What a great year. i was on this guy big time but this was the play i wanted to see year in and year out.

his play makes troy expendable i think.

He's playing like Troy was 5 years ago. I agree with you, his play makes it seem like we can have Safeties that can play 15 - 20 yards deep every time and not have to rely on one guy for our secondary.

Timmons is the most worthy recipient. Played every game and played well most of the way through and had some really good games like today. Timmons for Team MVP and Keenan Lewis as Most Improved Player. Carnell Lake is a bad ass DB coach, two years in a row our most improved player has been a CB (at least IMO: Gay and now Lewis).

Heath is the team MVP imo

I like Clark. I thought he was the glue for the D.

Timmons isn't the team MVP. It has to go to Heath IMO. He had a career year and a probowl year and was arguably the best at his position around the league. I would also probably argue Ryan Clark over Timmons as well.

The defense kind of works in pairs. You have the 2 CB's feed off of each other, the 2 safeties, the 2 inside backers and the 2 outside backers etc....Foote had a very solid to great year which helped make Timmons what he was. On the other hand, Clark was without Troy and still managed to do what he does game in and game out. Timmons may have done that with Foote out as well if it came to that, but it didn't.

What I will say for Timmons is that as good as he started to play this year he is something I am looking forward to a lot. He may just be our next big name and have a shot at DPotY down the road.

There are so few players who deserve an mvp honor this year that whoever gets it I'm on board.

I think Defensively, Timmons stood out with Clark being a close 2nd.

Offensively Ben had a good year going until the injury and is still the best player out there. Wallace was just disappointing...he had hands of Dwight Stone this year for the most part and I dont think we get a chance to extend him here.

Timmons had a Hell of a year, but Heath should get MVP, something he would've NEVER SNIFFED if Arians was still here.

I still say Heath gets MVP but just for comparison purposes on defense:

Timmons - 100 tackles, 4 sacks, 3 INT's, 8 passes defended and 1 forced fumble
Clark - 93 tackles, 0 sacks, 2 INT's, 9 passes defended and 2 forced fumbles
Foote - 104 tackles, 4 sacks, 0 INT's, 1 pass defended and 2 forced fumbles

So either of those 3 could be in the argument for defensive MVP if nothing else.

I can't agree with this, but I'll agree with MVP for this year.

Lmao Timmons a hell of year. No would love to see where he is ranked by people that do this for a living. I would bet no better then mid pack That's the high end. Him even being considered a team MVP is a huge reason were not in the playoffs because he's not very good. There many ilb's in the league much better then him he played 2 good games all year

As much as people rag on foots he is far better down for down performing his responsibilities. Timmons has couple of those plays that make him look good but he fails far more at his duties. No one I. The league has talked or is talking about him. There are so many ilb's that out perform him it's not funny

Agreed - the only starters that IMO played at or above the standard were Heath, Timmons, Foote, Clark, Starks and Foster

A really disappointing season - particular underperformers were tha WRs and Woodley

Ben was pacing for one of his best years until the injury. but you can't deny the way he ended the season cost us big time. He missed throws, started taking coverage sacks again, and developed a knack for throwing the big mistake at a crucial time.

Would give MVP to LT, but he probably won't get it.

Timmons was great man, and Clark was fucking great too... But I think #83 gets the crown. I was very happy to see 92 turning it on and showing that he can still be a force. I hope he has a full healthy season with us next year. The man when healthy is a great contributor. Woodley, giant dud this season. Wish I heard his name once and a while... Man, this season flew by.

Timmons stepped it up this year, but definitely Miller or Clark this year. Big Ben was headed for a career season, but more injuries hurt him.

After a number of blah years, it's about time that Timmons showed what he's capable of. Hopefully we'll see more of the same.

But the MVP goes to Heath, who has delivered at a high level every year.

Or it's the other way around: his poor year allows us the option of signing him long-term. But do we want him? And will he take less than Brown to stay?

He's had at least two great years as a starter sandwiched around a year where he had to play all four LB spots as well as occasionally safety-ish positions. He started slower than Woodley, but I'd say he's been beyond a solid contributor.
