    When will we know the finalists invited to the ceremony? I’m thinking there will be 4 this year, but Winston, Petty, and McCarron should definitely get invites. Lynch, playing sub-par competition to say the least, needed to go undefeated even with the stats. And if your team lost more than 3 games…sorry, your stats are nice, but it’s all about the Ws and Ls in the end. To me, you need to have played good competition and have your team come out of it with 2 or fewer losses to be a finalist. JMHO
