so who was snubbed? any suprises? you glad to see somebody finally make it in? who didnt deserve it (ogden)? any notables?

looks like the browns took a hit with joe thomas not making it (freaking ogden???) k. winslow jr coulda very well made it if the names gates and gonzales werent on the ballot.

sweet justice for braylon edwards to edge out chad johnson. i hate to admit it, but edwards is good.

the biggest shame is that fred taylor didnt finally make it. hes just as good as he showed last weekend. always has been and hes shaken that "injury prone" stigma that has plagued his career.

notable: sf punter andy lee. you know, the one we signed in the offseason for 6 years and $7 million? frisco matched the offer to the restricted free agent and should be thanking us for doing a great contract for them. in 4 years this deal will be a bargain.

I'm thrilled that Chad Johnson didn't make it. That HOF jacket stunt is going to bite him in the ass for a long time.

Absolutely.

The thing with Davis is that Arizona insisted playing him at tackle when he was obviously a guard...

Anyway, the reason Taylor doesn't get in is because of the quality of backs in the AFC... He is good, but three or four guys have always been better than him year to year. It is ashame, but nothing can really be done about it...

I think Faneca and Polamalu got in on name recognition more than anything... Hampton deserves to be in more than those two and I don't see how Williams got in over Hampton this year... Previous years sure but when I have seen Jamall this season he hasn't been up to his standard. I guess just more name recognition.

how does lance briggs make it over ernie simms?

briggs.....94 tackles.....2 sacks......2 ff......1 rec....0pass def......0 int
simms....122tackles...1 sack.........3 ff......0 rec....3 pass def.....1 int

no wonder there's so little interest in the PB.....i thought it was SUPPOSED to be about the best players at thier position THAT year.....not what they have done in the past. they should have a point system based on stats,that determines who goes.

That is the biggest snub to me and not because he bitch slapped our D last weekend. Can you imagine his career stats if he had stayed healthy?

TJ Housh la bamba is the best receiver on that team. He's tougher than Chad and has better hands than Chad.
Maybe CJ's next touchdown celebration he could do the James Brown with the HOF jacket and hold it on TJ while he walks around. TJ could then throw the jacket off and break into a jitterbug. :jammin:Now THAT would be a quality TD celebration.

I agree Fred Taylor should have got in, but Jacksonville is not a big media market and Fred is not a big name. He is probably the quietest 10,000 yard back in history.

Big Snack should be in

Kerry Rhodes has been a monster this season, maybe better than Bob Sanders.

and.....too many Dallas players, that's just fan voting I guess. Is Nick Folk really the best kicker in the NFC? I can't think of many but I don't think he is

Donald Driver is a good wideout, but I think this season, Greg Jennings is more deserving.

I said it in another thread - Jeff Reed should be the PK for the AFC, not Bironas. This season, there hasn't been a better clutch (and mud and muck) kicker than Reed.

james harrison on the first pro bowl as a starter.. i think he has done very well in the replacement of JP... people say who is Harrison?

if some players make it on reputation alone, brian urlacher is the biggest snub in the history of the probowl.

not only should he make it on reputation alone (if ray lewis is the mlb standard of the afc) but he is still the best mlb in the nfc.

patrick willis made it because he leads all mlb in tackles. id say he earned his spot. but the rest of his statline is pretty much blank... 1 sack and 1 forced fumble and recovery.

lofa tatupu made it on nothing but his 4 interceptions (3 of which came in a single game). nothing much else on the rest of his statline.... 1 sack, 3 forced fumbles.

urlacher- 5 sacks, 11 passes defended, 3 int, 2 fumbles recovered.

i laugh at people who call urlacher 'overrated". chicago is barely crap with him, and would be nothing w/o him. the team is pretty much built around him.

I love that James Harrison made it from us, I don't think we regret letting Joey Porter going now right?

So, with Parker's unfortunate injury, does Fred Taylor get the nod after all?
