Hope you cheer up a bit before the holidays. One day left. Like I've said before, save your rancid comments for someone else because they are lost on me.

For the record, I don't sit in the endzone, and even the best TIVO can't catch action that's not captured by the network cameras - and I don't know about anyone else but one of the things I've noticed over the years is how much action in the secondary that you can see live that you can't see on TV. From what I've seen live and from what I can see on TV Dunta is playing as good or better than Glenn this year. Dunta regularly faces #1 WRs since he and Glenn don't follow a particular WR from strong to weak side.

I go to games and I watch them again on DVD or tape when I get home. Just passing on observations. If what I post bothers you for some reason, please feel free to use the ignore feature, otherwise don't read into posts what isn't there.

Merry Christmas

Enough of beating your chest that you have the best view and that no one can possibley see what you see. I can watch my TVO and slow motion plays all day if I want and pretty much capture everyone on the field. Don't go telling me I can't see Babin or DRob or Glenn on each play.
put down the haterade son, it's getting to your brain

But, his demeanor seemed on the edge of being arrogant, and Bob Allen (whom I don't always agree with) at one point asked him to "in the future, don't refer to yourself in the 3rd person)
to everyone thinking along these lines, i have a little advice on how to percieve dunta and his third person reference. if i remember correctly, in the interview in question, the stimuli to dunta's comment was gary walker coming up behind bob allen and dunta during the interview and interjecting something like "if he don't go to the pro-bowl, who should?" or "you can see him in hawaii". sorry im not gonna dig up the exact qoute but im confident it was along those lines. well after g-funk made the comment, dunta responded in an impromtu fashion by saying "dunta robinson for pro-bowl".

well anyone who has been around athlete's or been an athlete (i fill both criteria) knows good natured confidence v selfish arrogance. if gary walker hadn't said anything im sure the interview would have been a bunch of ambiguous "we're staying focused/getting ready/excited about a win" comments by dunta and his million dollar smile. but since g-funk said something, it brought the "locker room" atmosphere into the interview and dunta made a good natured, confident statement that has the trapping of an arrogant statement superficially.

the biggest, most telling sign of a selfish athlete is exposed by his on field play. football is one of the best "character filters", if you will, and i haven't seen anything that remotely ressembles in a "me, me, me" player in dunta. not only does he do his job (very well might i add) but he is emerging as a defensive spark and quite possibly a leader, with a few more seasons under his belt. both positions on a team are rarely filled by selfish individuals. just my take, tryin' to defend my boy d-rizzle, and make sure all the "p.c."-ness of bob allen's response isn't taken seriously at all in skewing peoples views.

I agree with a lot of what you are saying. I was also curious about the context and set up of his remarks but I really didn't care enough to go back and read about it. It's much ado about nothing as far as I'm concerned.

Dunta doesn't appear to be a me-me-me guy. He rarely or never showboats after big plays. He gives his all when others have already quit (see the 4th quarter hit he put on the fullback at Denver). Capers and Hoke have talked about his great work ethic. He's a talented young player who is emerging as a leader. I'm glad we have him.

Yo, just leave the guy alone. Yall are like the paparazzi or something, i h8 people who make a big uproar over nothing. What dunta said does not affect any of you in anyway. So the guy may have an ego, so what!?, who cares!?! As long as he goes out every Sunday and makes plays, i could care less what he tells the media, just as long as he doesn't become the next TO. Im happy

Go Dunta!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris McAlister is going to the Pro Bowl over Dunta. McAlister's stats are 36 tackles, 1 INT, and 7 passes defensed. Dunta has 76 tackles, 6 INT's, and 13 passes defensed.

Don't misunderstand my previous statement. I am just so proud of how our team represents themselves on field and in the media that I want them to continue to do so.
I am all about DR. He totally rocks and so does the entire team. His performance speaks for itself.
Modesty speaks for everyone else. Look at Andre Johnson. Bottom line.....I support them 150%, if I didn't, I wouldn't have PSL season tickets .

Default Pro Bowl and All Star games are not true to old form!

These just who has the name...Trotter getting in while Kearse wasn't? that is clearly a mistake but he is in. Duanta is clearly one of the best CB's and being tested every game more than the established star CB's. He has played will just like Big Ben in Pit. He should be a Pro Bowler but not this year BECAUSE HE IS A Rook! Not right! It should be about the season at hand but it is all about what kind of fame you have and stuff like that! Jamie Sharper is one of the best LB's but he isn't a pro bowler yeah right!!!

Anyway, D Rob should be in!!!

agree with ya man, its all about past accomplishments. Sharper had an awesome year last season but he was overlooked, also because our team isnt play off calibur or have a winning season. I'm suprised A.J got in !
