Yanda deserves it. Since the bye week, he's been just about back to his dominant form. He's had a down year, but he's still a top five guard, hands down. Not many guards destroy Suh the way he did. Considering the guys next to him and coming into the season hurt, he played great and got better with every game. He's only had, I think, two games with a negative grade, one of those being a -0.1 from PFF. By the way, he din't get a lot of fan votes at all, so he got in on the coach and player votes. That's telling, to me. On an offensive line full of disappointment, inconsistency, and just plain badness, Yanda has stuck out inside.
Ngata, it's hard to tell. He's had a bad year for his standards, but still better than the majority. His reputation does seal his spot though. He's looked better lately.
Suggs got in on the first half of the season and the past game. He had a bad streak but most defenders in the NFL do. Even Ware, Matthews, etc... I've been hard on him for his leadership and lazy play, but he has played hurt for a month and he's starting to rebound.
Tucker, yeah. He deserves it all the freaking way!!!
Suggs, Ngata, and Yanda have all had down years for their standards, but they still had better years than most players at their respective positions.
