Re: Timmons - Team MVP
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.
