    Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month, the NFL announced Thursday.

    In four games this month Porter has amassed 14 tackles, including 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

    This is the second time Porter has won this award, but first since 2000.

    The last Dolphins linebacker to win the award was Robert Jones in December 1998.

    Wow, that's an honor. What is funny about that is the NE game where he got 4 sacks was in September, so he got this for his performances against San Diego, Houston, Baltimore and Buffalo.

    he is just playing lights out man no doubt if he keeps this pace up he will break the all time sack record that would be just awesome considering the year we had last year already alot of positive talk around miami after last year.

    I truely believe his spot in the Pro Bowl is already locked in. 10.5 sacks for a linebacker through 16 games would likely get him in. He did that in just 7 games. He is likely to finish with around 20 sacks. That should probably give him the DPOTY award.

    Indeed. If he keeps forcing and recovering fumbles, he will be a lock for DPOTY. An INT or 2 will only seal his spot.

    Jason won it in 2006. Bob Sanders won it last year. So it would be 2 out of 3 years.

    When we trade JT I was pissed and said who's going to make up for the sacks? I stand humbled, RIGHT ON JP what a force.

    It just shows, when you put a player in the right position how well he does. Cam and Capers used Joey incorrectly last year. I was not a big fan originally of the Porter signing. Lots of us felt that way, it was just a ton of money for a player with some ???.
    Porter played out of position. Now with him rushing the QB, it is paying off. It reinforces that many of us were originally wrong about Porter and what a dunb@#&$ our coaching staff was last year!
