    Polamalu is good, but I wouldn't trade him for Matthews, or Williams.

    Troy is a very special person and player. I am glad we all have a chance to watch this once in a life-time person.

    Similar to what Brady said when asked about what he thought about the MVP - Individual awards in team sports make no sense. Michael Vick's answer, on the other hand was, "I'd vote for me... Put my name on it".

    Personally, I think Matthews should have gotten the DPOY, but congrats to Troy. He's been passed over for it many years, and better him than someone like Harrison.

    Thanks to everyone for congratulating Troy. He's a really wonderful part of our team and we're proud to have him in the B&G.
    Congrats to Clay for making the final cut also. He's got a big fan base among the Steeler fans.

    It went to the wrong one.
    Should have been Clay Matthews the 3rd.

    I'm gonna stick by my team with my stubborn Packers pride.

    Polamalu is a class act in the league. Plays his heart out every down, humble, and a likable guy (off the football field). Now that I have time to get over my initial disappointment Clay didn't get it, congrats to Troy, he deserves it.

    I've never seen a team's defense change when one player is missing. When Polamalu isn't in the Steelers are a completely different team.

    The voting was very close. It was deserving IMHO.

    Was definitely rooting for CM3, and Packers fans know very well the impact this KID has when he's on the field, much like Polamalu, but I can't say it's not deserving, because Polamalu is CLEARLY the most impactful player on their D.

    We suspect that Clay not playing would have the same impact (counting from the Miami game). And Clay has played injuried for most of the season. But everybody saw the difference when Polamalu wasn't playing. They were an average D without Polamalu.

    Oh No! I thought Clay won it when I logged off here yesterday! I thought he had an outstanding year and he deserved it. I'm glad Troy got it if Clay didn't. He too plays hard every down. We can be proud Clay was considered for such a high award in only his second year. Hopefully Clay shows em in the SB who the real DPOY is!

    I am a Steelers fan, and if McCarthy doesn't get coach of the year after dealing with all of the injuries it will be a travesty.

    That is very decent of you to say - thanks. I don't expect it, but we'll see. (Seems to be the year of the Packer Snub.)

    Troy is a true class act.....in addition to being one heck of a player. I was lucky enough to meet him a few years back and he's one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. One awesome person for sure.

    I was hoping Clay would get it but no shame losing to Troy. Clay will get his share of individual awards no doubt.

    I think it's going to go to Rheem Morris. But yea, I think Mike Deserves it too.
