atljbo Posted October 29, 2010 Share Posted October 29, 2010 linkIt’s campaign time! These Pro Bowlers deserve your votesNFC(* indicates starter)Wide ReceiversRoddy White (Atl)*, Santana Moss (Was)* & Hakeem Nicks (NYG)White has reduced his drops and increased his production to turn good to great. Moss started hot but has faded so the Redskins may need to reduce his snap count from 94% of offensive plays. Nicks’ 8 TDs lead the league and he’s a solid blocker — but drops (5 already) may become an issue.Worthy of considerationIn truth no one else is close to these three just at the moment.TacklesLT – Bryant McKinnie (Min)*, RT – Kareem McKenzie (NYG)* & Tyson Clabo (Atl)There are currently better right tackles, but McKinnie is probably the best in the NFC playing left. McKenzie is crushing run defenders to the point he can’t be ignored but needs to improve his pass protection a little, while Clabo’s struggles against Kenyon Coleman in Cleveland was his only aberration.Worthy of considerationJeff Backus (Det) may come through to challenge McKinnie shortly.GuardsLG – Carl Nicks (NO)*, RG – Josh Sitton (GB)* & Harvey Dahl (Atl)Nicks and Sitton were two of the easiest picks to make in this article; both are at the top of their games and also consistent. Dahl is finally justifying some of the hype previously based more on his aggression than actual performance.Worthy of considerationRich Seubert (NYG)CentersTodd McClure (Atl)*, Ryan Kalil (Car) & Scott Wells (GB)McClure is a consummate professional who does everything well while Ryan Kalil has probably the most talent outside of Nick Mangold. Scott Wells needs to shore up his pass blocking (1 sack, 3 hits & 5 hurries) if he wants to maintain this position.Worthy of considerationJonathan Goodwin (NO) & Olin Kreutz (Chi) are both better pass protectors than Wells.Tight EndsJason Witten (Dal)*, Vernon Davis (SF) & Kevin Boss (NYG)Witten has been for many years the standard against which all TE’s (or those who wish to block at least) should be measured. Davis, if the Carolina game is anything to go by, is still having consistency issues, but has improved, and Boss is quietly imposing himself after his return from concussion.Worthy of considerationAnyone beyond these three is simply a “fan” vote.QuarterbacksAaron Rodgers (GB)*, Matt Ryan (Atl) & Eli Manning (NYG)Rodgers was poor on SNF last week, but prior to that he’s been golden. Matt Ryan looks to be getting into his stride and may overtake him while Manning needs to stop taking every other week off.Worthy of considerationTony Romo (Dal) would have challenged Rodgers as starter but with his recent injury we’ve taken the liberty of removing him from contention.HalfbacksAhmad Bradshaw (NYG)*, Adrian Peterson (Min) & LeSean McCoy (Phi)The AFC was tricky but the play of the gentlemen above made this a much easier call. Only McCoy’s name was questioned, but when you consider his receiving and pass blocking as well the picture became clear.Worthy of considerationRyan Torain (Was) is running tough but any Redskins fans considering their new “star” will be disappointed – he’s not on the ballot.FullbacksKorey Hall (GB)*, Ovie Mughelli (Atl) & Bear Pascoe (NYG)While Hall and Mughelli are certainly worthy of your consideration the fact that Pascoe makes this list after about 70 snaps at the position since Madison Hedgecock’s injury shows the absurdity picking three fullbacks.
