Individual awards don't mean d*ck in a team sport.

It's all about who's hoisting the big silver football in February. That's the only award I care about when it comes to football.

I just want him to at least win DPOTY because 1) he deserves it and 2) it will mean Ed Reed didn't win it!

Btw, James Harrison is going to kill you in your sleep for your typo in the thread title. :lol:

Harrison was actually 4th with three votes. He was the only defensive player who received any votes which may bode well for his chances of securing the DPOY.

I'm okay with the voting because this has always been a QB award with a few RBs sprinkled in...it's also meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

James Harrison will take a SuperBowl please.

01-02-2009, 03:53 PM
I will be happy if he wins DPOTY. I knew all along that he wasn't going to get MVP unless he broke Strahan's record. No matter what happens the guy is going to be a difference maker in the playoffs, and ultimately that is all that matters. Can't wait for the playoffs to get started.....I'm tired of all these meaningless bowl games.

Below is PFW's take on the race. I dont see how the 'steady, efficient play' of a fish-armed QB beats season-long domination by a man among boys.

1. Colts QB Peyton Manning — Looks like he’ll join Brett Favre and Jim Brown as the only other three-time MVPs since the award began in 1957.

2. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson — Six fumbles in December (nine overall) hurt him, but what a remarkable start to his pro career. Peterson became just the fifth player in league history to gain 3,000 yards in his first two years.

3. Falcons RB Michael Turner — He may not get a single first-place vote, although he deserves at least a couple. Imagine if Matt Ryan had an average back — we probably wouldn’t be talking about Ryan as Rookie of the Year and the Falcons would not have made the postseason.

4. Dolphins QB Chad Pennington — His steady, efficient play guided perhaps the greatest one-year turnaround in recent history.

5. Saints QB Drew Brees — Wasted his 5,069 passing yards, 16 short of the most yards ever in a single season, on a Saints team that would finish at the .500 mark. Sean Payton needs to do Brees a favor in the offseason and assemble a better defense.

6. Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams — No running back or receiver had more TDs. He scored all 20 of his in an 11-game span.

7. Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware — Twenty sacks is quite a feat, but it’s a toss-up between Ware and James Harrison for Defensive Player of the Year. Missing the playoffs hurts Ware’s case.

8. Steelers OLB James Harrison — No player made more impact plays on defense than Harrison. Whether it was stockpiling 101 tackles, making 16 sacks or forcing a league-high seven fumbles, he wreaked havoc all season long.

9. Giants QB Eli Manning — Not a spectacular season by any means, but he assembled a TD-interception ratio of better than 2-to-1 for the NFC’s highest-seeded playoff team.

10. Falcons QB Matt Ryan — If he continues on this path, he’ll be No. 1 on the list a few times at this juncture in future years.

While the award is fairly meaningless, it's still hard to understand how a guy that dominated so often, and made plays at such crucial times in games, and really produced GAME CHANGING plays all season,.......


In Chadman's opinion, James Harrison & Micheal Turner were 1-2.

01-02-2009, 07:56 PM
Harrison should win DPOY since he was the only defensive player to get votes for MVP.

01-02-2009, 09:22 PM
Peyton can enjoy his MVP award next week all he wants when he fails to lead his team to victory tomorrow night.

I have a feeling the Bolts pull out a win.

JAR, youre making me dislike Lendale White with that sig. I think they should play that over and over on the monitors in the Steeler locker room. Id like to see James Harrisons face as he is watching that.
