Fred Jackson, his game against Indy just solidified what he had been doing all year for us. He carried the offense for us for much of the year. Schobel would be my HM. He quietly had a pretty large season.

I'd give it to Jackson or Byrd. Tough call though.

Aaron Schobel for me. With out his one man pass rush no chance is our pass D ranked 2nd in the NFL. He has really been the cog that has made the cover 2 work this year because it's pretty clear no one else was getting sacks

I voted for Byrd. He really kept me from losing hope this season. Plus that was one heck of a rookie season. IMHO noone on offense deserved to be a player of the year canidate.

It looks like Fred Jackson is the Bills Player of the Year! Marshawn Lynch won it in both 2007 and 2008. Here are the weekly winners from 2009:

Hall of Fame Game: Xavier Omon
Preseason Week 1: Ellis Lankster
Preseason Week 2: Jonathan Stupar
Preseason Week 3: Aaron Maybin
Preseason Week 4: Aaron Maybin
  • Maybin played well in the preason but was invisible the rest of the year. This was mostly due to lack of playing time, which has also hindered his development. Against the Steelers and Lions Maybin had 2.0 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 3 tackles (3 solo).

  • Stupar started the season on the practice squad but was called up to the active roster when injuries started to take a toll. He was one of the few bright spots on offense during the preseason. Against the Packers Stupar had 5 receptions for 64 yards (12.6 yards per reception) and 1 touchdown.

  • During the regular season Lankster was buried on the depth chart in a strong secondary corps. Against the Bears Lanster had 2 interceptions for 43 yards, 3 passes defended and 2 tackles (2 solo).

  • Second year man Xavier Omon was the only non-rookie to win a player of the week award in the preaseason. He is no longer with the team. Against the Titans Omon had 11 carries for 36 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and 3 receptions for 25 yards.

Week 1: Fred Jackson
Week 2: Fred Jackson
Week 3: Aaron Schobel and Chris Kelsay
Week 4: None
Week 5: Jairus Byrd
Week 6: Jairus Byrd
Week 7: Jairus Byrd
Week 8: Jairus Byrd
Week 9: Bye
Week 10: Lee Evans
Week 11: Terrell Owens
Week 12: Ryan Fitzpatrick
Week 13: Kyle Williams
Week 14: Paul Posluszny
Week 15: Fred Jackson
Week 16: Aaron Schobel
Week 17: Fred Jackson
  • Fred Jackson and Jairus Byrd are tied for the most player of the weeks with four each. Aaron Schobel won it twice. No one was deemed worthy enough to win in Buffalo's week four loss to the Dolphins.

  • In the four weeks Jackson won, he totaled 89 carries for 512 yards (5.8 yards per carry); 17 receptions for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns; 6 returns for 131 yards. He did this against the Patriots twice, the Buccaneers and the Colts.

  • In the four weeks Byrd won, he totaled 7 interceptions for 100 yards, 8 passes defended and 17 total tackles (10 solo). He did this in four consecutive weeks against the Browns, Jets, Panthers and Texans.

  • In the two weeks Schobel won, he totaled 4.0 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and 6 tackles (6 solo). Schobel did this against the Saints and Falcons.

  • In week three against the Saints, Kelsay had 1.0 sacks and 8 tackles (6 solo).

  • In week ten against the Titans, Evans had 4 receptions for 50 yards (12.5 yards per reception) and 2 touchdowns.

  • In week eleven against the Jaguars, Owens had 9 receptions for 197 yards (21.9 yards per reception) and 1 touchdown.

  • In week twelve against the Dolphins, Fitzpatrick went 17/26 (65.4%) for 246 yards (9.5 yards per attempt) and 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He also had 7 carries for 50 yards and another touchdown.

  • In week thirteen against the Jets, Williams had 2.0 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 8 tackles (4 solo).

  • In week fourteen against the Chiefs, Posluszny had 9 tackles (8 solo), 1 interception for 17 yards and 1 pass defeneded.

Just can't give an MVP to Jackson as that offense was truly "offensive". Yes, he played well, but not deserving of a team MVP.

1,000 yards rushing and 4 td's is nothing special in a 16 game season.

I'm not bashing Freddy, in fact it's ridiculous that he wasn't used more.

Byrd was excellent as a ballhawking safety, but still has work to do in the run game.

Williams had a very nice year and Schobel exceeded my expectations.

Poz is overrated imo (sorry Poz lovers).

Wilson was clearly the unsung hero, but not MVP.

TO---did nothing until November.

The winner is......

Brian Moorman

46.6 yard average and a 40.2 net, despite playing the Ralph is fantastic. Moorman is our MVP and is the MVP of the decade. He has been a stud for all of his 9 years in the NFL.

I can't disagree that the offense was horrendous. I also agree that it's ridiculous that he wasn't used more. Jackson was active for 16 games, but he only started 11 of the games, and Lynch was stealing carries after his suspension and up until Fewell took over. His rushing yardage in his 11 starts equates to 1,312 yards over a 16 game season. Anyway, I voted for Jackson not just because of his rushing ability but also because of his versatility. Not only did he lead the team in rushing, but he was also second in receptions behind only Terrell Owens. He was also very effective on kick returns. He even threw a touchdown pass. He didn't have a lot of touchdowns, but no one of the team did. Not including quarterbacks, his five total scores on the team was behind only Lee Evans (7) and Owens (6). I think the most eye popping stat for Jackson this year was his 2,516 all-purpose yards, which was #1 in the league and the fourth best single-season mark of all-time.

I agree that Moorman is defintely the player of the decade for the Bills, with honorable mentions to Aaron Schobel, Eric Moulds and Lee Evans.
