Im wondering how Keisel made it, he's not a big name and he's not a stat machine so it doesn't make much sense to me unless Steeler Nation just repped him really hard

Keisel has had a very good year from a players standpoint. No doubt coaches and player votes got him as an alternate, if he started more games he might have gotten in. Keisel has like 7 or 8 pass deflections, he had that 79 yard interception return, which was the longest of the entire league for a couple weeks, it might still be the longest, I don't know. He only has 16 solo tackles, but they seem to have been all behind the LOS.

I say the only reason Timmons doesn't make it is because of his drop off as of late. Farrior was non existant the first part of the season, only having like 20 tackles after 5 or 6 games. He has a total of 100 something now, so it shows you how good his last 7-8 games have been, very surprising he isn't even an alternate.

im shocked that Timmons isnt there. i thought it was a gurentee. Ike and Farrior both deserved it as well but Timmons being as young as he is and having such an impact year should of been a lock

Timmons maybe...Check Farriors stats no way ...Ike is so looked over. Im not sure how Keisel made it. He missed a lot of time.

Wow, shocked Keisel made it. The dude didn't even play half of the season. I still think it's a crime Timmons OR Farrior wasn't even considered. Mayo? REALLY? What a crock of shit. Ike gets f*cked every year.

i'm not shocked Timmons didn't make it. Remember guys...this is a popularity contest. Glad Hampton got recognition. He's non-existent in the pass rush but critically important at stopping the run and he's damn good at it.

I think they should just vote the teams, give the awards, and not have the games anymore. They're completely pointless and no one is even trying very hard because they don't want to get injured.

I would have never guessed those 4. If you would have told me the Steelers had 4 alternates in addition to the 3 who already made it, I would have guessed.
Timmons
Wallace
Ike
Hampton

No Wallace? I will forever boycott the NFL Pro Bowl. It's dumb anyway. Like someone said, popularity contest.

With two starting D lineman out most of the season and the Steelers having the 3rd best run defense in NFL history, how does Casey Hampton not make the pro bowl?

There is no better pulling guard in the NFL than Kemo. He should be going to the pro bowl.

I got an idea. Lets just replace the Pro Bowl roster with our whole team and pull everybody else from all other teams.
c'mon guys...we can only send so many :flap:

He's a great pulling guard, but he's a terrible pass blocker and an average run blocker when he isn't pulling. You can't go to the pro bowl with 1 good skill...
