This compiled with Eddie D and Haley being snubbed for the Hall, all the bad calls on us this season... I just feel like giving up on the NFL. We are easily a top five all time franchise and get about as much respect as the Browns.
You may not be upset that Bowman isn't DPOY, but I am. If they were going to vote for an inside linebacker, it's absolutely ridiculous and pathetic that someone other than NaVorro Bowman received those votes. If Mathis would have gotten it, I would have been meh about it. He had 19.5 sacks and voters love stats like that. But for another inside linebacker to get it above Bowman, that's ridiculous.
We will win it all next year. And I'll take a notch further: we WILL repeat the following year and win a Super Bowl in our own stadium, on our own field, in front of our own fans.
