Default Re: 4 Steelers named to Pro Bowl

PITTSBURGH (AP) ? On a day that four Pittsburgh Steelers learned they're going back to the Pro Bowl, much of the talk in their locker room was about who isn't going.

Wide receiver Hines Ward, left off the AFC squad for the first time in five years. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, ignored again despite having a 20-3 record as an NFL starter over two seasons.

Guard Alan Faneca, center Jeff Hartings, linebacker Joey Porter and safety Troy Polamalu were chosen again after also being selected last season, when the Steelers sent nine players to Honolulu.

But, on Wednesday, coach Bill Cowher seemed more unhappy than usual about the snubs. His reaction: Sure, the Steelers' passing game isn't designed to produce big numbers like the offenses of other teams, but come on.

His beef...

"You can judge quarterbacks all you want, but if you look at the won-lost percentage, our quarterback can match up with anybody," Cowher said. "Hines Ward, I think you know what he is. I think a lot of people are looking at numbers when they vote."

Of course, it's hard to argue against who is going at quarterback for the AFC: Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Carson Palmer. Only Manning and Palmer have passer ratings higher than Roethlisberger's 102.0.

Maybe that's why Roethlisberger didn't seemed bothered by not being chosen after missing four of the Steelers' 14 games with sore knees.

"Oh, no, I don't deserve it," Roethlisberger said. "I know when I deserve to be there and I don't feel like I deserve it yet. In this offense, you don't put up big numbers, so ..."

and ben is right, he didn't deserve to go, the only ones that really deserved to go was troy and hines. pisses me off chambers has one great game and he's all of a sudden the greatest to ever touch a football. hines should go piss on every little kid that based their votes on numbers. i guess hines will have the last word when he's holding up his superbowl mvp trophy

Pro Bowl Notes:

During Bill Cowher's 14 seasons, 28 different players have been selected to the Pro Bowl ? 24 were first-time selections ? combining for 65 Pro Bowl trips...This is the 11th time during Cowher?s tenure that a linebacker has been selected to the Pro Bowl. Since 1970, at least one Steelers linebacker has been selected to the team in 30 different seasons?This is the 10th time in Cowher?s 14 seasons that at least four players were placed on the Pro Bowl team.

I'm very disappointed to hear Hines isn't going as well. I think he deserves it much more than some of the people going...
glad to see Troy and Faneca going. would've liked to see Farrior, but I guess he wasn't quite up to his usual this year. I also agree that I don't think Ben's ready for the ProBowl yet, esp with who he's up against...I'd say give him another year or two and we'll see him there :)
