Lavonte David makes All-Under 25 team

Lavonte David was named one of the best under-25 players. But we all know he's not actually good, right?

Hey guys, did you know Lavonte David was really good?

I know, right. It's a shock. The guy's only played two years. He was a measly late second-round pick. He's undersized, came from junior college initially -- how could he possibly be good?

But man, I guess he is. Because people keep saying he is. I can't see it, though. He's much too small for that. His fellow players and his coaches certainly know he's not good, because they didn't vote him to the Pro Bowl even though the fans did. And now some silly writers think he's one of the best under-25 players.

David certainly deserved Defensive POY consideration; he piled up 145 tackles, seven sacks, five picks, 10 pass deflections, 20 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles.

This love affair between David and the media has to stop. He's not a Pro Bowler, guys. Naming him an All-Pro or an All-Under-25 player won't make him any better. Stats? Stats are for losers.

I mean, seven sacks? That's not nearly Pro Bowl worthy. Just look at Ahmad Brooks and Terrell Suggs!
