    Surtain's been there before. Are they going by past performance in previous years?
    The total lack of respect for what Dunta Robinson has done his first year is just puzzling. I would really like to hear their explanation for ignoring him.

    He is a rookie on a mediocre team, so he goes somewhat unnoticed.

    To update 84's comparison:

    Nate Clements:
    Games: 16
    Int's: 6
    Yds: 77
    Lng: 35
    TD: 0
    FF: 5
    PDef: 14
    Sack: .5
    Tack: 73
    Solo: 53
    Ast: 20

    As an aside, Clements forced 5 fumbles as a defender (2 of which were recovered) but coughed up the ball 3 times as a KR/PR (2 of which became turnovers).

    Well, Nate Clements at least has better stats than Surtain.
    Surtain seemed to me to be chosen for the name recognition (see Champ Bailey).
