Default NFL Midseason All-Pro team

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...jj-watt-tabbed

Gonna make you click it, sorry for the inconvenience. But a few highlights:

AJ Green is on there with Reggie Wayne.

Manning was listed as best QB. Peyton, that is.

Apparently Chicago's defense is all world.

DTs: Calais Campbell and J.J.Watt. No Geno. I think I mentioned this in a thread a while back, Geno is considered to be in Watt's position when you amalgamate the two defensive schemes...for worse in this case.

Obviously this doesn't mean much. Just for funsies.

Oh, and Doug Martin was one of the RBs listed. Not that I agree he's top 2, but that he's even in the conversation...you know who you haters are.

Green and Atkins deserve to be on there. Though I can't really argue with JJ Watt being there as well. That guy is one scary defender.

Any such team that doesn't have Geno on it has no legitimacy at all.

And JJ Watt does NOT play the same position as Geno, amalgamated for scheme; Geno would be a RE.

Ok. Do you think Geno should be on a half-way point All Pro team, and if so where would he be in a 4-3 (Like the one they use)?

Guys who are UTs are more of the pass rushing type; Justin Smith was a UT for us in the nickle; Geno is a UT. A UT would usually play RE in a 3-4.

JJ Watt would probably be a LE in a 4-3, just like he's an end now.

Calais Campbell on the other hand, WOULD play the same position as Geno does in a 4-3, as he's a UT.

For comparison's sake, here's ESPN's:

Out, AJ; in, Geno. Go figure.

Campbell isn't the relentless pass rusher and penetrator that Geno is, but Campbell is friggin' a monster in the run game, and he rarely if ever gives up a negative play.

Any All Pro list without Green and Atkins on it is no list of importance or quality. 102/1470/16 pace for Green and Atkins on pace for 14 sacks as a DT, along with being a force in the running game.

Clayton chose Wayne and Harvin. Wayne I agree with...Harvin is so hot and cold it's detrimental.

I don't know if I would put Doug Martin above Arian Foster. While Martin does have like 20 more yards than Foset, Foster has 10 TDs compared to 7. But it is remarkable what Martin has done his past two games. Although, if he doesn't have these last 2 games, I don't even think Martin is in the conversation
