The Joe-ny Awards: Seahawks Offensive, Defensive, Special Teams players of the year
Who were the MVPs in Seattle: Seaside Joe 1439
Geno Smith won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award on Thursday night and that’s incredibly neat. Of all the awards, that’s one of them. It wasn’t one of them from 1967 to 1997, but then Doug Flutie happened.
Remember last year’s Comeback Player of the Year? Sure. We all do! We all immediately could recall that it was Dak Prescott.
Just kidding, it was Joe Burrow.
Until doing research for this post, I had forgotten that either were coming back last year from their devastating injuries a season earlier. But now I do. And now I’m filing back it into forgotten.

Geno follows Eric Berry, Jordy Nelson, Keenan Allen, Andrew Luck, Ryan Tannehill, Alex Smith, and Burrow for the award. Don’t read too much into me being flippant about Comeback Player of the Year; I will be just as flippant for every other honor and I don’t think it’s really all that important to most fans who even wins MVP. Sure, in the moment, it feels like something. And it’s another conversation to have during the season that keeps us occupied for maybe two-percent of the time.
Now we’ve moved on.
