    We have all seen what the Colt defense is with him, and without him.

    I think he deserves it!

    I would have said Kerney, but I can see Sanders too.

    I thought they might give it to Haynesworth, but Sanders is very deserving. Vrabel has been our best defensive player, but nowhere close to being the best in the league this season.

    Well deserved.

    Good to see Vrabel getting a couple of votes. Whoever voted for Cromartie obviously gets his NFL in highlight form.

    that was homer.

    Vrabel 77 tackles 12.5 sacks 5 FF
    Sanders 96 tackles 3 sacks 2 INTs
    Kerney 62 tackles 14.5 sacks 5 FF 1 INT
    Allen 64 tackles 15.5 sacks 3 FF
    Ware 84 tackles14 sacks 4 FF

    personally, it would be Ware vs Sanders for me

    earlier in season i thought it was Sean Taylor or Haynesworth but 1 passed away. RIP. and the other was hurt.

    Without Sanders out there the Colts D gives up tons of yardage both on the ground and in the air - The Colts are 9-7 at best if Sanders went on IR in Week 1.

    He is that good and meaningful to that team and deserves the honor - Period.

    A Colts D without Sanders is equal to a Patriots O without Brady

    what makes me a little mad is Ware only got 2 votes(as did Vrabel) but Cromartie got 3..for what..getting 10 INTs? Samuel didnt really get votes last year did he? Bailey came in 3rd i think with 10 INTs while both were lock down and started all year

    common, if you think Vrabel deserved it over Sanders you are a ridiculous homer. Vrabel was great this year but Bob Sanders definitely should have received DPOY.

    :confused:

    I have no problem with the honor but this is complete hyperbole.

    Indy's defense has improved its tackling in both the CBs and LBs since last year. The offense has proven to be able to move methodically if they so choose. Maybe they lose a game or two that they otherwise win, but I can assure you that they are a 12 win team without Sanders.

    First of all, "Dissed" is not a word. I don't know where it came from, but I wish it would go back there. It's an embaressment to our culture...think about it.

    Secondly, the only one who can say they have been disrespected is the person attacked. If Vrabel says he was not disrespected, then nothing anyone else can say will change that.

    "Dissed"...:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Well, to be fair, they are 10-3 over the last 2 seasons without him, and that's quite close to 9-7.

    Wasn't. I just want total Patriot domination across the board and nothing beats a good homerism on a Monday after a bye week. So basically I was being a dick.

    Why do so many of YOU OPPOSING fans care what we think? :bricks:
    It's our forum we can feel and say what we want. I agree that Sanders was deserving. But if some of us think otherwise, I don't see a problem with that opinion either.
