    All of the above would be my choice, as I think all of them will have pro bowl seasons (and recognition).

    But if I had to choose, I’d go with Tramon (Al nailed it on the postseason plays and recognition).

    But they all are in the top 5 in their respective positions. If anyone, Sitton is the best at his postion (he’s arguably the best RG in football), but because the line struggles, he doesn’t get recognition.

    Raji is already the best NT in the league, and if he plays like he did later in the season (which I expect) you can count 9 sacks for him, which will put him in the pro bowl. But guys like Suh and Kevin Williams makes it hard for him.

    Finley can be one of the best skill players on the team, but he needs to play a whole season, something he hasn’t done so far. Plus, there’s competition from Gonzales, Witten, Celek, Cooley, Pettitgrew…

      Ratliff making the pro bowl last year as an alternate instead of B.J. was a joke. If all of those guys stay healthy they all have a great chance.

      Also, as RS said, if Finley is healthy he will make it in my mind for sure. He was on pace for 80 catches and 1200 yards before he got hurt. The media already loves him and throws him in with the top TEs in the league. If he plays 14 games he will be in.

    As we saw in the playoffs, playmakers win championships. So, besides the pro And now we’re discussing 4 legitimate 1st time pro bowlers. God it’s great to be a Packer fan.

    An arguement can be made for all of the candidates. And thinking about it a bit more, it is possible that they could all reach the level of All-Pro this year. The SB title will bring with it more attention for our play makers. Justifiably, I might add.

    My favorite is Sitton. He is the anchor of the interior line. He plays at a high level every game. He rarely, if ever misses any time. He was the first of TT’s Oline picks who moved into what was an aging and underperforming unit (Yes, I am excluding Colledge deliberatly). Adding Bulaga (I expect him to make great strides this year, as well) to his side will further strengthen his chances for recognition.

    I have to go and say my daily prayer that some brains are deposited in the empty heads of negotiators on both sides. It’s time to start getting excited. NOW!

      Ha. I just knew you were going to talk about Sitton! But he is a monster. If only we had 5 guys like him in the OL, we would dominate every single game.

      He is the best Packers olineman I’ve seen (did not see the Lombardi’s teams), and that includes Tauscher and Clifton at their peak, Wahle and Rivera, Frank Winters…

      Bishop is so underrated. ProFootballFocus had him graded really high among ILBs, and the guy had 3 tackles for loss and a fumble recovery in SB XLV, not to mention some key plays he made throughout the season, none more important than a saving tackle of DeSean Jackson in space.

      Bishop is gonna be a stud.

    Gotta go with Tramon or Sitton, in fact I think both will make it but would anybody be truly surprised if all three of our cornerbacks make it into the pro bowl? (keeping in mind that they won’t be available to play in it due to that other game . . . the Superbowl.
