Defense! Defnese! Defense!
The NFL has awarded Oakland Raiders Linebacker Kirk Morrison with AFC Defensive Player of the Month for September. Morrison would probably say it was team effort that won the award, but his three interceptions and team leading tackles might say otherwise.
Morrison has definitely come into his own as a defensive leader. He's the new linebacker of the NFL who can hit, cover and change offensive game plans.
The Oakland Raiders Defense of last season was a run stopping force with its weakness being in the secondary. Hello 2007, sure our secondary has given up some big plays but they're also making big plays, and Morrison is a huge part of it. With the offense eating up the clock with its running game, our Defense finds itself fresh and hungry come the second half.
Congratulations Kirk Morrison and the Oakland Raiders Defensive Unit. You've been recognized as a force to be reckoned with in this NFL season.
