An amazing season just seems to get better and better; every time it looks like our run might be done, we come up huge.
With only two games left, I think we have the frontrunners for 3 of the major season long awards.
Harbaugh is a lock for COY.
Alex Smith, for all his faults (he certainly showed his lack of accuracy, but he's playing extremely smart, not making any mistakes and making throws when he needs to), is a great story after everyone gave up on him. Some could make the argument for Tebow, but he hasn't really come back from anything--he just started. Smith is going to finish with 3000 yards and around 20 TDs to only 6 INTs and I can't really think of anyone better suited for Comeback Player of the Year.
Lastly, Aldon Smith for DROY. Von Miller gets all the hype because he was the higher pick and plays for the darling of the national media Denver Tebows, but Aldon Smith now has more sacks and really only started to get playing time in the 4th game this year. He's coming on very strong at the end of the year, and his beast mode performance against PIT on national TV is going to help.
