The 2012 NFl Awards will be announced tonight, Saturday, February 2nd, at 9 pm EST on CBS. The Aerys NFL staff recently made their picks for the awards on Aerys Offsides, which you can view here. We may not be one of the 50 members of the Associated Press priviledged enough to vote on the actual awards, we’re still pretty awesome.
The Green Room’s 2012 NFL Awards Picks

The Green Room’s Super Bowl Picks
Kristine – I think the Niners are simply a better team than the Ravens, though it’s certainly hard to discount how well the Ravens (and Joe Flacco) have been playing throughout their playoff run. I always make my picks on where I would put my money and I see the dynamic play of Kaepernick, the Niners running game and defense and Jim Harbaugh as being the better choice. It will be a good game and very close – likely coming down to one play late in the 4th quarter – with 2-3 point margin. Niners 27 – Ravens 24
Sydney - 49ers
