    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.

    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

    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.
