First Team

QB - Peyton Manning
HB - Adrian Peterson
FB - Vonta Leach
TE - Tony Gonzalez
WR - Calvin Johnson
WR - Brandon Marshall
OT - Duane Brown, Ryan Clady
G - Mike Iupati, Jahri Evans
C - Max Unger

DE - J.J. Watt, Cameron Wake
DT - Geno Atkins, Vince Wilfork
OLB - Von Miller, Aldon Smith
ILB - Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman
CB - Richard Sherman, Charles Tillman
S - Earl Thomas, Dashon Goldson

K - Blair Walsh
P - Andy Lee
KR - Jacoby Jones

I think these picks are mostly fair... a few players I thought could have made it are on the All-pro second team: Champ Bailey, Aaron Rodgers, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and London Fletcher.

So overall good choices.

Also Tony Gonzalez still being one of the best TEs in the league is crazy... the guy isn't just one of the best TEs ever, but one of the best football players period.

Anyone have any thoughts? Moderator

Rodgers should be ahead of manning. There is no reason he shouldn't. Rodgers statistically had a better season playing against legitimate defenses/teams. Bears, Lions, and Vikings are all playoff contenders. Chiefs, Oakland, and Chargers not so much. I hate these bonus points manning is getting for playing back from a neck injury.
