From what I understand, it's my decision on the players of the week for the American Conference weeks 1-8. If it's my choice alone, I would like to put some things out front to make this an enjoyable process for everyone.
First and foremost...please be respectful if you ask me why I didn't choose your guy.
There are 16 teams worth of players to choose from and I can only pick 1 from each side of the ball. There will be several worthy choices each week and given time, I plan to explain my thought process behind the choice in what can best be described as the honorable mention section.
If anyone wants further explanation I can give it, just ask nicely. Any posts or PM's that start out with something like Hey dumbass will be ignored by me.
I can say now that my choices will likely always be from a winning team. Players with great stat lines on losing teams will be included in honorable mention but it's hard for me to justify giving one POW with rare exceptions.
I really wish hurries and catch allowed % were included in the box score rather than digging through team's game by game stats, those can be helpful in breaking up a logjam of similar basic stat lines. One game in particular in another league I had one DE with 4 sacks, the other 3 but the one with 4 sacks also had 11 hurries while the 3 sack guy had but 5.
Those 11 hurries make the 4 sacks stand out, which is what I'm looking for in a POW.
That's all I can think of right now, been a long night of work and I have an allocation pick coming up in 40 minutes.
