Good day for NFC South LBs

A couple of quick notes on a pair of NFC South linebackers who have been honored Wednesday.

First, a day after not being selected to the Pro Bowl, Carolina’s Jon Beason has been named the NFC’s defensive player of the week. Beason recorded a sack and forced a fumble in a victory against the Giants.

Next, Scott Fujita was voted as the 2009 New Orleans Saints Man of the Year. That makes Fujita a finalist for the leaguewide Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, which will be given out during Super Bowl week.
