true. Ray Lewis anyone? A great leader but his most recent Pro Bowl selections have been a joke, as there's been dozens of better, more elite LB's playing throughout the league.
My only issue is that most of the guys with "the reputations" are the ones thats been in the league for years and years. I'm still not sure how Pouncey ever got his, aside from a decent rookie season when the AFC was a bit weak on centers.
