There's no doubting the impact that Kam Chancellor has on the Seattle Seahawks' defense.
After all, the hard-hitting safety is the "boom" in Legion of Boom.
Chancellor proved it again on Monday Night Football, stripping the football loose from Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson late on what would have been a sure touchdown reception to preserve a 13-10 Seahawks victory.
That paved the way for Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett to interrupt Chancellor's post-game interview and yell, "Pay him! Pay him! Pay him!"
Bennett has a point.
Before Chancellor held out missing the first two games of the season, the Seahawks fell to an 0-2 record. Since he's been back, they've been 2-0.
Despite players like Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas in the Seahawks' secondary, Chancellor seems every bit to be the anchor of that defense.
The Seahawks might want to give Chancellor the money he feels he deserves.
