    Marques Colston should have made it for sure.

    Colston is the only one that really, really got snubbed. There were a few others who could have gone (Brees, Jahri Evans, McKenzie) but their competition was right there equal to or better than they were. Colston getting left out, though, is a real travesty.

    Fred Taylor got looked over for about the 10th year in a row and he's still never made the Pro-Bowl (though his omission is likely more a byproduct of his conference, as evidenced by the inclusion of Marion Barber in the NFC). Neither did any of his teammates on the rest of the 10-4 Jacksonville squad.

    I, for the life of me, can't understand why they can't wait until the season ends to finalize voting for this thing. It's not like everybody has to mail in the votes nowadays, and the damn thing isn't until friggin' February. If you're going to hold the event after the conclusion of the season, then why not use that whole season as the body of work which does or does not constitute a given player's worthiness? Why cut the voting short before the most meaningful month of the season even starts?

    His own teammate, Greg Jennings, was arguably more worthy of an appearance than Driver. Jennings has been the weapon that has added that explosive dimension back into the Green Bay offense. I mean, with 12 TDs, the guy's made a lot of huge plays this season.

    I think Jennings missed two games this year also...12 TDs in 12 games, not too shabby.

    There's an article in the Times-Picayune that says this is the first time since 1980 that the Saints have been shut out in the Pro Bowl. That's amazing! I never would've guessed that they had a streak that long.

    Yeah I noticed that as well. With all the abysmal years that have come and gone between now and then, it's kind of funny that now that N.O. has one of the better collective groups of talent in recent memory they get shut out, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

    It's all good, though. If Brees and Colston end the year the way they've been playing for the last month or so, I wouldn't be surprised to see both of them name to the All-Pro team, which is more objectively decided upon anyway and a better measure of who is deserving. And Colston will get his recognition sooner or later. He's not a flashy guy, but I think he's going to end up kind of like Jimmy Smith used to be. Put up the numbers enough and eventually people will have no choice but take notice.

    True. With a healthy serving of Morten Andersen mixed in for good measure.

    Driver or Holt over Colston is an injustice.

    It is about as bad as Polamalu making it, seriously, the guy missed 4 games. He is making it off of namesake alone. Of course, the Pro Bowl is none for this.

    How in the hell do you keep Colston from going.......

    That is the biggest crock ever. Not to mention Fred Taylor didn't make it in the AFC over Willie Parker????????? When are the Steelers going to get judged on their record and not how good they "should" be.

    They should just name the teams and then not play the game. It sucks anyway. Has anyone ever even watched this game????? I know I haven't and never will.

    Re: New Orleans Got Jammed!!

    Willie Parker ~ 1,317 yds (league high) 2 TD's
    Fred Taylor ~ 1,091 yds, 4TD's

    I'd say that neither of them really DESERVE the Pro Bowl bid... but that's what you get when you have a popular fan vote.

    Willis McGahee ~ 1,197 yds, 7 TD's
    Jamal Lewis ~ 1,084 yds, 9 TD's



    Colston is about the same (statically) with Fitzgerald... and he's a starter. I'd like to see Jennings or Colston over Driver. Holt actually had a quiet decent year.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
