    Will be starting in half an hour.

    likely:

    AJ
    Mario (probably not that deserving though)

    Possibles:

    Schaub (deserves it but prob wont make it in the top 3. brady wont go though & the SB qb wont go so he should get there)
    Cushing ( should go but you never know with rookies)
    Demeco (his best yr imo despite no ints)

    Outside shot:

    Pollard
    JJ

    AJ is a sure thing. The rest, well, maybe.

    Mario deserves a make up Pro Bowl bid for being snubbed in 07

    Isn't the pro bowl scheduled the week before the Super Bowl this year? If that's so, that has to be the most stupid thing I've ever heard of.

    I hope I understood the scheduling wrong.

    No, I think you're right. I think the Pro Bowl is scheduled for 1/31/10 and the Super Bowl is scheduled for 2/7/10.... Unfortunately.

    They move the thing out of Hawaii and everything gets screwed up.

    Holy cow, I just googled it and it's true. And you're right: it absolutely is the stupidest thing the NFL has ever done.

    What team going to the Super bowl is going to allow their players to risk injury in a meaningless game?

    My God, that is just stupid beyond belief.

    I think its stupid too but the Pro Bowl was dying in Hawaii... ticket sales were so bad last year it was almost blacked out if I remember... the thinking here is to take all the celebrities and fan fare that'll already be there for the Super Bowl and have it rub off on their dying event the Pro Bowl.
