I had some spare time, so I put in about 75 votes for each.

Time well spent for something good for the city !!!

Wow Army, I thought my 10 votes were a lot! Big props to you, I'm sure your voting had a saying in the final results! :sure:

Anywho, awesome game and well deserved winners. I know Carson and have watch him joyfully over the years, but even I was amazed by how pinpoint accurate he was! Brilliant game vs. a good D! What can I say about CedBen? The dude is a beast and put fear and regret in his former teammates! Ced the Pred should easily win Comeback Player of the Year as well! :bengal:

This is the reason I don't feel bad about voting more than twice and why I think it's time well spent:

With Palmer and Benson's wins FedEx is making a $2,000 donation to the Safe Kids coalitions in Cincinnati to support pedestrian safety improvements. Safe Kids USA is a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children.

While I have no idea if the 75 votes I put in made a difference, as I didn't see the final count, I simply think anyone giving money to a good cause for Cincinnati is worthy of the 10-15 minutes it took me to do that. Here's to hoping we have more opportunities this season to do it again !!!

this is nice, but i am wondering one thing, have there ever a week where both winner is on same team like this one?

Good question. I don't remember any.

Did Rudi and Carson win it together in 04 or 05? I know they were both winners but don't remember if it was for the same week.
