Default Re: Texan Pro Bowlers 08'!

Mario and Andre are the only ones who are going to go.

Vonta Leach is the one other guy I think definitely SHOULD go.

Slaton, Daniels, Kris Brown, and Winston should at least finish near the top of the best of the rest.

I guess Jacoby should be considered if they have a specific punt returner spot.

Don't be suprised if DeMeco makes it based on name recognition alone.

He was hurt early in the season but his play has been elevated over the past few weeks and he's looking like his old self again.

I can agree with this. Nick from HT.com gave the preliminary fan votes in his blog. MW, AJ and D-Ryans are all top 5.

Quote:
WIDE RECEIVER
1. Denver Broncos Marshall, Brandon 232234
2. Indianapolis Colts Wayne, Reggie 223583
3. Houston Texans Johnson, Andre 198106
4. New England Patriots Moss, Randy 188138
5. Pittsburgh Steelers Ward, Hines 175818
Andre Johnson is a distant third in voting among AFC wide receivers despite the fact that he leads not only the AFC but the entire NFL with 955 receiving yards. The two-time Pro Bowler is third in the league with 71 receptions. Marshall has 63 catches for 803 yards. Wayne has 56 grabs for 790 yards.

DEFENSIVE END
1. Houston Texans Williams, Mario 163371
2. Indianapolis Colts Freeney, Dwight 152659
3. Tennessee Titans Vanden Bosch, Kyle 136928
4. Tennessee Titans Kearse, Jevon 116498
5. Pittsburgh Steelers Smith, Aaron 67436
At this point, Mario Williams looks like he won’t be snubbed from the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive season. A year after finishing third in the NFL with 14 sacks, Super Mario leads all AFC defensive linemen (ends and tackles) with eight sacks.

INSIDE LINEBACKER
1. Baltimore Ravens Lewis, Ray 168566
2. Pittsburgh Steelers Farrior, James 102515
3. Pittsburgh Steelers Foote, Larry 65078
4. New England Patriots Bruschi, Tedy 49780
5. Houston Texans Ryans, DeMeco 41536
DeMeco Ryans, who started for the AFC in the Pro Bowl last year, is going to need a surge of votes to help him make a return trip to Honolulu. He leads the Texans with 73 tackles this season and leads all NFL defenders over the last three seasons with 280 solo tackles. Ryans posted back-to-back 11-tackle games in Weeks 10 and 11.

Owen Daniels should make it. How many TEs go?

AJ and Mario should be locks. Demeco, not so much this year, due to injury. Kris Brown ought to go, as should Leach. That's about it for me, I think.

Two TE's and then into alternates. Gonzalez is out front in the #1 position with OD in #2 in the AFC so far this season. Problem is Gates could easily jump several spots based on past performances.

OD is perceived as a lesser TE to those two, so that will determine whether he goes or not, but IMO, the only TE clearly better than him this year is Witten.

Andre Johnson and Mario Williams are probably near locks. If you look at Slaton's stats, he should be going as well (all the other backs you consider pro bowlers are having worse seasons that Slaton). Daniels is 2nd in the AFC in catches and yards (behind Tony Gonzalez) so he is probably deserving as well.

I believe the players and coaches vote this week also. Does anybody know if their votes carry more weight than the fans vote? If so, how does it work?

Won't happen but he probably deserves it. He has the highest average among AFC returners with over 10 returns and the only people with more than one TD return are Ginn Jr. and Figurs whose averages are half as much.

Now that I look at it, Ginn did get his 2 TD's on just 6 punt returns but that cuts both ways--a part time punt return gig shouldn't make the probowl IMO.

If he makes it to the Pro Bowl as a Returner he'll be following in the footsteps of Mathis.....oh no, wait.

besides the obvious in Mario, AJ, and possibly DeMeco, I truly think Slaton is one of the top 4 backs in the AFC this season. Based on performance and not on potential, Chris Johnson, Thomas Jones, and Slaton should be the AFC rb's in Hawaii next year.

Agreed. Too bad that doesn't matter. LT will always make the pro bowl as long as he's not hurt. Same with Antonio Gates.

If they pick 3 RBs, they'll be Chris Johnson, Thomas Jones, and LT.
