not like it matters or anything but....

Taylor may go to Pro Bowl

Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor has been named an alternate to the Pro Bowl, which will be played a week after the Super Bowl.

Troy Polamalu, James Harrison and James Farrior are already on the AFC Pro Bowl team, and Taylor could join his teammates in Hawaii as an injury replacement.

Taylor has never played in the Pro Bowl.

"It looks good on your resume but I got over it, Taylor said. "I'd rather be a Super Bowl corner than a Pro Bowl corner."

Taylor, who led Steelers cornerbacks with 75 tackles and was first on the team with 14 passes defended during the regular season, is expected to play opposite Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald in Super Bowl XLIII.

Taylor will be making his second Super Bowl start. He had a key interception in the Steelers' 21-10 win against Seattle in Super Bowl XL.

"I feel like my best years are ahead of me,'" said Taylor, 28.

I've always said, if there's a man that deserves a pro bowl recognition, it's Ike Taylor
