I have a hard time arguing with Al Wilson and Zach Thomas - both are clearly top players (as is DeMeco) but those two have been doing it longer. At least he didn't get snubbed for a overhyped player like June or Ray Lewis.

Atleast you have someone. We don't anyone....for the 2nd year in a row.

I love watching my team get completely snubbed. It's so fun.

what about the coaches and players' vote?? has that already been accounted for?

Guarantee you, someone picked on the defensive side will wind up pulling out due to injury, and when that happens, DeMaco has got to be at the top of the list of people to replace them.

Al Wilson?? Are you freaking kidding me? DeMeco won't get respect until after this season is over and his name is out in the open more. I am confident that he got a lot of the players and coaches votes. He is amazing and he deserved to be there with Zach Thomas.

I am very frustrated. If he gets robbed of the DROY too, I will seriously blow up.

how bout the nfc?

well, with 5/6 the afc teams going at least .500 this year, some afc players WOULD take the place of some of the nfc roster haha

Adam Shefter snubs:

LB: DeMeco Ryans, Texans -- This rookie leads the league in tackles, shouldn't that be enough?

To get to the Pro Bowl--that's his point--Ryans not going was a snub by the selection folks.

Congrats to AJ for making it he's done well this year, and DeMeco only leads the NFL in tackles he shouldn't get in...

Some of the picks are just dumb ( Lynch )???

Keith Bullock is a perennial snub. So who do you think deserved to go this year? PacMan?

Sarg01

I'd argue that leading the league in tackles isn't enough. However, that's not all DeMeco's got on his resume. He's all over the field and seemingly in on every play. Statwise, he's got more than a couple sacks (despite not playing in a rush-linebacker spot) and some turnovers to boot.

I found it ironic that Shefter's next "snub" was Ray Lewis, who would have been competing for the same spot as DeMeco and he says Lewis should go to every Pro Bowl. Guess what, Adam? That kind of thinking is exactly why snubs happen. All else being close, players end up going on reputation. However, this year, Lewis' production wasn't even close.

Congrats to Andre Johnson. He's having a great season statistically but I want to see him make a bigger impact. Make the big catches and plays that helps the team win. Obviously you need a qb who will get you the ball and get it to you in good position. Anyway, good to know AJ's going to Hawaii and I heard DeMeco was the 3rd alternate...So you never know.

I don't know how you can be better than DeMeco. He's all pro in my book. But it hurts your chances when you're on a bad team.

12-19-2006, 06:55 PM
Its a hard pill to swallow because DeMeco really deserved it...Iam happy for Andre, but MeCo deserved it even more in my book...I can't look past all those dropped passes from Andre.

Isn't Hampton down with an injury already??

The Raiders defense is pretty decent. I think some might be surprised at the Raiders next year if they have a good QB and possibly a new line coach. Of course those are 2 big ifs.

I am surprised and feel fortunate that individual players on the Texans team are getting this kind of accolade. As said earlier, Titans didn't get anyone in. Browns didn't either. With a 4-win record, I'm impressed AJ got in. Congrats to him.

I don't think Demeco is being snubbed (don't burn me at the stake for that). I know of at least one SI writer who has blasted Demeco for taking fakes. He is young, and he will likely be DROY, and he will have many years as a pro-bowler -- just not this one.

Personally, I'm tired of the Texans having a player who can tear up the field in his one specialization. I'd rather have more wins.

Also, I want to know who else on the team was real Pro-Bowl material? Pitts? Dayne? Mario?

Who so dominates his spot that you would consider him better than anyone else in the AFC? Don't misunderstand me. I think the Texans have a lot of good players. But outstanding, better-than-the-rest-of-the-league caliber performances? I wouldn't bet on it...

The Raiders have the #1 passing defense in the league. I think they were #3 before we played them.

Congrats to Andre and also to DeMeco for being named a reserve. They don't take many MLB and the position is loaded with studs. He wasn't robbed but he is the best linebacker to play in Houston since Dr Doom (http://youtube.com/watch?v=pAKYp1B35UI). They were different kinds of players but I think DeMeco is going to be a great one in his own right.

It kind of makes you wonder if he would have got in if he didn't spit in womens faces or have so many run ins with the law. He's a dang good player, but like someone already stated, he's punk.:)
