Andy Reid, Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith Snubbed at NFL Honors Awards

Kansas City Chiefs went winless in the three major awards they were up for Sunday night at the NFL Honors Awards.

Andy Reid‘s work in taking a 2-14 team to 11-5 wasn’t considered enough to win coach of the year. Instead he finished second to Ron Rivera, who led the Carolina Panthers to a 12-4 record and divisional round playoff loss.

Alex Smith also fell short in his bid for NFL comeback player of the year. That honor went to Philip Rivers, who admittedly had a great season for the San Diego Chargers. Only problem: What exactly did Rivers come back from? Playing for Norv Turner? This is a perplexing choice.

Finally, Jamaal Charles finished third (!) in offensive player of the year. The tweet below will give you the details.

Giving Charles’ production, his value to the offense, and the lack of other weapons around him, I don’t understand how Charles doesn’t win this award. Yes, Manning set records, but how could he not have a tremendous season with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, and Julius Thomas to throw to? And only four votes? This is infuriating.

At least Charles won fantasy player of the year.
