Seattle Seahawks fans from around the world voted, and now we have our official winners for the first annual Gullies. I even did a podcast with Brandan Schulze discussing the award nominees and eventual winners, which you can listen to in the audio player above this paragraph. If you don’t have time or interest in hearing me waffle on about my own awards show, then don’t you worry ‘bout a thing!
There were eight categories to vote on, and clear-cut winners across the board. I only saw one surprise result, which was Jadeveon Clowney finishing third in the Seahawks DPOY race, but otherwise this went according to script.
Without further ado, here are your Gullies winners, representing the best of the Seahawks’ 2019-20 season!

My only surprise was Jadeveon Clowney finishing 3rd in the DPOY race, especially since Quandre Diggs only played a handful of games (admittedly making a big impact when he did play).
I want to thank everyone for their input, their votes, and for being responsible human beings and not stuffing the ballots to rig the outcomes of this super serious awards ceremony.
All of the winners can slide into my DMs and collect their trophy, and we’ll be doing this again next year!
