Call It deadline for best defender

Just looked back at the latest results in our Call It poll on the NFC South’s best defensive player. At the moment, we’ve got a tie.

Carolina linebacker Jon Beason and New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma each have 32 percent of the vote. There’s no law saying we can’t have a tie, but I’d prefer to see a clear-cut winner.

If you haven’t voted, please do so soon. I’ll do a post on the winner Tuesday morning, shortly before we unveil our Power Rankings of the top 10 defensive players in the NFL. Let’s set the voting deadline for 9 a.m. Tuesday.
