As the regular season starts winding down, it's probably not too soon to look at the most meaningless All Star game in sports-the NFL Pro Bowl.
Still it's an honor for players to be recognized by their fans and their peers, to be voted one of the best.
For once, the Browns have a chance for multiple Pro Bowlers this year. In fact, the only Pro Bowler from the Browns since coming back was Jamir Miller in '01, I believe. His career ended the next season when he ripped his knee up.
Here's a list of Browns who have a shot at the Pro Bowl:
Should make it:
KR Joshua Cribbs
TE Kellen Winslow
WR Braylon Edwards
OL Eric Steinbach
On the Bubble:
OL Joe Thomas
QB Derrick Anderson.
Not bat, for a team that didn't look like much at the beginning of the year.

I'm not able to follow the NFL the way you all do, so I can't say who should go to the Pro Bowl or not. Maybe Big Ben could have a shot at the Pro Bowl this year, as he definitely improved over last year's horrible season.
As for coaches (I don't know if the public can nominate coaches or if coaches can even be nominated at all), I'd say Wade Phillips for the NFC (I hate the Cowboys, but I do give credit to him for having turned the team from one that had its QB botch the snap on a vital field goal attempt during the 06 playoffs to a possible Super Bowl XLII contender), and Mike Tomlin for the AFC (the guy had an outstanding season as an NFL rookie-headcoach).

Not many for Houston.
Andre Johnson is a Pro-Bowl player, but probably won't make it this year as he has missed most of the season. The only person that should be a lock is DeMeco Ryans - 3rd most tackles in the NFL. Our kicker Kris Brown has a remote chance. He is right up there with the leaders, but since they probably only take 1 kicker, he probably will not make it since our team has been so bad this year. Daunte Robinson was having a pro-bowl year (again) until he ripped his hamstring off the bone and is gone for the season.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 1): Maybe Big Ben could have a shot at the Pro Bowl this year, as he definitely improved over last year's horrible season.
Big Ben should make at least 2nd string. Maybe 3rd behind Peyton Manning.
Quoting LTU932 (Reply 1): Mike Tomlin for the AFC (the guy had an outstanding season as an NFL rookie-headcoach).
Is that to imply that we'll lose the AFC Title game? I believe that the losing coach in the title games is the coach for the NFC/AFC conference...
Other Pro Bowlers from the Steelers:
RB Willie Parker (starter - leads AFC in yards rushing)
TE Heath Miller
WR Hines Ward
WR Santonio Holmes
G Alan Feneca (although he has been weak in recent games)
SS Troy Polamalu
LB James Harrison (Starter)
LB James Farrior
CB Ike Taylor (I believe he made a key play to preserve the shutout against Seattle by breaking up/intercepting a pass in the endzone)
There, with QB Big Ben, that's 10 from my team... although I think about 6 of those will make it in...
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Peyton Manning (prob. going to hit at least 30 TD's AGAIN...and will prob hit 4,000+ passing yards AGAIN...woo-hoo!)
Joseph Addai (hopefully, he's a hell of a player)
Bob Sanders (amazing, if underrated, player)
Usually Adam Vinateri would go in that list but probably not this year....too inconsistent.
Drew Brees (maybe...)
