There were several close calls for my All-AFC East team. For example, there was a trio of good defensive tackles: Vince Wilfork of the Patriots and Paul Soliai and Randy Starks of the Dolphins. The final spot came down to Soliai and Starks, and I think Starks had a slightly better year. Jets safety LaRon Landry over Miami's Reshad Jones was another toss-up. The offensive line play in the division was inconsistent this year and made for some tough decisions.
