this is not a dis.
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.
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.
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.
Can the OP please explain how Vrabel was insulted?
How dare they give the award to the best defensive player in football?
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.
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.
Especially since there is no such thing as a "Dis"
Are you being facetious?
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.
tr.v. dissed, dissĀ·ing, dissĀ·es Informal
To show disrespect to, often by insult or criticism: Example Mike Vrabel was dissed by not winning the DPOY Award."
Well, it's a really stupid opinion, for one.
I certainly was.
what's wrong with that word? you seriously seem to have a problem with it and I'm a little curious as to why. Most common expressions are slang that at one point in time evolved out of some other words....just curious
Informal...as in uneducated. Many words of the uneducated now make it into Websters...maybe they're trying to be PC. But don't ever think it's an "acceptable" word.
Try telling your boss he "dissed" you. Doesn't cut it in the professional business world.
Alright. It just didn't come across that way in print without the smiley.
I'm sure there are a few "Fred Taylor was dissed with the pro bowl" threads over there.
Thanks for the tip Mr Wagnall.
so only words used in the professional business world are acceptable? That's sort of limiting on an internet massage board no?
Because people who use it in situations where it was never used before. For example... "You looked at me the wrong way and you're dissing me". Also many other instances where people claim to be "dissed" when they're not. The incidence of people being disrespected has NOT increased but the incidence of people claiming they are "dissed" has.
That is why it makes me sick. Pretty good reasoning too....satisfy your curiousity? I'm curious as to what you "thought" my reasoning would be.
Can I ask a question, how many of you thought Bob Sanders was great before the end of last season? It just seems like some media creation to me. They started saying he is great at the end of last season and in the playoffs and now everyone says he is a God.
I think the guy is good but its like one of those Emperor's New Clothes situations. Have you always thought he was this good? Or is it one of those things you have heard so often that you assume it be true but are not entirely sure why?
