I see that the Pro Bowl roster was released today.
It seems that a shrewd GM with some stones can drastically improve a roster by bringing in talented players via trade or free agency. The Jets nabbed 3 2009 Pro Bowlers prior to the start of this season (Alan Faneca, Kris Jenkins and some washed up primadonna named Favre) and another (Thomas Jones) before the start of last year.
To be fair, Ted's 2008 masterpiece did net Pro Bowls for Charles Woodson (acquired via free agency back when Ted displayed some stones every once in a while) and Nick Collins.
I guess Aaron Rodgers' fine fantasy football stats didn't sway the voters, perhaps on account of the fact that he's behind the wheel of the 4th worst team in the NFC.
