This Pro Bowl roster is such a smack in the face to the Seahawks defense. Sherman was definitely snubbed. Jennings and Tillman have been out for 3 - 4 games a piece. The Bears could be eliminated from the playoffs if the Vikes beat GB in Minn, the Bears lose in Detroit and the Giants or Cowboys win, which could very well happen. Also... Patrick Peterson was a better special teamer than he was a corner this year. While he made big plays, he got picked on successfully a lot this year. Sherman has been a game-changer all year long on defense and he's a major reason why the Hawks are in the playoffs. Where are the Cards??? Oh yeah... They're losing in San Fran for a better draft pick.
Then... Gerald McCoy over Brandon Mebane???? Really??? McCoy came out like a gangbuster early in the season, but he fell off the gridiron the latter half of the season... I know because he was a DL on my fantasy roster and he was a free agent DL for most of the season after I dropped him because he didn't produce. Mebane has been a monster all year long. On top of that... Mebane is an anchor on a top 5 defense in the NFL. What's the Bucs defense ranked? Brandon Mebane was snubbed.
Also... If Goodell and the owners of the NFL had any sense what-so-ever, they'd move the Pro Bowl to the start of next year and make it the first preseason game of the year. The new "Hall of Fame" game that kicks off the new football season. The players might even actually show up to play because the players will be looking to get back in the swing of things. The first preseason game of the year is the best time to have the Pro Bowl game in my opinion.
