Further proof that Dr. Z from SI is an idiot. Here's a link to his sleepers to make the All-Pro team.

I have a few thoughts/questions for Dr. Z...

1. How can Marques Colston be a sleeper when he's the most talked about offensive rookie and is in the top 5 in WR TD's?
2. Since when is Lance Briggs a sleeper, Dr. Z? I'm pretty sure he made the Pro Bowl last year, pal.
3. When you are 1-2 in the league in receiving yards halfway through the season (Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne), I'm pretty sure you're no longer a "sleeper".
4. When was the last time a WR made the All-Pro team with one receiving touchdown over the course of the first half of the season? Will Wes Welker be the first, Dr. Z (400 yards, 1 TD)?
5. In case you didn't notice Dr. Z, Tommie Harris has been non-existant since week 4 against the Seahawks.
6. You say this about Elvis Dumervil, Dr. Z: "The 5-foot-11, 250-pound Dumervil, who's been called too short forever -- is leading Denver in sacks." That's great to hear, but let me fill you in on a little secret. There's another rookie DE in the NFL, Mark Anderson, who is in the top 5 IN THE NFL in sacks. Last time I checked, you don't make the All-Pro team for "being called too short forever". I won't even bother to compare Anderson to Mathias Kiwanuka, your other DE selection. Contrary to your knowledge, the NFL runs deeper than the first day of the draft.
7. I won't touch Julian Peterson. I can't reach that high on the overrated chart.
8. Explain to me how a 1-7 team has 3 players make your list on the defensive side of the ball.


Give your job to a real fan, Dr. Z, because you, my friend, suck dong.
