|Player of the year: Jon Ryan. A season that didn’t even come close to fulfilling expectations comes with the unexpected – the punter as player of the year. But this selection shouldn’t surprise anyone. In a season of inconsistency, Ryan wasn’t. He averaged a franchise-record 46.2 yards on 88 punts – the fourth-highest total in club history, and most since 1994. Ryan’s net average of 38.7 yards tied Tuten’s club record from 1992. If that’s not enough, Ryan also was the holder for Olindo Mare’s club-record run of 21 consecutive field goals, and completed a 42-yard pass on a fake punt.|
