2014 M Awards: Favorite Football Player

deangeloMemphians sure do love themselves some DeAngelo Williams.  It does not matter that he last suited up for the Tigers in the Motor City Bowl in 2005 (he did set a Motor City Bowl record for most rushing yards that game).  More importantly which second place finish hurts Peyton Manning more, this one in the M Awards or the one he had in the Super Bowl? 

DeAngelo Williams, First Place: 38%
Peyton Manning, Second Place: 33%
Michael Oher, Third Place (Tie): 8%
Donte Moncrief, Third Place (Tie): 8%
