My guesses:

Offense:

Ward - doesn't have the stats of some other guys (11th in receiving yards) but think he gets the respect of a silent majority in the NFL.  Lighting up Ravens appeals to most of the league.

Roethlisberger - think he should go, but his stats don't line up well with Manning, Rivers, and Cutler.  Comeback victories as of late may push him ahead of Cutler who is incredibly inconsistent. 

While both of them IMO deserve it, neither goes.  So I have no one from the offense.






Defense - (all mentioned I think go):

Hampton - run stuffer on league's #1 defense (we still #1 against the run?)

Aaron Smith - most underrated defensive player in the league.

Woodley - should start alongside Harrison, but don't see it happening.  Porter will get the nod.

Harrison - no question, he starts

Farrior - leader of #1 defense, doing everything asked of him thus far.

Polamalu - see Harrison



Special teams:

Reed - might the missed PAT in Washington weigh in too much?  The guy doesn't miss unless it's a monsoon or he's 65 yards out.  I'm going to say he gets the invite.

So that's 7.

Kickers are like linemen.  Once you get in you stay in unless your leg falls off or you retire.  The AFC kicker will be Bironas (do they take 2?). 

No chance for Ben, barring the guys who make it deciding not to go.  Hell, I bet Cassel has a better shot.  Wouldn't surprise me to see Favre go either, though no way in hell does he deserve it.

Hampton won't go unless Haynesworth and Kris Jenkins can't. 

Keyaron Fox is my sleeper pick.

I don't see anyone from the O side going.

D-side, I see Pola and Harrison. 

That's it.

Screw it.  I'll take Lombardis over Hawaii numbers.

I think Ike Taylor goes this year...At least, I think that he should.  He has really stepped it up this season.

Offense - Not a damn soul

Defense - Smith (will get his due this year), Silverback, Woodley, Troy. Maybe Farrior.

Peazy's got the numbers... 17.5 sacks.  Now, Thuggs only has 7.5 to El Wood's 11.5, so that's BS.  Must be name recognition.  Just wait till folks see a bit more of the Woodman in the postseason...

Once again, Aaron Smith get screwed.

Wish people would realize if he played in a 4-3 he'd have comparable sack numbers to anyone on that team. And he's one of the best against the run.
