    • Who are the linemen on the Jags?

      The other trouble is that they have the fourth best AFC QB in Gerrard, (behind Manning, Brady and Roethlisburger), and the 4th best RB, (Addai has more touchdowns).

      We shouldn't have gotten Dielmen or McNeil in, they are not performing up to their standards a year ago.

        And Taylor has one FULL yard greater in yards per carry. I'd put Taylor over Addai, personally.

        • The Jag who most deserved a pro bowl selection was CB Rashean Mathis. Fred Taylor probably deserved to go over Willie Parker, who only has a pile of yards because he's carrying the ball billions of times inefficiently. You could also make a reasonable case for their defensive end Paul Spicer.

          • Though Parker has the same yards per carry as Addai (and McGahee for that matter) .

            • OOOOOH... Not so fast for Parcells!

              http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3161733

              FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Bill Parcells will not be joining the Atlanta Falcons as head of football operations.

              Parcells turned down the position, Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Wednesday in a statement. Blank said the team had an agreement in principle with Parcells, but after he told the Falcons he was considering an offer from the Miami Dolphins, negotiations fell through.

              Parcells was considering an offer to join the team's front office as vice president of football operations, a role that would put him in charge of finding the next coach for a team rocked by the suspension and imprisonment of Michael Vick and the sudden resignation of Bobby Petrino.

                  Sure, which helps that he isn't the only one running.

                  Fred has less then half the touchdowns that Addai has, and that counts too.

                      Makes it even more impressive that Taylor isn't the only one running for Jacksonville, yet has more yards than Addai.

                      TDs are also a function of the team. It helps that Addai has Peyton Manning and co. to get him more chances at short yardage TDs .

                      Not saying Addai sucks or anything, but Taylor gets my nod.

                      • It's clearly Taylor over Parker, not over Addai.

                        Addai has 0 fumbles on the year, which shouldn't be ignored. (Parker is extremely fumblicious.) Addai offers consistent gains to Parker's boom-or-bust. And Addai is by far the best receiver of the three. He and Taylor are also far superior to Parker in pass protection.

                        Addai vs Taylor is a close matchup. Either one of them vs Parker is not.

                          I'd add Wes Welker to that list as well... the guy has been pivotal in the Pats' passing game... he has 96 receptions, 1,004 yards, and 8 TDs... that's huge!

                            How can you be a snub when there are only 4 positions for WR and all 4 picked were better than you?

                            To add... your AFC WR Pro-Bowlers:

                            Randy Moss - 87 rec, 1343 yds, 19 TDs
                            Reggie Wayne - 82 rec, 1280 yds, 9 TDs
                            Braylon Edwards - 69 rec, 1170 yds, 13 TDs
                            T.J. Houshmandzadeh - 101 rec, 1028 yds, 11 TDs

                            Which one is Welker better than?

                            • I like Welker, but you can't ignore that having Moss on the other side is a blessing for him.

                              • Oh, I couldn't find the rosters very easily... the NFL site is still quite messy, but I was under the impression that there were 5 slots for WR.

                                It's a toss-up between Housh and Welker though... Housh has better numbers, but still, the Bengals have a **** record.
