Unlike most sites and the fishwraps, we at BucsNation consider ourselves fans of this franchise. As a result, this site is as much about you as it about us.
So for the first time, BucsNation will allow you, the Buccaneers fan, to decide who are our award winners for 2012.
Next up - the Offensive Player of the Year award. Here are your finalists:
Josh Freeman, QB - Set the single season franchise record for passing yards (4,065) and touchdown passes (27) while capturing the franchise record for career touchdown passes (78). Freeman was quarterback for the most prolific scoring team in franchise history (388 pts).
Doug Martin, RB - Set the rookie record for rushing yardage by a rookie (1454 yds), scored 11 rushing touchdowns and finished with 1,926 total yards - 2nd most in franchise history.
Vincent Jackson, WR - Caught 72 receptions for 1,384 yds (2nd most in franchise history) and 8 touchdowns.
Mike Williams, WR - While not having as many catches or yards as Jackson, Mike Williams rebounded from a subpar 2011 by leading the team with 9 touchdown receptions and with impressive numbers in receptions (63) and yards (996). Williams even completed a pass on a trick play that almost resulted in a touchdown.
