The only All-Pro team I pay attention to

Is Dr. Z's. Check out his 2006 All-Pro team. I've gushed over Dr. Z before, but he's absolutely the best. He bases his points on close observation and technical knowledge of the football game, devises his own statistical system to measure players' performances, and writes openly about the process. I love statistical systems, but I'll take the hype-free "close reading" of Dr. Z any day. He's the model for a football writer and football analyst.

Viking DT Pat Williams makes the team for the second year in a row.

  1. Agreed, I enjoy Dr. Z as well. A little old, but that's ok.
