I did not expect Luke to win but he is clearly a transcendent player. He had a signature game late in the season to help win the Division. DPOY isn't just about stats. You have to break records to win DPOY on a losing team as far as I am concerned. Last year we heard the same nonsense about Bobby Wagner and Clay Mathews was saying Casey Hayward was robbed. Hayward was put on IR because of a Hamstring Injury after just 3 games and 8 tackles. Bobby Wagner had a quality season but garnered no consideration for awards this year.

Colts fans think Mathis should have won.

 

49er fans think Bowman should have won.

 

Seahawk fans think Sherm or ET should have won.

 

Rams fans think Quinn should have won.

 

Texan fans think Watt should have won.

 

Panther fans think Kuechly should have won.

 

 

Kuechly won,  so a lot of the fans of those other teams are b1tching out loud about it. 

 

If Quinn won,  then most of those fans except for the Rams,  would be b1tching...  etc etc.

 

Since Kuechly was awarded the honor though,   we don't have to worry about the "WHAT IFs".     Then fug the fans of other teams. 

 

 

Kuechly: 2012 DROY

Kuechly: 2013 DPOY

Kuechly: 2014 DPOY. (upcoming)

The guy was the best LB in the league with 2 rookie DTs in front of him, a banged up CJ, and a group of cast-off defensive backs. Without Luke Keuchly this isn't even a top 20 defense much less a top 2.

I think a lot of people view the Carolina D as a unit. A bunch of blue collar players that work hard together. No particular player that could be put on an Island to shut down the other team's best offensive player. Perception is sometimes reality.

i really don't think it would have made a lot of waves if luke hadn't won.  there'd be some griping on this board but i don't think anyone would actually be truly pissed and bewildered like a lot of fans seem to be.  there wouldn't be this nationwide "what the hell was that" moment if he hadn't won.

 

it's more of a shock to me because the guys he beat out in bowman, quinn, thomas, etc. did put up what could be considered better numbers.  i know it's a totally intangible, un-quantifiable thing but luke passes the eye test in a ridiculous way and that may have put him over the top.  his management of the defense and play diagnosis is off the charts.

Panther fans think one of the above should have won


Fify.

I've never seen a bunch of "fans" discount their own players the way some here do. Kuechly absolutely deserved and earned this award. The kid is a stud and is already the best MLB in the game. Give him his props and fug those other guys.
