WRONG ROUTE AWARD: Cam Newton

The Carolina quarterback caught some heat this week for responding to a reporter, who happens to be a woman, asking him about a teammate's route-running. "It's funny to hear a female talking about routes," Newton said. There was a slight hitch in Newton's delivery. But once this controversy fades away and is no longer worthy of a blog post, the quarterback will come out of his corner and learn that comments like this simply won't fly. (Those are all routes, by the way.)

EXECUTION AWARD: Jay Cutler

Cutler took some heat last week after he lined up at wide receiver on one play and stood at the line of scrimmage with his hands on his hip the entire time. "Sit there, don't get hit, don't touch anybody, don't move," Cutler said of his instructions for that play. "I feel like I executed that one," he continued.

HOME CROWD AWARD: L.A. Chargers

The football team, which relocated to Los Angeles this offseason, played a home game last week and were soundly booed by the crowd which was overwhelmingly there to cheer for the visiting Philadelphia Eagles. Many said it seemed like an Eagles home game. It would have been more obvious had they booed Santa Claus.

ISN'T IT IRONIC AWARD: NFL

After Washington receiver Terrell Pryor revealed that he had racial slurs yelled at him during a game last week, the NFL stated there's no tolerance for racial slurs — at a Redskins game. Someone get Alanis Morissette on the line and let her know that this is what irony truly looks like.
