    BEST OF CATEGORIES
    Team on the Rise
    Tennessee Titans - Paul 13
    To be fair Paul didn't get as much lead time as most of us, but the Titans last year almost made the playoffs and I think there was enough improvements built through the draft and limited FA for this team to continue in the right direction. Key players include Reuben Randle and Dre Kirkpatricl, also Kirk Cousins as the future backup.

    Team Built for Now
    Washington Redskins - Anonymous
    This is the definition of a win now team with key positions manned by veterans. Tom Brady has a few seasons left and Matt Birk is damn near ancient. So they better start winning this season because that is one small window.

    Free Agent Steal of the Year
    LeDarius Webb $2,500,000 + #18 overall
    Oakland Raiders - Machiavelli
    CBs in our league our costly and knowing that it was a deep class this year, but the drop off in talent Webb is perfect value here in terms of salary and if he came out where he is in terms of talent is worth #18.

    Draft Steal of the Year
    Matt Kalil #7 Overall
    Kansas City Chiefs - TractorTraylor
    A cornerstone tackle taken later than he should have gone.

    Trade of the Year
    2nd Round Pick, Jarrett Dillard for Peyton Manning
    Jacksonville Jaguars - Bdogtitan11 and Indianapolis Colts - GridIronKing34

    Best in Trades
    New York Giants - UCFinfan86
    I liked his moves in getting Joe Staley, and landing a franchise DT in Ngata.

    Best in Free Agency
    Cincinnati Bengals - finsbuck719
    He had the money and made key signings for Brent Grimes, Carl Nicks and Chad Rineart is good too, even if his marquee names were overpaid but that's free agency. With Colston and Calais Campbell getting 16 mill each I won't penalize him for their contracts.

    Best in Draft
    Dallas Cowboys - Stringer Bell
    He unearthed some steals late, and really brought in a solid draft class regardless of where players were draft in the NFL draft.

    Feud of the Year
    Free Agency Rule Battle
    GridIronKing34 vs Boik14/BuckeyeKing
    - GiK defending his rules against an uprising of epic proportions, kind of.

    Most Improved GM
    St Louis Rams - Fin-Omenal
    He didn't draft Gabbert over Newton this year, most of his moves were solid.

    Rookie GM of the Year (only first year GMs are eligible)
    Jacksonville Jaguars - Bdogtitan11
    Kid made the move to get Peyton and was active from the get go, I'll give him a solid nod.

    Best Offense
    Pittsburgh Steelers - Boik14

    Best Defense
    Buffalo Bills - Toddsphins
    Key players: Von Miller + Patrick Willis

    Best Offensive Weapons (RB/WR/TE)
    Cleveland Browns - Venfeful Odin
    RB - Darren McFadden
    WR - Larry Fitzgerald/Jordy Nelson
    TE - Tim Tebow

    Best Offensive Line
    Pittsburgh Steelers - Boik14

    Team on the Rise- Tennessee Titans (Masterful job in a short period of time for Titans to acquire tons of young talent to build around. Well played.)

    Team Built for Now- Green Bay Packers (Lots of good options here, but additions on defense really set the Cheeseheads apart)

    Free Agent Steal of the Year – Pittsburgh Steelers, Dwight Lowery (League minimum for a versatile starting safety. I let him slip through my fingers, the one regret of this
    league for me. Props)

    Draft Steal of the Year – Mark Barron, Tennessee Titans

    Trade of the Year - Cleveland sends DL Athaya Rubin and DL Jabaal Sheard to Packers for 5th rd pick #156 (Nogta trade was close, but Packers got two real good DL starters for barely anything, hell of a deal)

    Best in Trades –New York Giants (Nogta trade was obviously great, but I think Giants did a solid job addressing needs, getting value in every trade. No lopsided losses either.)

    Best in Free Agency – Kansas City Chiefs (Not many blockbusters, but good value overall to fill out the roster.)

    Best in Draft - Baltimore Ravens (Some mid-round picks hurt him some, but value atop the board was phenomenal…I thought Kansas City was real close here too, as well as Titans)

    Feud of the Year – PSG Denver Broncos trying to sign Chip Kelly for around $100 million

    Most Improved GM – NA (this is my first year, so I really can’t say)

    Rookie GM of the Year (only first year GMs are eligible) – ToddPhins, Buffalo Bills (we made a couple deals together and I always thought he maximized his assets)

    Best Offense – Eagles (tough call, but those WRs and RBs are good. Weeden should be just fine with the help around him)

    Best Defense – Giants ( DL somehow got better, LBs improved drastically and DBs are solid)

    Best Offensive Weapons (RB/WR/TE) – Eagles (Johnson, Jackson, McCoy are great. Lost Celek but did a good job replacing him with various pieces.)

    Best Offensive Line – Kansas City Chiefs (Bookend tackles, plus you got solid guards in Lilja and Asomoah).

    Best Front Seven – Buffalo Bills (Youth and experience will create havoc. Awesome 3-4 front.)

    Best Secondary – Oakland Raiders (CBs, Ss are both stellar)
