I think the Texans do have the D.R.O.Y., but it isn't Williams... I don't know how anyone could think Demeco Ryans isn't the front runner for that honor...
58 solo tackles (leads the NFL)
15 assists (top-30 in the NFL)
2.5 sacks (15th in the NFL)
Hell, forget D.R.O.Y., he's working on Defensive MVP...
you must be drunk to think any texan is going to win defensive mvp. espescially a guy with 2 sacks. and it's probably not hard to lead the league in tackles when teams are running it down your throat all day.
2.5 sacks through 8 games is not at all bad for a guy that plays middle linebacker... And how can you possibly say that a kid who leads the league in tackles as a rookie is not at least a contender for DROY... Tell me, who do you think is more deserving?
Oh, and BTW... In 2004, Jonathan Vilma won DROY with the following stats FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR:
77 solo tackles (Demeco is on pace for 116)
31 assists (Demeco is on pace for 30)
2.0 sacks (Demeco is on pace for 5.0)
Both play MLB...
I believe he said defense MVP, not DROY
OK, well last year Brian Urlacher won DMVP from the MLB position... Let's look at his stats:
97 solo tackles (Demeco on pace for 116)
24 assists (Demeco on pace for 30)
6.0 sacks (Demeco on pace for 5.0)
Now, I realize the Texans' defense is pretty bad, and the odds are slim of Demeco winning it because of that, but from a statistical point of view, he'll have better stats than last year's DMVP, and probably will have better stats than any other defensive player this year...
