BleacherReport (I know lol) has us having only 3 Pro Bowlers

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Marshawn
    Sherman
    Chancellor

    With a bunch of alternates: Okung, Unger, Clemons, Wagner, ET.

    I know its BR which is a pretty bad site but this is the first Pro Bowl Predicition I've come across. Thoughts? Having only two Pro Bowlers on the leagues 3rd best Defense seems kind of low.

  • Sherman won't make it, due to his suspension. Yeah, he technically has a chance of having it overturned, but its virtually nil.

  • news flash: the seahawks are not popular outside of the northwest. There will probably be several deserving guys that dont get the recognition.

  • to be completely fair, the bleacher does nothing different then the writers of espn or nfl. They make bogus predictions or "Expert" picks. They have statistically the same averages across the board as every sports site. They're just writers and pundits making educated claims and hoping they're right.

    Also, Sherman is still elgible until after his appeal. So right now, chances are that he'll get voted in before hes taken off. He'll still get the honor of knowing he was voted in.

    And lastly, his predictions really arent that far off. There is 16 teams with studs at some positions. Could make a case for ET being more then an alternate, but this season hasnt been his best. Hes still doing his job fairly well and one of the better safeties out there still. My gut tells me that he'll still get voted in from notiriety. Leroy and KJ wont. Reds had a mediocre year. Mebane is a possibility, but theres a lot of good tackles in the league and not everyone gets to go. Tons of probowl pass rushers out there, so clemons being on the alternate seems fitting for now. Russel wont when you stack up the NFC QB's. It would be cool, and hes overcome a lot and proven a lot of people wrong, but there is to many elites in the NFC, and Griffen is already gonna take a spot as we know.
    Too many Star Wide Recievers out there, so you know that ours arent going, and thats fine. Next year if rice keep his productions up, I can see him going again. Our TE's have done their job, but theyre not a graham or a gonzalas.

    Sounds about right, who do you think they got it wrong on?

    - Wagner's having a great year, but he's not better than Bowman, Briggs or Willis (yet).
    - Love me some Thomas, but he only has two picks this year.
    - Browner? Sorry, but suspension put a damper on getting another selection.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

    I guess really only ET. I dont care about his stats. His impact as an elite player doesn't show up in the statistics by the nature of his great play and ability. And Im sure players and coaches see this during both the game and film study. Theres a reason guys like Revis and Bailey have like 2 INTs a year. They're given no chances by opposing QBs.

    Bleacher writers' lack of football knowledge makes the average ESPN/NFL writer look like Greg Cosell.

    As far as Pro Bowlers, I honestly don't see any Seahawks starting in the Pro Bowl at all. We're a young team stacked up against a very strong year for the entire NFC; every strong Seahawk has heavy, long-recognized competition at their position.

    I don't know how fan votes will factor in. The Packers are strongly represented in the Pro Bowl voting, which won't help, but so are its division rivals.

    We'll have plenty of alternates, though. Lynch, M-Rob, Unger, Clemons, Mebane, Wagner, ET, and Ryan should all be in the mix for that. Ryan and Okung might actually have a shot at starting; Okung hasn't allowed a sack this year.
    GO HAWKS!!!

  • I'm not too surprised. The NFC probowl team will contain the 49ers and Bears, both of whom are much more national and known as opposed to our Seahawks.

    :sarcasm_on: Either way i hope we see defense in the probowl this year. :sarcasm_off:

  • There are some pretty damn good players on teams other than the Seahawks. That might explain it.

  • Could care less about individual awards. Those awards tend to cost the Hawks as a team. A snubbed player seems hungrier/angier and cost less at contract time.
