SB Nation's NFL Regular Season Studs and Duds for 2008

Over at SB Nation's general blog, we football writers have posted the results of the 2008 Regular Season Studs and Duds Awards. We did one for the Mid-Season about 8 weeks ago, and not one "stud" from the mid-point received a regular season award.

Below are the selections for the awards, voted on by our SB Nation football bloggers. The percentage of the vote they received is next to their name. We also added a new category (Was Once a Dud, Now a Stud) which works as our "Comeback Player of the Year" award. So, without further delay, here our SB Nation's 2008 NFL Regular Season Studs and Duds:
