The 2022 NFL regular season is at its midway point. With eight (or nine) games in the books for teams in an eighteen-week season, it's time to take the pulse of the league and hand out some hardware.

After checking in once more on the surprising hire of Jeff Saturday by the Indianapolis Colts, Charles Robinson, Charles McDonald & Jori Epstein devote most of this week's podcast to handing out a set of midseason awards: some real, some made up by the staff.

Of course there are discussions of who should be this season's MVP, coach of the year or offensive and defensive rookies of the year, but the real fun comes when it's time to hand out hardware for best surprise team, biggest tank job & most disappointing year for a Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
