PFF's All-AFC South team vs. mine
By Paul Kuharsky
I feel badly for Khaled Elsayed today.
Afterall, he picked Andrew Luck as his All-AFC South quarterback. And we know when a certain AFC South blogger recently made that move how Texans faithful reacted.
I suspect Elsayed has a big day of Twitter activity ahead.
But that’s the price he pays for being right.
Our differences are few, and I don't find any of the spots where he went a different direction to be objectionable.
Here's his team. Here’s mine.
He went two-back while I went two-tight. He went 4-3 while I went 3-4.
He has David Stewart at right tackle, but I know Stewart didn’t play to his standard, and downgraded him because he got hurt and missed four games. Winston Justice of the Colts was hardly great, but got my nod.
He picked Derrick Morgan as his fourth defensive lineman where I had Paul Posluszny as my fourth linebacker, and he gave Zach Brown a spot where I had Robert Mathis. He also has Dwight Lowery as a safety, a pick I very nearly made because Danieal Manning was inconsistent.
Finally, PFF liked Josh Scobee as the place-kicker where I tabbed Rob Bironas. Like me, Elsayed gave the nod at punter to Pat McAfee. The tweets protesting the crime of going that direction over Jags’ rookie Bryan Anger won’t match the Schaub defense, Khaled, but they might come close.
PFF liked Alan Ball as its special teamer. He missed a lot of games, and I had his teammate Bryan Braman.
Dig in and enjoy.
