Last night, ahead of Super Bowl 50, the NFL presented its yearly awards that shine light on the best coaches and players of the season. The CAROLINA PANTHERS walked away with top honors. The awards were presented at the NFL HONORS awards show. The winners list shapes up as follows:

-Cam Newton wins NFL MVP-

  • MVP – Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
  • Offensive Player of the Year – Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers
  • Defensive Player of the Year – J.J. Watt, Texans
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year – Todd Gurley, Rams
  • Defensive Rookie of the Year – Marcus Peters, Chiefs
  • Comeback Player of the Year – Eric Berry, Chiefs
  • Coach of the Year – Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers
  • Assistant Coach of the Year – Wade Phillips, Broncos defensive coordinator

I may be biased because the Carolina Panthers are one of my favorite NFL teams, but I hope these top awards translate into a victory today at Super Bowl 50 as they face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The game begins at 6:30 EST.  Lady Gaga will be singing the National Anthem and the halftime show will feature Coldplay, Beyonce’, and Bruno Mars.




This coming weekend is one of the most anticipated weekends for boxing fans.  Floyd Mayweather (47W 0L 0D 26KOs) vs. Manny Pacquiao (57W 5L 2D 38KOs) fight is front and center for the weekend and many will be watching.  Before you start asking, I think Mayweather is going to handle Pacquiao with no major problem.  Pacquiao may give him a good fight but in the end I think Mayweather will definitely prevail.  Jamie Foxx, who’s starring as Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic, is going to sing the National Anthem before the fight begins.  Foxx is a big boxing fan and if you remember, he starred as Muhammad Ali’s right hand man, Drew Bundini, in the film “Ali”
Jamie Foxx also sang “America the Beautiful” before the Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight in 2011.  check him out singing below.  Also, let me know who you think is going to win…
