Hell forget per snap just on field performance.....and when smith was on the field he out performed miller and was never benched for blowing assignments. I still think Justin smith was a lot better as a defensive MVP than Suggs. What did Suggs get 1 sack in the last 5 games and did not much at all in the playoffs wheras Justin smith made game saving plays and excelled in almost every game as was more valuable vs the run and close to him as a pass rusher and drew coverage so our other pass rushers could be singled up like Aldon smith.
Justin Smith definitely deserved defensive MVP over Suggs. It is not even close. That is pure bias all the way, and I really don't know what else to say about it.
I could call the people who voted for them "dimwits", but I don't think that would change anything.
The thing is, I think Von and Aldon are equal talents. That one was a toss up, so they went with the player who started more games.
