Ok it is time to announce the Player Awards for the Baltimore Ravens 2012 season. The awards are as follows:

Most Improved Ravens Player Award – This award goes to Paul Kruger. Paul Kruger stepped up his game in 2012 and became the leading pass rusher for the Baltimore Ravens. With Terrell Suggs out for most of the season, Kruger led the Ravens with 9 sacks. It is no surprise that he got a huge deal from the Cleveland Browns in free agency. Paul Kruger’s Career Stats

Ravens Rookie of the Year Award – This award goes to Justin Tucker. After what happened with Billy Cundiff previously, acquiring rookie kicker Justin Tucker was a huge blessing. Tucker showed he could handle the pressure and was 100% on kicks that were over 50 yards going 4 for 4! He was 100% on PATs and 90.9 % accurate overall on field goals. Justin Tucker’s Career Stats

Ravens Offensive Player of the Year Award – This award goes to Joe Flacco. Joe Flacco threw for more yards in 2012 than he did in any previous year and he ended up with 3,812 yard passing. Although there were some inconsistencies during the regular season this may have been due the scheme under former offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Flacco flourished under Caldwell in the playoffs. The Baltimore Ravens organization obviously believe in him since they gave him a lucrative contact making him the highest paid player in the NFL! Joe Flacco’s Career Stats

Ravens Defensive Player of the Year Award – This award goes to Bernard Pollard. Bernard Pollard was our designated hitman on defense. When I think of the slogan “Play like a Raven” Bernard Pollard was the first name that came to mind. Pollard led the Baltimore Ravens defense with 98 tackles. He also hit the hardest on the team no doubt. Bernard Pollard’s Career Stats

Ravens Leadership Award – This award goes to none other than Ray Lewis for the second year in a row. Ray Lewis will probably go down as the best on the field leader to ever play the game. You all saw what happened when he came back from injury and announced his retirement. The team stepped up and went on a Superbowl run under his leadership. Ray Lewis’ Career Stats
