Very well deserved, indeed. Congrats are in order for 58.

CHARLOTTE – Linebacker Thomas DavisPosted Image has come back from three consecutive season-ending injuries to make an impact for the Panthers defense and he's making just as much of an impact with his charitable work off the field.
Davis has been chosen as the Panthers nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, given annually to a player for his community service activities as well as his excellence on the field.
"It is definitely a huge honor," Davis said. "To receive the (nomination) here on this team you have to be voted on by your teammates. I think they recognize all the work that we do in the community with my foundation. But it's not the reason we do it. We do it because we want to make a difference and impact the lives of children."
With the help of his wife, Davis runs the Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to providing and promoting programs that enhance the quality of life for underprivileged children and their families.
Davis is also a regular participant at team-organized community events and is involved with the American Heart Association, hunger relief efforts, Levine Children's Hospital and Muscular Dystrophy Association.
"Thomas has a very unselfish approach to the people in this community and to this team," head coach Ron Rivera said. "What he's given us in the last few years is a great example of somebody who won't quit. That rings true for who he is as a person."

Proud that he is a Georgia Bulldog and a Carolina Panther. Maybe he can win this one as it is based on true merit and not a popularity contest.

Having TD play in these meaningless games worries me a little. Am I alone here?

There isn't another NFL player that is more deserving of this than Davis. Props to him and his wife for making such a huge difference in the community. Way to go #58!
