    surprised me with choice of most valuable player going to an offensive lineman. Nice to see that selection. QB, and running backs know how important the line is to their success.

    How come there’s an asterisk next to the Jack R. Robinson award?

    • Reformed Droog

      Pretty sure it’s an artifact from the press release where all of the awards were bulleted with an asterisk.

    Surprised brett Hundley didn’t get mvp, he seemed to be the heart and soul of the team through the tough games.
