I know that both Vanden Bosch and Finnegan deserve props for having tremendous seasons, but there's no doubt that entire defense flows through Haynesworth. He forces teams to focus on blocking him, which weakens blocks on the edge for Vanden Bosch, who helps brings the pass rush that forces bad throws to Cortland Finnegan. I certianly don't want to take away from the other two, but I would support Albert Haynesworth as an MVP candidate considering his impact on that defense.
