Just like last year, I decided to cast a ballot on the Pro Bowl. Here are my own findings.
Quarterbacks (Pick 3)
Michael Vick (Philadelphia) - Headed for a massive payday.
Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay) - The cornerstone in the frozen tundra.
Drew Brees (New Orleans) - Overcame the Madden Curse.
Runningbacks (Pick 3)
Ahmad Bradshaw (New York) - In spite of his fumbling woes, still chugging
LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia) - showed marked improvement as the main back of the post-Westbrook era.
Michael Turner (Atlanta) - The Burner still blasting opponents
Wide Receivers (Pick 4)
DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia) - He's really fast.
Greg Jennings (Green Bay) - Rodgers' best buddy
Calvin Johnson (Detroit) - Megatron!
Roddy White (Atlanta) - Rowdy Roddy.
Fullbacks (Pick 1)
Ovie Mughelli (Atlanta) - Ensures the Burner gets free space.
Tight Ends (Pick 2)
Vernon Davis (San Francisco) - Best weapon for the Niners.
Jason Witten (Dallas) - Back in good graces with the receiver injuries.
Offensive Tackle (Pick 3)
Tyson Clabo (Atlanta) - doing the road grading for Turner
Kareem McKenzie (New York) - someone's keeping thing clear for the Giant running game
Donald Penn (Tampa Bay) - pretty much underrated
Offensive Guards (Pick 3)
Harvey Dahl (Atlanta) - paving the way for the Burner.
Jahri Evans (New Orleans) - still keeping Drew Brees insulated from the Madden Curse
Josh Sitton (Green Bay) - pretty much underrated
Centers (Pick 2)
Andre Gurode (Dallas) - keeping things afloat for Romo / Kitna
Ryan Kalil (Carolina) - bright spot in an ugly year for the Panthers.
Defensive Ends (Pick 3)
John Abraham (Atlanta) - pass-rusher de luxe
Trent Cole (Philadelphia) - He's good.
Julius Peppers (Chicago) - rejuvenated / motivated in Chi-town
Defensive Tackles (Pick 3)
Jonathan Babineaux (Atlanta) - Didn't he just score yesterday?
Aubrayo Franklin (San Francisco) - San Fran's front 7 is really good.
Ndamukong Suh (Detroit) - He's getting a James Harrison-like rep already.
Outside Linebackers (Pick 3)
Lance Briggs (Chicago) - Monsters of the Midway
Clay Matthews (Green Bay) - Defensive MVP this season, especially during the early part.
DeMarcus Ware (Dallas) - Definitely not the reason why Dallas sucked.
Inside Linebackers (Pick 2)
Brian Urlacher (Chicago) - He's nasty as hell.
Patrick Willis (San Francisco) - Tackling machine.
Cornerbacks (Pick 3)
Asante Samuel (Philadelphia) - He gambles, but it pays off most of the time.
Tramon Williams (Green Bay) - He makes Charles Woodson look even better
Charles Woodson (Green Bay) - He makes Tramon Williams look good.
Strong Safety (Pick 1)
Lawyer Milloy (Seattle) - Why not?
Free Safety (Pick 1)
Malcolm Jenkins (New Orleans) - Being taught well by Darren Sharper
Kickers (Pick 1)
David Akers (Philadelphia) - Of course, having weapons of offense boost his numbers.
Punters (Pick 1)
Brad Maynard (Chicago) - Still one of the best
Kick Returner (Pick 1)
Leon Washington (Seattle) - Worth trading for him. Imagine if the Jets had him AND Danny Woodhead at this point.
Special Teamers (Pick 1)
Courtney Roby (New Orleans) - Just thought out of random
Feel free to debate the choices.
