    LMAO @ not having DPotY coming from the team with the #1 defense and arguably up there with the all time greats like the 08 Steelers, 06 Ravens, 02 Bucs, 00/01 Ravens, 85 Bears. Get out of here, if Richard Sherman or Earl Thomas don’t win this award has lost all credibility.

    ROY was WR Keenan Allen of San Diego. Both Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas deserved consideration for DPOY, as did Robert Quinn.

    Interesting about Mathis, I thought if the sack argument was to be used then Robert Quinn would win it. Also think Navarro bowman is deserving, best LB in football by a lot

    Luke Kuechly was the best all-around defender.

    Whenever I’m having a bad day I know I can get a laugh by reading all the Seahawk fans comments, they are so funny, knowing nothing about football yet playing it as if their team has been dominate for decades and is a football dynasty. Always gives me a good chuckle.

    Seattle fans are so sensitive.

    But . but. But. We decided not to have a defense this year. Thanks green bay. ..

  10. weekendatberniemadoffs says: Feb 1, 2014 5:47 PM

    As a Panthers fan I will admit this. Kuechly was phenomenal this season, but Thomas Davis was just as important, excelling at both strong and weak side lb. Folks don’t realize this because Carolina doesn’t play many nationally televised games, but TD could be the most athletic and fastest lb in the league. Sherman and Thomas are the best at their positions, but conventional wisdom makes you wonder if they’ll lose votes to each other. JJ Watt was stellar, but look at the Texans season. With that being said, whether it’s 100% deserving or not, I’d be surprised if Quinn doesn’t win it.

    Is that about right? Did I miss anything?

    Robert Mathis doesn’t even deserve to be in the top 3 maybe not even top 4. I would personally but any of these guys ahead of him; Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Robert Quinn, Luke K, and Lavonte David.
    Robert Quinn almost had as many sacks (half a sack less) as him but the stat that means more is that he had way more tackles for loss!
    Luke K lead the Panthers to a top five ranking!
    Richard Sherman was the top Cornerback this season in every stat, Mathis didn’t do that.
    Earl Thomas is the most valuable part to the Seahawks defense.
    LaVonte David would walk away with the trophy if he wa playing for a playoff team; third in tackles for loos, tied for fifth in picks, fifth in tackles, 17th in sacks, and as far as I know the only Will linebacker to call the plays for his defense and make the adjustments.

    ———————————–
    Yeah – cause the league made it easier to be a running back these days compared to being a receiver, were you get PI calls in your favor if a defender breathes on you. smh.

    Pro football focus:

    Top cb’s

    1. D. Revis
    2. J.Hayden
    3. B.grimes

    7. R.Sherman

    factual stats, not opinions

  15. jjh1982 says: Feb 1, 2014 6:22 PM

    Choke artist of the year goes to the Detroit Lions for having the division handed to them and then fell apart

  16. whiplash013 says: Feb 1, 2014 6:25 PM

    Grimes should have gotten comeback player of the year. Ranked 3rd best CB by PFF after a major Achilles injury that sidelined him for all but one game in 2012.

  17. finsphan says: Feb 1, 2014 6:30 PM

    Not sure how grimes was not mentioned

  18. finsphan says: Feb 1, 2014 6:33 PM

    “Richard Sherman was the top Cornerback this season in every stat”

    Might want to check that again. Int’s is not the only stat for cb’s

  19. ravenswhat says: Feb 1, 2014 6:37 PM

    Ron Rivera wasn’t even a top 5 coach of the year. Hilarious. Bellichick, chip, Harbaugh, Pete all did more.

  20. eternalserenity21 says: Feb 1, 2014 6:45 PM

    Wow, ok. If we are not considering Earl Thomas II or Richard Sherman, it should be Robert Quinn…. What a joke PFT, stop hating.

  21. beerbratscheese says: Feb 1, 2014 6:56 PM

    Every Seattle Seahawks fan: ” A Seahawks player needs to win every award because their the Seahawks”. It’s no wonder I’m pulling for the Broncos tomorrow…and I hate the Broncos.

  22. rmfp1978 says: Feb 1, 2014 7:24 PM

    Quinn should win it Mathis had a half a sack more but Quinn had way more tackles and pressured the QB non stop. Being a Rams fan I can say that with all honesty it was good to see some good for once out of a team that has struggled deeply for over a decade and a half. Clowney would be a nice addition to the defense

  23. unbridledsexy says: Feb 1, 2014 9:44 PM

    KC had 10 pro bowlers and not a single award. I thought at least Jamal Charles would get a little respect from one of the yahoos in the media.
