    Has there been a year in recent memory that has been LESS dominated by running backs? After the top 2, there is a huge drop off to Todman and LeShoure IMO.

    One other note...Football Writers Association gave 1st team AA honors to Kellen Moore, relegating the Heisman Trophy winner to 2nd team.

    Non-Story... I might be the only one here but we should have had up to 4 players among the first three teams.

    ??? 7-5 teams typically do not get multiple selections. Who would you put up there? No one else was close in the statistics or notoriety necessary to make this list. I could argue for Christian Ballard and that would be it.

    I said should, because we also should have had a better year. Slap a 10-2 next to Stanzi and he gets into the mix. Sash & one other offensive player would have been involved as well.
