    I don't know how accurate this is because it hasn't been reported on many sites as of yet but word is that Jared Allen is Sports Illustrated DPOY edging Ware 113-111 according to the Minneapolis-Tribune.

    I wouldn't be surprised in the least if he did.

    Probably would've picked JPP, but congrats if he did win it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the AP DPOY the only version anyone really cares about?

    Ware may go his entire career without this award. Incredible.

    He got snubbed a couple of times and now he may never get one unless he produces and we win.

    Has to be the worst team to get a dpoy.


    And it's becoming clear you need to make a name for yourself being a showboater(Allen), thug(Harrison), or ****head(polamalu) to garner enough attention to win this

    Can't really complain about the choice. I probably would've voted for Terrell Suggs.

    After finding out how much Allen hates the Cowboys. All I can say is I hope you choke on it Allen.

    Top eleven players in the defensive sack category, eight first rounders, Barwin is a second, Avril is a third, and Allen is a four.

    Any predictor we are missing on Barwin, Avril, or Allen?

    Has to be a snub - an intentional one, right? Obviously there were no other real candidates and the voters just keep bending Ware over a table and ramming it to him.

    when it happens once, you wonder. Now this time Allen is a valid choice over the last time when they chose Harrison and was wrong in all ways.

    How was it wrong in all ways? Ware had more sacks, but Harrison had 101 tackles to Ware's 84, and Harrison had an INT and a safety, which Ware did not have. Also consider the Steelers were a 12-4 team and the Cowboys were an 8-8 team. Of course you could argue Harrison had more support around him, but production that goes toward a winning record is ususally given more weight.

    The reality is that in 2008 either Ware or Harrison were worthy, and choosing one was not a snub to the other.

    Suggs should have got it. He really stepped up as a leader on that Ravens' defense.

    The one shortcoming with Allen is it can't be claimed that he was key in elevating the team to success.

    You can make the same argument against Ware.
