Apologies in advance for the formating. Looking through the list, a few raised eyebrows at some of the decisions. Can't believe that Aaron Rodgers missed out, i'm a Matt Ryan fan but he simply isn't better than Rodgers (also Matty Ice is a lame nickname). John Abraham & Tony Gonzales surely only got in thanks to their names & the team they play for, quite a few better players at their positions in the NFC.

Can't believe that Desean got picked over Maclin, he has been our #2 all year & the first time he showed up in a big game was with the Giants punt return (After stinking it up all game in the recieving department). Shady McCoy should've been 3rd string rather than Steven Jackson IMO, not a fan of Michael Turner starting either, seems to me like it's another nod to the Falcons.

Can't believe that MJD is starting over Arian Foster for the AFC, Foster has been a beast all year & was being talked about as a possible MVP candidate mid-season.

Other than that, it seems to all make sense. Quite a few rookies in there as well so congratulations to them.

The most telling thing is there is no Vike representation on the D.  That's a long fall from grace for the Shock and AWWE, Purple People Eater monolith of last year. 


Re: Pro Bowl

It was a bit shocking but I think a lot of that has to do with the d-line being fairly miserable (except when beating up on Vick).

I would've thought that Chad Greenway would have gotten a mention though, especially given the depth of the NFC LB talent pool.He has been lights out for the Vikes this year.
