Bean Dip is Exciting: NFL Honors Winners

Hey, too nervous about the game to do anything else?  Getting excited about the 12 layer bean-bacon dip that you only have once a year during the Super Bowl because it not only has 3000 calories an ounce, but it causes you spend 90% of the next two days in the bathroom?  Had something better to do last night than watch the AP awards given out at the NFL Honors in Arizona?  Well, we got you covered.  Here’s a list of winners (courtesy of

  • FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Year: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers; Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Of course, the biggest story of the night, in my opinion, is that Kyle Orton got one vote for Comeback Player of the Year.  Being a Bears fan, I certainly can appreciate Orton as a game manager.  And normally I’d say something snarky about this, but heck, Orton is cool.  And I feel bad for him because he can’t seem to ditch the molester-stache:

Well, we certainly can’t leave you on that, so here’s a snazzy picture of J.J. Watt from the NFL Honors.  Can that guy pick a suit or what?
