For the second year in a row, Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari received second-team All-Pro honors.
Bakhtiari received 10 votes. Los Angeles Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth was the first-team All-Pro left tackles with 24 votes.
Ironically, despite being an All-Pro — and a well-deserved one at that — Bakhtiari did not make the Pro Bowl. We all know that the Pro Bowl is a joke, but Bakhtiari certainly took note of it.
“I think it’d be pretty funny, if I was a one-time Pro Bowler, but a two-time All-Pro,” Bakhtiari said.
The only other member of the Packers who received any All-Pro votes was Jeff Janis as a special teamer. He received two votes, but that wasn’t good enough for All-Pro honors.
That’d be funny if Jeff Janis was only the second Packer to make All Pro. Kind of like John Kuhn going All Pro with 85 rushing yards and one touchdown. No, that’s not for one game. That’s for the entire season.
A guy who I feel was completely snubbed and should’ve been a pro bowler/all pro player, Blake Martinez. Led the NFL in tackles and for anyone who watched the packers he was the only guy on our defense who seemed to always know what he was supposed to do, and then went out and got it done. When/If the packers defense improves I think he’ll start to get the recognition he deserves
I’d like to see some consistency….something more than one good season, something more than a handful of decent games here and there. Something other the the hero of preseason.
That’s why Bak get’s an All- Pro nod, he’s doing it consistently. No one gets voted to the HOF because they had 2 really good seasons out of 12.
