hkking just scored 25 points in Torgogog's Block Party!
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin wins the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award at the 2016 NFL Honors.
TRENDING: Eli Manning wins another MVP award, but it's not the kind you're thinking of.

It's probably the greatest award you could ever win: The Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. The award was established in 1970. It was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton.

Each team nominates one player who has made a significant and positive impact on his community.

And this year the tremendous contributions that Eli Manning made to his community were undeniable. Our hats and helmets go off to you, Mr. Manning! You are the Man of the Year, Manning... see what we did there?! ;)

If you could have any type of charity, what would it be?
This year has been an amazing season of football with top plays and players. I will cast my votes for the NFL Awards later this year.

Offensive Player of The Year

There are so many players to pick from! There is one that always stands out, which is Antonio Brown. The relationship between the quarterbacks and wide receivers are huge- Antonio Brown and Big Ben have accomplished that this season with 136 receptions and 1,834 yards heading into the playoffs. Another pick would be Tom Brady leading a team that has had major players out all year like their offensive line and major receiver Julian Edelman. These are my two top picks for the Offensive player of the Year.

Defensive Player of The Year
My picks are either Chandler Jones or Charles Woodson. Chandler Jones led the team with 12.5 sacks out of the 49.5 sacks this season. He had the best season of his career. Charles Woodson is a league veteran who retired after this season. He also had a great season with 5 interceptions 3rd in the NFL this season. As a cornerback on the Raiders he led their team as a defensive captain and stood out to rookies on the team.

Rookie of The Year
Amari Cooper
has been the standout player offensively on the Raiders with yet another amazing relationship with Derek Carr, the Raiders Quarterback. They combined for 72 receptions for 1,070 yards, and 6 touchdowns most in all 3 categories by a Raiders rookie. He has been a major role for the Raiders team and give them the best shot at getting into the playoffs.

Walter Payton Man of The Year
Apart from being on the field a lot of what happens in the NFL is off the field. David Bruton Jr. and Devin McCourty are two major role models. They both do charities and are active in the community with the Fuel Up To Play 60 program. It is a major accomplishment for an NFL player to follow after the greatest of the NFL.

What are your opinions for the NFL Awards?

-Kid Reporter Tyler
There are NFL players who had promising careers. But they wanted this one thing to complete it. A Super Bowl ring. For themselves to have a probably a once in a lifetime accomplishment to win a Super Bowl. I will tell you NFL players who I think deserve this honor in their amazing NFL career.

Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, and Malcom Floyd
This is a top 5 QB to TE duo in NFL history. Antonio Gates who is a great TE who is still versatile and Philip Rivers a QB who is just competitive and wants wins. Malcom Floyd is a go to guy so he will make big plays. You would've thought "man these didn’t the Chargers win a Super Bowl" but then the thing is they didn't. The thing holding back their Super Bowl dreams is the team doesn’t have a powerhouse RB, good OL, and a horrible defense. Because of these things on their team they can’t go anywhere.

Jason Witten

At least a top 5 TE of all time. I didn't include Tony Romo because Romo has not really proved himself a reliable QB. Jason Witten at 33 years old has lot of experience to the game and has been putting up franchise numbers. A nice guy who does lot’s of service but just can't get a ring. Things that hold him back are, he lost his star back and friend DeMarco Murray, and the defense has been lacking. With his legendary work, he definitely would need a ring to make a bigger legacy.

Larry Fitzgerald
One of the best all around WRs to ever play the game. I don't only mean catching but he is the best blocking WR in the NFL who blocks for his teammates when they are needed and just in case the defender catches them. Not is this only a great football player, he is an amazing guy off the field who serves his community. Last year he was candidate for Walter Payton Man of the Year which is for the player who gets the best recognition off the field to better the society. The Cardinals now who have Carson Palmer and if my Steelers don't make the Super Bowl, I’m going all in for Arizona to win it for Larry.

Adrian Peterson
This guy is just a monster. Best back in the league. Most of the time you will see him trucking other guys like they are school yard kids on the playground. Sometimes he catches go to passes. AP is a top 5 RB of all time and still needs a ring. I don’t think there are really things holding the Vikings down I think the only problems is, they need to be more clutch and less penalties. If they are able to get a 1st round bye one day, his career might have just been locked and loaded into history.

Delanie Walker
He isn't  a top 10 TE of all time. Either is he a top 100 player of all time. But this guy is something special. He will get out of jammed plays from linebackers and create space. But he does deserve a ring. There are many things holding the Titans back but he doesn't complain. OL needs lots of improvements. Defense needs to be more impenetrable. Can be better red zone threats. He just tries and get his job done and make sure guys are doing theirs. I think he is a Hall of Famer and definitely should get 82 retired by Tennessee.

Steve Smith Sr.
This is the best talk trasher to ever play the game. He talks all that smack to get in your head and he dominates whenever he gets on the field. His old team, Carolina, are the best team in the NFL right now. That is probably the worst feeling ever because you never went to the Super Bowl and now your former team has potential. He is now on the Ravens who OL is starting to do bad and the defense can not click at times. He helps off the field so family for anything is important to him. Definite HOF and would complete his trash talking legacy if he won a ring.

Andre Johnson
This guy is built with lots of strengh. You through a fade into the red zone and he will get up and catch that ball. When he was on the Texans, he had a horrible QB  (Matt "Pick 6" Schaub) who was not on target. He also had DeAndre Hopkins who was about a rookie during the time so they were destined to be a good duo. But that's when Houston cut him and he left to play with Indianapolis. If he plays for a couple more seasons, he might get that trophy in his hands and a ring on his finger.

You might think it is easy if you have a good team but hard to make it through in careers. These HOF bound players have amazing stats, but don’t have fame by winning championships... just yet. I wish all these players luck in their career and hope they can have their dream of having a Super Bowl ring on their finger.

-Kid Reporter Solomon
Hi guys-

Kid Reporter Hamza here and the NFL season is almost over and we can all see who the best play makers are at this point. I'm here to make my prediction at this years NFL Honors. 

MVP: Cam Newton
This was actually a difficult decision because the Panthers had their streak come to a close, but I'm still sticking with Cam because he has it all. He might not have the arm of Carson Palmer or the smarts of Brady, or the legs of Russell Wilson, but there's nothing he can't do well. Palmer and Brady can't run very well and Russell isn't super smart or has amazing arm strength, but Cam has everything you want in a quarterback. He's fast, smart, and has a great arm. Oh, also he has the best touchdown celebration for a quarterback.

Honorable Mention: Carson Palmer, Tom Brady, Andy Dalton

OPOTY: Carson Palmer
His team is 13-2 and his team completely chewed up and spit back out one of the best quarterbacks in football (Aaron Rodgers). He has played phenomenal with two 1,000 yard receivers and one almost nearing that.

Honorable Mention: Antonio Brown, Adrian Peterson, Cam Newton, Julio Jones

DPOTY: Luke Kuechly
He is the heart and soul of the best defense in football. He is a part of the Carolina Panther amazing defense and he has done it all. He has sacked, tackled, forced fumbles, recovered fumble, intercept, and he has a defensive touchdown. Now all he needs is a running touchdown which I bet he can do, a receiving touchdown which I bet he can do, and a passing touchdown which I also bet he can do. He has played amazing for this defense he I think he will be rewarded with this award.

Honorable Mention: J.J. Watt, Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald

OROTY: Jameis Winston or Todd Gurley
I couldn't decide which one of these rookies should get the award. While Todd Gurley has done more at his position, Jameis Winston has been more consistent. Also the Bucs were actually pretty close in the playoff picture about 3 weeks ago. The Rams were basically eliminated a while back. What Todd Gurley has done in 11 games this far has been magnificent though.

Honorable Mention: Marcus Mariota, David Johnson, Amari Cooper

DROTY: Marcus Peters
This guy is leading the league in interceptions (8), pass deflections (32), and int return yards. Fun fact, he's a ROOKIE. Yes that's right a rookie is putting up this number. Peters had been very beneficial for the Chiefs, because the Chiefs only had 6 interceptions all of last year. Peters alone has had 8. He has amazing play making ability and flashy play style.

Honorable Mention: Ronald Darby, Leonard Williams, Byron Jones

Walter Payton Man of the Year Award: Gary Barnidge

Fantasy Player of The Year: Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson broke some records over the past few weeks after destroying opposing defenses with his #1 target, Doug Baldwin, who over the past five weeks has caught 11 touchdowns.

Honorable Mention: Doug Baldwin, Todd Gurley, Brandon Marshall, Allen Robinson, Doug Martin

Coach Of The Year: Andy Reid
Yeah you guys will probably argue with me, about how Ron Rivera and Bruce Arians deserve the award, but Andy Reid has led a 1-5 team and won nine straight to clinch a playoff berth and possibly win the division at 10-5. Also their best defensive player going out along with their two best pass rushers and then be able to win 9 straight that is amazing.

Honorable Mention: Ron Rivera, Bill Belichick, Bruce Arians

Comeback Player of the Year: Eric Berry
To me Eric Berry is a shoo-in because he came back from CANCER, and came back to the field and became a pro bowl safety and Pro Football Focus, states him as the best safety in football and I agree. He has made great plays whether it is getting interceptions, tackling in the back-field, breaking up passes or sacking the quarterback he has become better than he was before.

Honorable Mention: Adrian Peterson, Carson Palmer, NaVorro Bowman

Well that's it I hope you guys agree with my predictions, leave your comments down below

-Kid Reporter Larissa
The Walter Payton Man of the Year Award is a great award to be nominated for. It recognizes players who reach out to their community, do volunteer and charity work, also recognizing their excellence on the field. This award is presented to 1 player in the NFL Honors ceremony. All 32 teams nominated 1 player.

The one player that stands out to me this year is Benjamin Watson of the New Orleans Saints. His humility, charity work, and his want to serve his community stands out to me. He deserves to win this honorary award. I hope he wins.

Which player do you think should win?

Poll: Is AP the best ever!?!
This dude is unreal!!! He just ran for over 150 yards for the second time this season AND it was his 18th time in his career tying him with Emmitt Smith and Eric Dickerson on the all-time list. ONLY three other RBs have more 150-plus yard games Barry Sanders (25 games), Jim Brown (22 games) and Walter Payton (20 games). ALL THESE DUDES ARE IN THE HALL OF FAME!!!

If you could have any RB on this list for your team, who would you take and WHY??
Poll: Travel Back or Forward?

What if you could rub your magic football and travel in time?

Your first decision would be whether to travel backwards to the past or forwards to the future.

The Past: You could go to any of the great NFL games of the past: watch Bart Starr play in the first Super Bowl, or maybe meet Walter Payton at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii! You could watch your favorite NFL great play in his prime. It'd be like seeing the Pro Football Hall of Fame come to life!

The Future: Cyborg football players shooting lasers out of their eyes and traveling over 100-miles per hour, while playing on a field of flames! You'd watch from a super comfy hi-tech couch in the stands while eating hot dogs that are healthier than carrots and cheese nachos that have more essential vitamins than broccoli.

The Carolina Panthers pick Washington linebacker Shaq Thompson No. 25 in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Panthers' pick is announced by Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award Winner Thomas Davis.

Draft Town in Chicago will be ROCKING when the draft starts on Thursday.

Check it out as Brittney Payton, daughter of NFL legend Walter Payton (Sweetness!), provides all the 411 on Draft Town.

NFL RUSH will be at Draft Town all week so check back often, and don't forget to watch the NFL Draft starts tonight on the NFL Network.

He set the standard for the modern day running back leaving the game at the top of the record books.

Watch how he did it over the course of he course of his legendary career.

Every day kept getting better and more exciting as the big day was close. The 4th Annual NFL Honors Awards took place on the eve of Super Bowl Sunday.

I was invited to attend this star-studded event. As I rode the elevator from my hotel to attend the event, I stood next to Carolina Panthers linebacker, winner of the Walter Payton Man of The Year Award, Thomas Davis. He took the time to take a picture with me and was a very nice guy who does great work for underprivileged children and their families. Once I arrived to the event, I walked the red carpet for the first time ever and walked right behind the evening's host, late night talk show host Seth Meyers, who was very funny.

Entering into the event provided me the opportunity to talk and take pictures with legendary players, such as Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter. I spoke to the NFLPA Executive Director, DeMaurice Smith, who introduced me to the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, Clark Hunt. I was able to spend time with the winner of the Together We Make Football contest, Christian from Oklahoma. Amazing players, such as Aaron Rogers and Odell Beckham Jr. took time out to say hello to me and high five me.

When the event ended, I was leaving and I walked right next to actress Mariska Hargitay from the show Law and Order and asked her if she would take a picture with me and she was so nice! The night was so exciting, but I knew I better get some rest for the big moment!

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis is the recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award at the 2015 NFL Honors.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, one of three Walter Payton 'Man of the Year' finalists, makes as big of an impact off the field as he does on it.
