It's a popularity contest and no reflection on who has played well and who has not.

Porter legitimately has been taking heat on this board and elsewhere most of the season for having an off-year and, as recently as after the Cincy loss, the P-G said Hartings was having a bad year.

As an Atlanta resident, I can tell you there is not much talk around here these days about Vick being the future of football (Vick's QB rating this year - 71.8/lifetime QB rating for Kordell Stewart - 70.7) and that Keith Brooking has had a poor year.

Len Pasquarelli on espn.com lists Casey Hampton as someone who got screwed by the selection process and, Exhibit A being how Casey blew up the Vikings line for the safety on Sunday, I heartily agree.

Jeff Hartings is a very underrated center.. he's anchored our OL for years and just comes to play every week, nothing special just gets the job done every week.

Jeff Hartings has been a solid player and $$$ well spent over the life of his contract, but in the 12/1 Black & Gold Insider Ed Bouchette of the P-G wrote "I'd try Chris Kemoeatu at right guard and I'd be tempted to play Chukky Okobi at center. Jeff Hartings hasn't had a good game in two months." My bet is someone with the organization was encouraging that opinion by Ed.B.

That was an overstatement to me but the offensive line has been a major disappointment this season, even before Marvel Smith got hurt, and Simmons & Starks can't be the only reasons for the dropoff. I certainly would never have considered benching Hartings but I don't believe he has played at the level which justified his Pro Bowl selection last season. Alan Faneca has also dropped off this year but his level of play has been so high that he is still a major +.

The fan votes only account for 1/3 of the total votes. So it's not the fans alone who are making these decisions...the coaches and players have more of a say than the fans.

hey 85, long time no see !

You wonder too how much the fan vote would count if each person were only allowed to vote once.

I just heard on the radio that Hartings recieved 97% of the players/coaches votes at his position... the second most in the NFL behind Peyton Manning. That says a lot, and is something to be proud of.
