Now that headline might be silly – and it is – but, I’m telling you how this could go.

This via The Associated Press: “The AP announced today it will update its voting system for the AP NFL Awards, which are given yearly to National Football League players.

The awards will be announced during the 12th annual NFL Honors event on Feb. 9, 2023, on NBC and simulcast on the NFL Network.

The essence of the AP NFL Awards remains the same – to recognize the top performers of the season,” AP Global Sports Editor Ricardo Zuniga said. “Our goal is to provide the voters with an accurate and fair voting system to reflect their preferences. These tweaks will help them in their selection process.

The AP NFL Awards recognize the season’s top performers with honors including AP Most Valuable Player – a distinction AP has handed out since 1957 – and AP Coach of the Year. They are voted on by a nationwide panel of 50 sports journalists who cover the league.”

This from “The finalists were determined through the AP’s new voting system, which asks voters to rank their top five picks for MVP and top three for the other awards. The winners will be announced at the 12th annual NFL Honors ceremony on Feb. 9, 2023, which will air live on NBC, Peacock and NFL Network.”

OK, so, hang on, let me get this straight: You’re telling me FANS and media will decide this?

That considered, I’m quickly going with Jalen Hurts (+1500).

Look, Patrick Mahomes should be a lock, but I’ve seen upsets from the Oscars (I’m looking at you Glenn Close and Academy members) to the Grammys and the Globes and all the rest. You get the picture.

The odds I’m using are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook, which offers great promotions.

But don’t forget about all the other great gambling options available in your state including BetMGM and more.

So Philly’s population is about 5.8 million. Kansas City’s population is roughly 1.8 million.

I’ll take the numbers on that.

The current odds from DK look like this (and I’m only listing the top four since nobody else has a chance):


Patrick Mahomes (-1400)

Joe Burrow (+900)

Jalen Hurts (+1500)

Josh Allen (+1600)

That number on Mahomes (-1400) is monstrous. Hurts winning MVP likely won’t come in, but throw just a little – a very little – just in case I’m correct.
