Strief the All-Pro?

From Peter Kings MMQB Column:

My All-Pro ballot

Below is the ballot I filed to the Associated Press as one of the voters for the annual All-Pro team. (Note: I vote for one left tackle and one right tackle, instead of the best two tackles regardless of position; same thing at guard. Also, the AP asks for two running backs and a fullback, but I vote for one running back only, because teams don’t play two running backs at once with much regularity.)

That that was pretty neat. He has a good piece on Brees and his 10 years (so far) with the Saints too.

You kids get off my lawn!

Re: Strief the All-Pro?

That's laughable. Look, I'll defend Strief when necessary but All-Pro?!

Re: Strief the All-Pro?

I'm probably the biggest Strief supporter around but yeah, even I was a little surprised. I actually tweeted King and asked him to elaborate.
