Vontaze Burfict needs to get some votes for Defensive Rookie of the Year.




There were a lot of the so called experts who thought he did not have the speed or discipline to play in the NFL, must less start on a playoff team's defense. This kid was left for dead after the NFL Combine and no team wanted to touch him.

Burfict has posted a sack, a couple of fumble recoveries and a 127 tackles leading the BENGALS and will probably slide into the MIKE position next year depending on what the team does with REY MAUALUGA who himself has had a great second half to the season once LEWIS called him out. I think both of these kids respond well to challenges and MIKE ZIMMER knows how to push their buttons to squeeze every drip of talent he can out of them. I know there are some who thinks REY should not come back but I think he has showed us what he is able to do when healthy and ZIMMER on his ass not accepting anything but the best from him. With that said I still think the team needs to draft a LB pretty early with one of their two 2nd round picks or earlier depending on how the draft unfolds.

I know that I am a BENGAL fan but the entire NFL needs to stop and take notice of what BURFICT has accomplished this season. The NFL usually loves these kind of stories and I believe that he should get some votes if not flat out win Defensive Rookie of the Year.

He deserves It and more important he has earned it!
