We’ve saved the best for last BillsMafia. The final Maffie of the 2013 season is for Buffalo’s Most Valuable Player.
Fans who participated in the vote spread the nominations out. Players, coaches and even the Hammer’s Lot (Most Valuable Parking) earned nominations for MVP. Who finished with the most votes?
Buffalo’s MVP: Fred Jackson
Fred Jackson finished with 48 percent of the vote to win this year’s Maffie for MVP. Kiko Alonso and Kyle Williams split votes and finished second and third respectively. Jackson also won Buffalo’s Offensive Player of the Year.
In 2013, Jackson gained 1,283 total yards while averaging 4.3 yards per carry. Whenever Buffalo needed to gain some tough yards, Jackson was called upon.
Although Jackson is 32 years old, he believes he can still play 3-4 more years.
“I confidently believe I can do that. Especially with the workload being split between C.J. and I. That definitely gives me the opportunity to be out here three or four more years and competing with these guys and getting this thing turned around. That’s the number one goal, getting this thing turned around and giving this city something to be excited about and that’s what I want to do before I’m out of here.”
If Jackson continues to perform the way he is, no Bills fan would object to Jackson playing into his late 30’s. If anyone can do it, it’d be Fred Jackson, Buffalo’s Most Valuable Player.
