Daryl Washington voted team MVP, Paris Lenon is the Cardinals 'good guy'

Daryl Washington took home the Lloyd Herberg team MVP award, while Paris Lenon won the Steve Schoenfeld Good Guy award.

Ever year, we here at ROTB like to analyze the season after it is over and decide which players excelled through 16 games and which ones were a bit of a letdown. For the local writers that are apart of the Pro Football Writers of America, they do something similar, but only in a positive manner.

On Thursday, they handed out their team MVP and outstanding character awards. The Lloyd Herberg Award, given to the team's most productive player, was given to Daryl Washington. As for the 'good guy' award, named after Steve Schoenfeld, Washington's fellow inside linebacker and captain, Paris Lenon won that. Here is the tweet from Cards beat writer Kent Somers:

Washington was, in my eyes as well, the most productive player for the Cards this season. He has 9 sacks from the inside linebacker position through 15 games and he leads the club in tackles with 123. He has been one of the most consistent inside linebackers in the entire league and many feel that he was snubbed from a Pro Bowl selection.

As for Lenon, he continues to ooze the idea of work ethic. Voted as a team captain once again this season, Lenon continues to play at a high level all while helping to lead the defense. He has 98 tackles so far and continues to fend off younger players in Reggie Walker and Stewart Bradley. His contributions on and off the field have been a welcome sight in the Cardinals organization.

Both of these players are very deserving and even when the team is struggling, they continue to show up on game day and give it their all. Congratulations to them on another great season.
