Screw the Pro Bowl.  It's about as meaningful as an 8th-grade beauty contest, and judged about as accurately.

We win because we are team, and we put team above any of this other crap.

Plus, all this will do is put us in a piss-poor mood for Sunday.

I think Ike Taylor goes this year...At least, I think that he should.  He has really stepped it up this season.

Unfortunately, shutting down the league's best week after week does not matter.

What a joke.

WHAT?!?! Berger got shafted and wasn't selected to the Pro Bowl! Astonishing!

Congrats to Harrison, Polamalu, and Farrior.

An aside...Phillip Rivers and Chad Pennington out, Brett Favre in? That is a joke. Both easily have higher QB ratings, and together have as many INTs as Favre.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.

I think Woodley tailed off a little the last month or so, plus no name recognition, plus excuse likely that he gets his numbers because the D is focusing on Harrison.

But, one could also argue that Harrison is having a monster year because offenses have to contend with Woodley now, instead of "Hung Up" Haggans.

I shouldn't say that, I actually liked Clark.  But Woodley is a definite upgrade.

I agree, Woodley earned his plays; just suggesting what someone who doesn't watch every week might think as an excuse to keep him out.  More likely that he hasn't been lighting it up as much lately - gotta have a monster game just about every week in order to break into that club for the first time.

Ike does play against the big names pretty well, but I think he gtes recognition for dropping about 20 picks this year.

Or possibly the assist to the Colts...?

No doubt, it's frustrating.  Eitherway, I'll take a guy who shuts down the best week in and week out and struggles with INT's.

Im willing to wager that Rivers is probably not well liked amongst his peers.  I know this may come as a shock to some, but Rivers comes across as a douchebag sometimes.

If Woodley's production drop was a reason for the snub...well Favre's 6 td game happened in week 4 and since then he's played very very average football.
