I don't agree with the Trotter choice, I think it should have been Nick Barnett as the MLB. Also I would rather have a healthy Dan Morgan over Trotter any day.

I heard Tiki Barber made it for the first time.
Quick side question...If you are asked to go to the Pro-Bowl as an alternate, does that make you a pro-bowler?In 2002, one of the NFC running backs declined to go to the pro-bowl because of surgery. At which point, the league asked Tiki Barber as the first alternate. However Tiki had scheduled surgery as well and he declined. At which point, Michael Bennett was asked to go as the second alternative and he accepted.

How does Larry Allen make it every year? He's nowhere near as good as he used to be. Is this like the baseball All-Star where once you make it, they keep voting you in until you miss the entire season?

Didn't you see the part where I listed Ray Lewis above?

RB Tiki Barber has been named to the 2005 NFC Pro Bowl squad. Several other Giants players were named as alternates, including TE Jeremy Shockey, LB Carlos Emmons and WR/Special Teamer David Tyree. Stay logged on to Giants.com for more on this breaking story.

Yeah you're still technically a Pro Bowler, but there is a distinction usually made between players who are voted in and those chosen as alternates -- especially since so many players don't even go to the Pro Bowl so it tends to water down the process a bit. That's how Dave Krieg got in so many times. :D

In trolling the New England web site I found this headline!

Dolphins give Patriots a shocker in Miami

They gave New England a shocker? Guess that loss was even more humiliating than it looked!

Dissappointed that Rossum and Coleman didn't make it. Coleman really anchored the Falcons' D-line this season.

Edited: Spelling

EDIT: Here's a link: http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/f...UZUcUbUcTYWVVZV

The Falcons had four players named to the NFC Pro Bowl team Wednesday. There was one noticeable name left out.

Quarterback Michael Vick, tight end Alge Crumpler, linebacker Keith Brooking and defensive end Patrick Kerney were named to the team that will play in Hawaii on Feb. 13 - a week after the Super Bowl.

Absent from the list was defensive lineman Rod Coleman, a major reason the Falcons' defense has improved over the much the same unit that was last in the NFL last year. Coleman has 8 1/2 sacks this season. The Falcons defense had compiled 40 sacks, but only one during the three games Coleman missed this season with a knee injury.

Michael Vick
Wow. That's a complete joke. No way should Vick be considered a Pro Bowl QB this year.
I agree. Granted, outside of C-Pep and McNabb, there aren't too many great NFC options, but I would pick Favre over him. Totally a popularity-type pick here.

Joke how so? If winning is everything in the NFL at 11-3 Vick has the 2nd best recored in NFC!I too think Vick is not the best qb in the world but whom are you going to give 3rd QB Slot too?

Anyone else find it somewhat misguided to announce pro bowlers while there's still two games left to play?

Well, baseball does it with half the season to go, so this isn't too bad.

No! With 2 games left some teams have nothing to play for and this could change the performances of some players. Say Pat's would wrap up Home field by now they might sit Brady. Should that count as bad mark for Brady?

Favre would be more a popularity pick than Vick...
Agreed. I don't think Favre is one of the 3 best Qbs in the NFC. While Vick doesn't excite me, its hard to argue with success.COlin
