The Pro Bowl Push: Why Andy Janovich is 'the ultimate team player'

With **voting for the 2019 Pro Bowl underway**, it's our job to make sure Broncos fans are as well informed as possible before they do their civic NFL duty. So, to provide valuable perspective for the outstanding seasons some of the Broncos' top players are putting forward this year, we asked their teammates why they should make the Pro Bowl. This time, we spoke to Andy Janovich's teammates, who think he's as good a fullback as there is.

"Jano's the best in the league in my opinion. You want to talk about a guy who puts it all on the line for his teammates all the time — that's special teams and as a fullback. He's made some incredible blocks this year. He definitely deserves it." — wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders

"I think everybody in this [locker] room knows Andy deserves to be in the Pro Bowl. He's blocking his ass off, he's selfless, he puts his body on the line — and not just on offense, but on special teams. The man works. He'll never say anything; he [just] goes home. He's a great dude. A great dude that deserves it and deserves a lot of respect. He gets all the respect from his teammates, but he deserves a lot of respect coming from the NFL. They need to take notice of a man like that." — running back Phillip Lindsay

"[Janovich is so successful] because he's not going to stop. It doesn't matter what play of the game it is, how many times you've collided; he's coming at you full speed every play. I think he's got to be ready for it going into a game, and I feel sorry for opposing linebackers because it's going to be a long day for you." — inside linebacker Todd Davis

"Jano is the ultimate team player. You could tell Jano to go put his head in a 330-pound D-tackle's knee, and he's going to go do that. They ask him to do so much on special teams, and he does it, and he does it at a high level. He pushes everyone else around him. And on the offensive side of the ball, the dude just smacks people. He doesn't get catches, really; he doesn't get the touches. But he's willing to just go out there and smack people to get other people open. That's the thing that I think makes him so special at the position he plays." — wide receiver Courtland Sutton
