Re: 2007 Pro Bowlers- Grins and Groans
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.
