I should have done this last week when Alex Smith was Offensive Player of the Week.

For week 2 Chris Jones was Defensive Player of the Week. A 3-4 DE with three sacks is insane. Add 2 FF and an Int. If you want proof that PFF is clueless, they don't list him.

Kareem Hunt wins a big one. He's the first rookie to win Offensive Player of the Month since Mike Anderson in 2000. they only others are Barry Sanders and Edgerin James. 

On a side note, Ryan Succop won for Special Teams.

Not an official award, but recognition. Alex Smith is starting to be seriously considered as the best offensive player in the league.

Note that Benroth is a goat this week.

Not exactly an award, but recognition. 538 is a premier statistics analysis site. They are saying this is the best team since the Super Bowl Team in 1971.

This may be hard to digest, but Smith is having one of the best starts to a season of any quarterback in NFL history. In almost every major offensive category — passing completion rate, passer rating, adjusted yards per attempt and interceptions — Smith ranks among the best. 

He's 4th after P Manning '13, Brady '07, Culpepper '04 and before Rodgers '11 and Warner '00 and Matt Ryan last year. Four MVPs on just this list.
