The AP's released their NFL All-Pro team for the year.
There's some weird ones. Naming Tony Gonzalez at TE and Le'Ron McClain at FB despite the fact that they played wide receiver and halfback, respectively, for a good chunk of the year seems very odd.
I thought they actually nailed the offensive line, which is shocking. Jason Peters getting any votes this year is sorta silly, but the starters are spot-on.
One of the defensive backs profiles as overrated this year. We'll reveal who in the AFC preview that comes out later today (Hint: It's not Asomugha).
Whoever voted for Terence Newman clearly didn't watch football this year. I don't mean that as hyperbole. I literally do not believe they watched professional football this year.
