Really any other division Chad Greenway would be involved but I can't argue against either Briggs or Matthews.

That's the only homer argument I can make, if you can even call that an argument. **** this season.

Jeff Backus was the best LT in the division this year. He only gave up 4 sacks against some elite pass rusherse and not many hurries and pressures either and only 3 penalties. He was a solid run blocker too.

Clifton gave up 8.5 sacks.

A big no on Olin Kruetz. He has been very bad this year. Although I admit I don't really pay attention to the centers of the other teams, but I doubt they could be worse.

I really really didn't think so. I believe it's Scott Wells and not even close, but having 4/5ths of the line being Packers seemed so wrong. I guess switch Wells and Backus in.

I don't know about that.... who charted that?

If Bulaga was the best RT in the division this year, than there are problems in Minny, Detroit, and Shicago.

Without looking at statistics, I would put Greenway on over Briggs.

There WERE problems in Minny (Favre injured a lot), Detroit (ditto for Stafford) and Chicago (Cutler sacked/hit A LOT).

He was outstanding the last half of the season. That could only mean one thing, we'll cut him a week before the 2011 season begins for some scrub that got cut on the final cut downs...

WOW ... an entire LEFT side of Lions. Sims, Backus, Pettigrew, CJ.

Come on Stafford. Come .. ON!

I also laugh at most national media folks who assume b/c Stafford gets injuries it's his lines fault. NOT true!! At least it was not the case in the 2010 season.

Well it was Backus fault Week 1 but he played very well the rest of the year and played very well in 2009 and decent in 2008 despite 0-16. Without Martz, Backus is a much better Left Tackle. Backus really struggled in Martz system in 2006 and 2007. Backus will be the LT this year even if we draft Tyron Smith or Castonzo at 13. Neither of those guys can beat Backus out IMO.

And a rookie Okung or Trent Williams in his first start against Julius Peppers could have made that same mistake. Same goes for Smith or Castonzo this year. I'd rather have the veteran Backus with 160 plus starts on the blind side than a rookie in 2011. 2nd year Smith or Castonzo I'm fine with protecting Stafford for 10 years with a year at Right Tackle and strength training under their belts if we take them at 13 but I'd rather focuse on the defense at 13.

The second injury it was clear Stafford just came back too soon when a simple ankle tackle landing on his shoulder takes him out. The 2 game knee injury in 2009 was Oline with Gosders(who got better in pass pro in 2010) and Peterman but both got better in pass pro in 2010 even with Petermans foot injury. Peterman played better in the second half of the season as the foot healed some. The Hail Mary in 2009 was just a fluke play with Stafford running around for awhile trying to make a play which he did. Oline has improved enough in pass pro where we could go into 2011 with just rookie competition from a Round 2 or 3 or 4 rookie plus Jason Fox and Hilliard competing at tackle.

Default Cecil fielde defeated Rangers in firing first shutout

Cecil fielde defeated Rangers in firing first shutout

Cecil fielde turned and let out a scream while punching the air in celebration. It was as though four months of frustration -- which included a long stint in the Minor Leagues -- were being released all at that time .

The emotion was clearly evident on Brett Cecil's face after he struck out Mike Napoli (Texas Rangers #25) to record the first shutout of his career.

Cecil fielde --The 25-year-old allowed just four hits in the best start of his career as Toronto Blue jays dominates the Texas Rangers, 3-0, on Sunday night at the Ballpark in Arlington.

Cecil, who struck out a season-high seven and appeared to have little difficulty against the second-ranked offense in the American League.He said "It's obviously a great accomplishment," "I come back from where I was at the beginning of the season and kind of where I've been floating around the whole season.

"It has definitely been a big thing for me as far as getting back on the right path. I just hope it continues."

The Blue Jays lefty had previously thrown just one complete game in his career, which came on July 5, when he threw eight innings in a loss to the Boston Red Sox. Cecil hadn't enjoyed a scoreless outing since a 7 1/3-innings performance on May 24, 2010, against the Los Angeles Angels.

Cecil didn't allow a runner to reach scoring position until the bottom of the eighth inning. Craig Gentry led off with a single just past the outstretched glove of shortstop Yunel Escobar.

Gentry moved up one batter later on a fly ball to left field. Cecil then retired the next two batters to escape the inning perfect .

Cecil came back out to start the ninth and appeared to find another gear. Cecil, who was optioned to Triple-A in April after a mysterious loss in velocity, topped out at 94 mph in the final frame before eventually striking out Napoli to end the game.

The third-year pitcher is now 2-1 with a 2.40 ERA and three quality starts in his past four outings. That's a stark difference from the guy who was sent down to the Minors after going 1-2 with a 6.86 ERA in his first four starts.

Count catcher J.P. Arencibia among those who think the velocity problems from earlier in the year were overblown.

Arencibia said. "I think the biggest thing is we got too jion in his velocity drop and all that stuff," "Sometimes that wears on you as a player, and I think he was trying to do too much.

"You see today, now he has his faith back, he's throwing out there. He's at his best when he pitches 88-90 and he's down in the zone. There's some guys that live and play for a long time doing that and are successful."

Texas Rangers starter Alexi Ogando matched Cecil pitch for pitch through the first five innings. He allowed just three hits over that span while striking out six, but the 27-year-old began to experience some difficulty in the sixth.

Ogando finished the inning but was pulled with two outs in the seventh. He allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out six. It was just his fourth loss of the season and first since June 25.

"It was still Brett Cecil's night," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "You can get shut out by anybody if he's good and he's making pitches. If he's a (MLB) Major League pitcher, there are going to be times when he pitches a heck of a game and tonight was his night."
