    Bush has been great all year on special teams. Corey Graham was not better than him.

    I think two more packers should have been added. Bush and Peprah as the SS

    Snubs: Nelson & Crosby

    Don't think B.J. Raji should be there.

    Agreed on Nelson. I know it was a longshot but the strides that Desmond Bishop has been making I think he should have gotten some love too.

    Tramon shouldn't be an alternate. Really disappointing year for him.

    Nelson is the only one I think is really deserving that was not on the roster

    I'm pretty disappointed with the Pro Bowl as a whole.


    Phillip Rivers made it after leading the league in interceptions most of the season, and leading all quarterbacks as far as turnovers go.


    Eli Manning made it over Matthew Stafford. Now I know a lot of people don't like the Lions, as i don't either, but you can't say Stafford didn't deserve the pro bowl over Eli. 10-5 his teams in the playoffs, and Stafford has done much more than Eli.

    No Cam Newton? That kid has proved every doubter wrong in the world. He's had the best first season for a rookie quarterback.

    Oh what the hell, I guess CJ2K should have made it too since Rivers made it and guys that deserved a shot have been snubbed. And this is why the pro bowl should never be voted by fans. I'm surprised Tebow didn't make it since Rivers got in.

    Fans only get 1/3 the vote and the tiebreaker. Players and coaches get the other 2/3 and it is probably a popularity contest there as well. I kind of wish the media would also get a vote, 1 per team. That would further the dilute the fans ignorance.

    Matthew Stafford is one of the biggest pro bowl snubs ever over Eli, and I am still trying to figure out how Phillip Rivers made it. he's having his worst season and he still makes the pro bowl. I guess anything is possible in the NFL.

    Every year there are about 5 players on either team chosen over someone much more worthy. Last year Tramon and A-rod weren't on the team when it was first announced IIRC.

    What i am pissed about it, that i won't see any of the players in the game if the Packers make to the Superbowl. This is f*cking stupid this way. If i voted of a certain player, i'd like to see them in the game. If MLB and NBA let their stars play in the All star games during the season. Then the NFL can let the selected starters who will play in the SB be in the PB.

    I wouldn't doubt that Matt will be a alternate if Pack go back to the SB. I think Nelson should have been selected. I don't think CM3 should have been selected. He had some good plays and plus he had been double and triple teamed all year, but definitely not PB selection worthy. WHy does our kickers and punters get snobbed in PB voting? Crosby should be a starter.

    Don't agree with Raji. Others are fine. Nelson instead of Raji.

    Should have been Stafford over Manning.

    Im surpirse none of you think Bishop deserved a ticket to Hawaii
    Bishop: 109 tackles, 5.0 sacks, 1 FF
    Urlacher:92 tackles, 3 Int
    I guess Urlacher is selected because is Urlacher.

    Crosby and Masthay. Although I have to admit, I really couldn't tell you much about the punter and kicker who did get in.

    Urlacher can be retired and out of the league and still get voted in.

    Raji made it at DL, not WR.
    If Jordy, it's instead of Jennings.
    Agree for sure Stafford over Elijah.
    NO Texans OL made it even though they run block better than anyone.

    Well how in the hell did Phillip Rivers get in leading the league in interceptions and turnovers of all quarterbacks? And you know the only reason Eli Manning made it is because his name, he's a Manning so he's special.

    Oh God this. What a snub!!! Poor Texans.

    Then again it's the pro bowl. Not worth getting too worked up over. Vince Young made it once didn't he? That alone tells you all......

    Who do you think deserve it more than Rivers in the AFC? Flacco, Hasselbeck, Fitzpatrick... ?
    You are right about Manning, Stafford should have been the 3rd QB

    And it looks like the Packers will play the Ravens then.
