If you're going to argue with SI.com's Dr. Z about All-Pros, you better bring it, because he watches almost every game and gets additional footage on players he's not sure about.

Below I've listed each player Z chose for the Sports Illustrated All-Pro team that differed from the AP squad.  

WR: Reggie Wayne and Wes Welker over Terrell Owens
OT: Jason Peters and Flozell Adams over Walter Jones and Matt Light
OG: Jason Brown over Alan Faneca and Steve Hutchison
RB: No LaDainian Tomlinson
DE: Aaron Kampman over Patrick Kerney
OLB: Lance Briggs over Mike Vrabel
ILB: Jon Beason over Lofa Tatupu
CB: Terence Newman and Will Allen over Asante Samuel and Antonio Cromartie
Punter: Shane Lechler over Andy Lee
Kicker: Kris Brown over Rob Bironas

I rarely question Z's choices, but I had to give him an earful this week about omitting Terrell Owens. T.O. has never exactly filled my passion bucket, but despite the drops, he's the main reason Dallas exploded offensively this season. No T.O., no Tony Romo in the Pro Bowl and no Jessica Simpson in Cabo because Dallas would have been a wild-card team. Then what would we talk about?

Dr. Z has also been criticized for leaving Tomlinson off, but I agree, L.T. didn't do as much this year. Let's get the debate going. How do you guys feel about Dr. Z's choices?
