i dunno about winston here, as i thought duane brown was having the better year... but cushing and joseph were definitely the right picks.

Yeah, I see Clayton as more of a football insider/newshound than an analyst.

Duane Brown should have made the team along with J. Joseph & B. Cushing he is mauling DE's this season especially in the run game.

Didn't Duane Brown go the whole season without giving up ONE sack?!? I could be mistaken and can't seem to find the stats anywhere.

I also find it hard to accept MJD making it over Ray Rice. Rice had a phenomenal season and although MJD had more rushing yards, I always thought it was touchdowns that won you games and Rice was significantly better there. Rice also had quite a few more receiving yards.

Arian should have gotten a look too considering what he did in only 13 games. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

I don't have an issue with that pick. When folks played the Ravens there were multiple threats their defenses had to address. Rice was arguably the main one. But they also had very legit threats in A. Boldin and Torrey Smith. And those threats made things easier for Ray Rice the same way that Andre Johnson's presense makes our running game more effective.

When folks played the Jags, who beside MJD do you have to worry about? IMO, no one. So every team targeted stopping him. Seeing that he could lead the league in rushing while being the primary focus of every defense the Jags faced... that gives him the edge over Rice IMHO.

Brown did have a hell of a year .....


MJD over Rice or Foster .... I can see it as he lead the league in yards from scrimmage and did it on a horrible offensive team while Rice and Foster have a whole lot more help around them.

I cant go Foster over either Rice or MJD because of his missing the start of the season. Still a great year for Foster .....

Mangold at Center is just a joke. Brown not getting the nod over Joe Thomas is a joke. I understand guys like Barwin and Reed because they had pretty steep competition ahead of them. I would like to see them pick the squad with 3-4 and 4-3 in mind. Have 4-3 ends and 3-4 olb's as well as 4-3 olbs. DT's and nose tackles.

Chris Myers should have made it along with Brown. For a guy we as fans maligned pretty badly for 2-3 yrs, Myers was just ballin this year. Fantastic year for Duane and Chris Myers. Congrats to both even if they didn't make it.
