National Football League beware: Marlon Humphrey is a bit angry with you.
Let's offer some context first. Back on Thursday, the NFL announced that New York Jets linebacker Quincy Williams had been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.
That was hardly surprising, as Jets fans are kinda crazy and they are always voting and putting their players in places where they simply don't belong in.
Even without telling you a single thing about Williams' performances throughout the month of October, you might still be dubious about the pick. Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey seems to feel you.
Expressing his thoughts about the (wrong) pick, Humphrey published an Instagram story in which he wrote "I'm not hating but someone had 4 interceptions in October...," referring to teammate Geno Stone.
Humphrey has since deleted that story, but Jake Louque was quick enough to capture and preserve it for eternity.
Stone, just in case you have been living under a rock (pun intended), leads the NFL in interceptions with five. Let me repeat that: leads the NFL in interceptions with five.
The backup-turned-starting safety of the Ravens is coming off matching a record achieved by Baltimore's Living Legend Ed Reed: snatching the most interceptions clad in Ravens threads through the first eight games of the season, per NFL Stats.
Was Williams bad throughout October? No! Was he better than Stone? LOL.
Williams (per Alex Smith of SNY) finished the month with 45 tackles, six tackles for a loss, two sacks, and one forced fumble. Stone intercepted four passes (which by themselves would lead the NFL on that front), deflected four more passes, and completed 15 tackles.
The Jets have a large, rabid fanbase that would do whatever it takes to put their players in such places, and the New York market is always going to be atop the eye-grabbing cities out there getting more attention than it deserves.
Good thing chips are won by the players on the field, no matter where those venues happen to be placed, be that Maryland or the Tri-State area.
