    Not an announcement yet, but at least one survey of opinions--Link

    AJ and Mario universal. Only one OD nod, but 4 of 5 for Steve Slaton.

    I can't believe one of those guys voted for LeRon McClain!! He's not getting fullback snaps, he's become a RB! The guys voting should know that he's only on as a FB because of his role on the team at the beginning of the season, when the ballots were created.

    That's why Mike Alstott always got the nod. He was a fullback in name only. The vast majority of his runs were out of a single back set.

    Man, Haloti Ngata's getting snubbed. He'll be the best player not to make the Pro Bowl.

    It amazes me that the dude that didn't vote for Slaton voted for OD. Go figure?!? I mean he obviously watch some of the Texans game if he voted for OD, so how could he put LT in over Stevo?

    Agreed. One of the RBs or Matt Ryan will get it, but Clady ought to get rookie of the year.

    Ron Brown over Steve Slaton is literally criminal.

    Same could be said of Antonio Gates over Owen Daniels (AND Dallas Clark!)

    Wow, one of the best defensive front 7 I have seen in awhile:

    Defensive end Mario Williams, Houston
    Dwight Freeney, Indianapolis Robert Mathis, Indianapolis
    Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, Tennessee
    Kris Jenkins, New York Jets Shaun Rogers, Cleveland
    Outside linebacker James Harrison, Pittsburgh
    Joey Porter, Miami Terrell Suggs, Baltimore
    Inside linebacker Ray Lewis, Baltimore James Farrior, Pittsburgh

    No kidding. How'd you like to have to line up and try to run on that?

    Ouch.

    And the secondary (less Michael Finnegan, er, I mean Cortland) isn't bad either.

    Leach not being named the started at FB is the biggest snub for any Texan.

    Wow. The AFC has one of the best lineups I've seen. Could you imagine a real team? Peyton throwing to Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall and Reggie Wayne.

    I'm mostly in awe over the Defense. I don't think a single team, or even the NFC pro bowl team would be able to score over 10 points against them if they were REALLY playing hard.

    DE Mario Williams
    DT Albert Haynesworth
    DT Kris Jenkins
    DE Dwight Freeney
    OLB James Harrison
    MLB Ray Lewis
    OLB Joey Porter
    CB Nnambdi Asomugha
    FS Ed Reed
    SS Troy Palomalu
    CB Cortland Finnegan

    That Defense is downright scary.

    I'm so stoked about Mario getting selected too.
