    Good picks. The only one I'd question is Wilkins. He's good but I think Josh Brown's 4 game winners, most of which were 50 yards or more are gonna carry some weight with voters.

    Nick, you left Travis Fisher off your ballot,what gives ? just kidding

    real question-do you think incognito has a shot, i like the pick but with his so called bad reputation from some teams, will that hurt his chances and if the rams continue to lose does Bulger still get picked.

    I don't know? It's hard for me to believe that 8 Rams will make it. I hope the ballot is accurate but I have my doubts.

    It won't carry that much weight considering there isn't a sortable "Game Winning Kicks" category on the interactive ballot to remind voters of those kicks. Casual voters who likely don't even remember that Seattle is still in the NFC playoff hunt (because let's face it, for whatever reason, general fans seem to completely forget about and underappreciate the Seattle Seahawks) aren't going to remember those kicks when they look on the ballot because kickers are only ranked by three categories - field goals, extra points, and perhaps most importantly, total points. Wilkins leads the NFC in field goals and is second in total points. There's a very strong case to be made for him.

    This from the guy who weeks ago told everyone to leave the Fisher comments alone, and is now the only one making them. :x

    As for Richie? No chance. Consider that in order to vote for offensive lineman, you have to make it past the initial skill position ballot. Those that do typically vote on name recognition more than performance. I'm not convinced he's had a Pro Bowl year, but I'm also not seeing a lot of other NFC centers that really stood out.

    Birk in Minnesota is also playing for a bad team but has name recognition. Faine could make it because of how the Saints are playing. And Washington's line I believe is regarded as strong, so maybe there's a case to be made for Rabach. Choosing Incognito at center was probably the most biased of the Rams picks I made because he's the only one I think you can't quantify.

    As for Bulger, if he has the numbers he'll get in. He's fourth in the NFC in passer rating behind Romo and Brees, who I voted for, and Garcia who has no shot as a back-up. He's also fourth in touchdowns, but he's behind Grossman and Manning. Grossman is basically the NFL's ******* child this season and hasn't played well at all for something like six weeks, and Manning only just rebounded this weekend after a month and a half of subpar performances. If Bulger keeps his numbers up, I think he makes it. However, Bulger hasn't exactly lit the stat sheet up the last month, so he's not a sure thing either.

    Eight Rams won't make it. You very rarely see numerous selections from one team unless that team is a contender. Realistically I expect maybe 2-3 Rams to make it. But I think a case can definitely be made for the ones I voted for, save perhaps Richie.
