A couple of notes on the team as selected by the nine of us. 

 

  • Anyone else surprised that Zach Collaros was the near unanimous selection at quarterback ahead of Geno Smith who is getting all of the preseason love?
  • The defensive line had the most variance. There was actually a four way tie for the fourth spot, highlighting just how deep the positions is across the conference. 
  • There was no variance at all for running back. It was Pead, Graham, and nobody else. Smart choices all.
  • I commend the other writers for avoiding utter homerism. I didn't any selections that just looked outlandish. Great job by all of you and I look forward to doing it again next year.

So did we leave anyone out? Are there any selections you don't agree with? Let us know in the comments below.
