All-Pro Team Announces…


The NFL released the All Pro team for 2012.  Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers lead the team at QB.  More importantly, the first thing I did was scan to see if any Bills were named to the team.  My first thought was that CJ Spiller would have a possibility of being there. Well, I was wrong.  Spiller did not even get in on the voting aspect of this.

There were three Bills that were voted for to make the team.  C Eric Wood received 1 vote.  CB/RET Leodis McKelvin received 2.5 votes and S Jarius Byrd received 7 votes.

Out of the three named above only one made it.  Jarius Byrd made the second team for the All Pros.  The RB competition was difficult for Spiller as Arian Foster only received 3 votes and he was the last named in the voting.

Are we surprised, not really.  The notion that more than just Byrd being named was a bit high to expect.  As always though it is somehting to work on and it could show the development of the team progressing and getting better if more are named next year.
