Has there ever been so much backlash about an AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award? Has there ever been any backlash about any Special Teams Player of the Week awards?

The football world seems to be up in arms about Scobee’s 59-yard game-winning field goal beating out Patrick Chung’s blocked punt that led to a quick touchdown and blocked field goal that led to an even quicker touchdown.
J. Scobee
Look at some of these critical tweets:

@NYPost_Hubbuch: Yes, Josh Scobee winning AFC STPOW is a complete travesty. Everyone knows 59-yard, game-winning FGs at the gun happen all the time ...

@SI_PeterKing: Patrick Chung had one of the best special teams performances in recent history and lost POTW to Josh Scobee. That’s real smart.
@cbssports: Chung was robbed. Maybe Pats blamed Moss...

@ kjpmacdonald: Absolute crime for Josh Scobee to win AFC Special Teams award over Patrick Chung. Made kicks happen every game. Blocked kicks and punts don’t

@BenVolinPBP: Josh Scobee's GW 59 yard field goal was amazing, but how does Patrick Chung not get AFC Special Teams Player of the Week?

@shalisemyoung: Jags K Josh Scobee, he of 59yd game-winner, beats out Patrick Chung for AFC special teams POTW. not cool.

@hugesunglasses: Josh Scobee, NOT Patrick Chung was named AFC Special Teams Player of the week. LOL

Josh Scobee was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the fifth time in his career.

(Okay, that last one isn’t really critical, it’s from the Jaguars after all, but isn’t it interesting that Scobee has wont he award five times? Sorta interesting, at least?)

All these came from a simple Twitter search of Josh Scobee. And it’s not like we skipped over the pro-Scobee tweets. That one from the Jaguars was pretty much it.

The argument for Scobee might have been that without that kick his team dosen't win and that without Chungs special team play(s) that Pats would have that game by 14+, but yeah Chung should've easily won that award.
