Some interesting choices, but nothing to horrible. Sure some players make it on reputation more than performance, but that happens in all all-star games.

Some points:

1. Many of these players will opt out due to injury so many of people's so-called "snubs" will be there anyways.

2. I hear a lot of flak for the Titans not having anyone. It just goes to show you that football is the ultimate team game. You can be a great player on a bad team, or a bad player on a great team. Record does not tranlate to pro-bowl slots.

3. In the Titan's case they had very few stand-out guys, The one who would likely have made it, Kearse, was hurt. One might argue McNair should be there, but can one honestly say McNair was better than Manning or Bledsoe? It's certainly debatable, but I certainly can't say he should have been there because he was not a guaranteed top 3 AFC QB.

Besides Tennesse can still end up 9-7 and out of the playoffs as much as they could be 11-5 and the top seed. With so many good teams in the AFC, its obvious there are tons of quality players.

my only real beef is that Mike Alstott is NOT a fullback....he's in a single-back set more often than not and used as a runner far more than a blocker. There are plenty of pure fullbacks out there that are much more deserving of that spot...Cory Schlessinger of Detroit is one imho - that guy is a brick wall and one of the best pure fullbacks in the league....an unheralded tough guy on a bad team.

No Ray Lewis? I'm shocked.

I know he's been hurt, but for being the star member of a surprisingly competetive team, I really though he'd be a lock for the Pro Bowl. If this is the leage making a statment that they'll take any chance they get to avoid rewarding Ray Lewis then I can't argue with that.

I'm also surprised that Donovan McNabb wasn't named to the NFC team. Farve and Vick are locks and deserve to be in there, but Garcia is just a numbers guy. I think he's a nice player on a good team with the best reciever in the NFC to pad his stats. Garcia has yet to win a game for the 49ers. I know McNabb missed the last few games of the season, but he has outright won so many games for his team that I think he deserves the spot.

Pretty good picks, but I think Bryant Young and Junior Seau made it more on reputation than the strength of their seasons this time around.

ESPN was just showing clips of the guys named to the Pro Bowl and it looked like most of the offensive lineman should have been called for holding.

Two grips for me:

Donovan McNabb instead of Garcia - Garcia has not been too impressive this year. I assume McNabb's injury hurt his votes. I don't know, but I think McNabb played enough this year to be in the Pro Bowl.

Daryl Gardener instead of Bryant Young or La'Roi Glover - Gardener has been an absolute beast on the D-Line for Washington. Gets double teamed often and even triple teamed on occasion. I know he had problems in Miami, but he's been all pro in every game he's played this year.

My only gripe is that Rob Konrad (FB, Miami) didn't make it. Other than that I'm okay. Five members of the Dolphins' D. Nice.

My only real complaint is Faulk. Sure, he's been a great running back every year in the past. Sure, he probably would have had a great year if not for his injuries. The problem is that selection shouldn't be based on last year or could have been. Faulk's performance this year hasn't been pro-bowl stuff and including him means leaving off Tiki Barber who simply had a better year.

As a Titans fan, I would just like to thank all the pro-bowl voters for giving the Titans extra incentive to prove a point by winning the Super Bowl.

Couple of points on the annual NFL beauty pageant...

McNair got screwed. Period. Anyone who says otherwise does not watch Titans football.

Alstott will never be a FB...

And I'd like to address this > "Garcia has yet to win a game for the 49ers." Bull. You obviously did not watch the Oakland game.

Ok...i guess i have more than one complaint (Alstott)..

McNair did indeed get screwed....

Faulk in no way was a pro-bowler this year....

...i did see that at least Cory Schlessinger was named an alternate...at least they recognized one real fullback. Who thinks Alstott is a FB anyway? What a bunch of schite.....

McNair didn't get screwed. There are QB's that got left out that are more deserving than McNair.

I would have liked to have seen Chad Pennington make it. After all, he is the highest rated passer in the AFC. The AFC is pretty stacked at QB though

I'd defintely agree. Alstott is one of the only "fullbacks" in the league that has a name people can recognize that either a) isn't on their favorite team or b) aren't real hardcore fans.

He's also been helped by the fact he gets the ball way more than most fullbacks and has been shown on Sportscenter since his rookie year with Chris Berman doing his Alstott noises.

What he isn't really though is a great blocker, which is what a fullback's main job is.

And do you watch Indi or Buffalo football? McNair has done a lot for his team, but so have Manning and Bledsoe. You may argue that McNair has been better than Bledsoe, but it's not so clear cut to say that McNair got screwed. And there's no way to determine who's better officially. It boils down to opinion. To say McNair got screwed is just irresposible and ignoring the facts.

I agree. Bennett has come on strong in the last half of the season. It looks like he will be the back of the future for the Vikings.

Perhaps they should start doing Pro Bowl decisions after the regular season.

Miami, with 6 Pro Bowl members, faded at the end of the season and didn't even make the playoffs.

Also, shouldn't Chad Pennnington be placed in the Pro Bowl for leading the Jets into the playoffs, when fellow QB Drew Bledsoe faded the last month of the season.

not to mention leading the NFL in pass rating, with an unbelievable 104.2, next highest from a true starter would be gannon at 97.3

Bledsoe was very average the second half of the year. McNair deserves to go over him.
