ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter put together his midseason NFL awards and Fred Jackson is near the top of his list.
Schefter has Fred Jackson as his runner-up for league MVP behind Aaron Rodgers and he’s got Jackson as his Offensive MVP. Here’s what Schefter had to say about Jackson with an interesting quote from Drayton Florence.
Offensive Player of the Year — Bills running back Fred Jackson: Might be the best all-around running back in football. “Our [No.] 22 equals the old [No.] 21,” Bills cornerback Drayton Florence said, comparing Jackson to his former San Diego teammate, LaDainian Tomlinson. “I see flashes of LT in Fred blocking, catching, good in space and power.” Runner-up: Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Schefter also had Bills head coach Chan Gailey as his co-runner-up for NFL Coach of the Year with Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis behind 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
