My biggest issues:
* Wes Welker at wide receiver? I know he had a bazillion catches, but he missed two games and most of a third. And even if you want to have a "possession receiver" on the team, Reggie Wayne had more first downs than Welker in 20 fewer catches. I'd have put Vincent Jackson in here, but Wayne also would have been a good choice.
* I'd also have gone with Antonio Gates over Dallas Clark. (There were no Chargers on the All-Pro team.)
* And Elvis Dumervil over Brian Cushing? Really? Dumervil does exactly one thing well -- rush the passer -- and on plays where he does not sack the quarterback he is a complete non-factor. He had 17 sacks, but ZERO tackles for loss on running plays, which has to be a record.

As actual NFL football returns to our lives, we have observations on good quarterback play in Dallas, bad quarterback play in Denver, the Olympics, baseball, taxes, and mermaids.
