When it comes to nastiness, I think we are talking about something different than Justin Smith. Dude is relentless, but always a humble guy. He is just hard nosed. He isn't nasty to the point of ill tempered. He is just a workhorse. Same as Willis.
Anthony Davis is the person. I remember hearing an interview about him last year where he said he starts s**t just to see Iupati get into the mix to get his back. Dude is always playing tough with an edge of meanness.
Him or Whitner. Whitner gives no f**ks about anything. He is out to hurt people.
I'm just glad we don't have anyone like Ingocnito on our team. Our players play hard, and with an edge, and a few of them with mean intentions, but mostly within the concepts of making plays.
davis is by far the nastiest lineman we have. on defense tho i think we have a few badasses who like to talk. whitner for sure brings the pain any chance he gets and justin smith is a beast out there too, when he gets a sack he lets them know he just got a sack lol
Too much patty-cake at times from Anthony Davis to select him for this award. He can get nasty with some run blocks at times, but too often does not finish.
Larry Grant is actually a good choice, as he does play with a nasty edge... but he doesn't play enough to get the nod.
My votes would go to:
offense = Alex Boone ( my kind of twisted player that will be smiling malevolently as he is whipping your arse or even getting his arse whipped.. just a sick-minded individual! ) defense = Justin Smith ( shows only the cold, dead eyes until he begins to rip through OL... then the eyes show an intense and primal killer unleashed!
