    Not that it matters much to us, but who do you think it'll be? Doesn't look like the kind of consensus we're used to seeing recently.

    I'd guess they'll give it to Demarcus Ware, even though I don't think he really deserves it.

    Willis has had a huge year, but is a rookie on an awful Niners team. Urlacher had a great year, but the Bears really **** the bed this year. Cromartie is another young guy who wasn't even matched on the other team's #1 all the time (reminds me of Anthony Henry's big year).

    What do you think?

    It should be Jared Allen, without question, but I doubt he'll get it. A D-lineman with 15 sacks and 10+ pases defensed is unreal. But he plays for a crappy team so it'll probably go to Sanders or Ware. Every game their teams play it seems the TV announcers are lobbying for them.

    If Cromartie gets a single vote then I think they should just disband the award. That he's in the Pro Bowl over Asomugha is a pretty epic oversight.

    Madden was lobbying for Sanders in tonight's game.

    I don't care much, but it'd be a real stupid choice.

    I'd love to see Vince Wilfork get it. He's really stepped it up this year. But I really, really doubt that'll happen. It'll probably go to a big sack guy like Jared Allen or Mario Williams.

    Willis definitely gets DROY. Even if the Niners suck.

    I have a pretty good feeling Sanders wins it. Shame.

    Brady - Offensive MVP

    Sanders - Defensive MVP

    Moss is not even close in my mind. We might even have HFA if he hadn't come (with Stallworth as the star).

    I think Sanders will get it. I hope Vrabel gets a vote or two though.

    It's Sanders in a run away, and yes, he can cover well for a safety.

    I'd go for Mario Williams, personally. And I think Willis is more deserving than Sanders, who has been terrific.

    Willis I think should get it, but he won't because they won't give it to a rookie. Willis is a tackling machine and probably within the next year or two will be considered the best in the league. I would also give Allen, Ware or Sanders consideration too, but if Patrick Willis played on a better team and got some national attention, it would be him hands down.
