The entire AP all-pro vote totals are fascinating. Seattle and Indianapolis had four first-team players each. Only one player, Antonio Gates, was a unanimous selection. I'm stunned that five voters didn't think Steve Smith was one of the two best wide receivers in the NFL this year. Willie Roaf is a terriffic player, but do you really deserve 11 all-pro votes when you miss half the season? The two people who voted for Larry Foote are going to be getting some angry e-mails. The people who made the following choices ought to have their votes taken away permanently:
Kicker Mike Vanderjagt
Kick returner Eddie Drummond
Defensive tackle Ted Washington
Defensive end Robert Mathis

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
