He doesn't get the credit he deserves is what it comes down to
He caused the butt fumble..
That in itself at least earns some votes.
Underrated player, he could certainly be in the discussion considering he outplayed candidate Watt last night and has had a great season.
VW won't win, he won't even place. However, he's playing one of his top seasons this year on his way to Canton. DL's under BB don't pile up stats most look for when voting for a DPOY, but like when Seymour on the Pats, he's had games when he dominated, and didn't get a single sack or tackle.
Interior DL's often have their best seasons from ages 30-35, so he should be around for awhile.
Vince has been great this year, but he's not gonna be a factor in this.
Vince is the man and is the most under appreciated player in the league dude is a force and should get dpoy consideration but he plays a position where he won't get numbers for serious consideration
Vince is on my list of players i would start a defense with
this is watt's to lose
Shouldn't even be in consideration to win, let alone win.
Hes good, I've always said that hes one of the Patriots most important players....but come on .... NO
He's awesome, but no where near defensive player of the year
Vince is an absolute monster. He really controls the O line. So fun watching him play.
But having said that, voters look for the sexy stats. Mainly sacks.
