Not one Redskin mentioned. Sorry, but that's crap. At least Santana should have been mentioned, but Peter Queen hates the Redskins and couldn't have his reputation ruined by listing one of them, now could he?

EDIT: Post below mine makes me look like a toolshed. My apologies Queen, may be the only time you get them.

My safeties would be ST and Adrian Wilson. Screw Polamalu and Sanders.

Why am I always ranting about safeties, anyway?

Good to see Randy Thomas made the list, even if it is a Peter King list. Can't figure out if he's above or below Shapiro on my list of writers to avoid (although I admit I read MMQB at work when I bored and need to learn more about Starbucks).

Actually not too bad.

3 Giants and 1 Redskin on the list....kind of suprised Hines Ward over Moss, Bouldin, Johnson or Harrison for that matter. Overall, pretty fair.

And I really wonder why C. Griffin is so forgotten, the D-line is much different when he's been injured......yet nobody mentions this guy?????

Kings' assesment isn't much different than what other writers are saying.

I see exactly 2 Giants, not "plenty", and at least Tiki deserves to be on some list. Guess you could switch Moss for Ward. Not a big deal anyway.

Oh and Tom Brady should be the MVP.

Actually there are three:

C -- Shaun O'Hara, New York Giants

RB --Tiki Barber, New York Giants.

DE -- Osi Umenyiora, New York Giants

And three qualify as "plenty" on an ALL-PRO TEAM. That team spans over all NFL players. Out of 26 players he chose, 3 were Giants, which is a pretty high percentage considering there are 32 teams.

he's not even in the top 5

1. Alexander

2. Palmer

3. Manning

4. Barber

5. Smith

No way, Alexander MAYBE. Its not "Best Stats this year" its "Most Valuable Player". Outside of Alexander or maybe Steve Smith, Brady blows those other guys away. Tom Brady at one point this year was the only thing hte Patriots had, and he held them together long enough to get through all the injuries and make it back to the playoffs. He had his best season BY FAR as a pro, I think/hope he wins the MVP.

Spoken like a 21 yr old homer that really knows nothing outside of his own team.
