    Nothing says Pro-Bowl QB like 156 ypg.

    Yes, and Schaub just may be starting if Peyton goes to the Super
    Bowl.

    Certainly starting to look that way. Hard to believe that all 3 of the original QBs won't be at the Pro Bowl. Who is going to replace Peyton if it comes to that?

    Vince gets in his first year with some pretty ugly numbers, followed up by Kerry Collins getting in last year after throwing a barn burning 12 tds and 7 ints, and now Vince gets back in after playing only half the season over the likes of a Joe Flacco.... I just don't see Tennessee as a place that is some Pro Bowl QB haven.

    wow. The Pro Bowl is becoming more of a joke than I ever thought possible.

    well, it'll look good on his resume one day as they enshrine him in Canton.

    Not.

    Really. But still, it could be interesting in a reversed way, keeping up with who actually goes. LOL

    I was happy for Schaub making it in because he has the stats to back it up, VY getting in is beyond stupid. There must be more parasitic flaming meatball fans than I thought. Pro Bowl is a joke.

    I figured this kind of thing would happen when the Pro Bowl changed dates. I guess it remains to be seen rather it's a good thing or not.

    Kind of a reach for him to go this year. 9 games isn't much of a body of work.

    Joe Flacco, Carson Palmer, Kyle Orton, even David Garrard. Why are these players so undeserving?

    VY should be ashamed to be in the presence of all those AFC pro bowlers.

    Is anyone who made it to the playoffs playing? I thought it was more a consolation prize for teams that didn't make it to the Super Bowl, but it seems to be scaled down from that. Did the Titans Kicker make it?

    I wonder if this is what the powers that be envisioned when changing the date.

    3 AFC South starters. Next thing you know, Rivers will go down and Garrard will be put in to complete the AFC South.

    I hate the Pro Bowl.... just another damn preseason game.

    He took the same team that went 0-6 and went 8-2 with them. Football is about more than stats. VY may not make as big of a difference on the stat sheet as some other guys in the league but he makes just as much an impact on the field, if not bigger. Just because he doesn't throw for 250 ypg doesn't mean he isn't worthy.
