The local media voted Ravens cornerback Chris Carr as the Media Good Guy and named defensive tackle Haloti Ngata the Most Valuable Player.
The Media Good Guy award is given out to the player who makes himself regularly available and provides insightful responses that helps reporters throughout the season. Past winners include: Bart Scott, Derrick Mason, Terrell Suggs and Jarret Johnson.
"I understand the fans want to hear the truth, and I try to never lie," Carr said.
Ngata, who is going to his second Pro Bowl, is considered one of the top defensive players in the NFL this season. He was second on the Ravens in sacks (5.5) and sixth in tackles (65) despite being double-teamed on nearly every play.
"That's pretty cool. Thank you, guys," Ngata said after being named MVP. "I felt like this year has been different with my pass rush. I feel I got a little better there, and hopefully I can continue to improve in that game and just get better. Hopefully I can be around Baltimore because I love being here."
"I love the guys here -- and not you guys [reporters] as much," Ngata added with a smile. "But I love the fans. Thank you, guys."
