As you are aware by now, with the dawn of Football Season, we have introduced a few weekly College Football Awards.
We received an email from a thoughtful fan who is more NFL oriented, asking if we had plans to initiate any NFL weekly awards.
We didn't. At least prior to receiving the email.
But, we realized that it would be appropriate each week to recognize a player or players who excel but normally don't get headlines.
In that light, we have founded the NFL Weekly Roger Wehrli Award, in recognition of Wehrli's 2007 enshrinement into the Hall of Fame.
The award will, on a weekly basis, recognize the most outstanding White Cornerback in the NFL.
Wehrli is the only white CB in the Hall of Fame, and may very well be the only white CB to have played in the modern era.
We will hold off on announcing the winner until after tonight's Monday double header.
The competition thus far has been fierce.
And, the best part:
We want to hear from YOU, our valued reader.
This award will be strictly based on reader voting. Either leave a comment, or send us an email.
We'll tally the votes and then release the winner of the Roger Wehrli NFL White CB of the Week award some time tomorrow!
Thank you in advance for your participation.
