Aaron Donald named NFC defensive player of the week

Don’t tell Rex Ryan. This Aaron Donald kid is pretty good.

The Rams defensive tackle was named NFC defensive player of the week, the third time in the last 20 weeks he’s won that award.

Donald had 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble as the Rams improved to 3-1 with a win over the Cardinals.

And since he’s fired up about Ryan’s comments about his talents relative to Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, this week’s game against the Bills could provide more opportunity for big numbers for the dominant interior rusher.

    Remember back when Rex Ryan used to have his coaches trip defensive players running down the sidelines?

    I get a sense that Donald wouldn’t mind doing a reverse of that targeting Rex instead!

    Speaking of which – if Goodell weren’t in the Jets pockets, that stunt would have banned Rex from football for having his coaches blatantly cheat in the middle of the game, tripping and injuring key players… but apparently Goodell doesn’t think that impacts the integrity of the game

    Lucky for Rex he followed Chris Carter’s advice and got a fall guy

    Somebody’s going to get a hurt real bad and I’m thinking it’s going to be Tyrod Taylor.

    Thanks to Wrecks.
