The Associated Press asks 50 voters nationwide to select its annual All-Pro team and also cast ballots on its postseason awards. Those awards started coming out this week, including the naming of Tom Brady as the comeback player of the year.
I voted for Brady and make no apologies for it because his return from a terrible knee injury was impressive. I also voted for a couple of Dolphins on the team, not because they are Dolphins but because I believe they were worthy.
As I've done the last couple of years, I am today sharing my ballot with you.
Let me know where you agree or disagree -- not that it's going to change anything as I'm a pretty stubborn guy and, well, the ballot's in already.
Also, follow me on twitter.
