LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor and Champ Bailey capped superb seasons by unanimously making The Associated Press NFL All-Pro team announced today.

Guard Alan Faneca was the only Steelers player on the list.

Tomlinson, San Diego's record-setting running back, also won the AP Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year awards. Miami end Taylor was the Defensive Player of the Year.

Bailey tied for the league lead with 10 interceptions even though opponents tried to avoid throwing to the Broncos cornerback's side of the field.


"My whole idea to go out on a Sunday is to be a pain in the butt for the other team," said Taylor, who had 62 tackles, 13 1/2 sacks, 14 quarterback hurries, two interceptions -- both returned for TDs -- 11 passes defensed, 10 fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered.

"If I can be a pain in their butt and give somebody a headache, then more times than not, it's going to work out well for myself."

It worked out so well for him, Tomlinson -- who set NFL records for points with 186, touchdowns with 31 and TDs rushing with 28 -- and Bailey that they received all 50 votes from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL.

Faneca is just the ultimate professional. The guy kicks *** year in and year and is worth every cent we pay him.
