Thats right, 8 time pro bowler and former defensive rookie of the year himself Brian Urlacher thinks the honor this year should go to none other than Kiko Alonso.
“Kiko should win it” were the words straight out of his mouth while also adding “He’s athletic. He can rush the passer. He’s got great coverage skills with those picks. He can hit. He can run. He’s everything you want out of a middle linebacker.”
Brian Urlacher is one of the biggest defensive names in football so when he tells the world that he thinks Kiko Alonso deserves the defensive rookie of the year award you fucking listen to him!
One of the most interesting things to me is that if Kiko does win it then somebody please tell me how the defensive rookie of the year did not make the Pro Bowl? I have previously shared my disappointment and disgust with Kiko not making the Pro Bowl roster before and it is something that I am seriously going to have to get over. It is hard enough for a Bills fan as it is but to watch Alonso get snubbed the way he did should bring shame on the entire NFL.
I for one am with Brian Urlacher on this one, but even if he doesn’t get it I am proud to have him on my team. For a second round pick he has exceeded the expectations of almost everyone and it wont be long before he is the most respected captain in Buffalo Bills history. Good luck Kiko! Myself, the entire Bills nation and Brian Urlacher are rooting for you!
