    Congrats to the two of them. Really good to see a guy like Vonta Leach get the recognition he deserves.

    It's crazy that Suh got first team All-Pro his rookie season.

    Crazy as in how good he is. What a player! Some guys exceed the hype.

    THey figured 2 Texans on the all pro roster was more than enough.
    Andre out gained all those wrs in 13 games and a bad ankle.
    And how can a team with the leagues leading rusher and a 4000 yard passer not get an O-line man on there. Wade should have been an all pro.

    My only thought for AJ to not to be in there, is because of his heroics versus Finnegan. Is there a morality angle in the All Pro team?

    Bowe? Really? He must have come on strong at the end of the year or something.

    After his breakout game against the Texans :( (though really who HASNT), Bowe went on a big time TD catching spree. In a 7 game including the Texans he had 13 TDs, 49 catches, 733 yards.

    We've seen the catches and yards out of Andre Johnson like that, but putting scores on the board gets attention. AJ's had 17 TDS the past 2 years combined.

    The "_ is a JOKE" pick is Logan Mankins. He only played 8 games this year.

    Damn, an All-Pro fullback leading the way for an All-Pro running back/rushing champion....and the team still finishes on a 2-8 run. And keeps the head coach...

    Okay, okay....I'll stop now.

    As long as he or any other Texan isn't put on the Madden 12 cover. The Texans don't need that kind of bad karma...real or not.

    and why does it matter? Ed Reed only played 1 more game than him, (Mankins actually played 9, and Reed played 10)

    those last 9 games, New England had the better team around the league, Tom Brady was well protected, etc.

    Well deserved. I'm glad to see Leach get the respect he deserves. Dude was a freight train clearing the way for Foster.
