Dez would have definitely made the All-Pro team if he had played the 1st 8 games like the last 8 games.
Dez is probably the most talented player on the team -- the downside is he plays at a position where the difference between "good" players and "great" players doesn't have a huge impact on teams winning games.
Having a top #1 WR in the NFL really doesn't guarantee you anything in the NFL these days -- ask Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Brandon Marshall, etc...
In fact, go back and look at the Superbowl winners the past 10 years and find a top 3-4 All-Pro WR.... I think you'll have to go all the way back to 1999 to Torry Holt with the Rams.
