The NFL released its All-Pro team for the 2014 season; so I had Dan the Man, Schaumburg Stu, Mr. Fantasy and myself vote on who we thought where the top players in the NFL. We didn’t choose any offensive lineman because we don’t study line play like we should. I assigned a point value to each vote and a player was given an extra point for a 1st place vote. I’ll put the player’s point total in parenthesis next to their name and ties where broken by which player appeared on the most ballots. Here’s what we came up with.

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers (12) Green Bay Packers, Peyton Manning (5) Denver Broncos, Andrew Luck (4) Indianapolis Colts, Tony Romo (3) Dallas Cowboys, Tom Brady (1) New England Patriots, Ben Roethlisberger (1) Pittsburgh Steelers.

That’s what we came up with for the 2014 NFL season. Do you agree or disagree, did we miss someone?

Here are our picks for today’s (Saturday) wild card match ups. We’re split on the first game as Dan the Man and Schaumburg Stu like the Arizona Cardinals to win while Mr. Fantasy and I are going with the Carolina Panthers to win. In the second game Dan the Man is the only one of us that likes the Baltimore Ravens to win as Schaumburg Stu, Mr. Fantasy and I are all going with the Pittsburgh Steelers to win. Mr, Fantasy won the regular season pick contest, but will he be able to do the same through the playoffs.
