a really tough schedule, and I think they're gonna lose.
At least I think they're gonna lose towards the next five games.
And the Patriots? They're gonna sneak in and win the division this second.
But at 10 6 because like I think we could be. We could meet the Bills.
I think we could.
He could definitely be the Jets and the and the Dolphins really play last, though, like just a second.
And I think we can beat the Rams.
So yeah, I think this is definitely the most controversial opinion of the video.
But I think the Patriots sneaking and get the fourth seed in the conference that was one of the NFC Well, let's start off with the emcee trash.
I mean, the NFC East, I think the Giant I just struck out some schedules real quick.
I think I don't know the wrong teams.
I do think that the Washington football team is gonna win that division like I know I am.
I said earlier that the Giants might win the division, but the Giants have a really tough schedule going down the road and the football team has a lot easier of a schedule.
So yeah, I'm taking the Washington football team to get swoop in and get the four seed in the conference.
Now let's move on to the NFC West.
As of current, the Rams were running that division.
You got the entire breaker.
I think the rounds I do think the rains will hold on because the Seahawks are kind of garbage losing to the losing to the New York cult McCoys.
That's just inexcusable.
I think if you're gonna lose, do any team, lose to a good team, don't lose to the Giants.
Okay? I think the Rams win that division.
And now let's go on.
And I think the Rams get the three.
Get the two seeds.
What, now? The energy North.
This division is.
I'm just going to say it's it's decent.
Its top three, I believe.
I think, while the Packers do, I do believe will win that division.
I think I think the Vikings might coming out a close second, So, yeah, I'm making the bike.
I'm taking the hackers.
Let's go on, move on to the playoff picture.
I think the number one, I think the number let's start in the FC thinking the number to Kansas City.
So my matchups are the number two Kansas City Chiefs versus the number seven Miami Dolphins.
Yeah, Okay, Try that with Jonathan Stand last year they be in the playoff.
They wouldn't believe you at all.
I do think Kansas City would stuck.
Would practically stomp, um, like, and I think they will go on.
I think the Chiefs will go on to the next round.
The Dolphins have a bright future, though.
You guys will be good.
You guys gonna have a top 10 pick? Perfect to selective wide receiver like they're They're gonna be really good next year.
I think I have the number three the number three Tennessee Titans going up against the going up against the Cleveland going up **** have against the six seed Buffalo Bill.
Not Buffel six seed Buffalo Bills.
Actually, I think the bills will go 10 6 and the pages will get the tiebreaker like the patriot.
Uh, I think the bill I think the I think the bill, I think the second part two of Bill's titans, I think the Titans would basically smoke him again.
And I do think they will go on to face the Kansas City Chiefs.
Yeah, okay, well, I think the Browns are a super good team.
If the Patriots and Cam Newton configure it out somehow, I think the Patriots can easily make a deep playoff run.
I'm thinking I'm thinking Patriots over brows.
You're gonna call me Super Bites for this And but I don't care.
I think Patriots win now for the divisional matches.
Steel ish Steelers, Patriots, the Steelers.
They almost lost to the Cowboys and the story, and they almost lost to the Baltimore Trace McSorley Also.
So the to go the tube ticktock mean quarterbacks.
Both of those teams, they they almost lost come.
They need to hold off a thriller to be the they need to make 1/4 quarter.
They need to make a late game corn.
Oh, my God, I'm sorry.
Excuse me for my speech impediment.
They make a late game comeback to beat the Dallas Cowboys, one of, if not know, they're probably the second worst team in the league.
How do you How do you almost lose to them when you're 11 it up? Yeah, and I think the Patriots have easily beat more playoff teams that the Steelers have being the types of around.
So e think the Patriots win that game, and I think they go on to the conference championship.
The revival of the dynasty now Chiefs Titans, this is.
This might bring deja vu for some.
For some, for some Titan spins.
And she sends, I think the Chiefs win that game.
Derrick Henry is a beast, but he can't carry the Titans against the juggernaut of the NFL now Patriots Chiefs.
I think the Chiefs won that game.
I said earlier in the video that if the chief that if the Patriots had came, it would have been a different story.
But playoff playoff? Mahomes is built different.
How do I say, How do I say he? I think he's.
He can wreck a defense with one drive.
He destroys competence like Mike Tyson.
You can say, Now let's go on to the NFC.
The number one seed I do believe is going to be the New Orleans Saints, like they're having an incredible season like they are.
Think about the last two seasons they've missed.
They missed Juries for eight games.
They've won all eight of those games It's astonishing how good they could do without Drew Brees.
Now, let's just change is real quick now, I think the two seed Los Angeles Rams vs the seventh seed versus the seventh seed, um, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers have been looking weak this past couple of weeks.
E think I do think that the that they'll figure it out.
Playoff Brady always prevails.
So I'm taking the Viking, not the Vikings.
Oh, yeah, I am taking the huh? ****.
I'm picking the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to defeat the Los Angeles ramps.
Brady's gonna get it all figured out.
He's gonna figure out how to hit his targets, and I think they're going to make a deeply out from the number three Green Bay Packers against the sixth.
It's the sixth seed Seattle Seahawks couldn't.
How could they let this happen? How could you have such a talented team and yet still fall so far? I'm making I'm making the Yeah, I'm taking the Packers to destroy the Seahawks.
Well, I do believe that the trio of D.
Metcalf, Russell Wilson and Chris Carson is a really good one.
They've just not really been able to perform in the playoffs.
This past couple years on here is my favorite.
The battle of revived teams, The Giants versus the Vikings.
Uh, this is fine.
I think the Vikings are are really gonna be a good team.
Second, I'm playing doctor boxes with a friend I am picking.
I'm gonna pick the, but I'm gonna pick the Giants.
In this scenario, I think the Giants are gonna be the sleeper team.
The one that goes far.
All right, now the division ALS.
I have the Saints and the Buccaneers.
That was gonna cause PTSD for for fans of the buck in English and then ****.
Who's the other one and then, um ****.
And then, um uh, who's What is the name? The Giants and the Packers.
I don't know how to speak today.
I'm making the I mean, I'm gonna pick the Packers to torch the Giants.
The job, I think Packers Saints in the NFC championship, I'm making the States.
The States are easily a top two teams in the top top top three team in the league this year.
States are going to go on to the Super Bowl and a battle of teams that lost in the conference championships in 2018.
I think the Chiefs are gonna make it give them around to their money.
But I think that in the end, the States when and Drew Brees gets his gets his Super Bowl and he'll finally retire.
So, yeah, those are my NFL, my NFL playoff awards and picks.
Hope you enjoy today.
If you do, then give me follow and I'll see you off by.
