No doubt. The Pro-Bowl is kinda a joke, for proof see all the time that Larry Aleen made it.

The Cowboys have 11 which is a bit excessive, but since popularity is a factor I can see why some of their players were named in.

Why didn't they just vote the entire Cowboy team in there and be done with it!! Stupid, just plain stupid that the NFL sucks up to that team so much.

Mario will have a hard time winning the popularity contest because the media and fanbase wish the Texans drafted a certain someone else.

Say he ends this year as the AFC sack leader (Could happen). Then comes back next year and appears to just pick up right where he left off. I think the media will give quite a bit of press to that, especially if the other two (Draft '06 other two, not AFC DE's) regress any further next year, than they have this year.

If Mario keeps this up, and consistently too, he will make pro bowl after pro bowl and will fall into Jason Taylor status of making it in even when he's over the hill and old.

My buddy and I were talking about it, but its almost like the media is mad we were right. Last year, they were offended that we didnt think the King was worthy of the #1 pick, so took Mario. He struggles because hes young, under alot of pressure, and hurt(not an excuse, but a fact). Then, this year, he gets it and has shot through the roof,and the media is mad at us for making them look bad.

So is it possible to be an All-Pro without being a Pro Bowler?

Yeah but really the media can only really affect 1/3 of the probowl voting, because I don't think players and coaches get their outlook of other players by what ESPN is spinning.

What will be interesting to see is this years AP All-Pro team.

I learned many years ago that any award, win, or prize that is determined by voting has no merit. It's a very good rule to live by- not having to worry about the popularity of people and things.

Frankly, I'm glad Mario's not going. Perhaps it will be motivation for him going forward next season.

So much can still change between now and Feb. I fully expect a lot of guys to drop out - especially those that have deep playoff runs.

I voted for Dalemurphy but he didn't get in. Proof that there's nothing to it.

Someone needs to go Tania Harding on an AFC DE and get Mario in.

I think Demps was playing Free Safety. I'm not sure if they voted on seperate Safety positions, but maybe that was the reason.
