A complete toss up

Posted: December 30, 2008 in NFL, postseason awards

The three man weave for the 2008 Defensive Player of the Year is tight. Stank-0 mentioned the 3 contenders previously. Let’s break down their cases.

DeMarcus Ware: In his favor: 2008-2009 sack leader. Dallas’ D line differencemaker. A rising force. Knock: His team flamed out down the stretch and missed the playoffs.

Joey Porter: In his favor: High sack total for 2008-2009. Leader/heart and soul of the revamped Miami Dolphins D. Knock: Won’t shut the h**l up!

Ed Reed: In his favor: Widely regarded as the best safety in football. Ball hawk. Defensive playmaker. High interception total for 2008-2009. Broke his own record for the longest T.INT (interception returned for a TD) Knock: Plays on an already good D so he has to outshine Ray and TSuggs to get some buzz.

Stank-0’s gut tells him that Joey Porter will snag it for no other reason than the turnaround factor.
