OK. Here's how this will work. I'll put up a nominations thread, and give people 24-48 hours to propose nominees. All you have to do is post the nominee; if you want to provide an explanation, too, feel free. I'll choose the best candidates, based on quantity AND quality of support, and then put up a new thread for voting. = = = = The first category is BEST DEFENSIVE PLAY. Any play in which the Patriots D was on the field is eligible.
