Maniak Monthly Awards-Sept. 2018

By • Oct 9th, 2018 • Category: Uncategorized

While the usual suspects are looking strong for a playoff run, a couple of teams have found their way out of the basement in this first month.

The Lincoln Mammoths have struggled ever since their move from Denver, but the addition of rookies Alvin Kamara and Cooper Kupp brought some life last season, and it has carried over to a 3-1 start.  The offense has been explosive, and is perhaps an elite QB away from being a serious threat for the title.

Over in New England, the Thunderbirds have also started 3-1, after a nearly complete makeover of the team.  Adding Tom Brady through a trade with Springfield has lifted the offense, and the late free agent acquisition at TE, George Kittle, has been one of the better pickups.  Right now, it looks like everyone has a chance in that division, but New England’s fans have to be excited about their team’s prospects.

Here are the awards for the first month of the season:
