Man we're only 2 weeks into the NFL season and we're already back to one of my favorite quasi-features at PSAMP. To refresh, any time a Steelers is honored with player of the week/month/year awards, I honor them (and you!) at PSAMP by MS Painting an unseen picture of said player, usually next to a chickadee or two. So if performance bonuses and national recognition weren't enough of a motivator for the players, then hopefully they want to get put on blast here.
And Silverback would kick off the 2010 season awards. By my count, he's been defensive player of the week at least three times before (1, 2, 3) defensive player of the month twice (1, 2) and defensive player of the year one huge time.
With 11 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery, James Harrison was more than deserving of the award. In my MMCNY recap, I mentioned that only Silverback and Troy Polamalu should've been up for defensive player of the week. I'm sure there were some other guys that played well on that side of the ball within the conference, but Silverback dominated.
And he only had to pay $5,000.00 for the award. Worth it.
