Which player has performed against all the odds this season?

The Gillette debate of the week centers around finding the player that performed with the odds stacked against them.

US PRESSWIRE

SB Nation's NFL bloggers voted and decided that Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was most deserving of the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year award. Presumably, that would make him a worthy choice for Gillette's debate of the week: Which player has performed against all the odds this season?

On a 2-14 team, that distinction can be tougher to come by, but the Jaguars seem to have one player that perfectly fits that description: Cecil Shorts III.

Despite catching just two passes in his rookie season in 2011, Shorts III burst on to the scene in 2012, becoming only the third different receiver in Jaguars history with more than 900 yards receiving in a season. That was with an injury-shortened season, a less-than-ideal quarterback situation on the team and five games in which he was not in the starting lineup.

So, what say you Jaguars fans? Let Gillette know what you think here.
