    Now make a case that there is a corner in the the NFL that has earned his place in the probowl more than Dunta Robinson.

    T. James from Cincinatti with 7 interceptions. That's the only possibility I see for beating out Robinson.

    just because he should go, does not mean that he will. This happens every year, and it will be especially hard for a rookie to make it in. People vote very biased for the probow, including for their home teams, for veterans with marque names, and for people that are showman. Dunta is having a great season, but i doubt he will be in hawaii

    GW is right.. Dante IS deserving and I hope he does go,but outside of Houston .. We don't get much press coverage so it will be tough.
    But it would be great if he could go!

    If I'm not mistaken the Pro Bowl voting is a mix of fans, coaches, and players voting. I'm not sure of what percentage each gets, but D. Rob could get into the Pro Bowl this year if he's impressed opposing coaches and players enough. I agree that he won't get many votes outside of Houston, but I'm sure all the coaches that decided to challenge Dunta instead of Glenn have a lasting memory of him picking off their QB. It is very tough for a rookie to make it to the Pro Bowl, but Bolden made it last year for the lowly Cardinals. We could potentially have three players make the Pro Bowl from the Texans: Sharper, AJ, and Robinson. Sharper and DRob have the toughest road to get in to the Pro Bowl though. You can pencil in Ray Lewis as the starting MLB already. Hopefully they all make it to Hawaii.

    I believe each has an equal 1/3 of the vote. Bolden made it because he had ridiculous numbers and some amazing catches that were all over ESPN. Dunta wont have that advantage, his interceptions have not been the most spectacular plays so people wont notice as much. He may get some of the coaches and players noticing, but it is a tough road for him to Hawaii. I would say that in a year or two, he will be feared and recognized by all. I think aside from his INTs, what i think people will see is that he goes for hits like a safety. He can lay the wood.

    I agree. When the Texans start winning, Dunta will be in the Pro Bowl. Until then, Bailey, Law, & McAlister are your AFC Pro Bowl corners.

    Champ has been far from a shut down CB this year, in fact he has gotten lit up several times this year.

    Actually, I believe Robinson has ProBowl numbers. However, because he plays in Houston and because he is part of a team that gives up many TD passes and because he is a rookie, he will not make it.

    Robinson could be viewed as one of those rookies that even though he exceeded his rookie season, he also must show that he can do it next year also before they give him a ProBowl nod.

    The Pro Bowl may be out of reach but he has a real shot at defensive rookie of the year. A good game against Peyton could really help him out.

    It's kind of hard to think that D Rob will make it to the pro bowl in his rookie season when the league leader in tackles last year, Jamie Sharper didn't even make it. Not to mention he's putting up big numbers again. Nothing would make me happier than to see D Rob and Jamie make it to Hawaii this year. Yet I don't see it happening due to the team that they play for.

    well he may have, but if a guy feels he our his team is beign disrespected than he's gonna say something. D-Rob plays with a lot of intensity and if he dont make the Pro Bowl its not because lack of talent, its cause our record ! He sure can put a hit on people though !

    The Pro Bowl is a popularity contest. Our defense stinks so that can't help Dunta's case. Plus, how often do you see #2 CBs in the pro bowl?
