After each season every member of the Philadelphia Eagles votes who they think are the MVPs of the team on offense, defense and special teams. The Eagles have announced who was chosen as team MVPs for the 2011 season.
Offense: RB LeSean McCoy
McCoy had a great 2011 even while his team was struggling. He was named to the All-Pro team, setting single season franchise records in total touchdowns (20) and rushing touchdowns (17). McCoy was a lethal weapon for offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and company, despite not being fully utilized early in the season. Even withMcCoy’s early work load, he still managed to gain at least 100 yards in six games. He was integral player in the Eagles’ offensive attack and should be the centerpiece of it next season.
Defense: DE Jason Babin
Babin spent much of his time in the faces of opposing quarterbacks throughout the season as he racked up a team leading 18 sacks. Like McCoy, Babin was also named named second team All-Pro. I’m sure this battle for the MVP was a little bit close vote given Trent Cole’s stellar season.
Special Teams: Colt Anderson
Colt Anderson might not be a household name to the casual fan, but the die-hard members of Eagles Nation know that Anderson was fantastic on kick coverages. Anderson received the award despite having only played in 12 games this season. His season was cut short by a knee injury suffered at Seattle in Week 13. Anderson’s worth was proven when the Eagles’ kickoff coverage unit dropped from fourth to fourteenth after Anderson’s injury.
