Should be starting over Rhodes but whatever. Glad he's not an alternate this year, well deserved.

I'm not a Stafford slappy but he should've got in too, though I didn't expect it to happen. Statistically, he hit the mark in pretty much every category...doing it all with no run game and a shit offensive line.

Without knowing stats! I would think the injured Philly QB, and the LA QB. And Drew Brees. Don't know if Matt was better or worse than any of those and I haven't seen the list of players named but off the top of my head those would have been the 3 I would think.

Brees has been carried by a fantastic run game this year. Hes fallen off a bit, struggling on some throws, not the Brees old.

NFL has 3 forms of voting so 3 forms of a way to screw up I guess. I wonder if the ones who vote take that into account, run game and such.

Slay leads the league in picks


Agnew, Prater, Stafford and Glover Quin all should have made it
