Why do people care?

Its an award for playing a good season, its not like anyone who had a really shitty season is going there. Fletcher is one of the best linebackers and Hall had that really good 4 interception game which gave him some attention.

I'll be at the pro bowl :D

it's really nothing other than a reason to go to watch some football and drink, and see some of your favorite players. it's nowhere near the same intensity as a real NFL game. Actually doesn't have the same intensity as a UH Warriors game. But it's still all fun.

The fact that ANY Washington Redskins made the Pro Bowl list proves that it is a joke. Did any of you hear Chad Dukes rant about them after they got their asses handed to them by Michael Vick? That pretty much sums up the Redskins as a whole. As for individual players... their efforts weren't enough to help them win, so how good were they, really? It's ridiculous.

But like several of you already said, who cares?

Doesn't New England have the most defensive players in the Pro Bowl? Weren't they ranked something like 28th overall (too lazy to check it myself.) It's a popularity contest, pure and simple.

What does Washington Redskins have to do with Woodley not being mentioned as pro bowl alternate? It is easy to make the pro bowl in the NFC with so many terrible teams. Last time I checked Woodley is in the AFC where there are many, many great defensive players. It is not really a snub because I don't think he had nearly as great a season as Timmons did. Timmons should have been on the original pro bowl list but that creep Ray Lewis makes it on merits from past accomplishments alone. He is certainly no longer a pro bowl ILB.

But... but... he's RAAAAAAAAAY LEWIS! Animals want to learn how to talk so that they can hang out with him! And he rides around on a giant raven that has rocket boosters up its ass!

If Tom Brady is half gay, the other half is at LEAST bicurious.
They do own us. We are fortunate not to have played them. Oh well!

We will hear from Patriots fans yet again that we would have not made the Super Bowl if we played them. Funny thing is they have choked away their chance to play us several times since we have won two Super Bowls since their last one. They are delusional up there.
