    I think it will be a travesty if Vick or Favre get picked, but other than Brees and Romo, there are no decent QBs in the NFC.

    Send Grossman so the AFC defensive backs can show off their return skills.

    Should anyone who was suspended for drug use this season really be selected to the Pro Bowl?

    I realize it's not a major punishment to the player, but doesn't it send the wrong message?

    Is there any sport that actually has that as a rule? I don't think there is.

    statistically, it's been a tough year to be a wr.

    Probably not.

    I realize Shawn Merriman is a freakish talent, but he was busted for drugs (steroids related, right?). If he were a baseball player, he'd be a pariah. In football, he's a Pro Bowler.

    BTW, that should be Tarik Glenn, not Green for AFC tackles.

    Hey, maybe my last-minute Willie Parker campaign worked after all!

    Not sure why Troy Polamalu was there. Between the games he has missed recently and the fact that he was invisible the first month of the season due mostly to a bad shoulder, he definitely got there on reputation alone.

    Nice to see Philip Rivers make the Pro Bowl in his first season as a starter. Mostly nice because it gives me more ammunition to torture Giants fans with. Weren't Merriman and Keading also taken with draft picks from that trade? OUCH.

    I haven't seen a single one of his games, but has Larry Allen been that good, or is this all name?

    Rivers over Brady... wow

    Given the lack of quality NFC quarterbacks, Bulger isn't a bad third selection. I agree with whomever -- Columbo? -- voted for Lee Evans over Peyton's pair. Dude made Losman look average at times.

    Will Shields -- a 12-time Pro Bowler?! Am I not paying attention, or this is guy ridiculously overrated?
