NFL 2018 Week 9: The Good, the Bad, and the Fugly IDP Edition…Oh Josh Norman

This was a week that had its distractions: you know time falling backwards, mid-term elections and oh yeah, Josh Norman realizing he was the outmanned (more on that later), but always the defensive units provided us with good, bad and fugly.

Here we go:

The Good

Danielle Hunter, Defensive End, Minnesota Vikings

There are not enough superlatives to make you understand how good…nah, great, Danielle Hunter was in Week 9.  Yes, the Vikings defense as a whole has been head scratching inept at times.  But not this time, and not this defensive end.  Hunter was the good.

Stats: 9 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 fumble recovery

The Bad

Sean Lee, Linebacker, Dallas Cowboys

Stop me if you have heard this before, Sean Lee is injured.  And that is bad.

Sean Lee is the motor that makes the Dallas Cowboys’ defense work.  Don’t get me wrong, they have Jaylon Smith, and rookie Vander Esch who are serviceable, but don’t be fooled.  Lee is the heart of that defense.

In the Monday night game against Tennessee, Lee injured his hamstring and will miss 4-6 weeks.  And that is bad.

The Fugly

Josh Norman, Cornerback, Washington

Is this what happens when a “star” recognizes he has (1) lost a step, (2) is over matched, and/or (3) yeah you are kind of a jerk.  You didn’t see?  Look here.  

That is fugly.
