I think its stupid that ppl arent voting Ben in there for a QB. Honestly are there THAT many Peyton Manning fans in the world??

:rolleyes:

most football experts would agree that faneca is more good than "popular".

i would say kevin mawae has EARNED his way on that list. good job for an old guy.

despite an average season it looks like brady is still "popular" too.

hey it looks like polamalu has had a rather popular season!

congrats to the EIGHT steelers who have made that list.

and with 19-20 int's i think ben can only make it as an allternate. with mcnair making it last year nothing is out of the question though.

Aside from a few positions where there are players who clearly deserve to go, the Pro Bowl is a stupid popularity contest. They should go back to letting the coaches pick the players.

I think coaches and players get to make their picks in the next couple of stages.

I have to admit, I dont know how they weight the player/coach votes - as there are obviously alot less of them compared to fans.

Not a massive fan of the Probowl anyway, but its a conversation piece, I suppose.

Nice to see a few Raiders in there, considering.

Lechler is a lock... there is no one better.

Burgess should go, but he probably won't.

Sapp is having a great season. Too bad it's all for nothing.

At first glance Sapp looks like a popularity pick - but he has actually had a huge season and has been a big part of helping the Raiders get back to being a good defensive unit - and to think thats without any help at all from the offense!

Burgess is one of the best (if not the best) pure pass rusher in the NFL.

Freeney gets alot of press, but the Colts generally play with a good lead which is condusive to pass rushing stats (plus Freeney has only 2.5 sacks this year and his run D is non-existent) - not something we can say about the Raiders whilst Burgess has been there.

26 sacks in 28 games is a phenomonal return and makes the Burgess one of the best FA acquisitions in recent years.

One problem I have is how they lump 3-4 DE's in with DT's. That's retarded. If it wasn't like that Luis Castillo would be a shoe in, but he'll probably never make in the pro-bowl.

Also, how many QB's make it? 3?

The Pro Bowl blows and I don't even watch out. But I'm still interested in who makes the team. But every year some players make the team on pure rep alone. Like Ray Lewis who makes it every year.

I still don't see why people hate the Pro Bowl so much. I like watching Peyton Manning pass to Chad Johnson and Tom Brady handing off the LT. Idk, it's just fun to see all the best playing in one game (even if they aren't trying their hardest). The only reason I can think that people would hate it is because they are expecting a typical hard hitting game. If you just look at it as a fun game, then you might like it.

Awesome so Rivers might get in the Pro Bowl as long as Palmer sucks the rest of the season.

And ESPN BETTER show the NFL Skills challenge things. I don't remember if I watched them on NFL Network or ESPN last year, but I liked watching them. If it's NFL Network i'm gonna blow up Time Warner. :banging:

I love how Merriman is dominating all the other linebackers, despite the fact that he missed a quarter of the season for steroids this year. I mean, does nobody even give a shit about that, or what?
There's a reason he missed a quarter of the season...

Steroids.

You know, performance enhancers.

Illegal substances.

Why should voters award him for cheating?

I don't think it has anything to do with the number of Peytoon fans, hon. Ben simply hasn't had a Pro Bowl-esque season. I love him to pieces, but I vote for the players who I feel deserve to be there. I didn't vote for Ben either this season. I went with Brady, Peyton and Rivers.

Well, the job is to pick players that will to the best job for the AFC. And I know that means other players will be taken. But I can't stand seeing Peyton Manning on the list. I think seeing him on every other commercial airing is enough. Altough I am happy for the Steelers who got to go. Congrats to them :cheers:. The AFC better win this year.

The sad truth is... no, they don't.

The other truth is... Merriman is a beast, steroids or not. He is hands down one of the best in the game... no matter what anyone thinks of him.

This year, Ben hasn't been worthy of a trip to the Pro Bowl. What pissed me off was last year, when it looked like the NFL was practically breaking their necks to keep him out of the game.

First Carson Palmer gets called in as a substitute because of injury, then Trent Green, then Steve McNair?

Steve McNair?!?! From a 4-12 team???

The only thing I can think of is that maybe Ben's thumb injury was keeping them from selectin him, but they sure didn't say much about it. Otherwise, what a hosejob.they did select him to replace jake plummer i believe. he declined so thats how they wound up with s. mcnair.

Palmer was the #2 QB on the pro bowl roster...he got replaced because of injury, not the other way around.
