I figured Morris might get the shaft. He should have made it; 3rd in the NFC in rushing and they take there backs from each conference.

Gore made it solely on name over Morris. Alf had a much better year! Alf was definitely snubbed!

Written had a better year than Graham! He set an NFL record for Pete's sake!

Too many of Dez' yards came last week. If he had had that performance two weeks ago he might have gone over Cruz.

Congratulations to all the players who made it


but ... let's get real

how much credibility does this really have when Tom Brady in his prime was not selected

get back to me with a rational explanation for that .. if you can :roll:

how can a player that has played as well as London Fletcher has for his entire career and only gets a few selections to the Pro Bowl

I'll be waiting ... :twisted:
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

Hail to the Redskins

Curiously absent from Pro-Bowl nominations...

Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Doug Martin
Aren't these guys up for Rookie of the year or something?

Rogers and Ryan are obvious locks in the NFC. After that, someone had to sit home. I'm glad it wasn't RGIII this time, though I'm worried that Wilson will steal his ROTY award on the strength of the last month (as opposed to the whole season, where RGIII has clearly been superior).

Hard to see the argument for Doug Martin making it over Morris, who was also left out.

Andrew Luck is riding his reputation a bit, IMO. He hasn't been as sharp in the last couple of months as he was early in the year. He has his 4th quarter comebacks but what people forget is that it's Luck who is usually digging the hole he later climbs out of.

Andrew Luck

I don't think that's curious at all. The guy has ok numbers for a rookie, but he's not tops in the AFC. Manning, Brady, and Schaub deserve it more. My 2 cents

Against inferior competition to boot.

That's great news. Can't deny there is a lot of hype around RGIII this year, but I don't think anyone can argue that he's not deserving of the selection.

So are you saying that after half a season the league might have figured out his "gimmicky college offense" and that maybe he "can't read defenses" :wink: :lol:
