Re: Urlacher named AP Defensive Player of the Year

this year didn't have it's usual stand out performance by a defensive player so I think they just went with the face of the #1 statisticly defense. I am very suprised to see the guy had only 24 solo tackles. I'm sorry but thats pretty pathetic for a leader of a defense whereas our leaders in Marshall and Washington had 77 and 73 respectively and while I really don't care for the guy Ray Lewis had 112 and 125 in the years he won and the other recent lb to win the award in Derrick Brooks had 92. The stats don't really back it up but like I said I think it's just cuz no one really had that stand out year, they just went safe and gave it to the leader of the statisticly speaking #1 defense.

I watched the 2004 Bears and Redskins game and Urlacher was all over the place. Portis would have ripped off a long TD run were it not for Urlacher. But, I do agree he is overrated.

Before this season I was staunchly in the BU is way way way over-rated class but he has had a good year and I am swayed that that he is only marginally over-rated now. I'd still take a half dozen of other guys before him.
I agree, it's not surprising the last time he had a great year was when his defensive line was top notch. He's the kind of LB that needs space to operate in, put a hat on him and you can neutralize him.

I just didn't think he was MVP material, he's a good player but MVP? C'mon.

I just don't get it with this guy, he'd be on my all overrated team.
He is much better this year compared to previous years, and he is now nearly as overrated as Vick.

Plus keep in mind Chicago had like zero offense for almost all year....Urlacher and the defense were on the field constantly. They also manhandled Carolina and held the same Tampa offense the Skins gave up 36 points to, to just 10 points.
