Call it the Bye Week Era midseason ...
Since the NFL went to bye weeks in 1990, "midseason" usually is considered to be Week 8 heading into Week 9. Well, guess what? We're hurtling straight for Week 9. With that, my editor asked that I readdress my Preseason All-Pro Team by selecting a Midseason All-Pro Team, which you'll find below.
Now, before we get to the names, just a couple of notes:
» This list is not meant to predict The Associated Press's season-ending 2013 All-Pro Team. No, it's merely who we think will have played the best by the end of the season, first-team style.
» There are a few names that reflect a nod to the future -- i.e., the players' stats don't stand out among others at their respective positions, but we think they'll pull ahead as the season progresses. (Hint: One is a really good linebacker who missed some time at the beginning of the 2013 campaign.)
With that, take a look and let us know what you think ... @Harrison_NFL is the place. We read 'em all.
