I think he should have made it, but the argument would be that he really isn't a three down player at this point in his career.
This year he was much more so than in his previous years. He was probably on the field more often than recent years (don't have any stats for that, just based on observation) and this was by far his best year vs. the run.
So sick of hearing about Pouncey. Not even the best center in the division and he is second team All Pro.
I predicted he'd be a top 5 center by the end of this year and the best center by end of next year, and I agree that Mack has a slight advantage over Pouncey right now, but not by much. Mack might hold his own vs. NT better than Pouncey, but Pouncey's athleticism and ability to get to the second level is pretty good.
I'll throw in an extension to my prediction: by age 25 (in four more years) Pouncey will be the best interior lineman in the league.
AJ Hawk got a vote for Inside Linebacker. Idk why Mayo got so many votes, prolly becaus he has a lot of tacklez!
Eh. I would be OK if Mayo didn't make it, but he was one of the better MLB's in the league this year. One of the best sideline to sideline guys in the league and the biggest thing he improved on was being a presence of the middle in the passing game. Delivered a ton of knockout blows to tight ends and receivers. He was a bit of a compiler last year, but this year with his knee in better shape he returned to form.
The only All-Pro selection I have a problem with is Reggie Wayne. I usually don't have any problems with any of the All-Pro selections, though... So I would have to agree that it's a little weak this year.
