NaVorro Bowman is THE MAN!

That wasn't a defensive play. The award under consideration is not for "special team player of the year", it is for "defensive player of the year".
I think he will

I love Bowman, hope he wins it.
I don't like the way they do these awards, its ridiculous. They should give an award for the best players at each position, Picking one guy is silly when there are a dozen guys who deserve recognition on D this year. Quinn and Sherman are deserving, but so are Keuchly, Calais Campbell, Bowman, Mathis, Tamba Hali. I would just give out 11 awards for best the defensive players in the NFC and the AFC. DPOY is lame!
OK, but he has to share it with Brock.

Brock made the initial play on the receiver to make that stop and pick 6

So reminiscent of the goal line Plummer and Woodall hit and fumble run back for 6 against the Bills
Quinn has 18 sacks, let him wreck havoc this weekend and he can have the award.

In the discussion ? Possibly.

But as to who should win, if it is not Robert Quinn with his 18 sacks + 7 FF's + 2 FR's, then it should be Bucs LB'er Lavonte David. David has 137 tackles + 6 sacks + 2 FF's + 1 FR's + 5 INT's.

Quinn is having an outstanding year. He's the guy I actually wanted us to draft in 2011 with that 7th overall pick. To me he should be DPOY. With that said, NaVorro Bowman definitely stepped his game up, but he would have to make multiple plays like the one he made last night to get votes as an ILB.

On another note, I can't wait until 2014 so Aldon Smith can show Quinn who the true sack leader is .

We may be witnessing a great duel, similar to what happened in the 1980s/early 90s with Aldon Smith playing the role of Reggie White, with all of the great pass rushers out there now (Robert Quinn, Von Miller, Geno Atkins, JJ Watt, Suh in Detroit, etc).

After last night's game, NaVorro Bowman (+15.2) and Patrick Willis (+14.6) are now ranked 1 and 2 in our ILB rankings. #49ers
Both rule. Bowman is younger and it shows.

Slo-mo version of the pick-6 played to the tune of Journey's "Lights". So awesome.
