    With all the records the offense has had this year the defense has better than most thought.
    IMO, our most consistent player all year on D has been Wilfork. He is solid and the player that gets overlooked a lot.

    My vote would be for Wilfork or Vrable, with Asante running a close 3.

    I'd go with Vrabel, but Wilfork is up there. I think Vrabel deserves to be mentioned in league DPOY discussions. Granted, he would be one of the outside guys looking in because there are 3-4 guys who deserve it more.

    Wilfork pushes through and Vrabel cleans it up. :)

    Have you guys all forgot about what a great year J. Green is having.
    Remember the Colts game??

    He played the 1st seven games because #93
    was not available. Vrabel, Wilfork, Colvin, all these guys
    were expected to produce.

    J Green gets my vote.

    He would be a starter on most any other NFL team....

    I think Rodney is being criminally ignored here. Vrabel has been magnificent, but Rodney has looked his old self. He and Jimmy Sanders have been a superb pairing.

    Nah, Vrabel comes screaming around from the outside, meets Wilfork at the QB.

    He certainly would. The Pats' D-line has been amazing the past 5 or 6 years, and their depth is incredible with someone like Jarvis Green on the bench.

    Green stepped in for the first half of the season and I barely batted an eye. Great reserve.

    Right on BritPat. I love Jarvis & Vrabs and Big Vince, but Rodney is the glue of this never-say-die D.

    I am going to sound like the true homer I am, but have to vote for the whole defensive unit.. to single out one, will neglect another.. Vrabel, Wilfork, Samuel and Harrison have played outstanding, but there are reasons for this.. the other guys they play with contribute to each of their success.. to exclude one is flat out wrong.
