2003 NFL Awards

COACH OF THE YEAR

Bill Belichick
New England Patriots

With an opportunistic defense the Patriots won many close games on the way to a NFL best 14-2 record, which is all the more remarkable as the Pats survived a rough stretch of injuries early in the season.

DEFENSIVE ROOKIE of the YEAR

Terence Newman
Dallas Cowboys

Terence Newman played a vital role in the turnaround of the Dallas Cowboys who made the playoffs after 3 straight 5-11 seasons. Newman showed veteran poise at times with 4 interceptions and 17 passes defended.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER of theYEAR

Ray Lewis
Baltimore Ravens

Easily the most intense player in the NFL Ray Lewis once again had a stellar season anchoring the Ravens defense, as he punished whoever had the ball all year while leading the Ravens to a division title.

OFFENSIVE ROOKIE of the YEAR

Anquan Boldin
Arizona Cardinals

Playing on a lousy team Anquan Boldin didn’t receive a great deal of national attention but he did receive a Rookie record 101 passes, along with a solid 1,377 yards complete with 8 Touchdowns.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER of the YEAR

Priest Holmes
Kansas City Chiefs

Priest Holmes played a vital role in the Chiefs 9-0 start and franchise best 13-3 season, as he set a new NFL record for 27 Touchdowns. It should be enough for him to earn his 2nd consecutive offensive player of the year award.

NFL MVP

Jamal Lewis
Baltimore Ravens

Jamal Lewis may have fell short in his quest for the record, but 2,066 yards is still quite a year as he was s the sole source of offense to the Ravens who won the division with the worst QB stats in the league.

These are not just mere prediction but whom I believe should win the said awards. Slected by Frank Fleming on December 30, 2003 at 1:20 am EST
