It wasn't even close - the last time I looked, Deshea was at 62% while Reed was 28%

CONGRATULATIONS, DESHEA!!

Wow. At this point don't we need to count how many weeks we DIDN'T have a player at least in the mix? Good stuff...., and well deserved.

This is a very pleasant surprise. I really thought Ed Reed would easily win this week. Congrats to Deshea. Now let's go out and get another defensive player of the week following Sunday's game.
