Sorry so frustrating and excuse my french but wtf did Aaron Smith not get selected to the Pro-Bowl and why did Dwight Freeney get selected over him?

Because he's a STEELERS player and Goodell has a limit on how well the Steelers can do in a single year.

Probably because the Pro Bowl has been nothing more than a popularity contest for years now. Let's face it, did Troy really deserve to go to Hawaii in '06 and '07?

Take out the fan vote and Smith gets in. Freeney is a household name due to incessent Colts knobslobbing by the media, Smith is not.

Worry not over individual awards and league merits. Concern yourself only with team success and you will sleep better nightly.

Its the curse of the 3-4 D end.

Even though every single talking head on ESPN and FOX Sports all know that the 3-4 D ends deserve more credit and keep talking up Aaron Smith...the "voters" don't pick him because he doesn't make highlights on ESPN and isn't a household name. Our Linebackers and Troy basically get all the credit on Defense.

How can Hampton not be recognized being the anchor of the best rushing defense in the league?

It happens. Whatever. What does not kill us, just makes us stronger, and meaner...and angrier and we hit harder for it.

. True Dat. Its the same as why good blocking TE's and run stuffing NT's rarely make it. I really doubt that Smith cares.

Aaron Smith will get the best revenge possible......Take down the Colts if we face them again. You obviously have to be a fan to truly appreciate how valuable Smith is to our defense.

Yeah, he will know how much his fans appreciate him. Anyway less players in the Pro-Bowl the better as its being played a week before the Superbowl. :-|

I'd like for people to look at this at deciding a pro bowl DE- The Colts run defense sucks ass, the steelers run D is one of the top 3 in the league.

Unfortunately it is all about sacks and popularity.

Doesn't matter, we all know smith is wayyy better than freeney

Look at the name and who you are that is why he wasn't selected.
