Default Harrison, Hampton tabbed for NFL's Pro Bowl

Harrison, Hampton tabbed for NFL's Pro Bowl
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...nt_659914.html
By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Outside linebacker James Harrison and nose tackle Casey Hampton were named to the Pro Bowl today.

Harrison made the AFC team as a starter while Hampton was selected as a reserve.

The Steelers did not place an offensive player on the team even though they have a 4,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers for the first time in franchise history.

Harrison, who is second on the Steelers with 10 1/2 sacks, has made the Pro Bowl for three consecutive seasons. Hampton has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times.

The annual all-star game between the AFC and NFC will be played on Jan. 31

AFC North Pro Bowl analysis
By James Walker
ESPN.com
http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/print?id=7644

Perfect sense: Cleveland Browns kick returner Joshua Cribbs was a no-brainer. Cribbs is the NFL's most dangerous and best all-around special teams' player. He has four returns (three kickoffs, one punt) for touchdowns this season. Baltimore Ravens tailback Ray Rice also made sense. I wondered if enough people recognized the special season Rice is having rushing the ball and catching out of the backfield. He didn't win the fan vote but gained enough respect from players and coaches to make his first Pro Bowl. I also liked the recognition of Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who is coming into his own and will be a dominant force for years to come.

2009 Pro Bowlers: AFC North
Baltimore Ravens
LB Ray Lewis*
FB Le'Ron McClain*
DT Haloti Ngata*
S Ed Reed*
RB Ray Rice
Cleveland Browns
KR Joshua Cribbs
OT Joe Thomas
Pittsburgh Steelers
LB James Harrison*
DT Casey Hampton

*denotes starter
Made it on rep: Baltimore's Ed Reed is arguably the top safety in football, but this season was not his best. He's been banged up and Baltimore's pass defense was shaky all year. With just three interceptions, Reed's having one of his least productive seasons. But a decent, albeit not spectacular, year from Reed still is better than 80 percent of NFL safeties. Some may want to add Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis and/or Steelers defensive tackle Casey Hampton to this group, mainly because of their age. But I thought both players had productive seasons.

Got robbed: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger surpassed 4,000 yards for the first time in his NFL career. But it was not enough to get a Pro Bowl nod. San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers took the final quarterback spot in the AFC behind Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and Rivers also is deserving. Not having one player from the AFC North champion Cincinnati Bengals looks odd. Tailback Cedric Benson was the top player for the Bengals who got the biggest snub.

As long as the fans have input in this kind of stuff, he'll continue to get robbed.

the Lolbowl. Pshh guys it has never mattered. It's nice to see Hampton and Harrison get recognition though. I feel like one of those bengal CB's got snubbed bad though, they both played better than Champ Bailey this season, particularly Leon Hall. Would've been cool to see Kemo in there too!

Saddest voting results I have saw in many years wow, no surprise Ben didn't make it with the 4,000 yards and less than stellar numbers he will never get the recognition he deserves. Umm Holmes or Ward? okkkk and mostly Wood come on he has been a beast all season. Miller def. could have made it to at LEAST a back up roll, but once again not noticed one bit. Just sad!

I can't believe some of you guys actually think Ben got snubbed. What's worse is bringing up stats like 4,000 passing yards is apparently meant to convince somebody he's worthy? Come now, didn't Jon Kitna have 4,000 passing yards with the lions too?

Ben has been good this year but not as good as the three in the probowl. Manning, Rivers, and Brady have all been better.

Ben's had a few chances to win games on the last posession this year and failed (cincy, KC, and cleveland come to mind immediately). I think Rivers has been pulling the biggest clutch drives in the year thus far. Brady has quietly (kind of) been playing pretty good ball, just not as great as the 07 season, and Manning has proven once again that he is the best regular season QB of all time.

Congrats to both James and Casey, though I still think the Pro Bowl is a huge joke.
