Should Arizona Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby be named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year?

Yes – if you ask Karlos Dansby. Dansby explained further to

"Nobody’s outplayed me,” he said. “I got stats in every category. Leading the league in batted down passes, more than cornerbacks. Interceptions, two for touchdowns. I’m up in there, man. Solo tackles, you name it. Sacks, six-and-a-half. The numbers just jump off the charts, and I’m having fun. It goes all to the guys around me, because they’re playing at a high level. It makes me raise my play to a different level."

The University of Auburn product is having one of his best seasons in his 10th NFL campaign. Dansby has a team-leading 117 tackles and has added 6.5 sacks and 18 passes defended. He also has four interceptions and two defensive touchdowns. Dansby also registered four tackles and had a key interception with 2:06 remaining to seal Arizona's 17-10 victory over Seattle last Sunday. That win kept Arizona's playoff hopes alive.

He's been making important plays all season. Dansby is destined for the Pro Bowl and may be adding NFC Defensive Player of the Year to his resume as well. That's how tremendous he's been this season.

First there's an important game to play on Sunday against division rival San Francisco.

First things first.
