    NFL.com news: 2011 Pro Bowl rosters

    Good to see Charles and Bowe from KC get in. They deserved it.

    Peyton Manning got in on name recognition alone.

    Only one Minnesota player.

    And the only one who was good this year: AP.

    but considering that it's taken him far more pass attempts to achieve those similar stats, it's clear he's having somewhat of a down year. He's on pace to have about 100 more pass attempts than he has in any previous year in his career.

    IMO, guys like Flacco and Cassel are having better seasons.

    Exactly who should have been in there over Peyton?

    Matt Cassell? No
    David Garrard? No
    Vince Young? Hell no
    Colt McCoy/Seneca/Delhomme? No
    Matt Schaub? No (but close)
    Joe Flacco? No
    Kyle Orton? No
    Mark Sanchez? No
    Ben Roethlisberger? Missed 4 games, so of course he wasn't going to make it.
    Jason Cambell? No
    Chad Henne? Shouldn't even be in the league.
    Carson Palmer? No
    Ryan Fitzpatrick? No

    The only 2 you could make a case for are Schaub and Roethlisberger. Schaub really hasn't done better than Peyton, and Big Ben was suspended. Manning had a bad 3 week stretch. Other than that he has been the same old Peyton. However, I do agree with fan voting. A couple years ago the Cowboys had 12 pro bowlers and that is only because they are ''Americas'' team. Vince Young for god sake was in the pro bowl last season. Pro Bowl should be about the best players at the positions for the season.

    And both of those teams have better(healthy) wide receivers. and they have run games.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    James Harrison made it as a starter (and deserved it)...wonder how Roger Goodell feels about that?

    What makes you say this --- his numbers are almost the same as last year's??? Or are you carrying some type of bias?

    Oops - XBOX has it covered -- Peyton has a bunch of folks just wishing him to fall off and hunting for reasons.
