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).
