    Although I have not watched the (Whole) Pro Bowl in the last 10 years at least. I am always pumped when a player from my team is honored with a selection.

    I think the Packers have three solid contenders this year to take the Pro Bowl Starter Honor.

    1. Aaron Kampman

    2. A.J. Hawk

    3. Jon Ryan (This might be a surprise to some of you. But he is going to have a monster year from a punters standpoint.)

    Opine away......

    1. Donald Driver - This guy just continues to produce for us. I think he's the best Packer receiver since Sterling Sharpe.

    2. A.J. Hawk - I think he'll be our best defensive player this year. This could be the year he has a huge impact on our defense. I have no doubt in my mind that when #4 hangs them up, Hawk will be the face of the franchise.

    3. Aaron Kampman - I don't think he'll dominate like he did last year. I think he'll actually start a little slow because teams will focus on him but I do believe he'll have a 10+ sack year and I think he'll get it in as either a backup or alternate.

    4. Charles Woodson/Al Harris - I think only one will make it. Both deserve it. Woodson would be my guess because he'll probably get more INT's. Both are great Corners and it'd be a shame to see both left out.

    Once we start winning more games, the exposure is bound to get more of our guys in the Pro Bowl.

    Driver
    Kampman
    Woodson

    should all make it.

    These are the four I would have said. I even would say Harris OR Woodson.

    I knew that I was going to get some grief on leaving him out, but I do not see him as a starter. He may get robbed when the selections come. He will make the Pro Bowl but not as a starter.... He will be a reserve.

    My reasoning is this.... Matt Leinart is going to have a hell of a year as a second year player and the WR that is going to reap the benefits of that is going to be Anquan Boldin. Driver was a starter last year but this year I see it as Steve Smith and Boldin.

    Remember... This is post is about starters in the Pro Bowl.

    There is football beyond Packer Football. It is called the N.F.L. (As a whole.)

    Whoops. I guess I should have read your original post more clearly. We may have 0 starters, seeing how we tend to get robbed in the Pro Bowl. All four who make it will probably be reserves.

    Well I think this is the year for Tauscher to break in at starter in the pro-bowl.

    Other canidates..

    The normal Kampman, Woodson, Harris and Driver.

    Maybe as an alternate in Barnett, but the public opinion of #54 in Chi Town is tough to beat out.

    After that it would really have to be a suprise.

    Favre is a chance because it's the NFC. I mean they were talking about Romo last season, that's how thin NFC is on QB's.

    -Kampman

    Could a lot of teams focus on Driver since he was a pro bowler last year, which would allow Jennings to blow the doors off the competition. (You never know?)
