no reason to insult Beason like that
Let's look at who was in front of Steve Smith(NYG) and Beason.
NFC WR's: Larry Fitz, Sidney Rice, Miles Austin, Desean Jackson
Fitz is obviously a top 3 WR, probably #1 next to Andre Johnson. Sidney Rice had a HUGE year, and obviously deserved it. D-Jax broke records for most long yard TD's.
NFC ILB's: Patrick Willis, Jonathan Vilma, London Fletcher
Willis is obviously the best ILB in the league, no problems there. Vilma is where the problem starts. Fletcher deserved it, and I'm happy he was elected in.
Beason: 111 solo tackles, #2 in the league. 3 ints, 3 sacks, 10 pass deflections, 1 FF
Vilma: 87 solo tackles, #20 in the league. 3 ints, 11 pass deflections.
The ONLY reason Vilma got in was because he is on the Saints. It's obvious to everyone, not only Panther fans, that the #1 ILB is Willis, and #2 is Beason and it has been that way since they came into the league.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not taking anything away from Smith(NYG) because he is a talented receiver. I'm just sick and f**king tired of people using his ONE pro bowl as an argument for why he's better than our Smitty, who had Jake throwing to him.
