Barnes named to All-Joe team

Posted Jan 27, 2012

SAN DIEGO – Outside linebacker Antwan Barnes is San Diego’s lone representative on USA Today’s 2011 All-Joe team.

Barnes made 11 sacks, started his first four NFL games and generated a team-best 15 quarterback hits during the best season of his five-year career.

The 6-foot-1, 251-pound pass rusher played an unexpected role on defense as Larry English (foot) missed most of the season and Shaun Phillips (foot) missed a career-high four games.

Barnes played better than advertised against the run and tied for 11th in the NFL in sacks. He sacked Baltimore quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor a career-high four times in a late-season 34-14 win over the Ravens, AFC Championship Game participants.

“San Diego found a new pass rusher as journeyman had nine sacks in his final 10 games,” USA Today’s Nate Davis wrote.

The All-Joe team’s outside linebackers include San Francisco’s Aldon Smith, Houton’s Connor Barwin and Baltimore’s Jarret Johnson.

The All-Joe team, created in 1992 by Larry Weisman, “honors the unsung Joes of the NFL … (the) annual squad celebrates first-rate players who receive second-rate recognition.”

Only players who have never been Pro Bowlers are eligible.

Now, you can stay in touch with the team anytime, anywhere, on your mobile device with the official app of the San Diego Chargers.
