Default Pitt and Philly lead All Pro Squad

The top two teams in each conference led the way with three All Pro selections each. Alan Faneca, Jeff Hartings, and James Farrior make the squad for the Steelers and TO, Brian Dawkins, and Lito Sheppard made it for Philly. Lito Sheppard? I am shocked he made first team All Pro. I saw almost all of his games this year and thought he had a breakout season that established himself as a quality corner. But, I never saw him as one of the elite corners in the league. No real surprises on who made the list other than Sheppard:

QB - Manning (unanimous selection)
RB - Tomlinson, Curtis Martin
FB - William Henderson
WR - TO, Muhammad
TE - Antonio Gates
T - Walter Jones, Willie Anderson and Willie Roaf (tie)
G - Faneca, Brian Waters
C - Jeff Hartings

DE - Dwight Freeney, Julius Peppers
DT - Kevin Williams, Richard Seymour
OLB - Takeo Spikes, Derrick Brooks
ILB - James Farrior, Ray Lewis
CB - Ronde Barber, Champ Bailey and Lito Sheppard (tie)
S - Ed Reed, Brian Dawkins

PK - Adam Vinatieri
KR - Eddie Drummond
P - Shan Lechler

I don't see how Sheppard is a surprise. He is a playmaking corner, covers and tackles above average.

How do you get a tie? And who picks these teams?

This isn't directed towards doublee or Doug, it's more of an out-there question because I've always wondered this.
