Peterson was expected. Walsh might be a shock since he was a rookie, but he was really the best kicker in the NFL this year and im glad the votes agreed. Whether or not youre a rookie shouldnt have relevance.

Did Jeff Saturday make it over John Sullivan again Laughing

Walsh got 42 votes out of 50, so he won in a landslide. Peterson expectedly a unanimous choice.

I figured Felton would win, but I'm shocked Greenway made it.

Most people look for OLBs in the 3-4 that get a bunch of sacks. Greenway won't put up massive sack/INT/Forced Fumbles numbers, but he clearly was one of the better outside backers this year. Well deserved!

I'm a little surprised that Peppers got it over Allen.

and then, are there half as many players who make it as All-Pro's than Pro Bowlers? or are there two conference squads of All-Pro's?

There's less than half. There's 2 All-Pro teams made from the entire league.

Quarterbacks: Peyton Manning (first team); Aaron Rodgers

Manning received 43 votes to the just four for Rodgers and three for Tom Brady. I'm a little stunned Rodgers got more votes than Brady, considering how great the New England Patriots' offense was. The gap in the voting shows that the NFL MVP race truly is a two-man race between Manning and Adrian Peterson.

Explain to me how Matthews and Ware get 2nd team all pro with 1 vote each...was there no other LBs with 1 vote that were more deserving but because of name recognition didnt get it. Balogna!
