Myles Garrett takes controversial 23 DPOY

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has won the defensive player of the year award for 2023, and at least one of his peers isn’t happy about it.

Garrett finished the season with 14 sacks for a Browns defence that led the league in defensive efficiency, yards allowed per game, and three-and-out-rate. He also finished second in the pash rush win rate despite facing the third highest double-team rate.

Meanwhile, Steelers TJ Watt posted on Twitter, “Nothing I’m not used to.”

Browns GM Andrew Berry defended Myles Garrett’s win, “I know the focus is on sack numbers,”Berry said. “That really doesn’t tell the whole story. … He played at a really high level for us down the stretch.”

Myles Garrett a worthy winner

“I thought it should have went to Myles, if not me, and I said that publicly,” Parsons said. “It’s just simple as that. Look at the Titans game alone. No offense but, T.J. played the Titans, did you see two tight ends following T.J. Watt? Did you see they’re following him all across the line? People can say whatever they want, but at the end of the day the film does not lie. His presence is way more dominant that T.J. Watt.”

Parsons finished third in the voting behind Myles Garrett and Watt.
