Below you'll find our annual awards for the best Saints players. The awards are all chosen by me, largely influenced by the player grades, and I've included the 2011 winners for comparison's sake. The Saints Nation rule: if you are chosen as the MVP, you cannot be chosen as the player of the year for your unit, and you cannot win more than one award. You may find my MVP pick shocking, but I feel good about it and stand by the pick. Congratulations to the winners!
