Rams Announce Team Awards

With the season officially over for the Rams, the team announced their awards from 2010. None of them were big surprises, but it’s still good to recognize the guys who led the team to a six-win improvement from 2009. Here is the list:

Steven Jackson wins Daniel F. Reeves Memorial award, which is given to the team’s Most Valuable Player.

Sam Bradford wins The Carroll Rosenbloom Memorial Award, given to the team’s Rookie of the Year.

Oshiomogho Atogwe wins the Carl Ekern Spirit of the Game Award in recognition of his leadership on and off the field.

Bradley Fletcher was named the Rams’ recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award for his comeback from knee surgery.

Some quick thoughts: Jackson was certainly the team MVP in my estimation, and although you could make a case for Sam Bradford, Jackson was the right call. Considering Bradford will likely be the runaway winner of the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, he was the obvious choice for the team award. Atogwe has long been one of the predominant leaders in the locker-room, and Fletcher deserves recognition for having a great season after suffering that nasty injury a year before. I have no issues with any of these choices, but if you have a different opinion, hit the comment section.

    Amendola should be MVP! I also really think we dont need any recEivers because are top 2 are coming back from injuries and we have amendola! Plus let illinois mike start at tight end! Perfect! But we could really use alot of help at the linebackers spot and the DT .

      I’ve gotten plenty of Amendola for MVP, and I wouldn’t have argued with that one bit, but Jackson is so important to this team both on and off the field. As far as your point on receivers, I think we need a guy who is big and physical, and that player isn’t currently on our roster. Avery and Clayton aren’t that type of receiver, even if they both come back. We certainly need help other places, but it was painfully evident how much we need that receiver in the final game against Seattle.

    Steven Jackson is my hero, he isnt afraid to hit like some running backs. I hope he stays with the Rams for years to come. Sam Bradford has the potential to do a lot for the Rams I hope he stays to, he seems to be a good leader and thats what this team needs. Two captains that push the team to do just as good as them. Atogwe is also a leader who, for the defense is a huge asset to why they did so good this season and I look foward to see how great they do next year.

      Well said, Tommy. Jackson, Bradford, and Atogwe are not only great players, but they are also great people and great teammates. With all of the troublemakers out there, it’s nice to have leaders like this on our team.
