    It would be hard to argue against your choices.
    I just realized...No OL from the Steelers? It was hard not to put Faneca on that list!

    Not the way he played last year.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Leigh Bodden was traded to Detroit, so he is not eligible to be mentioned among the best players in the AFC North.

    Stacy Andrews was an injury fill-in at RT last year while Eric Steinbach was a Pro Bowl alternate at guard.

    Jason Brown is projected to start at center for the Ravens, not Chris Chester.

    I said 2007 not 2008. Based on last year not this year. Bodden was one of the top in the class...In the NFL! Who ever started C against the Steelers for the Ravens was my pick at C. I couldn't remember his name just what he did to Hampton. Chester is listed as the starter with Brown behind him on the depth chart. I assumed it was Chester. If not, I would go with Brown. I'm not a Steinback fan. Faneca was a Pro Bowler last year and he isn't on the list. Andrews was the starting LG but moved to RT when Anderson went down. Athletic enough to do so. Andrews is a stud and I would trade him for almost every player on this OL.

    My bad regarding the year. However, if you are going by last year only, don't you have to put James Harrison (98 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 7 forced fumbles, 3 passes defensed, 1 interception) over Kamerion Wimbley (51 tackles, 5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 1 passes defensed, 0 interceptions).

    Also, Mike Flynn was the starting center for the Ravens last year. He is currently an unsigned free agent on the street.

    And while I am impressed with Stacy Andrews' brother Shawn in Philly, I don't think Stacy has quite arrived yet. He may have potential, but trying to be an objective observer, I didn't like Cincy's decision to put the franchise tag on Andrews any more than I liked Pittsburgh's decision to put the transition tag on Starks.

    You might be 100% correct about Harrison vs WImbley. I was trying to be unbiased and look more at potential than what he actually did in 2007. The same happened with Andrews vs Faneca. I guess I should have stuck with my heart on those two. I do believe Wimbley & Andrews will be better from this point forward in their respective careers. But on 2007 merritt, you might have made your case! I think Cincy's decision to tag Andrews was the exact reason why the Steelers tagged Starks. The have an untammed "Stallion" that looks the part but just hasn't shown up yet. I think we both are hoping "The Light Goes One" for our respective players. Did Flynn start both games against the Steelers? I am going to have to see if I have any of the Ravens game still on DVR. Whomever was blocking hampton those two games made Hampton look "Washed Up" or playing injured on many plays. Maybe it was a G eating him up? Casey wasn't the same guy last year. Maybe he is getting worn down? It seems when he has a better statistical game it is because he is making tackles after being pushed back. When Casey has "0" stats it is because he is occupying 2 OL and the LBs are flowing to the ball. The regular season Jacksonville game might have worn him out! He put up big numbers but that was because they were blocking him with one OL and he was making tackles 5 yards down field. I hope the guy is fully recovered and in shape. Maybe one of these young guys can surprise and give him the breather he needs to keep him fresh for playoffs!

    The only thing consistent about Heap is that he's injured year in year out.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...
