Well, I feel like I have waited long enough in the mourning of the end of the end of the season for the Arizona Cardinals. It is time to look back and do some end of season stories and series. We begin this week with the first of many polls for our end of season awards. There will be good and bad ones. Today we look at who should be the offensive MVP of the team.
Carson Palmer will be the easy answer, but let us consider a couple of other players as well. You might still vote Palmer, but we have to have other candidates, right?
Who is your 2015 Arizona Cardinals offensive MVP?
Carson Palmer: The favorite, he set team records for passing yards, touchdown passes, passer rating and interception percentage (well, he was second to himself in 2014). He is probably going to be second or third in league MVP voting.
Larry Fitzgerald: Fitz bounced back from two injury-plagued and statistically low seasons. He set a team record for receptions with 109 and cracked 1200 receiving yards. He looked dominant again at times and added to his own lore with a magical second half in the playoffs against the Packers.
David Johnson: He started the season as a bit player who was a touchdown maker, but with injuries to Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington, he emerged as a potential future star. He cracked 1000 from scrimmage, though playing regularly only for the second half of the season. He scored 13 touchdowns, rushed for 581 yards and caught 36 passes for 457 yards. He returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the team's second game of the season.
Chris Johnson: His season came to a premature end with a fractured tibia. But he helped establish the best Arizona Cardinals running game we have seen in a long time. Four times he rushed for over 100 yards in a game. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry and led the team with 814 rushing yards in only 11 games.
