    #87 Jersey

    All-Pro Team headlined by Adrian Peterson, J.J. Watt - NFL.com

    Yeah, let's not put the QB who led the 3rd greatest offense in NFL history while the unit was never healthy at one point in the season, let's put Aaron Rodgers, leading his near 8ppg worse 27.1 ppg offense with stat padding at the goalline.

    Also, congrats to Vince Wilfork for making 1st-team All-pro at DT. Mankins also made the 2nd- team all pro at G.

    One month til #4, haters.

    Uh, oh! This All-Pro snub could NOT have come at a better time for our 6th round draft pick!

    That said, Manning & Rogers are excellent representatives.

    I used to get annoyed by this stuff, but it seems that when TB12 doesn't get all the ribbons and pats on the back for the regular season that he winds up with the shiniest and most important reward of all!

    Pats were close to shut out. Wilfork made it as a starter, Mankins as a backup, which is silly.

    IMHO Mayo and McCourty were deserving. Ridley was close. Gronk would have been a shoo-in except for injury. Vollmer and Jones were dominant before their injuries, and would have gotten consideration.

    Agreed. Mayo got snubbed IMO. Welker's a stud, but I can't argue, the top 4 WRs were all amazing. I'm glad Alfred Morris and Richard Sherman got their due too.

    How about some recognition for Big Vince on making the All Pro squad? I think that deserves a thread more than another BRADY WUZ SNUBBED!!!! thread. :D

    Richard Sherman? Good on the field, but questionable on PED use and a first-class arsehole. The only thing I was glad for was him getting deservedly smacked by Williams after the Skins game.

    The most wierd thing is that Mankins was voted for. He hasn't had a good season. I think injuries have haunted him this season, hopefully he will be his old self next year.

    Personally, I think Mankins' inclusion is worse than Brady's exclusion. Mankins got in on reputation alone. With Brady, you can make an argument for Manning and Rodgers over him.

    I aalso agree with the sentiment that Mayo was a bigger snub.

    This is what Brady is far and away the most successful regular season QB in the modern era, and it ain't even close.

    Perhaps he is too boring and should buy a Pizza franchise of do stupid car insurance ads....

    Rogers .666 winning %, Manning .668, Brady .777.

    Manning of course did have more wins this season.

    This is actually really great news. Objectively silly things like pro-bowl "snubs" do really seem to motivate guys like Brady, who, to be honest, has maybe not been his top-flight self in the playoffs as of late.

    This is awesome.

    I'm still trying to figure out why this snub pisses me off, when it really shouldn't. I don't think its so much that he didn't make the team, but how STUPID are the voters who selected Manning so overwhelmingly. I can't make the numbers and situations fit. Well I guess they don't call them mediots for nothing.

    The other comments -

    1. Mankins has had his worst year as a pro (not surprising coming off an ACL, and all the injuries). His inclusion shows how flawed the system is.

    2. BB JR. had a great year. His best year as a matter of fact, but you can't hate the guys they picked at OLB

    3. I'm thrilled London Fletcher was selected. Its the kind of selection that gives me hope. Ray Lewis gets all the accolades but its London Fletcher who keeps piling up the stats. They are both 37, but Fletcher is by far the better LB at this point.....and he might have always been the better LB, just without the great PR guy.

    4. Gronk missed more than a third of the season and STILL wound up with more TDs than any TE in the league. Is STILL a better blocker than Witten and Gonsalez, and is STILL not on the team. Oops what hope I had in the process has just been taken away.

    Frankly, it shows the voters are lazy. They aren't coaches, they aren't players, they don't have other jobs.

    They should look at things like PPG, rushing TDs, and they should deemphasize things such as pass incompletions (which kills Brady) and look at how significant an incompletion is when you're converting 3rd downs at a greater than 50% rate. Manning and Rodgers are in the 30%+ range.

    The players see this I think as maybe motivation, ok I didn't make it but if the team takes it day by day, focuses on the task in front of them they have the opportunity to win a Super Bowl.

    Fletcher has been criminally underrated his entire career, but let's not be ridiculous.

    Yeah but if you think about it, the great Tom Brady was a 6th round draft pick!!! A 6th round draft pick!!! :D How is he supposed to be this good? :)

    When will the values of this so called Pro-Bowl and All-Pro selections lose their worth? At what point do their significance in judging a player lose merit?

    But then again I look at the fuss the Oscars get every year despite the constant mocking it rightly gets.

    Not worth getting fussed over, over hyped and of no value. Let's win #4, and let the losers worry about how many 'All-Pro' players they have in their roster.

    First of all, congrats to Big Vince.


    So all the people complaining about Sherman not making the Pro Bowl apparently made their voices heard. He doesn't make the larger Pro Bowl roster, but does make the smaller All Pro team.

    Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.


    As far as the three quarterbacks go, no matter who doesn't make it then there is going to be an upset fan base with a legitimate gripe. It's kind of a no-win situation, no matter who you leave out.


    While we can say Pro Bowl and All Pro teams are silly and ridiculous - which at times is true when you look at some of the players that make those rosters and who gets left off - for some reason they then become incredibly important when it comes to Hall of Fame nominations and voting for many people making those decisions.

    The difference being the fan base with legitimate gripe and those without.
    Brady and Gronk not being selected = legitimate.

    The AP did not do itself proud with this year's voting. The Manning voting was a joke, but it wasn't the only instance of poor decisionmaking.

    Here's the thing, IMO: Both Brady and Rodgers should have beaten out Manning. However, even if someone wanted to argue that Manning deserved it over one of them, there's no way to honestly justify the voting pattern on the basis of the QB play this season. It would be one thing if the voting was won by a razor thin margin. The fact that Manning beat two superior QBs in a blowout is a joke, and it takes away from the legitimacy of the award.

    This is by far the most remarkable. Nobody in their right minds would have Witten or Gonzales over Gronk on their team. The guy is unstoppable in the red zone and is a monster blocking, even with one hand. Is there really any question who the best TE in football is right now?

    I love how the article starts off criticizing the fan voting when the AP voting is almost just as bad.

    Rogers also had to deal with many more injuries on the offensive side of the ball then Brady. Jennings Nelson missed alot of the season while they were just throwing running backs out there
