NFL All-Pro team 2012: Calvin Johnson makes first team

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been named to the AP's NFL All-Pro first team.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been named to the Associated Press' 2012 NFL All-Pro team. Specifically, Johnson was named to the first team. Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was named to the second team.

For Johnson, this is the third consecutive year he has been named to the AP All-Pro team. He was on the second team in 2010 and the first team in 2011. It's no surprise that he is on the first team again this year considering he set the single-season receiving record and nearly crossed the 2,000-yard mark.

What is surprising is that Johnson wasn't a unanimous selection. He received 49 votes out of a possible 50, and it turns out that FOX's Tim Ryan was the only person who didn't vote for Johnson. Ryan sees the Lions quite a bit as part of his work as an announcer with FOX, so I'm not sure how he can justify leaving Johnson off his ballot. I suppose this is simply yet another example of why I think FOX's announcers are awful.

In any case, congratulations to Megatron for his latest honor. I'm sure there are going to be many more in the coming weeks.
