    Very cool!

    Does make you kind of feel for Hernandez, now living in the shadow of his former nemesis. Maybe next year... :D

    Should have read this thread before I tweeted OchoCinco congratulating him for his All Pro Team berth.

    Congrats to them!!

    And I've said in other threads, Brady it throwing to two of the top receivers in the game, plus a third guy that had a number of commentators saying he should be a Pro Bowler. The competitors for #4 receiver include two guys who have been very good receivers in the past.

    Also, all five of the Pats' putative when-healthy OL starters have gotten Pro Bowl or All-Pro recognition at some point in their careers, most of them pretty recently.

    I'd guess there aren't a lot of teams in the league that can match the Pats for overall non-QB offensive talent.

    Also, Logan Mankins(!) and Vince Wilfork were named to the All-Pro Second Team.

    Greetings,
    Congrats to them both, I think Brian Waters should have at least made the second team All-Pro. In my opinion he had a better year than Mankins.

    Mankins got 10 votes . . . Waters got 5. :(

    Welker got 23(!) of 50 votes, second behind Calvin Johnson's 49.

    GRONK got 44.5; Jimmy Graham got the other 5.5. Those six voters should watch out for GRONK spikes. :mad:

    #32 Jersey

    While I agree with the outcome I am still surprised by it. I figured Graham would have gathered more national recognition.

    After further investigation, I've learned that the All-Pro team is voted on exclusively by mediots.

    Isn't there some kind of NFL all-pro team voted on solely by players and coaches?

    The closest you'll get is the Sporting News team, voted on by coaches and NFL execs.
