2012 NFL All-Pro team: Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews honored

Tom Lynn

Two members of the Green Bay Packers have been named to the All-Pro team, though fans might not be thrilled that they're not first teamers.

Two members of the Green Bay Packers have been named to the NFL's All-Pro team, as you might have expected. You also might have expected that neither of them is first-team All-Pro, and you might have some gripes with that.

Aaron Rodgers was named as the quarterback on the All-Pro second team, behind Peyton Manning. Even though Rodgers has a better passer rating, Manning has arguably a bit less offensive talent to work with, and came on stronger as the year went on. Voters had the Broncos' late-season domination, instead of their early-season struggles in mind when voting, for sure.

Also named to the team was Clay Matthews, who enjoyed a return to form this season after a mediocre 2011 campaign. Von Miller of the Denver Broncos and Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers were named to the first team. Those two and Matthews are joined by Chad Greenway, Ahmad Brooks and DeMarcus Ware on the list of outside linebackers.
