Yea I know, thought maybe he would get lucky like some of the QB's with 20 2 yd td tosses.

Suisham missed three kicks this year. One was a bad snap, and the other two were 53 yarders. He was as automatic as could be.

Congrats to Pouncey, and especially to Heath who deserves it more than anyone. Disappointed Clark and Sweet Cheeks didn't make it.

the chiefs have a lot of talent on their roster, its mind boggling how they are dead last.

And that earns him 12th place overall in the league. He's 27 for 30, 1 for 3 on 50+ yarders. Now compare that to the top kickers, like the two going to the Pro Bowl. Dawson is 28 for 29, but 6 for 6 on 50+ yard kicks. Walsh is 32 for 35 and 9 for 9 on 50+ yard efforts, with his longest being 56 yards, plus a pair of 55 yarders. The rest of the top 10 has similar numbers, and those guys are on a tier Suisham has yet to match. These past couple games when Ben took sacks on the other end of the 50, one of these guys in Suisham's place might have made a FG a possibility there. He's serviceable, but when we have cap room and a pick to spare, there are plenty of upgrades out there.

I see that Ben and Suisham are first alternates for the Pro Bowl. Ben actually has a great chance to be named because of the 3 QB's ahead of him(Manning,Brady and Schaub) one of them will more than likely be in the Super Bowl.

Andrew Luck deserved it, before BR7.

I thought that Luck might be the first alternate, but he led the NFL in turnovers so that might have hurt him the voting. Who knows, Ben might opt out of the game to heal up and then probably Luck will be named to the team.

Luck??? Luck?!?!?!?!?! Go watch some more ESPN.

The Colts made the playoffs with the easiest schedule in the league. They beat TWO good teams all year - the Packers and the Vikings.

Players with a 75 quarterback rating don't deserve to be in the Probowl - JUST SO YOU KNOW.

THIS JUST IN!!! MARK SANCHEZ HAD A HIGHER COMPLETION PCT THAN ANDREW LUCK!!!
