Eagles' Dawkins is a finalist for Walter Payton Award as NFL Man of the Year

Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown thinks news like Brian Dawkins' selection as a finalist for the Walter Payton Award as NFL Man of the Year should get more publicity.
"It's only fair that good guys get recognized, and not always the bad," Brown said yesterday.

Dawkins will be facing off against another finalist, Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, in Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Arizona. The third finalist is Vikings center Matt Birk, whom Dawkins and the Eagles played in the first round.

"It means so much to me," said Dawkins, who was named to his seventh Pro Bowl this season. "I know that there are so many guys that have won that award that I look up to, one being Troy Vincent [who won when he was an Eagle, in 2002], and how much he means to me. The award is named after someone that I respect tremendously. To know what it stands for, to know that I've been blessed with so many abilities, and so many things off the field, everything I do is from my heart. To receive this award would be a tremendous blessing that I would cherish."
