AP Voters Have No Clue What They Are Doing

1

If there was any doubt that the AP voters don't know jack about football, it's now been confirmed that the 49ers Justin Smith is an All-Pro at 2 positions. He's a second team All-Pro (with 9 votes) at the position that he actually plays, DE. But he's also a first team All-Pro (with 35 votes) at a position that he's didn't take a single snap at... during his entire career: Defensive Tackle. This causes me to have some serious questions about which members of the press actually have a vote in the process, because they clearly don't know the difference between a 3-4 DE and a 4-3 DT. Also makes you wonder how many other anomalies like this happen every year.
