Congrats to Silverback

Troy and Faneca made it on reputation - hate to say it, but Troy has absolutely no business being on any All Pro team this season. Sean Taylor presumbly made it in memoriam, but that is nevertheless a nice gesture - hopefully that triggers some contract incentives that will be paid to Taylor's family.

As for Faneca, I am glad he will be able to further max out his new payday (he certainly will say he gets Hutchison $$ now) with this undeserved recognition - since Alan has given 10 years of service to the Steelers and IMO ranks with Webster and Dawson as the best Steelers OL of the modern era, I am glad he will be getting a great payday and just as glad the Steelers will not be blowing up their cap stucture by paying it

Agreed. But James Harrison most definitely deserved it!

I agree also. I thought Troy really struggled this year making tackles. He seemed like he missed quite a few. I still think the guys great. I'm looking forward to Lamaar Woodley being on this team next year.

Harrison is the only Steeler who deserves it.

Troy and Alan are there on reputation, unfortunately.

Despite the injury, Wille Parker should have made "at the very least" the 2nd team.

I also believe that Jeff Reed has been snubbed by both the Pro Bowl and All-Pro ballots. Perfect on extra points for the season, missed only 2 field goals all season, one from 65 yards in Denver, and a 40 some yarder against Miami in those weather conditions.

There's no way that Mike Vrabel belongs on this team. His reputation was built while acting as a "goaline eligible receiver" that defenders fail to cover. He's a BUM!
