    First one of them that actually hits another one gets a prize.

    At first glance, a few thoughts:

    The QB position has a definite Deep South/N'awlins flavor with the Mannings having Mississippi River Delta roots and Crescent City upbringings.
    Favre hails from the same area, just east of there along the Mississippi coast.
    Brees, while reared elsewhere, currently resides in the Big Easy.

    Cutler was even a southern collegiate star at Vandy in Nashville, though he was born in the hamlet of Santa Claus, Indiana.

    Another note:
    Lance Moore, receiver for the Saints, should have gotten more of a look for a roster spot.
    His season has been sensational.

    All of you who thought in August that the AFC running backs would be Thomas Jones, Chris Johnson and Ronnie Brown, raise your left paw.

    I know the AFC running back pickings are pretty slim, but I don't get the Ronnie Brown selection at all.

    While I don't want to openly knock the NFC selections, I do want to say something on behalf of DeAngelo Williams.

    Jordan Gross, Julius Peppers and Jon Beason got in - all worthy candidates. So did Kris Jenkins with the Jets, which is no surprise given his obvious ability.

    Probably even slimmer than you're realizing.

    The big guns, Tomlinson, Addai and Larry Johnson, have done zilch.

    Marshawn Lynch and Steve Slaton are probably 4 and 5.
  8. Agreed. It's better than Brett Favre, though.

    If LaDainian Tomlinson hadn't had to hobble around all year, Ronnie Brown wouldn't be anywhere near this discussion.

    Little doubt Chris Johnson and Thomas Jones earned their stripes. The selection of Brown pretty much shows a serious lack of depth in the spot in the AFC this year. And unfortunately, DeAngelo Williams stays home because of the relatively crowded house in the NFC.

    Frankly, Sam, I don't know if LT will ever be what he was. I think this might be a particularly glaring example of the short shelf life for running backs.

    I'm worried that you might be right. Some of us had been scratching our heads for years, wondering how a guy Tomlinson's size continuously did what he did without injury - or even slowing down much. Guys like Walter Payton are the exception, not the rule.

    I really thought Tomlinson was the best back in the league since Marshall Faulk, who was the best since Payton. I dunno if I can say that now.
