    already did. Only ones I see actually making it are 80, 81 (locks) 59 (probable) and 56 (possible).

    I don't see how Schaub get's voted in due to the popularity contest and the other higher profile QB's in the AFC. If he finishes the season #1 in yards and TD's and we don't make the playoffs I could totally see him getting snuffed. (voting should be allowed through week 16 I think). Then again I think fans shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Owen actually has his work cut out for him. Dallas Clark and Antonio Gates are probably the frontrunners considering they are having great seasons (not as quite as good as OD to this point) and it is a popularity contest. Heath Miller could also be a wild card, no doubt Steeler fans are going to stuff the boxes for him.

    Schaub has a great shot to get in, because remember - this year the Pro Bowl is the week BEFORE the Super Bowl, and anyone participating in the Super Bowl won't play in the Pro Bowl.

    You get 3 QBs for each conference, and there's a pretty good chance that one of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, or Big Ben will be playing in the SB, so as long as Schaub stays healthy and keeps playing at a high level, I actually think he has a really good shot.

    Make sure that in any of the races that the Texans deserve to get in, but their are more popular choices, in front of them, DON'T vote for the more popular players. All that does in the end is hurt our Texan's chances. After all, i think our only shoe-in is Andre Johnson. So if you want to vote for Schaub, don't vote for Peyton or Tom Brady.

    I could care less about the Pro Bowl thus I don't want any Texans to make the squad. I don't want them playing in games that don't for much. Football is too violent for money making popularity useless games.

    All-Pro is where it's all at, anyway!

    Don't worry, guys. I still can't help myself. I voted. I'll always support my Texans but I meant what I said above.

    I'd vote, but the page goes blank after I'm finished w/ the WRs.

    Also, don't the fan votes only count for like 1/3? I thought fans were 1/3, and sportswriters and players/coaches made up the other 2/3.

    Last year Phillip Rivers had a 60% completion percentage, 4000 yards, 34 TDs and only 11 INTs for a 105 QB rating, AND the Chargers made the playoffs

    And he STILL didn't get voted in.

    Above him:
    Peyton, Favre, Cutler, Collins

    Luckily 3/4 of those guys are out of the running this year,

    but Peyton is a lock and Brady is a lock, so Schaub getting in is going to take a miracle

    AS long as Schaub was leading our team through the playoff's I'd be fine not seeing him at the Pro-bowl...:wild:
