Here is the list. Is there anyone you felt was snubbed? Everyone made the pro bowl who I thought was going to make it.

People are complaining that the Bengals didn't send anyone to the Pro Bowl. Please realize that the Pro Bowl is about individual performance and numbers ONLY, not team performance. That's why people lie Josh Cribbs and Nnamdi Asomugha made the rosters.

And? So? It's better to have it on performance than on popularity, if you rerally want the best.

And are you telling me Josh Cribbs doesn't deserve it somehow, because his team is bad? He's probably the most electrifying player in the league right now, and I really hope Mike Holmgren and the new Browns' brass next year make him a tailback to take advantage of his talent. He's just a stud.

Kudo's to Browns' LT Joe Thomas for making his 3rd Pro Bowl in 3 NFL seasons. He, Eric Steinbach and Alex Mack are anchoring what is turning into one impressive offensive line.

So glad to see Julius Peppers and DeAngelo Williams make the list... I just hope Williams will be injury free and able to play.

Only 1 player from the Giants was selected (center Shaun O'Hara). If anyone from the Giants should of gone to the Pro Bowl I would of guessed Steve Smith. I thought Eli had a outside shot of getting selected. His numbers were pretty good this year.

I think Matt Schaub was deserving, but not quite a full snub. He is in the top three in every quarterback category in the AFC. At the end of the day, his stats are better than Brady's or Rivers, but he lost out on popularity and overall team performance. Only if we had a running back and a defense!

Bit of a BS statement. It has a lot to do with popularity and name recognition. That is why for NFC TE Jason Witten was selected (only 1 TD all season) and Brent Celek ( 8 TDs, slightly lower yardage numbers) got the shaft. Visanthe Shiancoe had 10 TDs, but way less yardage, so I can see how he got skipped I guess.

Of course... Randy Moss leads all recievers in TDs, and only Jones-Drew and Adrian Peterson have scored more TDs this season, yet Moss does not get selected. This is not as big a deal to me as the TE scenario above, because I think the AFC WRs all deserve to go. Just pointing out that it does not always just have to do with Stats.

What's the point of the Pro Bowl? Especially now that the NFL had the bright idea of playing the Pro Bowl before the Superbowl. The Pro Bowl is supposed to be played AFTER the Superbowl!

People never watched or cared about the pro bowl but now that it is the beginning of the super bowl week in the city the super bowl is being played in there should be a bigger audience. But now some players probably wont be able to play since they will have a super bowl to play the next week. But it is better then playing it a week after the super in Hawaii when no one cares about football.

I think it's a smart idea to make this part of Super Bowl week for that reason. This officially will kick off the week pretty much.

My 2cents on the roster selection, I am a little shocked that Harrison is in and Woodley is out. Altho, I guess the selection was made before Woodley picked up a couple more sacks to surpass Harrison as the Steelers' sacks leader... Dumerville does not surprise me one bit tho. He's a beast! I think that besides him that there were a few other candidates more worthy of Harrison and Woodley.

There isn't one now. Before the only point was that it was an excuse to go to Hawaii.

Just a lame attempt to make the most irrelevant all-star game in all of sports a bit less irrelevant. The problem is that all-star games should be irrelevant.

Tons of guys didn't go before, and I don't really blame them.

I'm hoping that the Saints end up with none of the representatives playing in the Pro Bowl. Why? Because they should be playing in the Super Bowl the next weekend.

Not in Baseball, where the league winning the game gets home field advantage for the World Series.  Wink

I admit though, since the Superbowl, along with the rest of the playoffs, is traditionally played in a single game knockout system, using something like MLB does to determine who gets homefield advantage for the Superbowl as a goal for the Pro Bowl would be useless, since the Superbowl is usually played on neutral ground. I'm saying usually because there is always the chance that the home team from that location gets to the SB, though since the SB is played (for the second time in 3 years no less) in Miami, we can rule that out this time.

In fact, why the hell is the SB being played in Miami again after only 3 years? Couldn't they have chosen a different venue?

It is still irrelevant as anything more than an interesting thing to watch. "Making it count" was possibly the single dumbest thing Bud Selig ever did, and that is saying something. (to be fair, his pretending that he didn't passively allow steroids at least comes close)

Their options are kind of narrow since all outdoor venues in the North are out.

Well, next year it will be in Dallas so I don't think we have to worry about that.  Wink

Steve would've been there if Delhomme got benched earlier
