"Dr. Z's" All-Pro team was pretty good overall (Auditioning for the Eternal Highlight Film. Jan. 5), but Los Angeles Rams Cornerback Pat Thomas "gets a slight edge over Kansas City's Gary Green"? I think K.C.'s Gary Barbaro is one of the best cornerbacks in the league. And Paul Zimmerman should remember Seattle Linebacker Michael Jackson for next year's All-Pro team.
Walla Walla, Wash.
Pat Thomas at cornerback? I suggest you try Lemar Parrish.

Picking Pat Tilley over James Lofton at wide receiver was a mistake. In terms of number of yards gained on receptions. Lofton led the NFC with 1,226 on 71 catches and was the third-leading receiver in the league.

How can Paul Zimmerman pick Rich Saul over Mike Webster? I've been watching football for more than 17 years, and Mike Webster is clearly the best center ever to step on a football field.

Paul Zimmerman picked Bruce Laird of the Baltimore Colts as his All-Pro strong safety. I couldn't agree more!

Who else besides Billy Sims for Rookie of the Year? Buffalo's Joe Cribbs. He did more for the Bills than Sims did for the Lions. Also the Bills had a better record and made the playoffs.
St. Augustine, Fla.
I can tell you who else for Rookie of the Year: David Woodley of the Miami Dolphins. A part-timer at LSU in his senior year, he came to the Dolphins and took over for the injured regular quarterback and beat out the second-string quarterback. Woodley started the final 10 games, led the Dolphins to a 35-14 rout of the Rams, took the Chargers into overtime and appears to be a savior for the talented Dolphin receivers, who crave more balls thrown their way.
I can't believe you left out Russ Francis of the New England Patriots. He is All-World. He also blocks better than Kellen Winslow or Dave Casper, a must for a tight end.
How could Paul Zimmerman pick Dave Jennings over Oakland's Ray Guy for his All-Pro punter? Also, shouldn't he at least have mentioned the Raiders' Tom Flores for Coach of the Year? I guess his choices aren't all that outrageous when one considers he predicted that Buffalo. Atlanta and Oakland would finish at the bottom of their divisions and that the Washington Redskins would win the NFC East ( Paul Zimmerman's Scouting Reports, Sept. 8).
