    But it doesn't count because he missed a couple FGs a half decade ago. :lol:

    Gates finished 2nd to Dallas Clark.

    Clark deserved it, he had 100 rec for 1,106 yards and 10 TD's.

    Gates had 79 rec for 1,157 yards and 8 TD's.

    Gates probably had a better YPC average, but I'm not sure.

    Too lazy to check :lol:

    Best TEAM > Best players

    I'm happy for Nate, he's basicaly so good they couldn't deny him.

    As for the rest, I hope all our players get pissed.

    Yes, really hard to check since Gates has less reception and more yards. :lol:

    Gates is way better than Dallas Clark. Clark had an incredible year, but I'll take the guy who had 20 fewer receptions and more yards over the guy who caught a lot of short stuff.

    Agreed.
    The selectors obviously only focus on catches as the criteria for TE and WR.
    hence the selection of Welker - great player - but poor average, few TD's - selected purely on receptions.

    Also, I can't believe Lechler was near-unanimous as punter.
    Why bother calling the team All-Pro?
    just call it "leader of one statistical category".....

    Rant over.
