Outside of the coolest coach in football. The Steelers have a lot of douchbags on that team. Ben, Haley, Harrison, Mendenhall... Etc etc.

NBC will probably hire Harrison when he retires they seem to like headhunting crap bags on that set

I know I'm biased, but Demaryius Thomas should have gotten a Pro Bowl nod over Wes Welker. He got more yards and more TDs despite Decker also getting almost just as many opportunities.

Anecdotal evidence that NFL Pro-Bowl selections mean shit: Vince Young and Matt Cassel were Pro-Bowl selections in back-to-back years.

Demaryius and Dez Bryant definitely got snubbed, but one of the most egregious ones I see is Richard Sherman. He's been an absolutely dominant player for one of the best teams in the league.

The selections are better than the players that actually go to Hawaii. There are always so many players who just don't want to go that they can easily work down to the 4th and 5th alternates thanks to moving the game before the Super Bowl.

The funny thing is that the only way that Thomas doesn't go to Hawaii (unless he doesn't want to go) is if the Broncos or Ravens make it to the Super Bowl. The other four AFC playoff teams all have a WR named to the game.

And Chiefs fans were whining that Justin Houston should have gotten in over Dumervil....

I'm fine with Hali, Charles, and Colquitt, but Berry and Johnson were jokes to get in.

Well, I think that the looming suspension (that he successfully got discarded just now) probably scared some voters away.

Ronde Barber is an alternate. Fans voting is always stupid.

That any chiefs made it is silly.

The voting is always horrible, perhaps more so this year.

Barber captained the worst passing defense in football.

The 49ers were way too blessed with selections too. Lavonte David or Luke Kuechlyshould be on the team. Bowman no. Also both Falcons safeties have had better years than whitner and his counterpart.

Alas fans are idiots and the pro bowl is the worst

There's really only one 49er who should no doubt make that team and its Justin Smith.

That defense is a joke without Smith

The Chiefs aren't as bad as their record indicates. Their defense is solid and they're running game is very good. Which really goes to show (a) how important the QB and passing game are in today's game (b) just how bad their QB situation is and (c) how poorly coached they are.

I agree with gh that Berry wasn't totally deserving, but the 4 others are solid players (he also felt Johnson was not, I disagree).

I'm not a big fan of the Pro Browl....so let me change the subject:

To those of you on this board who made Super Bowl predictions before the season started, how are you feeling about your prediction?

I predicted the Packers over the Patriots.

I'm feeling pretty good about the Patriots IF they do not have to play at Denver in the playoffs. If they do, I think they have perhaps a 1 in 4 chance of winning that game.

I'm also feeling pretty good about the Packers. The only team in the NFC that frightens me is Seattle at HOME. If the Packers can avoid that, then they are in good shape.

If I had to do it all over, I'd go with Denver over Seattle in the Super Bowl...

Thoughts on your pre-season picks?

I had Texans over Packers.

Still very possible, but I think the road to the SB for the Pack will be much "easier" than the Texans. The Texans have gone really cold, just not sure if they could beat NE or Denver right now.

i picked the eagles to win the super bowl. waaaaay off

i think the broncos are gonna win it all. my peyton mancrush aside, they seem the most complete on both sides of the ball. teams like the pats and GB seem to lean on their offense more, while SF and seatle rely on their D (ignore seattle running up scores). denver seems to have the most complete team. also, manning is the best qb ever, so that doesnt hurt.

Heh, I think I picked the Pats over the Packers. I agree that it's still a reasonable result.

I feel the exact same way on a looming DEN/NE playoff game. If it's in Denver, I'm cautiously optimistic, but if it's in NE, I place it on the same 1 in 4 chance you did (but backwards, of course).

The only way a GB/SEA game could be in Seattle is if the Seahawks beat the Rams (likely), the Vikings beat the Packers (possible), and the Cards beat the Niners (highly unlikely). I'm pretty certain that game, if it happens, will be on the frozen tundra.

in the 2nd post of the thread, i chose pack/broncos. i still feel pretty good about that. i didn't pick a winner. i'd love to see peyton win, but it always seems like his magic wears off in the playoffs. the broncos' schedule has been too soft to really know if they're any good. i hope so. i like eli, but i hate the idea that he has more super bowl victories than his brother.

The ideal superbowl would be Packers & Broncos. How great would that be?

He's a Packers fan, so that's why I think he wants to watch it. As a Broncos fan, that would be fine by me as well, of course. Any NFC team would be fine, but I think I'd like the 49ers the most in a chance to exact revenge for 1989.
