It pissed me off that the media kept saying he was the #1 LB in the league for his first several seasons. He had less help than Bobby which is why he was able to be more of "the guy", it was easier for him to pick up the slack of crappier teammates around him on defense. Less competition on his sides.
6 All Pro selections really is an incredible feat - less than 50 players in NFL history have achieved it. Wagner only turned 30 this year also - I have no doubt he has at least 3-4 more years of elite level play in him and the possibility of further awards, particularly as LB isn't a position with any other obvious standouts.
On a separate note I see today's opponent Aaron Donald also achieved his 6th All Pro award in his 7th season. Given his elite level of play and conditioning I could honestly see him making a run for Jerry Rice/Jim Otto's record of 10 at this rate - though from a purely selfish standpoint I hope he forgets how to play or decides to retire ASAP
