Congrats Andre Johnson you sexy football god.
And McGwire did 'roids...
LOL...congrats to the beast of the Texans. This was a no brainer.
I don't have a source other than some forums, but here is the supposed 2nd team all-pro:
QB: Drew Brees, New Orleans.
RB: Ray Rice, Baltimore; Steven Jackson, St. Louis.
FB: Le'Ron McClain, Baltimore.
TE: Antonio Gates, San Diego.
WR: Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona.
T: Michael Roos, Tennessee; Jake Long, Miami.
G: Logan Mankins, New England; Kris Dielman, San Diego.
C: Andre Gurode, Dallas.
K: David Akers, Philadelphia.
KR: DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia.
DE: Trent Cole, Philadelphia; Julius Peppers, Carolina.
DT: Darnell Dockett, Arizona; Haloti Ngata, Baltimore.
OLB: Brian Cushing, Houston; LaMarr Woodley, Pittsburgh.
ILB: David Harris, New York Jets; Jon Beason, Carolina.
CB: Nnamdi Asomugha, Oakland; Asante Samuel, Philadelphia, and Leon Hall, Cincinnati (tie).
S: Brian Dawkins, Denver; Ed Reed, Baltimore, and Nick Collins, Green Bay (tie).
P: Andy Lee, San Francisco, and Donnie Jones, St. Louis (tie).
Congrats Mr. Crushing.
Way to go Dre! Like there was any doubt.
Here is the link of all the winners.
I cant believe they put OLB of 3-4 grouped with 4-3 OLB. Ware and Dumervill will get the most votes, surely do the sack numbers. Very interesting Brian Cushing had the 3rd most votes in OLB only behind glorified DE's
So Willis, Harris, and Beason are all more highly regarded than Ryans?
I like how Andre Johnson was a footnote.
"Look at all these great All-Pros!
Oh, and also Andre Johnson."
I don't like it either, but you can't discount the skill of guys like Ware and Dumerville because they play a position that generates more sacks/less tackles. As long as 3-4 guys can dominate stats like that, they will get the nod unless a 4-3 guy is simply outstanding (And hey, Briggs and Dansby have both been to probowls at least in the 4-3 OLB role.)
But really how good of a season can 4-3 linebacker have in order to crack the top two. does he have to wait for a bad year in sacks in order to get some recognition.
I mean really, how good of a year would Brian Cushing have to have?
Well since he pretty much led the league in terms of being a 4-3 OLB this year, I'd guess that. I don't think he has to wait for a bad year, but in order to crack the top two, he will have to rack up huge stats across the board to overshadow a guy who got 17 sacks in a season.
Also, if the Texans (miraculously) had a #1 Defense and Cushing had the same year as he had his rookie year, I can say that he'd probably crack the top 2.
Congrats to the best wide reciever in the game today.
uhh yeah...I love what Meco brings to the table but all of the above mentioned guys are certified beasts.
How is phillip Rivers better than Schaub, Winning I suppose
Congrats to Andre and a good Showing for Brian and Demeco
Glad we took Okoye over Willis...Kill me...
Kinda glad Mario wasnt on that list. He got ito the probowl on name recognition, rather than a good year. Hopefully this lights a fire in him
Pollar got a vote in Safeties. Way to go Bernard!
Must have been a Ravens fan who was happy to have Welker out lol
Really, just name recognition? He was 4th in the AFC in sacks .5 behind Mathis who had a bunch less tackles. He was 1st in the AFC in QB hits, 4th in the AFC in QB pressures and played the run very well. Did he have a down year in some ways, yes but overall be became a well rounded DE this year and was in the top DEs in the AFC. It wasn't just reputation.
He's the best receiver in the NFL...HE BETTER be on the list!
