I feel bad for Kris Brown and Leach; they were both very deserving. Congrats to Mario and AJ nonetheless.

What does that say for Brown's learning curve that 4 of the top 5 DE's are in our division, and he gets to practice against one every day?

Hope this is enough to make everyone give him a little bit of slack

Default Re: Mario in the Pro Bowl

My guess is the players and coaches will solidify AJ as the 3rd pick, if not move him higher, since they have 2/3 of the votes. His peers know how great he is, and with them, I think its more of a respect thing than a popularity thing.

Default Re: Mario in the Pro Bowl

I can't help back to Mario's first season and all of the threads that proclaimed that the Mario pick would be a bust if he was not selected to the Pro-Bowl.

We all knew half way through last season that Mario was special. He got shafted last year - and really solidified himself this year as one of the league's best.

Congrats Mario. Congrats Texas front office. Congrats to all of the fans who defended the pick when it wasn't a popular choice.

Fan voting sucks. Bob Sanders is on the list with 5 games played on the season. Frankly, I think this should be like the "close doors" button on elevators. Its there to make the hamsters feel good but it isn't hooked up to anything.

That is why in the NFL, unlike baseball, peers and coaches have 2/3 of the vote. Those are the guys who make sure guys like Leach go to Hawaii.

Other than hospitals, it isn't hooked up in 99% of buildings. It's the placebo button.

There are some questionable folks going to the pro bowl, that's for sure. In any case, congrats to Mario and AJ. Glad to see AJ going again, and Mario finally getting his due.

that is if they make it past the final vote counting. I'm pretty sure they will.
