Why is there no hype about Willis DPOY

I think the reason why Ram is getting ripped on is because he doesn't know what the f**k he's talk about.

Because tackles aren't a "sexy" stat unless it's something really crazy, he's only leading by 14 tackles. I know that's great and all but not for him to be considered DPOY just because the voters are retarded.

Having tons of INT's or Sacks are a more "sexy" stat just because it's a turnover or a sack basically kills a drive. Sharper has like 3 INT's returned for TD's or something, if Willis had more TD's and stuff he'd def be a runner up, but since he's a tackling machine it's not recognized as much for the DPOY.

Charles Woodson is hands down the Defensive Player of the Year

The man has simply been dominant this season.

No disrespect to Willis or Jared Allen.

Jared Allen should have won it when Bob Sanders got the award. Sanders is so overrated.

7.5 of his 12 sacks came vs green bay who gives up the most sacks in the league. IMO, he shouldn't even be considered.

IF we finished with a record of 12-4 Willis would get it for sure.

That comment is just stupid. You should go to a Rams forum. What kind of username is ram9er anyway?

But Willis isn't a lineman or a defensive back. Linebacker is not exactly a position that racks up sacks and INTs, especially a inside linebacker. If he was a OLB, then yeah he should probably have more sacks.

No s**t
Jairus Byrd and Darren Sharper have had just as productive seasons, why aren't they mentioned? Charles Woodson has had one of the best seasons that a CB has ever had. It should be him hands down.
I would like Willis to win, but I don't see him winning it this year. He should at least get some mention.

I was just about to say that... And once the media grabs a hold of someone, so does all the those in the NFL... Allen is on a good team too, so that definitely helps...

Like all awards you have to be on a fairly dominant team or play in NY (Revis) to get mentioned. It has nothing to do with being a MLB, Lewis has won while playing on a dominant team.
That being said, Woodson is having maybe the best year a corner has had in the last 20 years, if he doesn't win it it's highway robbery.

I think this is the only time I've posted this where it actually holds some validity:
