    My guesses for Texans pro-bowlers:

    Andre
    Schaub
    Cushing (maybe, still a rookie)
    Mario (maybe)

    Although Schaub deserves it, the pro bowl qbs will probably be

    Manning
    Brady
    Rivers.

    And i would've said JJ could have a shot as a return specialist, but Cribbs has that in the bag now.


    Cushing and Demeco both deserve to make it, and i could see Pollard maybe getting in as a reserve. OD would have been a lock had he stayed healthy.

    Locks (even with the politics): AJ and Cushing

    Shaub "should" be in with Rivers and Manning, but might lose out to Tom "Hollywood" Brady.

    Ryans "should" be in but depends what they do with Lewis, Harris and Morrison. Who knows if they will carry 5 or 6 LBs...but wouldn't be surprised if they list Bullock on the team becuase of his Picks and Deflections even though he is hurt.

    As much as I would like to see Pollard on the list, I don't think he makes in in unless Dawkins decides not to play. Branch has a lot of tackles for OAK, but clearly that is becuase their D sucks, he's done nothing on the passing D.

    Bell, Wilson and Brown aren't going to turn it down if they get selected.

    I think AJ and Cushing are definitely in. Schaub should be in but he may only make it as an alternate. If not for the injury OD would certainly have made it. I think Ryans is a good bet to make it as well. I think Pollard might be named as a 2nd or 3rd alternate but won't get in unless there is an injury.

    Tom "Hollywood" Brady has one more TD and two less picks than Schaub, but I'm with you.

    He also has 22 less plays over 20 yards. I figure leading the NFL in passing ought to be good for something.

    I'm not saying Schaub isn't deserving. I'm saying most people are too lazy to really analyze and they'll go straight to TD's v. INT's. I'm completely with you; 60 plays over 20 is hugely impressive.

    Considering the Pro Bowl is basically a popularity contest, I reckon Brady, Manning and Rivers will be the the first 3 chosen. Schaub will get chosen as an alternate.

    I wouldn't even be surprised if only AJ comes in.

    In all honesty, AJ is the only lock we have. Cushing, Meco, and Schaub all deserve as well, and Mario could get in due to popularity, but we'll just wait and see.

    Actually, there are only 3 true 4-3 DE's in the AFC that are ahead of Mario in sacks. Freeney (13.5), Schobel (10) and Mathis (9.5). Dumervil, Woodley, Harrison, Banta-Cain and Porter are all 3-4 OLBs. Not that that matters or anything.

    Same, I have a strange feeling.

    Checking PFT and other sources for any news on any starters. Nothing yet.

    I like the way on the NFL.com's home page they have a story showing Miles Austin, Wes Welker and Matt Schaub with a caption that says "Pro Bowlers?"....

    And BTW, right below that is a place to vote for Cush for Rookie of the week.

    Linky in case you missed in the other thread: NFL.com

    McKinnie's an OT, but okay.

    Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, defensive end Mario Williams and linebackers DeMeco Ryans and Brian Cushing were selected Tuesday to play for the AFC in the Pro Bowl

    Johnson, who will make his franchise-record fourth appearance, was named a starter for the Jan. 31 game, which moves from Honolulu to Miami.

    Quarterback Matt Schaub, wide receiver/kick returner Jacoby Jones and fullback Vonta Leach were named alternates

    Good to see Leach get some recognition. I'm happy to see him named as an alternate.

    No Bengals made the Pro Bowl.
    :foottap:

    Even though they won their division and have, probably, the comeback player of the year in Benson.

    I hope this pisses them off so badly that they take it out on the Jets like Hakeem did David Robinson.

    What doesn't make sense, is that this was his weakest season, of the three he's been here.
