Frazier could have made a case, maybe even one of the Harbaughs or Mike Smith, but congrats to Arians.

We'll see how far he takes Arizona.

Bruce did well, but much like Luck and the entire Colts team this year, I think he was overrated.

Dont get me wrong, they were all good, but none were as good as advertised. Luck got more attention and love much of the season than 2 rookie QBs who clearly outplayed him, and the Colts won 11 games on a very easy schedule and were riding high on emotions.

I wont say Arians didnt have a case, but I think this was a "perfect storm" situation. I think Arians (with Arizona) and the Colts both come back down to earth pretty quickly.

Who knew that Bruce Arians would be a better head coach than offensive coordinator?

Good choice, though I would have given the award to Shanahan.

After their last game? No way.

I don't think they're supposed to take playoffs into account when voting(I could be wrong), but you can't give he award to a guy who puts his QB out there in that condition.

Rolling Eyes The only person I blame for the Griffin situation is whoever was responsible for the field.

Im not saying the Cards cant improve under him by any means.

Im just saying I seriously doubt he will ever be the great coach this award implies he is.

Who overrated us? Last I checked, dramatically outperforming expectations was a good thing. Us winning as much as we did was an accomplishment because teams in our scenario rarely win more than a handful of games. Nobody expected it, nobody had us rated.

Whether or not we come back to earth next year is irrelevant for 2012 awards.

Would have selected Jim over Bruce. Can't blame people for voting for Bruce considering the circumstances around his year though and the job he did.

Why Jim Harbaugh? Not saying he didn't do a good job, but he won last year. Our record wasn't as good even though the schedule was much harder. Are you picking him for choosing Kaepernick over Smith?
